To many, June 26 of every year is like any ordinary day in their lives. It has no significant meaning to them. They neither look forward to its coming nor mark the day with any fanfare.

But this is not so for Nigerian businessman and oil mogul,   Wale Tinubu,   CEO, Oando Oil . For him, the day is always worth celebrating, as it signifies the beginning of his earthly sojourn.

Mercifully,   this year, Tinubu, also a lawyer, attains the golden age. For a man of his stature,   it won’t be so surprising   if he chooses to present his memoirs on the occasion. Certainly,   if Tinubu decides to put the story of his life in black and white for public consumption,   it will make an interesting read. His memoirs also   will certainly be an inspiration to aspiring businessmen and generality of people alike.

If you are in doubt,   the story of his steady rise in the sector as one of the biggest players is proof that he was born under the proverbial lucky star.

But close sources   hinted   that he is not in a hurry to release his memoirs for public consumption because he believes that he is still an evolving phenomenon.
