Nobody forget the first time they meet Abdulsamad Rabiu, the chairman of BUA who was recently appointed the chairman of Bank of industry. Everybody wishes for an encore. Often it’s not the first meeting that resonates but the first time he inspired them to look inwards and tap into their innate individuality and purposeful clarity cum cheerfulness continuum that is the hallmark of the BUA brand.
Rabiu who made the Forbes World’s Billionaires list last year, is the founder of BUA Group, a Nigerian conglomerate with interests in sugar refining, cement production, real estate, steel, port concession, manufacturing, oil and gas, and shipping. There is a lot about Rabiu that really steals under your skin at your first encounter with him: he is self-assured and yet not given to flightiness, unlike several other business moguls.
Widely acknowledged as a man of honour, Rabiu, no doubt, exudes an uncanny mélange of zeal and fervor that becomes his charm. Intellectually, he flaunts a primitive approach that only a few of his contemporaries can rival. Hard work has designed him a wide- grim and leads him across the lane of fame to the realization of his dreams.
Being successful in business is the most fascinating kind of art. And you can see in Abdulsamad’s quiet, forceful enterprise.
Society People sighted him at an event penultimate weekend, and as we approach him to share compliment, he was indeed a great man as he exhumed the quality of a humble humane and wore a welcome smile on his face sharing compliment like we have known for years.
