President Muhammadu Buhari has felicitated with the chairman of Board of Trustees of Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry and one of the founding fathers of the Nigerian Association of Chambers of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture (NACCIMA), Chief John Agboola Odeyemi, who clocks 80 on April 4, 2019.
The president joined the business world in celebrating the consummate businessman, industrialist and philanthropist, whose zeal to serve God continues to speak in his service to the nation and humanity, while his dedication to success inspires and produces huge gains for individuals, institutions and communities.
The president said Chief Odeyemi, who holds many titles, including Obasewa of Ife, typifies the virtues that any nation should be proud of seeing in a citizen, which include the fear of God, disciplined and focused lifestyle, and a penchant for excellence through diligent work.
As a Fellow of Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria and member of many blue chip companies within Nigeria and beyond, the president commended Obasewa of Ife’s visionary leadership qualities and his entrepreneurial spirit, urging him to keep sharing his wisdom of prudence and propriety with fellow citizens, public and private institutions.
The president prayed that the almighty God would remember his investments of love in people and the nation, and grant him longer life, good health and more wisdom.
