Apostle Folorunso Alakija has been recognized as a lady whose sterling characteristics and business abilities should be imitated by the younger generation by youths under the sponsorship of Africa’s Young Entrepreneurs (AYE).
Hundreds of AYE members flocked to the Entrepreneurship Village in Akure, Ondo State, to celebrate Alakija’s 70th birthday, saying her contributions to humanity’s progress is extremely praiseworthy.
Summy Smart Francis, their leader, thanked God for allowing Alakija to celebrate her 70th birthday in the Akure entrepreneurial community.
Francis, who is also Governor Rotimi Akeredolu’s Special Adviser on Entrepreneurship Development, hailed Alakija as a role model, servant leader, and God loving.
He described Alakija as a wonderful businesswoman and humanitarian who should be emulated, noting that she has contributed to mankind and God’s mission.
Alakija, according to the young leader, is a woman of wisdom not just in business, economics, and fashion, but also in religion and love for God and mankind.
“We need people like her in positions of leadership so that she may utilize her vast expertise to help people grow quickly.
“We chose to honor our Grand Matron as a businesswoman who has made significant contributions to human development.”
Remember that Alakija just turned 70 and had a series of activities planned, including the launch of five books and a seven-hour praise and worship service to thank God for the opportunity to celebrate her birthday.
