In Adibo’s words, “ I clearly visualize the leadership challenges this country has over the years in different sectors and levels, and that is one key factor that motivated me to train myself and seek extensive knowledge in leadership management to contribute my own part where required.

“At this level, I am supremely confident that I am fully prepared to handle any aspect and level of leadership that will come along as we move towards 2023 and beyond”
