The Punch - - NEWS -

The Speaker of the House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives, Femi Gba­jabi­amila, has con­grat­u­lated the Chair­man of Ele­ganza Group and RAO Prop­erty In­vest­ment Com­pany, Chief Razaq Okoya, on his 80th birth­day.

The Speaker, in a con­grat­u­la­tory mes­sage is­sued on Satur­day by his Spe­cial Ad­viser on Me­dia and Pub­lic­ity, Lanre La­sisi, said Okoya, a fore­most in­dus­tri­al­ist, is one Nige­rian that has con­trib­uted to the coun­try’s growth in dif­fer­ent ways through his group of com­pa­nies over the years.

Gba­jabi­amila noted with de­light how Okoya helped in re­duc­ing the rate of un­em­ploy­ment in the coun­try by em­ploy­ing thou­sands of Nige­ri­ans un­der his brand.

“It is to the credit of this great Nige­rian that a brand un­der the Ele­ganza Group of Com­pa­nies has be­come a suc­cess story. His en­tire life has been laced with ser­vice to hu­man­ity,” he said.

Also, Gba­jabi­amila eu­lo­gised the Se­nate Pres­i­dent, Ah­mad Lawan, who is mark­ing his 61st birth­day.

The Speaker said Lawan, who has been in the Na­tional As­sem­bly since 1999, serv­ing first in the House and later in the Se­nate, is one Nige­rian that has ac­tively con­trib­uted to the de­vel­op­ment of the coun­try’s leg­is­la­ture.
