Speaking on the inaugural meeting, Dr Marcel Mbamalu, the Editor-in-Chief/Publisher of Newstide Publications, said: “Ordinarily, an Editorial Board meeting is a routine for any serious newspaper organisation, but this inaugural session is significant many ways; significant, in the sense that it marks turning point in implementing Prime Business Africa’s overall content strategy.

“I am more than convinced that, with the quality of members we have on the Editorial Advisory Board, we would not disappoint expectant Nigerians and, of course, the rest of Africa.”
