Why billionaire Femi Otedola replaced his old Nokia phones with iPhones

Nigerian billionaire and Forte oil boss, Femi Otedola, who is known for his love for old Nokia phones, has revealed why he ditched his phones for Apple’s iPhone. Femi Otedola who is one of the richest men in Nigeria, had always been pictured with his phones.

A picture was recently shared by one of his daughters on snapchat, with the caption ‘Old Skool’.

Last year, the billionaire was spotted with an iphone and many wondered why the sudden change of heart.

According to him, If you can’t beat them, you join them.

Recall that Femi Otedola released a statement where he endorsed the Governor’s 2nd term titled ‘Ambode has done overwhelmingly well.’ He says….

“As a Lagosian and OMO Ibile, I wish to expressly commend and appreciate The great good work our amiable Governor Ambode is doing in our dear Lagos – Nigeria’s no one State. I have watched and followed keenly, in the last three years of the brilliant transformation projects across the State. No doubt, Ambode is building on the foundations laid by his good predecessors. He is building roads and bridges, schools and hospitals, water treatment plants, sewage and storm water drainages, solid wastes management plants and mass  transportation infrastructure.

“He has recently gotten approved the electricity power infrastructure for Lagos, which when fully executed, will make Lagos State almost energy independent in Nigeria.  You are all aware of the newly-acquired mass transit buses that are going to be natural gas-powered in order for us in Lagos to be the first to comply with the global climate agenda of DE Carbonisations. Clean and Smart Lagos will take us into the modern global village and make us the number four economy in Africa.

“Our visionary governor is also spearheading the modernisation of the Lagos State bureaucracy in order to get all the processes  re-engineered for higher and best performances. A good government is a reflection of an efficient and responsive bureaucracy. It is the catalytic driver for private sector growth. A bad and weak bureaucracy will produce nothing for the people. We are lucky to have an able governor like Ambode at the helm of our affairs.

“He is a knowledge-driven leader, hard working, with passion for our great state.

“My endorsement and recommendations for him to have a second term is performance based and not just the usual conventional  charade of second term endorsement in Nigeria. I am sure that all my respected compatriots, friends and followers will agree with me that Governor Ambode should please continue with his good job till 2023.

“Ambode, please Carry Go, the 2019 election and continue with your passionate work for Lagos State transformation.

“Thank you for being a true servant leader and with your eyes on the ball, surely Lagos State will become number three economy in Africa.”
