• When the aviation magnate honoured with doctorate

There is no disputing the pluck and enviable prescience of Dr. Sam Iwajoku, the billionaire businessman behind ExecuJet and The Legend. Like the fabled alchemist, who transforms base metals into gold blocks, Sam enchants business rivals and peer with towering acumen and finesse. Yes, through dexterous deployment of tact, Sam understands the rudiments of the business landscape enough to beat the odds and he has done just that.

He also understands that to be a man of honour and substance requires indeterminate exploits at dawn through dusk in honest industry. Hence he exerted himself creditably through quiet seasons and storms, in good times and bad times. However, in honour of his astounding capacity to rewrite the African aviation business narrative in glowing terms, Adeleke University conferred on him Doctor of Science in Business Development & Administration, last Sunday in Ede, Osun State.

Expectedly, joy throbs in his heart and pounds through his soul, like the euphoria that overwhelms a Formula One champion at the point when he revs past the victory line. But Sam is no racecar driver, the billionaire magnate and chairman of Quits Aviation Services Nigeria Ltd. is simply beset by bliss and sweet delight because he has yet another remarkable feather in his cap. Sam’s joy is contagious and profound; it stems from the attainment of his latest honour.

However, his latest business venture, the much-talked about hotel, called Legend…Curio by Hilton, rave of the moment. The edifice which is situated around the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, is going to be the first of its kind when it throws its doors open for business at the prestigious ExecuJet, the private jet lounge of Lagos International Airport, Lagos.

The Legend is beautiful with a great view, good food and excellent facilities for connoisseurs of luxury and elegance. The hotel indeed lives up to its legendary name; moving about its picturesque expanse, you just might get lost in its dazzle of decor and tasteful ornamentation. An enticing warmth extends from its lovely exterior, luring you into its beautiful interior. He’s an authority in the aviation sector and a very close friend of Africa’s richest billionaire, Aliko Dangote.
