During his acceptance speech, he shared a brief narration of what happened between him and a member of his staff when he donated a sum of N5 billion to charity after selling Forte Oil.
According to Otedola, his CFO had to ask him a second time to be sure if he really meant what he said about giving out the huge sum of money.
“When I sold one of my businesses, my majority shareholding in Forte oil, I woke up one day and I said to myself I am 57 years old and for me, the age for the departure lounge from this world is 85 so I now said I have only 28 years left.
“Out of the 28 years, of course, I sleep 10 hours a day, so I said most likely if God permits me like our father Chief Adebanjo, I would have 12 years awake. I said Okay and then called my CFO, she said Sir, you have sold the business, one of the arms of the business, in 5 months you have N5 billion interest. I said okay, we will give it to charity”
