The Nigerian social establishment burst at the seams, literally, on Saturday, January 2017, when Mr Abimbola Ogunbanjo, the President of the Nigerian Stock Exchange, NSE, was conferred with a chieftaincy title in his native home in Erunwon, Ijebuland, Ogun State. He was conferred with Otunba Baamofin of Erunwon title by Oba Adebayo Jonshon Okunbena, the Elerunwon of Erunwon.
His elder brothers – Senator Tokunbo Ogunbanjo and Lekan Ogunbanjo also bagged Otunba Oluomo and Otunba Fiwagboye of Erunwon-Ijebuland, respectively.
The very grand installation ceremony featured a heavy A-list of notable personalities, drawn from all the facets of the Nigerian social circuit.
The Ogunbanjo brothers are the sons of Chief (Dr) Christopher Oladipo Ogunbanjo, captain of industry, baron of commerce, patriarch of the organised private sector and doyen of commercial law practice in Nigeria.
