Jim Ovia, the chairman of Zenith Bank, has been named the ‘make it’ entrepreneur of the month award for September.

‘make it’ is Nigeria’s first online newspaper for entrepreneurs.

The banker, who is also the chairman of Quantum Capital Nigeria, is the founder of the Jim Ovia Foundation, an organisation dedicated to empowering youths and technology entrepreneurs in the country.

The editorial board of ‘make it’ chose Ovia for his advocacy and support of Nigerian youths and the development of ICT entrepreneurship in the country.

The recognition also comes with the badge of honour for outstanding entrepreneurs.

‘make it’ said as part of its corporate goals, it aims to inspire more Nigerians to embrace entrepreneurship as the surest path to a brighter future, by regularly celebrating, in a spectacular way, entrepreneurs who have broken great barriers to excel.

“We are convinced that honouring distinguished and successful entrepreneurs will motivate millions of younger Nigerian entrepreneurs who have almost given up hope,” the newspaper said.

In August, Folorunsho Alakija, vice chairman of Famfa Oil, was the winner of the award.

Every month, “make it” chooses an entrepreneur who has, for many years, built successful businesses and mentored others, for the honour.
