Otedola’s philanthropic acts: This act of kindness is a testament that the business magnate is not relenting. In the past, he had paid medical bills for veteran actors – Victor Olaotan who was involved in a car accident and Sadiq Daba who was diagnosed with prostate cancer.  Otedola also paid the medical bills of former Eagle’s captain and coach, Christian Chukwu who was also diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Meanwhile, the billionaire recently visited Aliko Dangote’s refinery which he described as a wonderland. He went to witness the arrival of the Heat Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG) which provides the thermodynamic link between the gas turbines and steam turbines in a combined-cycle power plant.
