If there was doubt about the benefits of hard work, faithfulness, honesty and consistency, such was removed recently when President Mohammadu Buhari visited the revered Benin Monarch, Oba Ewuare II in his palace. At hand to receive Mr. President was leading opinion leaders and chiefs, including Nigeria’s ingenious businessman, Capt Hosa Wells Okunbor.

From the retinue of chiefs and nobles, President Buhari singled out Capt Okunbor for praise, because of his groundbreaking and novel achievements at Wells Hosa Greenhouse Farm in Edo State. While commending him for his faith in Nigeria and his exploit in Agro-Allied industry, the President mentioned that he was aware of the risk and huge sacrifices made by the retired Commercial Airliner Pilot, including the sale of his private jet to establish the biggest and most successful farm, which has now become a benchmark in Greenhouse farming in Nigeria.

The Benin Monarch, who has intensified efforts to attract social and economic development to his kingdom since becoming the 42nd Oba, was understandably proud of his subject who has become synonymous with successful business stories.

Like a bulldozer, Capt Okunbor has never given up, irrespective of the challenges. Perhaps this doggedness is responsible for his attraction to startup initiatives and rare endeavours – including areas that involve hi-tech engineering. With determination and with his eyes on record breaking, he has made successes of all his enterprise which covers, land, sea and air.
