Tony Elumelu, the Nigerian entrepreneur and chairman of Heirs Holdings, speaks to AFP in an interview on October 11, 2013 in Washington, DC. Elumelu has promised to invest $2.5 billion in the "Power Africa" initiative of US President Barack Obama which aims to expand energy in sub-Saharan Africa, where some two-thirds of people lack regular power.
