The Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (MAN) has elected Mr Francis Meshioye as its 11th president of the council.

The election took place at the just-concluded 50th annual general meeting held in Lagos.

This followed the completion of the successful four-year tenure of Mr Mansur Ahmed.

Mr Meshioye is the executive director, JMG Limited and some other business corporations, amongst which are, JMG Power Generators Limited, Jamara Operations Limited, Octopus Microfinance Bank and ET & F Investment Limited.

He is also on the board of government parastatal and a member of several government committees.

“Prior to becoming president of the association, he served as chairman of the Infrastructure Committee; chairman of MAN Ikeja Branch; Chairman of Finance and Establishment Committee, and Vice President of Lagos Zone of the Association,” he said.

The newly elected president will bring his wealth of experience in the management of corporate organisations to bear on the leadership of over 2,500 membership organisations.

To the firm, “he is an alumnus of the Federal University of Technology, Akure (FUTA), where he obtained a Master’s degree in Business administration (MBA) in Technology, Marketing and Business Strategy. He also holds a Master’s Degree in International Management as well as a Law Degree, both from the University of Liverpool, England.”

In a statement, MAN said it remains an advocacy group with a vision to be the key driver for industrialisation, sustainable Economic Growth and Development in Nigeria. It was established in 1971 as an umbrella organisation to protect and project the interest of manufacturing industries in Nigeria.

“It is a focal point for communication and consultation between industry on the one hand and the government and the general public on the other,” it said.
