Accolades For Alex-Duduyemi At Book Launch
The book was written by a communication and development consultant, Oluneye Oluwole, who is also the author of Serve With Heart and Dreams of a Patriot.
At the event held at the Metropolitan Club, Victoria Island, dignitaries from different fields poured encomiums on the celebrator and the writer too.
In the publication, Oluwole identifies resilience as the secret of Chief Alex-Duduyemi’s success. He seeks to bring to the fore his awe-inspiring doggedness, sense of purpose and never-say-die spirit, all of which played significant roles in his rise as a young lad from Ile-Ife.
“Each page of the book is a journey into a world of adventures and a launch into a time-machine that is coded with historical events. The book is a representation of hope that strongly advocates a great comeback after every setback; and a blueprint for turning life’s trials and temptations into opportunities,” the publishers say.
The theme of the keynote address, which was delivered by Mr. Tunde Lemo, a former deputy governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, centred on ‘Managing a Successful Business in a Challenging Environment: Nigeria Case Study.’
The book reviewer, Prof. Oye Ibidapo-Obe, a former Vice Chancellor, University of Lagos, described the book as excellently edited, with a fascinating pull that cannot be ignored once the pages are turned.
Also, the Chairman of the event, Chief Ernest Shonekan, attributed Alex-Duduyemi’s attainment of 80 years to the grace and benevolence of God. The chief presenter, Dr. Oba Otudeko (CFR), who is the Chairman, Honeywell Group, anchored the presentation of the book, while the Awujale of Ijebuland, (Oba) Sikiru Adetona, unveiled Quintessential Colossus.
Also at the programme was the celebrator’s wife, Chief Shola Alex-Duduyemi.
