*You’re Making Our Country Proud, Gov. Abiodun Tells Jimoh Ibrahim*
Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun has told Dr. Jimoh Ibrahim CFR that he’s making Nigeria proud as he was awarded the first-ever Doctor of Business Degree by the University of Cambridge, United Kingdom.
The governor also described the achievement of the billionaire business mogul, who also the All Progressives Congress’ senatorial candidate for Ondo South in the forthcoming general elections, as outstanding and inspiring.
This was contained in a congratulatory letter personally signed by the governor and addressed to Ibrahim as he was on Saturday awarded Doctor of Business degree by the Cambridge University, the first-ever since it was established in 1209.
He said the award further revealed Ibrahim as a sterner stuff than perceived by people.
The letter reads in parts: “On behalf of my family, the Government and the good people of Ogun State, I congratulate you on your conferment with the first-ever Doctor of Business Degree by the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom on Saturday, 23rd of July, 2022.
“This well-deserved recognition did not come as a surprise. Indeed, it is yet another feather to a cap already decorated with many feathers that are a reflection of your many achievements that are as outstanding as they are inspiring.
“This award further reaffirms my conviction that you are sterner stuff than most mortals can discern. It also validates the self-evident truth of your humility, humanism, philanthropy and focus which is almost unequalled among your peers. No wonder our grateful Nation Nigeria, accorded you with the enviable National award as Commander of the Order of the Federal Republic (CFR).
“The conferment is both recognition of your contribution as it is and yet a challenge to do more for the development and service to humanity in general.”
Governor Abiodun, therefore, tasked Ibrahim to see the achievement as a call to serve humanity more than ever.
He said: “I urge you therefore to regard this rare honour as a task for you to be more diligent and committed to the betterment of mankind as you continue to remain a source of inspiration to the younger generation.
“Once again, please accept my hearty congratulations and the assurances of my highest regards.”
