Barely two months after securing victory in court as the authentic Chairman of Ikeja Hotels Plc, Mr. Goodie Ibru has resigned from the office.
He said the move was in the overall interest of the company and the larger Ibru family, and the need to get Ikeja Hotels to perform optimally.
A statement on Sunday quoted Ibru as saying that the performance of Ikeja Hotels had been hampered by multiple law suits filed by shareholders in the contest for the management and control of the company.
According to him, the decision of Justice Kafarati of the Federal High Court, Abuja on December 21, 2016 confirming him as the chairman, vindicated his struggle for corporate governance in the company and provided the right timing for him to retire as founding chairman after 32 successful years in office.
He called on the younger generation of Ibrus to work with other shareholders to continue to carry on the torch of excellence for which Ikeja Hotels had been known for.
