The Chairman of Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Small and Medium Enterprise Group
(LCCI/SME), Daniel Dickson-Okezie, has said that the book, Nigerian Billionaires and Boardroom Gurus, Speak on How to Start and Succeed in Business, would go a very long way in kick-starting
industrialization in Nigeria and help to eradicate unemployment and poverty in the country.
Speaking after reviewing the book, which is written by Peter Anosike, a popular Nigerian journalist and development economist, Dickson-Okezie said that the book would be of immense help to those who want to go into business as well as those who want to succeed in different kinds of business.
According to him, the book provides the answer to the reason why a lot of businesses fail in their infant stage, while those who managed to survive, instead of thriving, they would have stunted growth. He said that the book also provides the answer to the real reason why there are no big companies in Nigeria and how that can be possible.
His words: “Peter Anosike has gradually risen to become an authority in entrepreneurship development, leadership and mentoring. Having read some of his books, including Dangote`s Ten Commandments on Money (Lessons on How to Make Money From One of The World`s Richest Men), I have no doubt that he has a lot to give to entrepreneurship scholars in particular and the business community in general.
It is a fact that the task of creating, managing and sustaining a business is a major challenge to
entrepreneurs. This book brings out the views of the key players in the industry, past and present, on how to overcome this challenge.
“The book, Nigerian Billionaires and Boardroom Gurus Speak on How to Start and Succeed In Business, can be described as a masterpiece. In fact, it is the greatest money book ever written by an African author and as an SME leader and member of the organised private sector, I am boldly recommending the book to aspiring entrepreneurs, upstarts and owners of businesses. If you want to start and succeed in business, this book is a must read. If you want to know why small businesses stay small and how to grow your own, this book is also a must read.”
Dickson-Okezie also said that entrepreneurship scholars, business development service providers
enterprise trainers as well as policy and strategic decision makers would find the book very useful.
