The grass to grace story of Alhaji Adelaja who turns 40 next week 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.
In the midst of tough challenges and seemingly insurmountable rocks of Gibraltar, the hardworking 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, he 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 jokes about the rules and regulations guiding the Islamic religion is a vast investor in the Nigerian oil and gas industry.
