The publisher of the authoritative African Leadership magazine, Dr Ken Giami, presented the plaque to him at this year?s Ghana Leadership Awards Dinner Gala in Accra at the weekend.

Mr Akpeloo later told the Daily Graphic that the only way the country could make it was when citizens led its development efforts by building successful corporations with global outlook, which are capable of creating jobs for the many unemployed citizens.
?Indigenous entrepreneurship is key in any meaningful development efforts. He urged the government to make youth entrepreneurship a deliberate policy for development,? he stated.
