Akintola Williams CFR, CBE, FCA:
A man regarded with awe not only by most members of the accountancy profession but also other professionals, business moguls, government officers in Nigeria and the international community. He, in many respects has also been a source of inspiration to many youths, some of whom have decided to become chartered accountants because of their admiration of him. A multi-faceted man, who has led the way in accountancy, music (MUSON), the Nigerian Stock Exchange and a myriad of philanthropic endeavours, he stands tall as the epitome of integrity and a consumate role-model for the hard work ethic.
Known to many as Mama MUSON, Oye Williams stood as a pillar of support in the home, in the work place and in the community. With passion, she drove the ideals for the benefit of the citizens within her community. Many decades ago, she had deleted the word, ‘impossible’ from her dictionary and made great strides, whether it be with the Keep Lagos Clean Campaign, VIIRA, the Lions Club, MUSON or her church, Olowogbowo Methodist Church. She is greatly remembered for her strength of character and tireless activity for the benefit of others.
