Kaku Nubukpo and Pascal Agboyibor among Africa’s most influential figures in 2019

(Togo First) - Two Togolese, Kako Nubukpo, and Pascal Agboyibor were featured in Jeune Afrique’s recent top 100 most influential Africans. 

The first, Prof. Nubukpo, is the dean of the Faculty of economics and management at the University of Lomé and a former Togolese minister of planning. The scholar who ranked 53rd on the media’s index is well-known by the press for his views on the CFA. In West Africa, he is among the most heard figures to discuss monetary reforms, especially those concerning the CFA which for many is a relic of colonial times that must be discarded or reinvented. 

"I would like to thank Jeune Afrique for listing me as one of Africa’s 100 most influential figures," Nubukpo tweeted after the rankings were released. 

The second Togolese featured on the list is Pascal Agboyibor, a business lawyer who worked at Orrick and currently heads the Asafo & Co firm whose activities focus on Africa. Gécamines is one of the firm’s many important clients. It is worth noting that the lawyer who was ranked second best out of 100 business law leaders in Africa is the son of the late Yaovi Agboyibor, Togo’s first Prime Minister.
