Billionaire Chairman of Globe Motors, Chief Willie Anumudu has passed on

The automotive industry is not an easy one because, in history, there are many founders who were forced to leave their own auto companies but Chief Willie Anumudu was a successful leader who stayed till his last breath. He was a role model for many young Nigerian entrepreneurs and innovators in the automotive space.

According to press reports, Chief Anumudu had been battling some unannounced health challenges for quite some time now and he periodically flew to Germany for treatment. Unfortunately, the recent presidential COVID-19 lockdown and airport closure has made him face difficulties in flying abroad for his usual treatment. This delayed access to treatment allegedly led to his death on Tuesday 21st of April 2020 at about 4 am.

Chief Anumudu’s family and Globe Motors stated in press reports that he tested negative for COVID-19 and was never infected with the novel virus as against what rumors are claiming online.  

It must have been really sad news for Globe Motors Limited to lose its Chairman at this crucial moment when the economy of the country is “shaky” and companies are striving to stay in business.

Globe Motors Limited is one of Nigeria’s foremost car dealership that deals exclusively in both commercial and passenger vehicles from top brands like Hyundai, Toyota, Mercedes-Benz, and more.
