    Olawale Rotimi Opeyemi, are truly and inspiration to so many . And as is always the case with men of your caliber , (people like you with vision , purpose , mental agility and sustained focus to plan , execute and maintain a great project, ) , the positive ripple effects of your achievements is incredible. I place you in the same class as Bill Gates and Warren Buffett. My lifelong heroes . Men of INTEGRITY , uncorrupted by their wealth. As I look around and see the plethora of mental midgets that abound in Nigeria as “ leaders of industry “ and political leaders included , it’s easy , so very easy to become despondent and overwhelmed with a sense of hopelessness. These are the times I hold the three of you up as examples to my three children. Buffet, Gates , Opeyemi . Thank God men of this type of metal still exist publicly.
