Fore­most in­dus­tri­al­ist and the Aare of La­gos, Chief rasaq okoya, cut his teeth in busi­ness at an early age. Armed with only an ele­men­tary school cer­tifi­cate, the as­tute en­tre­pre­neur has gone on to record unim­peach­able suc­cess in a field where even pro­fes­sors have failed woe­fully. As our Cover per­son­al­ity for the week, Okoya shared mem­o­ries of his early days in busi­ness and sev­eral other fas­ci­nat­ing is­sues. Just few days short of his 80th birth­day, the Ceo of ele­ganza Group of Com­pa­nies has not lost his wits as he ac­cu­rately re­called events of sev­eral years ago. You will find the in­ter­view on pages 21, 26 and 39.

He also spoke about the com­edy in­dus­try and film­mak­ing. Turn to page 24 for the in­ter­view. Flip to page 23 for a piece on busi­ness eti­quette you should ob­serve to en­sure that you have smooth of­fi­cial in­ter­ac­tions this year. see you next week!
