The Chairman/CEO of Gastab Global Haulage and Deputy Chairman of Lagos Zonal Council of Petroleum Tanker Drivers (PTD) Branch of Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG), Comrade (Alhaji) Omogbolahan Saheed Adigun has felicitated with the National Chairman of PTD, Comrade (Otunba) Salimon Akanni Oladiti on the occasion of his birthday anniversary.
Otunba Oladiti usually observes October 10 of every calendar year to celebrate his birthday, but not without expressing profound gratitude to God for divine protection and providence through thanksgiving and praise as a devoted Christian. In a message to the PTD Chair on Thursday which was personally signed by Comrade Omogbolahan Adigun, he described Oladiti as a man of destiny and bridge builder. He added that Oladiti's arrival as the leader of PTD at this time was not fortuitous but a divinely ordained step to turn around the fortunes of the tanker drivers.
He said: ''I, Omogbolahan Saheed Adigun, heartily felicitate with my amiable leader and mentor, Otunba Salimon Akanni Oladiti on the occasion of his birthday anniversary which took place on October 10. 2019. This is a remarkable and auspicious day to celebrate success, resilience, excellence, hard work, generosity, kindness, humility, optimism, patriotism, and many more as typified by this thoroughbred Ibadan illustrious entrepreneur.
He is a man of destiny and bridge builder and he is indeed a success story in every ramification. I am therefore pleased to join friends, fellow Comrades, business partners, family members as well as well wishers to celebrate one of Nigeria’s greatest business moguls and philanthropists. Otunba, who is currently the National Chairman of Petroleum Tanker Drivers (PTD) Branch of Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) and Chairman of SAO group of companies is no doubt a fine, well-bred, well-spoken gentleman, a consummate leader and an astute trade unionist and strategist who has brought discipline, decency, unity, transparency, and accountability to PTD branch of NUPENG, and has consistently presented himself as a quintessential leader with commitment and patriotism. I and my entire team at Gastab Global Haulage are deeply elated to celebrate this unique business crusader whose success has been resting on uncommon allegiance, perseverance, doggedness, sacrifice, sagacity, maturity, sincerity and foresightedness. Otunba's cerebral disposition, genuine consultation and remarkable progressive virtues have successfully converted the potentials of PTD into numerous enviable realities.
Today, by the grace of God, PTD has its own world class hotel in Abuja and the branch has triumphed in building capacity in various business ventures. Otunba's excellent style of leadership has impressively changed the negative perceptions people have about our members and this has fully restored our lost dignity and goodwill. On this birthday of a reliable and an amazing Special Adviser to the President of NUPENG, Comrade (Prince) Williams Akporeha on Informal Sector, it is a unique opportunity to salute his selfless and unwavering commitment to humanity and astonishing accomplishments in life. I pray he would continue to usher in more grace to his success as he continues to further manifest his destined greatness. I have no iota of doubt his mega vision, octopus mission and unassailable journey of purposeful and selfless service to humanity would continue to magnify. May God bless him more, bless his family and business and I wish him long life. Happy birthday to you sir.'' the message concluded.
