Group Chairman, United Bank for Africa (UBA) Plc, Tony Elumelu has said he does not in any way see himself as an accomplished individual, rather he continually finds ways to add value to the society.

He spoke on Thursday in Lagos, during the second Graduate Management Acceleration Programme (GMAP) organised by the bank for young bankers who have joined its workforce.

In response to a question from one of the graduands on whether his successes in business and life place him at the level of self actualisation.

Elumelu said despite his business exploits, he still feels that there are so much more to be accomplished, especially in bringing solutions to the different challenges facing Africa and its citizens.

He said it was the need to turn things around that prompted him to start the Tony Elumelu Foundation (TEF) to promote small and medium enterprises and democratise luck in the business space.

He said: “I don’t feel accomplished.  For me, greater human impact is key. My needs have been changing. I always think of ways to invest more in the education and health sector for the benefit of mankind. Before I go, my desire is that problems facing the world today should be addressed”.

Elumelu said that investments in TEF were not out of abundance, but genuine desire to create hope and opportunities for others.
