Like it has been for the last forty years, on the 12th of April 2020 will yet again mark a mile stone in the life Lagos big boy and one of Nigeria’s Oil and Gas big players, CEO G&G Oil And Gas as he turns 40.
The grass to grace life story of Alhaji Akeem Adelaja is that of a young man who grew up knowing about the struggles of life. As a Mushin born and bred, young Akeem toiled very hard and sometimes in the dreaded hustling and jostling which is synonymous with Mushin in particular and Lagos State in general. In the midst of these tough challenges and seemingly insurmountable rocks of Gibraltar, the hard working Akeem kept on doing his legal duties as a Petrol attendant at a gas station in his Mushin, Lagos domain.
Gradually, young Akeem started learning the rudiments of business, most especially in the oil and gas sector and as time went on, he was able to develop solid interest in the business and worked assiduously towards achieving his set goals and objectives.
After going through the necessary educational attainment needed to forge ahead in his life’s pursuits, Akeem Adelaja ventured into the lucrative but challenging and hotly contesting oil and gas industry and pronto, the Almighty God was with him and he gradually built for himself, an inspirational image in that sector. Today, Alhaji Akeem Adelaja, a devout Muslim who never joked with all the rules and regulations guiding the Islamic religion is a vast investor in the Nigerian oil and gas industry.
