President Muhammadu Buhari has felicitated with distinguished businesswoman, banker, economist and accountant, Otunba Ayora (Dr.) Bola Kuforiji Olubi, OON, who recently clocked 80.


The President recalled the former minister’s decades of distinguished career in the private and public sectors of national life, and noted that Otunba Kuforiji Olubi’s contributions will remain inspiring to the younger generation.

“It is not surprising that she is a proud and well-deserved recipient of the National Honour, fellowships, awards and honorary degrees from within and outside the country,” President said of the first female chairman of one of the first generation banks in Nigeria.

He particularly expressed delight that Otunba Kuforiji Olubi has remained a pace-setter and leader in banking, manufacturing and entrepreneurship not only in Nigeria but also in Sub-Saharan Africa.

President Buhari, while noting that God has been kind to Otunba Kuforiji Olubi, prayed for continued health and longer life for the octogenarian, author and philanthropist to “enable the nation and humanity benefit from her wisdom and wealth of experience.”
