Lizzy Anyaonu, the group described Dr. Obiejesi as a titan who took it upon himself the mandate to deepen the local content in the Nigerian oil and gas sector and develop indigenous technological solutions to engineering issues in the sector. His imprints and extraordinary success story, according to the group, is a testament to the fact that the Igboman, when given some wings, will raise his hands and touch the sky.
