The philosophy that change is an inevitable occurrence in anything aptly applies to what the situation around the man, Prince Dapo Abiodun, who just occupied Oke-Mosan government house in Ogun State as the number one indigene of the state. Until his involvement in the governorship race became more pronounced and intense, Dapo would readily come to mind as a business man who specializes in oil deals.
As a business man, only cynics would doubt his ability to turn things around for good as the facts is there staring anyone in the face. However, Dapo may have had his glittering business profile bruised slightly as one of his business concerns seems to be proving the governor cannot always get it right as far as business is concerned. Many will still remember how the boss of Heyden Oil staged mother of all gigs some two years ago when he tuned 57 years. It was practically a shutdown celebrating the anniversary as all trappings of affluence and riches were deployed in no small measure to make a lingering statement. The party which had Tee A as the compeer had governors, former governors and captains of industry in attendance.
Choice champagne, exotic cognac and fine wine flowed freely as well canapes and good food. There was no dull moment as the DJ jammed all through. Venue of event at Ikoyi was so packed that guests flowed to the swimming pool area.
It was actually a two celebration packed in one event. Aside of the birthday celebration, Prince Dapo also declared open a new lounge meant for high society, 12 Temple.
With the founder’s class and influence, especially the monumental way it was commissioned, many predicted great times ahead for the hospitality business, but contrary to that, the situation has been the opposite as loud quietness that replaced supposed beehive of activities have made some to wonder if Dapo had not made a wrong move by setting up the lounge that cost a fortune. Meanwhile, while some are of the view that it’s only a matter of time the lounge will seize to exist, others feel this is the time the facility will thrive as the influence of the proprietor as a governor might have a positive effect in the whole calculation.
