“We did it! This one has my blood, sweat, and tears in it, and I am super proud,” he wrote.
“In 2018, I was headhunted as a project & program management consultant to lead the applications delivery and integration project – Global IT Manufacturing, for the build of this vehicle. The New Range Rover.
“All we had were rough plans, diagrams of the new build halls, and a small team with a big heart.
“I led a team that was, on average, ten years older and more experienced than me. I was the only person of color (black) in my immediate group but got along very well with everybody.
“In between, I ran for the membership of the House of Representatives, juggling between Abuja Airport and London Heathrow frequently and sometimes working while on flights and trips between Abuja and Makurdi. Sometimes in Nigeria on a Thursday and then back to London on the Sunday.
“In between, COVID hit. We weathered the storm. Kept the project on track. It was hard.
“After all the early mornings, late nights, weekend work, long meetings, heated arguments, and intense presentations. I am super proud of my team’s effort in contributing to the build of this car.
“Glad we are finally able to share this masterpiece with the world. Indeed, this one has my blood and sweat in it, and I will forever cherish the experience.
“Someone in my team once joked, “we are building a car that we won’t be able to afford. “I responded that “there is nothing God cannot do.”
“Oluwa, it’s now time for you to bless your children with this elegance. After all, we don suffer for being. Amen.” he concluded.
