It was an evening of elegance and style on January 30, 2020 at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel in Abuja, when Nexia Agbo Abel & Co. marked the retirement of its chairman, David Olaleye FCA FCTI. For over a decade, he had played the role of leader, mentor, coach and father to the board of partners and its staff spread across its offices in Abuja, Lagos, and Kaduna.
All through the evening, goodwill messages and testimonies poured in from clients, colleagues, family, and friends about his exceptional professional career and leadership qualities.
He joined Nexia Agbo Abel & Co., as a new firm and was able to lead it to enviable heights. The firm has been able to position itself as a multi-skill and multi-discipline professional advisory firm, committed to technical and professional excellence in the provision of services.
The diversity and calibre of guests that came in from across industries and around the country was a testament to the high-quality professional life that David Olaleye led. Amidst all the well wishes, gifts, and tributes, guests were also thoroughly entertained with a poetry performance and a musical performance. The highlight of the evening was however, an emotional video biography of his life.
David Olaleye was a pillar at Nexia Agbo Abel & Co. and has left big shoes to fill. He is cherished by all and will be greatly missed.
