    Nigeria’s most Passionate Advocate is a Medical Doctor

    Dr. Pedus Eweama is a Nigerian Medical Doctor in Perth. He used to be a professional Nurse when he first arrived in Australia. But after a few short years, he enrolled in Medical School and eventually qualified as a Medical Doctor. Dr. Eweama also serves as President of the Nigerian Association of Western Australia. He is very concerned about the negative image of Nigeria and Nigerians across the world. He saw an opportunity to correct this when he was invited for the launch of Gibbous Moon Over Lagos, a book written by Pamela Watson. His invitation included a chance to speak to the audience. "There is obviously more to Nigeria than what you read in the Media," he said.

    A Woman Who Speaks for Africa's Future - Pamela Watson

    A Woman Who Speaks for Africa's Future - Pamela Watson

    Pamela Watson was born in Perth, Australia where she loved to see the golden sun setting across the Indian ocean to Africa. She followed the trajectory of the sun to Africa, and when she arrived, she did the unthinkable by riding a bicycle all by herself across the continent, traversing a distance of more than 14 thousand kilometers. More than just a bike rider and adventurer, Pamela is also an Author, Entrepreneur and Management consultant in Africa’s toughest business environment – a place called Lagos, a megacity in Nigeria. She knows all about the legendary scams for which Nigeria is famous, but Pamela Watson says Lagos, Nigeria and Africa have a lot more good news stories than the world knows. She describes Africa as having some of the most productive, resilient and creative people on earth. It is a picture she paints most beautifully in her book Gibbous Moon Over Lagos. My thoughtful business conversation with Pamela Watson reveals her mission is to transform views and ideas about modern Africa and encourage business and social enterprise for a continent with a promising future.
