President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated Chief Oludolapo Ibukun Akinkugbe, a renowned pharmacist and consummate businessman, who turns 90 on December 5, 2018.

The President joined Akinkugbe’s family, friends, professional and business associates to celebrate the iconic pharmacist who took his profession from moderate level of providing drugs to unhealthy people to meeting the multiple needs of society through business ventures, especially in areas of food and education.

He also congratulated the nonagenarian for his numerous achievements and recognitions across the world, serving on both national and international boards, purely borne out of his flexibility in making wise choices to invest in areas that directly impact the lives of Nigerians, especially his role as founding chairman of West African Milk Company (WAMCO).

The President said Akinkugbe’s investment of his time, resources and entrepreneurial talent in developing people and institutions in various parts of the country, and the world, would always be appreciated.

He prayed for good health, strength and longer life for the businessman.
