Wakanow Restructures As A Global Brand | Appoints New CEOs

Wakanow, an African travel agency that has its origins in Nigeria, is restructuring as a global brand. According to a brand press release shared by Techpoint Africa, the company is undergoing a revolution.


While Wakanow has its eyes set on global expansion, it is choosing to start small with a focus on West Africa, before moving on to the continent at large and the rest of the world.


As part of the restructure, it is now going to be known as a Group entity with Adebayo Adedeji at the helm as CEO and Adenike Macaulay as the CEO of Wakanow Nigeria, its current main business.
