Biography Of Stella Okoli (Emzor) – Networth , Husband , Children – Have you heard of Emzor Pharmaceutical, the makers of the ubiquitous Emzor paracetamol found in practically every Nigerian home and one of the country’s greatest pharmaceutical companies?
Mrs Stella Okoli, on the other hand, is the Chairman and CEO of that firm.
The firm grew from a modest pharmacy store in 1997 to become one of the most popular pharmaceutical enterprises in the country.
Stella Okoli was born in 1944 in Kano, Nigeria’s most populous city. She attended All Saints Elementary School in Onitsha, Anambra State, where she received her primary education.
It is hardly surprising that she is a business success because she is from Nnewi in Anambra State. It’s as though the residents of that town are predisposed to conduct business. It’s no surprise that the hamlet has been dubbed “the little village of billionaires.”
After completing her basic school, she went on to Ogidi Girls Secondary School, where she completed her secondary education. She was then transferred abroad to study pharmacy at the University of Bradford in the United Kingdom, where she finished with a Bachelor’s degree. She is also believed to hold a Master’s degree in Biopharmaceutics from the prestigious University of London.
In January 1977, she established her pharmaceutical firm in Nigeria. Since its start, the firm has created over 50 distinct goods.
Mrs Stella Okoli’s net worth is now believed to be more than $500 million.
