The Punch - - TODAY -

THE Edo State Gov­er­nor, Mr God­win Obaseki, has con­grat­u­lated the Chair­man of Ele­ganza Group, Chief Razak Okoya, on his 80th birth­day cel­e­bra­tion.

In a state­ment on Sun­day, the gov­er­nor hailed Okoya’s tenac­ity and sense of in­dus­try.

He noted that his ex­ploits as an in­dus­tri­al­ist re­mained a tes­ta­ment to the in­de­fati­ga­ble spirit of hard work and re­silience com­mon with Nige­ri­ans.

Obaseki said, “I send hearty fe­lic­i­ta­tions as you mark your 80th birth­day. It is quite heart­warm­ing that you have made an in­deli­ble mark in the sands of time and touched the life of many who crossed your path.

“As an in­dus­tri­al­ist, we are proud of all that you have achieved and the many more in­no­va­tive ideas you are bring­ing to change Nige­ria’s in­dus­trial land­scape.

“Man­ag­ing large con­glom­er­ates has never been an easy task, but Chief Okoya has re­de­fined the prac­tice with his ex­pert han­dling of a busi­ness con­cern that spans cloth­ing, house­hold ap­pli­ances, sta­tioner­ies, cos­met­ics and many oth­ers.

“It is only with a rare mix of ded­i­ca­tion and hard work that you have been able to groom and man­age a con­glom­er­ate like Ele­ganza Group, which em­ploys thou­sands of Nige­ri­ans di­rectly and in­di­rectly.”
