Who Will Save Marine Platforms Boss, Taofik Adegbite?

…Why his wife, Tosin, is not ready to slow her roll


Mirth and misery may have no more succinct interpretation than happenings between Taofik Adegbite, the dandy CEO of Marine Platforms, and his svelte wife, Tosin. Just as the eternal words of Charles Dickens that ‘it was the best of times, it was the worst of times… it was the season of light, it was the season of darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair,’ also have some eerie bearing to their lives at the moment.

While Taofik is battling tooth and nail to extricate himself from the arms of the law having been in and out of the police station over allegations of threat to life leveled against him by a business partner, Tosin, a fitness junkie, continues to live her la Vida Loca lifestyle with scant cares in the world. Instagram is her orbit and playground and she generously shares her highflying private life with her fawning, over 90, 000 followers.

Tosin is as fit, fun-loving, and fashionable as they come. She spends as much time in the gym as she does in different cities of the world shopping for expensive fashion items and dining in exotic restaurants with wild abandon. She radiates and wears her carefree attitude and contentment like a badge of honour. It is hard to run into her or see her different posts and believe that behind her smile-wide grin is the anguish of a partner that sleep and peace have eluded for the time being.

A Computer Science graduate of the University of Ibadan, Taofik joined Marine Platforms in 2001 as the Director of Strategy and Business Development. He rose to become the CEO and a key player in the Nigerian Oil & Gas and Maritime Sectors. Adegbite achieved global acclaim when Marine Platforms delivered and became the proud owner of the African vision and African inspiration- the two subsea function-specific and Remotely Operated Vessels (ROV) costing $100 million and the first of its kind to be owned by a Nigerian company which also culminated in the first shipbuilding contract between a Nigerian company and a Norwegian shipyard.

His position and attainments, understandably, come with a lot of pressure and envy from all sides of the divide. Before his travail with the police began, the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, had placed a lien on his accounts over what was alleged to be shady deals. The issue so far has been resolved.

He now has to prove before the law that he did not threaten the life and safety of his business partner.
