• How oil magnate and socialite had everyone eating from his palms

Genius is of no country. But it is surely of a descent of men who reach such an acute unlimited excellence in their prime, that every sterling exploit afterward, savours of unprecedented brilliance. Few men are wrought of such transcendent capacity for genius as Gabriel Ogbechie.

The Rainoil boss pulsates exceptional intellect and that singular forthrightness that imbues philosophy with logic and sound theory. Like a lightning shaft from Eden, Ogbechie dazzled a large audience and commanded applause at YES International Magazine’s 5th Anniversary Lecture and Cocktail on Monday, June 20.

The event which held at the Nigeria Institute of International Affairs (NIIA), Kofo Abayomi Street, Victoria Island, Lagos, offered a great platform for the oil magnate to espouse his gift of gumption and unparalleled intellect in an electrifying speech. By the time he was done with his presentation, Ogbechie had everyone eating from his palms.

The guests reeled in admiration of his sterling candour and brilliant takes on crucial issues of national discourse. There is no gainsaying Ogbechie delivered his speech with unusual grace and measured élan thus eliciting shrieks of delight and affirmative nods from the audience.

The Rainoil boss made new friends and won new disciples by his superb presentation at the event.

A graduate of the University of Benin, Benin, Edo State, Ogbechie earned a Second Class Honours (Upper Division) degree in Production Engineering from the prestigious institution in 1987. Following his compulsory one year National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) stint as a lecturer with the Kano State Polytechnic, he worked with Sharada Edible Oil Company Limited Kano as a factory Engineer from 1989 to 1991. His quest for knowledge and professionalism took him to PricewaterhouseCoopers, a leading firm of Chartered Accountants and Management Consultants where he worked from 1991 to 1992. He joined Ascon Oil in 1992, where he was responsible for Sales and Operations.

In 1997, he founded Rainoil Limited, which he has guided from very modest beginnings to a company with operations across the downstream value chain. Rainoil currently possesses 29 service station spread across the country, a 50 million litre capacity multi-product storage depot in Oghara, Delta State, with a jetty, a fleet of 75 tank trucks for product distribution and two ships.
