By Oladapo Sofowora



 

Forbes-listed billionaire in Africa, Folorunsho Alakija, means so many things to different people. To many, she is a billionaire and an oil magnate, who also serves as the Vice-Chairman of Famfa Oil Limited.



To others, she is a global citizen, with a cosmopolitan outlook, and to some, she is a seasoned minister and soul winner in God’s kingdom.

No doubt, she fits perfectly into these descriptions. But beyond all these descriptions of Alakija’s personality, the beautiful woman is a philanthropist par excellence. She gives generously without blinking an eyelid.

As part of her quest to keep promoting charitable cause; she donated a hospital complex to the Osun State University on the institution’s 8th convocation ceremony in 2019. The teaching University hospital reportedly costs a whopping sum of N500m.

In line with her philanthropic commitment to academic excellence, the oil baroness, on Monday, March 6, declared open the 2020 FAMFA Oil Literacy Day themed: “Readers are Leaders”. The event was held at the City Hall, on Catholic Mission Street, Lagos Island.
