Bola Tinubu

Great men are celebrated for their successes and achievements. This is indeed a fact.

Senator Bola Tinubu and Otunba Tomori Williams are two great men who have achieved a lot.

Tinubu is known for his exploits in the politics of Nigeria, rising from being a National Democratic Coalition (NADECO), chieftain to turning the All Progressives Congress (APC), from winning state elections to becoming the ruling party.

The exploits of Williams in the Real Estate industry are also mesmerising, as he has changed the face of the sector building state of the art properties scattered in Lagos State and its environs via his company, T. Williams Constructions Nigeria Limited.

Like Tinubu, Williams is also known for his humility, an attribute which has seen him been extolled in several circles.

Mentored by Barrister Anthony Akpovi of Olotu Property, today, Williams is the MD/CEO of several blue-chip companies including Maintek property and MD Olaleye New Town Development Ltd.

The duo of Tinubu and Williams added a year to their age on Friday, March 29, as they both celebrated in style. While Tinubu celebrated 66 years, Williams turned 50.

“It has nothing to do with me feeling special other than to just give glory to God Almighty because he has been so good, so kind to me. I cherish every day of my life. So this is just part of showing appreciation to my Lord.  50 years is nothing but a number, but it’s a number that makes me reflect on where I am coming from, where I am and also look at where I’m going. I’m a very, very religious person; very spiritual. There’s nothing I wish I could adjust because every man has his curse in life, which is his destiny. Mine; at least led me to where I am today,” he said when asked why he decided to break from his norm and throw a birthday party.

There is no disputing the fact that Femi Otedola is a winner.

Though the man might not be where he used to be financially, having not been ranked in recent years by Forbes Africa among the continent’s top billionaires, this has not reduced him one bit.

Having established himself in the Oil and Gas industry with his 75 percent stake in Forte Oil, he got tired of the game and sought a new playing ground.

Although he did not give the details of the iron that he is set to bring out of the fire, he took to Instagram to announce that it is his biggest deal ever. Indeed, this is a big win for him.

Freedom is never appreciated until when it is stripped. This is indeed true.

 

The duo of Maurice Iwu, former Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), and Abdullahi Babalele, the son-in-law of Atiku Abubakar would agree.

Recently remanded for finance-related issues, they were both stripped of privileges of mingling and associating freely.

Now free, both men will appreciate their newfound freedom.

 The deeds of the past have a way of catching up with public officeholders.

 

It might take weeks, months or even years, but eventually light overcomes darkness.

 

For Winifred Oyo-Ita, it appears the ghost of her past eventually caught up with her.

 

Regarded as one of the most powerful women in Nigeria being the Head of Service of the Federation, an alleged N3bn contract scam said to have happened several years ago when she was a Federal Permanent Secretary under the Federal Ministry of Special Duties and Inter-Governmental Affairs is currently haunting Oyo-Ita.
