  • Cornerstone & Pinnacle Inc.


  • africa.png

    The United States, the United Kingdom, Japan, China and even India have all pounced on the opportunities for professional growth that lie in Nigeria, the fastest growing economy on earth. And I believe that it's about time Canadian businesses joined the fray. As Nigeria's needs primarily revolve around areas like education, energy, infrastructure, technology and agriculture, we understand that the time is now to forge a bond between our two countries for economic prosperity.
