Born in West Africa in 1950, his career spans over four decades of fruitful endeavour. As a young graduate, and himself an entrepreneur at heart, he commenced his own trading operations in the early 70s. Some years later, breaking away from the tradition of dealing in general merchandise, he laid the foundations of his first pharmaceutical manufacturing unit. The seed of what was to become the Dana Group of Companies was sown and over the years he began diversifying into new fields, specialising in the MNC dominated field of industrial chemicals. Further expansions into new industries continued alongside a growing portfolio of trading operations, popularising the Dana brand as a name synonymous with quality and affordability, and also representing world-class brands in Nigeria and the Sub-Saharan region. His business enterprise and acumen have resulted into a well diversified and financially strong Group of Companies recognised as a foremost business house in Nigeria with a firm industrial base
