Kunle Ade-Ojo, son of Chief Michael Ade-Ojo, Chairman Toyota Nigeria Limited is set to face a new hurdle. In recent years, the man who is currently the Managing Director of Toyota Nigeria has had a predictable schedule. However, with his father announcing he will soon be stepping down from the day-to-day running of the company, there is indeed a gap to be filled.
Despite an endorsement by his father that Kunle will be a good replacement, there are still those who question his ability to conveniently step into his father’s big shoes when the man retires in less than two months. Several scions of billionaire businessmen have failed to live up to expectations when faced with the responsibility of managing their father’s empire. Will the young man join the list?
Kunle Ade-Ojo trained in the United Kingdom, and worked in the United States of America before joining Toyota Nigeria Limited. Kunle is a graduate of Mechanical Engineering from the University of Reading, United Kingdom, he also holds an M.Sc. in Automotive Product Engineering from Cranfield University, United Kingdom.
