Chief Ugwokeh Nnaemeka and Dr. Jimoh Ibrahim
We, the management of
Congratulate our mentor and business coach,
Barrister Dr. Jimoh Ibrahim, CFR
As he marks the 50th anniversary of his birth.

Folks, this is a man who was born into a home ravaging with abject poverty. He studied with tears, conquered poverty and became a billionaire at the record age of 36. Dr. Ibrahim is among the very few Nigerians that got different post graduate degrees from University of Oxford, University of Cambridge and Harvard University. He has three difference masters degrees and a PhD. This Donald Trump of Africa is the biggest investor in real estate in Nigeria with over 60 properties in Victoria Garden City (VGC) alone.

This Ondo State born business tycoon and politician is known for creating wealth out of nothing. He is the first Nigerian to start bringing bank branches into petrol filling stations. Have you not seen branches of Ecobank in Energy petrol stations? Other owners of patrol filling stations have copied him. Dr. Ibrahim’s nickname is Mr. Turnaround. He is a corporate surgeon who acquires sick companies, carries out corporate diagnoses on them, takes them to corporate theatre, operates on them and the companies becomes healed.

Sir, we, at Tectono Business Review, are tapping from the grace of success you carry. May the same God that took your conglomerate, Energy Group, to the peak also take Tectono Group to the apogee. As you turn 50 today, we pray that the Almighty Father continues to bless and enlarge your coast.
