                   ALIKO DANGOTE                                       GOVERNOR AJIMOBI

By Tofarati Ige and Juliet Ebirim 

As the richest black man in Africa, who sits atop Africa’s most diversified manufacturing conglomerate, no lofty accolades are out of order for Aliko Dangote. His path has been serrated with honours upon honours, so, it is no big surprise that University of Ibadan should find him worthy of the honour of the degree of Doctor of Science, which they conferred on him couple of days ago.

As expected, encomiums poured in from different angles. This is no surprise too, because when you live in the upper crust of the reef only gold fishes come visiting and they turned up for Dangote. But one person stood out among many that greeted the billionaire on his yet another honour and it is Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State.
In his message to the Dangote Group Chairman, the governor highlighted how close he is to the businessman, eulogising his personal attributes,perhaps, louder than any well wishers. “It gives me great personal pleasure to celebrate a friend and a brother whose towering accomplishments continue to exalt the names of Nigeria and Africa.
Yours is the inspiring story of a gallant fighter who snatched victory from the jaws of grim adversity not that of a prince unto whose laps greatness was thrown…” and on and on the poetic message went. Recall Governor Ajimobi was not always a politician, he was in fact a corporate titan prior to his foray into politics. When he was the Chief Executive Office of National Oil, now Conoil, their paths must have crossed on several occasions.
