Dozy Mmobuosi of Nigeria has been added to the Global Advisor Council of the Commonwealth Enterprise and Investment Council (CWEIC), the organization’s official corporate network.
The organization’s statement announcing Mmobuosi’s nomination cited his accomplishments and track record in agricultural financial technologies.
Mmobuosi, the founder and CEO of Tingo Group, was hailed by CWEIC as a “distinguished Nigerian technology entrepreneur and supporter of societal upliftment and technological growth in Africa and beyond.
This comes as Tingo Group was also introduced by CWEIC as a key partner.
Mmobuosi’s Tingo Group offers a platform for around 10 million farmers to access the rest of the world with their goods and ideas thanks to the Dozy Mmobuosi Charity, a foundation that aims to, among other things, address significant health crises in Nigeria, particularly prostate cancer.
Tingo, an Agri-Fintech company, provides subscribers in the agricultural sector with access to a marketplace that enables them to manage their commercial activities of cultivating and selling their products to market participants both locally and globally through the use of smartphones.
According to the CWIEC statement, farmers could ship produce from farms all over Nigeria using Tingo’s ecosystem in both retail and wholesale quantities. Tingo’s system offers real-time pricing directly from the farms and currently has about 9.3 million subscribers, the statement added.
The 56 Commonwealth member countries’ trade and investment are to be facilitated by CWEIC, a commercial, non-profit membership organization having a formal mandate from the Commonwealth Heads of Government.
The purpose of CWEIC is to promote trade and investment by utilizing the Commonwealth’s convening power and reliable network.
Before the introduction of Tingo Group, CWEIC’s network featured about 100 business and governmental Strategic Partners (members), from 30 different countries and territories, such as Standard Chartered, Zenith Bank, Trade & Investment Queensland, and the Government of the Maldives.
