The oil mogul and former owner of Forte Oil, Femi Otedola who announced recently that he has sold 75% of Forte stake to local oil firm, Prudent Energy to move into Nigeria power sector by acquiring Geregu Power Plc, has redeemed his pledge of $25,000 (about ₦9,046,996) to the Super Eagles of Nigeria for goals scored in the just concluded Orange: Africa Cup of Nations.
The billionaire philanthropist who made a promise with Aliko Dangote to doll out the lump sum of $75,000 to the Super Eagles for every goal scored in the Africa championship, has fulfilled his promise by the donation.
He made the donation while receiving a delegation of Super Eagles in his office.
He posted a picture on him with them on his Instagram handle and with the caption: ‘Integrity is keeping your word. I redeemed my pledge of $25000 per goal to representatives of the Super Eagles (L-R) Chidi Ngoka (Equipment Manager), Enebi Achor (Team Manager) and Defender Kenneth Omeruo today in my office’.
The proud father of the famous musician DJ Cuppy have never been left out in the acts of giving back to the society. As he is always seen carrying out one project or the other for the masses. He is also a close friend of Aliko Dangote as the two of them have been caught on camera vacationing in Monaco, Spain in the past months.
