Yes,  Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has come to exemplify a special conception of a forthright, no sophistry-permitting political leader. Restrained, yet, robust in his public and private statements, he says it as it is without pandering to any parochial or puritanical interest.

Thus, when the Professor of Law declared yesterday, Tuesday, that he was not only in awe of the $1billion dollar ultra modern BUA Cement Plant at Okpella, Edo State, the new baby of Forbes-certified billionaire businessman, Alhaji Abdulsamad Rabiu, he said he bows to the BUA chairman’s genius and altruistic patriotism.

At the inauguration ceremony of the three million metric tonnes per annum capacity plant, the Vice President – accompanied by the Ministers of Agriculture and Rural Development, Chief Audu Ogbeh; and Industry, Trade and Investment, Dr. Okechukwu Enelamah; the Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi; and governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki and former governor Adams Oshiomole – said, “The construction of this plant is of course a big boost to the Nigerian economy. It will provide thousands of direct and indirect jobs both for skilled and unskilled workers from the commencement of the construction of the plant to the smooth running of the operations process.”

According to the VP, if the level of production is obtained, it would boost Nigeria’s self-sufficiency in cement and her export capacity. “I am happy to note that for the construction of power production facility for this plant, the BUA group has used the most modern and efficient gas turbine which combines low and economically value cost with a very high degree of reliability.”

Earlier, there was the symbolic groundbreaking ceremony for the second line of three million metric tonnes which will be completed next year, making a total of six million metric tonnes for the BUA Cement Plant.  He specially commended Samad for the vision while promising that the federal government would always be on the sideline, cheering enthusiastically and ready to offer every form of support the company desires.

What the VP did not know is that such massive endeavours are not alien to Abdulsamad, a citizen of humanity and patriot whose commitment to national and economic stability is beyond doubt. Frequently likened to a champ and sometimes, a business genius, Samad naturally depicts the image of a modern day titan of industry. Having recorded a series of remarkable firsts in the highly competitive world of local and international commerce, there are more worlds for him to conquer. And Nigeria and Africa are the better for it.

Indeed, he has created a legendary brand in BUA, which is a blessing. Rather than submit to the rigours and pressures of commerce, he towers in excellence thus creating a powerhouse that Nigeria nay Africa is proud of.
