His experience in Oil and Gas marketing, distribution, transportation and logistics operations spans almost two decades.
Since his resumption as the Chairman of the company in 2013, the business has witnessed an evolution of innovations and growth; most recent was the rebranding of the Fatgbems Petroleum brand which was not a change of direction from the initial vision of the company but to reposition the company in the downstream sector in Nigeria.
Mrs. Elizabeth A. Babalola
I am from Ita Iyalode (Ago-Owu), Abeokuta. I spent most of my youthful years between Ibadan and Lagos; although my father worked all over Nigeria and neighboring countries by virtue of his profession.
I accepted the nomination of a matron of Lisabi Elite organization a few years ago and i consider it a privilege as well as an important responsibility vested on me as a community leader. Initially, I was anxious not knowing what my expectations were; I am thankful to God that against all odds He has been faithful in meeting the needs of the organization as they unfolded over the years and I believe that He will not let me down in living up to my expectations in that role.
Family: I am a mother of four wonderful and God-fearing sons and a grandmother of an adorable and beautiful granddaughter. My husband, Dr. Olufemi O. Babalola, The Obalumo of Oke-Ila Orangun of 35 years has remained loving and supportive in every way and I have no regrets in referring to him as my sweetheart till death do us part. I thank God for making him the role model to our sons.
Career: I graduated as a Registered Nurse in 1976 from the famous Lagos State School of Nursing (Awolowo Road). My family immigrated to the United States in 1981 and has since been in quest for a continued career growth. I own and operate a small sized Home Health Agency and thank God for award of excellence in such venture. I have returned to school several times for higher degrees. I am currently a Board Certified Family Nurse Practitioner and a Doctoral Candidate in one of Texas renowned Universities. People ask me, “Why are you still in school?”
The answer is simple, leaving a legacy persistence and excellence for the next generation.
I am from Alli’s compound at Oke saje in Abeokuta. My father and mother hail from Abeokuta. It is a special honor to be given the opportunity to serve humanity.
I accepted the Matron position of Lisabi Elite Association of Houston because I am always happy to be associated with whatever will promote the cultural values of our homeland Abeokuta. I also love anything that will benefit the needy and the under privileged. Thanks to Lisabi Elite Association for the good work they are doing in our community in Houston Texas and in Abeokuta as a whole. With great love Kike Bello
We are very proud to be associated with Matron Kike Bello, right from when she was a member until she accepted the position of a Matron. Her dedication and contributions to this noble Association is immeasurable.
My name is Deaconess Bola Stephen, I hail from Oke Itoku in Abeokuta. I am a business woman and also a servant in the house of the Lord. I am very passionate about giving back to the community especially to the kids. Those that know me very well will tell you that is one of the reasons I went into the day care business. I was a member of lisabi elite association for a long time before the association decided to honor me with one of the Matrons of the Association.
I decided to accept the nomination of matron because I love people are givers, and those that give up their time, money and energy in order to better the lives of others. I see all these attributes in the Lisabi Elite association members, hence I decided to even carry more responsibilities than I have been doing before.
I want to give kudos to members of the Association for all the charitable projects they are doing in Houston and in Abeokuta. Egba a gbe wa o.
