Oando Group Chief Executive, Adewale Tinubu’s Legendary Philanthropic Acts




In the past months, the Nigerian society has  witnessed the emergence of seasonal philanthropists and donors, following the outbreak of the deadly corona virus pandemic, otherwise known as COVID-19.

This group of overnight donors, who seem to be struggling hard to push to the background the well known philanthropists in our society, not only mouth their acts of benevolence, they also literally hawk them, to the chagrin of the morally conscious ones.

These days, many shamelessly make a spectacle of every little act of fellow-feeling they do, thereby subjecting the beneficiaries to avoidable public ridicule.

Anyone would think they are in some competition of sorts, trying to outshine one another.

But as disheartening as the trend is, a few privileged individual members of the society can be said to be toeing a different path in relation to their humane dispositions.

Interestingly, one of such is Jubril Adewale Tinubu, Group Chief Executive, Oando Group, who marvel with his legendary philanthropic acts.

But unlike those who are so showy about their acts of kindness to the needy, he empathizes with them and lifts them financially so quietly.

A close source to the oil magnate revealed that, since the commencement of this year’s Ramadan fast, he had expended millions of Naira on foodstuff and cash that he gave indigent Muslim faithful around him.

Not only that we also gathered that many have benefited from his kind gestures since the outbreak of COVID-19 as he has fed many families and doles out cash quietly without making noise out of it.

Tinubu  is one personality whose love for fellow human beings beggars description, this is because he gives freely without creating unnecessary attention about it, while he would rather do this without making a song and a dance of it.

While many of his mates  roll out drum and publicise little gestures, the billionaire would rather adhere to the saying ‘When you help the needy, leave your camera behind at home’

“ It is like a vow he has made to God. He does it annually during Ramadan. This is just one of his several philanthropic deeds, as well as interventions, to the help the course of humanity,” the source added.

By virtue of his rare accomplishments, Jubril Adewale Tinubu, GCE, Oando  Group , is one of the few businessmen who have written their names in gold.

The string of industry awards that litter his ornate office is evident of his success story in the sector. So far, it can be said that Providence has been fair to him, especially when you consider his intimidating resume, international connection and riches.

He has scored many firsts in the pasts and he still continues in that  trends in fact he was born a leader.  Naturally, he has been placed far above his contemporaries and competitors.

Undoubtedly, today the Lagos State born oil mogul  is one of the few Nigeria’s businessmen that can rub shoulders with other top businessmen around the globe as he commands respect in the world business sector. He has succeeded in engraving his name in the hearts of the generality of his compatriots.
