She said: “In the course of the recession, the capacity of virtually every Nigerian business was tested to its breaking point. In addition to the negative growth which was an attendant feature of the contraction in the economy, foreign exchange encumbrances saw many businesses face a Herculean battle to meet up with their numerous obligations. Many businesses went belly up; others fell by the wayside. Today, we celebrate you, ladies and gentlemen, for standing tall and surmounting the storm.
“For the resilience, the tenacity, the drive, the unwavering determination and the sheer but uncommon ability to navigate what was undoubtedly the most difficult period in Nigeria’s recent business history, we salute you!”
