The President, in a statement on Thursday by his Media Adviser, Femi Adesina, said he shared in the joy of the occasion and thanked the Almighty God, who has showered Otedola with grace for business success and prosperity.

He said this clearly reflected in his knack for investments in key sectors of the economy like oil and gas, shipping, real estate, finance, and energy.

According to Buhari, as the business mogul turns 60, he affirmed that his interest in the real sector, creating employment for many, supporting infrastructure development, and opening opportunities for others to thrive remains an asset to the nation, while recognizing his kind interventions by helping individuals, families, and the underprivileged.

“President Buhari celebrates Otedola for always honoring the call to national service, serving as a member of the Nigerian Investment Promotion Council (NIPC), and National Economic Management Council, and consistently providing a sounding board for economic and development policies.

“The President prays that God will keep the investor and his family in good health and strength,” Adesina added.
