There is a general notion that most billionaires often come in for a lot of criticism. Whether justified or not, there are some out there who are doing their best to break the mold. From being socially responsible to giving generously or mentoring start-ups entrepreneurs, some members of this wealthy class do not see being rich to mean being bad.
Thus they open their wings for others to fly. One of these few is the billionaire tech mogul, Dr. Leo Stan Ekeh. While the amiable Zinox Group founder understands that some persons could have been in a situation in their lives when they did something good but had an horrid experience in return, Ekeh has, however, continued to be a boon to so many struggling entrepreneurs and start-ups who have enjoyed his mentorship and support them to grow. And he hasn’t stopped till date. But in recent times, this Imo State-born mogul has been perplexed over the rehashing of some stale old news items doing the rounds in an attempt to soil his reputation. Spotlight learnt the smear campaign was over a long-drawn dispute involving a multimillion naira contract with the Federal Inland Revenue Service which saw a certain entrepreneur stand trial for falsely petitioning the Federal Government over some alleged fraud. Of course, with the attendant frenzy of social media controversies, Ekeh has had to battle a flurry of insinuations and counter a barrage of vicious narratives.
Apart from being a giant in innovation and technology, Ekeh is also an astute businessman with decades of successes under his belt. Since the 66-year old Ekeh started out as a businessman with a record of incisive entrepreneurship, he has continued to make many of his competitors green with envy. Considering the successes of his chain of businesses, it is evident that he enjoys uncommon grace. For this and more, the consummate businessman has never hidden the fact that he will not abuse such amazing grace of God in his life.
