Ola-Kleen Celebrates 36th Anniversary, Splashes Millions on Deserving Staff

At the 36th anniversary celebration held yesterday in Yaba, Lagos, O’la-Kleen Holdings employees were treated to a night of relaxing music and exciting activities, signalling a significant victory over the many difficulties the business has faced in reaching great heights in Nigeria and around the world.

In his introductory remarks, the General Managing Director, Engr Ade Ogundeyin, thanked God for guiding the company through many obstacles to become the success story that it is today. He stated that, while Nigeria has man-made difficulties, he considers them as stepping stones to success rather than roadblocks.

During the long service award celebration, the majority of deserving employees who had worked for the company for 5, 10, and 20 years, respectively, received awards, gifts, and huge sums of money. This yearly event is seen by the staff as a practice that allows everyone on the team to have fun and bond with one another.
