He wouldn’t want any festivities considering the fact that his younger brother, Deji died in January this year.
Rather, the Group Chief Executive Officer At Oando, Mr. Adewale Tinubu would prefer visiting the orphanages, lending a helping hand to widows as well as the less-privileged. That way, his passion to help and the never-failing generosity would make an impact in the lives of others.
Though not in town currently, the birthday boy has made adequate preparations for his passion—he must see smiles on the faces of the less privileged.
Ironically, many are willing to share in his joy. Why? The “birthday boy” means so many things to so many people in and outside the country.
Just as Diamonds are uncommon stones, same is Tinubu who is also a rare gem and a great man, who sees wealth as divine from the creator. Like some of his peers, providence smiled on him by placing him on the Forbes list as one of the most industrious, influential and wealthy men in Africa.
The Oando Plc. head honcho, did not just stumble on those feat with mere word of mouth; but with sheer dint of hard work and ceaseless prayers to his creator. The husky voiced entrepreneur loves to pull people around him up. He believes that “the amount of wealth you gather in life does not make you a successful man but the amount of people you have pulled up from poverty and render selfless assistance to.’’
Still wondering how he got the astronomic rise in business?
Impressively, Wale Tinubu a desirable model for many Nigerian youths has been at the helm of Nigeria’s Oando Plc, formerly Unipetrol, an integrated energy services provider, for several years with meritorious records.
Tinubu is credited with leading indigenous firm Oando to the top of its class in providing services that cover upstream, energy services, gas, power and international supply and trading of refined products.
This reticent, purposeful and energetic star has consistently delivered his vision of leading Oando to become a world-class company, with a global reach, and show the world that Nigeria, and Nigerians can produce home grown companies that are able to compete favourably on the global scale.
Happy birthday, Mr Tinubu!
