The Founder and President of the Afro-Arab Group of Companies, Ambassador Alhaji Salamu Amadu, expresses his elation at being recognized among the 2024 100 Most Influential Africans by the Pan African Youth Leadership Foundation.
In an interview, Ambassador Salamu Amadu commended the organizers for acknowledging his work, expressing gratitude to the Almighty God for the honor. He sees such recognition as a call to continue his efforts for his motherland and the entire African continent.
Ambassador Salamu Amadu joins counterparts from Nigeria, South Sudan, The Gambia, Namibia, and other African countries in this prestigious list. The Awards ceremony is scheduled for April 13, 2024, at the British Council, Accra, Ghana.
Born and raised in the deprived Zongo community of Maamobi in Ghana’s Capital, Ambassador Salamu Amadu, now a highly decorated business mogul, serves as a role model for numerous youth in Zongo communities across Ghana.
Under his leadership, the Afro-Arab Group has experienced robust growth. Notably, the Afro-Arab Properties, a subsidiary of the Group, recently launched an affordable housing project in Ghana, featuring a flexible payment plan without interest. This initiative aims to make homeownership more accessible to a broader segment of the population.
