President Muhammadu Buhari has sent warm greetings to business magnate, philanthropist and one of Nigeria’s most renowned entrepreneurs, Chief Michael Adeniyi Adenuga Jnr (GCON), who turns 65 on April 29, 2018.
A statement by Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President (Media & Publicity), said that “President Buhari joins family, friends and the business community in congratulating Chief Adenuga, who rose from a modest background, defied many odds, and realized his dream of setting up and grooming successful companies in the oil and gas, banking and telecom sectors.
“The President commends the business mogul’s deep sense of loyalty and patriotism by investing in sectors that have created jobs for many Nigerians and added strong value in the provision of effective services that make life easier and more comfortable for many in the country, and across the African continent.
“Apart from creating jobs through entrepreneurship, President Buhari re-affirms that Chief Adenuga’s contribution to the development of sports and the entertainment industry remains remarkable, especially as both sectors of the economy continue to provide lifelines for many, and inspiring ingenuity and creativity.
“The President believes Chief Adenuga’s exploration and encouragement of youth entrepreneurship in the country will always be remembered, while his penchant for helping the less privileged through scholarships and healthcare financing deserves more commendations.
“President Buhari prays that the almighty God will grant the Otunba of Ijebu land longer life, good health and more wisdom to continue serving the country and humanity.”
