He has a milk of kindness flowing in him; this is what drew the FoodpreneurNews management team to him. Give him a little opportunity, he won’t stop talking passionately about how he loved his country of birth, despite the fact that he has spent over 30years abroad, and want to contribute his quota to the socio-economic growth of Nigeria and the inhabitants, not minding the race or religion., which the political office holders are using to divide us. Based in Europe, he is presently the Vice President of Belgium Luxembourg-Nigeria Chamber of Commerce. He is an Anti-corruption and Good governance activist.

For positively impacting people’s life, giving helping hand and promoting African multicultural food value chain, Mr. Ajibade Yusuf is our ‘FOOD CHAMPION OF THE WEEK’.
