For Senator Lanre Tejuoso, the year ended on a high note, despite the turn of things at the political front as he was among the eight Nigerians honoured by the Nigerian Achievers Awards Institute, the licensors of the Nigerian-British Awards, an initiative headed by Prince Afolabi Andu.
Andu is a thought leader and business strategist, noted for his various endeavours in promoting Nigerian businesses and Nigerians across the world, with the Best of Nigeria Expo as his flagship.
It was a colourful and celebrative night at the Hilton Paddington, London, with the hall filled with high flying Nigerians of different statuses in flowering attires, to celebrate the awardees, who were honoured for their immense contributions in various fields.
Olanrewaju Adeyemi Tejuoso, Chairman of the 8th Senate Committee on Health, alongside Mrs. Juliet Benson, a Nigerian – born lawyer of many years standing, and principal partner with JB Solicitors (UK), were among those bestowed with Merit Awards while Dr. Joe Okoli, founder of the Abuja Graduate School was honoured with Life Achiever Award for 2019.
Andu, who is also the President of the Nigerian-British Business Forum, commended the eight recipients for their various contributions to both the corporate world and humanity while urging them to continue to strive for greater successes in all their endeavours.
In his concluding remarks, Andu used the occasion to unveil the Nigerian Achievers Compendium 2020, a publication proposed to project Nigerians embarking on great feats in the Diaspora.
Olanrewaju Adeyemi Tejuoso expressed gratitude to the award organisers and Nigerians for finding him worthy of the honour as he pledged to continue to serve his people and Nigeria with all the resources available to him and in different platforms and positions that he finds himself.
