The industrialist, Madam Oki made an indelible mark in the business space as a top distributor in the Victoria Island axis of Lagos. She is one of the top distributors of assorted soft drinks, eggs, and other items to several embassies, restaurants, hotels, and others within Victoria Island.
Her innovative thinking, entrepreneurial spirit, unwavering work ethic, and ability to inspire those around her set her apart as a true leader and role model in the business community.
She actively nurtured her 4 boys (Godwin, Daniel, Samson and Samuel) – now men – to the glory of God alongside her husband with the needed parental support, care and Godly way. As a mother, her nurturing spirit was evident in the strong bonds she cultivated with her four children, who now proudly carry forward her legacy. Her commitment to family values and unwavering support served as a foundation upon which her boys thrived into men who now embody her kindness, strength, and resilience.
