The feeling was that of nostalgia when the President and Chairman of Governing Council of Alhaji Ahmed Rafiu Mohammed led other council members of IoD Nigeria to finally hand over the premises at 53 Glover Road, Ikoyi.
The handing over, which was officially done on Thursday 6th September 2018, with the Managing Directors of Transcorp Corporation Nigeria Plc, Mr. Adim Jibunoh and Transcorp Hotels Pls, Mr. Valentine Ozigbo, present, ended the asset swapping process between the two organisations, which saw Transcorp Hotels also cede the property at Temple Road, Ikoyi to IoD Nigeria last week.
Council members of IoD Nigeria also present to witness the final handing over were Past President Chief (Mrs.) Eniola Fadayomi, DF.IoD, First Vice President Chief Chris Okunowo, F.IoD, Honorary Legal Adviser Alhaji Tijjani Borodo, F.IoD and the Director General/CEO, Mr. Dele Alimi, M.IoD.
In his remarks at the short ceremony, Alhaji Mohammed said the Institute has kept to its watchword of Integrity and Enterprise by keeping to the date promised for the handing over of the property to Transcorp Hotels Plc. He thanked all the Council members for their support and said he was looking forward to having an IoD Nigeria Hall in the Transcorp Hotel, when it is finally built on the land.
In his own remarks, The Managing Director/CEO of Transcorp Hotels Plc, Mr. Ozigbo thanked the council members of IoD Nigeria for seeing through the deal and observed that the handing over must have invoked a feeling of nostalgia.
Mr Ozigbo, to the delight of all, took time out to share a video on what the property to be sited on the land would look like, when completed.
