AS part of activities to commemorate Africa Day 2012, in the US, the Africa Society of the National Summit on Africa in collaboration with the Congressional African Staffers Association (CASA), recently honoured the Nigerian Businessman and philanthropist, Lucky Babatunde Omoluwa for his work in advancing business relations with the USA and in philanthropy.
The honouring hosts were US Senators Patrick Leahy and Mark Begich and US Reps. Chris Smith, Bobby L. Rush, James Clyburn, Sheila Steve Cohen, Andre Carson and Karen Bass. Omoluwa has interests in several areas of business but I have known his work over the years in broadcasting procurement and installation. For years, these were fields that scammers dominated and skimmed off huge sums of money, with often, shoddy performance, in return.
Omoluwa’s company has become a leader in the broadcast business because of an admirable commitment to delivery and installation of very high quality equipment.
It was his attitude which has largely revolutionised the business in Nigeria; and the fact that his company is the exclusive representative of the Broadcast Communication Division of Harris Corporation, the largest manufacturers of radio and television transmitters in the world, speaks volumes for his success in the field.
But I think his greatest attributes include an uncommon modesty despite his business success as well as mentoring of others to find success in different areas of life.
Lucky Omoluwa is the quintessential Nigerian who speaks many Nigerian languages, a Southerner who found tremendous success in Northern Nigeria. The only passion he has that I don’t share is his love for golf! Congratulations Sir Babatunde Lucky Omoluwa.
