Mike Adenuga is not just one of Nigeria’s richest men; he is also a philanthropist who has impacted positively on millions of lives. His impact on humanity is like a vein of water hidden underground but quietly making the grass green.
For silently touching millions of lives every year, the Apesin of Ijebuland and Chairman of Globacom has been picked by City People magazine as its man of the year. Every year, City People usually picks a man or woman who by virtue of his or her actions has touched the lives of many Nigerians as its person of the year.
