President Buhari notes, with appreciation, choices made by the astute administrator to favour Nigeria on investments, encouragement of local content, which led to huge expansions in agriculture, and creation of employment for a large number of people as Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of Nestle Nigeria Plc; Chairman, GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Nigeria; Chairman Lafarge Plc; Chairman, International Chamber of Commerce Nigeria and President Society for Corporate Governance, Nigeria.
As Chief Osunkeye turns 80, the President believes his contributions to development of education in Nigeria, and efforts to improve the pharmaceutical and medical institutions in the country will continue to stand out, particularly his focus on giving opportunities to the poor and underprivileged.
President Buhari prays that the almighty God will continue to bless the former Chairman of Nestle with longer life and good health to keep serving the nation.
