“AfCFTA represents a historic opportunity for this continent, and I am committed to utilizing our expertise to support its successful implementation, ” he declared.
With a Master’s degree in Civil Law from McGill University, Canada, and over 13 years of experience in his field, Ezenagu has earned a reputation as a prolific writer, with his impactful articles grazing renowned journals.
In Kenya, Ezenagu’s appointment is not merely a career milestone; it symbolizes the growing international collaboration and expertise exchange in Africa.
As the continent strives for economic integration and development through initiatives like AfCFTA, having individuals of Ezenagu’s calibre leading the way is an encouraging sign of progress.
