The golden age 50 is an attainment to relish, because gold is precious. Every athlete whether competing in sprint, soccer, gymnastics or combat, works very hard for the coveted golden medal. Gold is the prized ornament.
In the race of life a man’s 50th birthday is always a celebration to relish. It is a moment of life to make merry. For some people whose good season started early, the golden year is a time to stop and take stock of their life’s achievements, a time to begin to plan for retirement, a time to write one’s Will and appoint administrator and heir.
At 50, every man has garnered sufficient experiences in life. They can talk about what makes life thick, key to success, life’s dreams, regrets, failures, parenting and other responsibilities that come with life as a man grows up.
On the 20th of May, Mr Henry Osunbor, a father, husband, an accountant, a chartered banker, who works as Senior Manager incharge of Business Management and Leasing at Julius Berger Plc, a leading global Civil Engineering and Construction Company marked his 50th birthday. Osunbor’s family, friends and well wishers provided all the camaraderie, tributes, wining and dining, and merriment typical with the celebration of a man who has lived happily half of a century.

An alumnus of the University of Benin and the Chartered Institute of Banking, (CIB) Osunbor worked with the Prosperity Micro-finance Bank in Benin, Edo State, before joining his current employer, JB.
Born on April 26, 1973 in Benin city to the the great Osunbor family in Ohordua, Esan South Local Government Area, Edo State, was raised by his uncle following the demise of his father in 1983. Growing up under a strict uncle who was a soldier helped to shape his life in many positive ways. Those positive experiences which he shared during his 50th birthday have most assuredly laid the foundation for his success.
Flanked by his wife and three lovely children, Henry Osunbor said the oil of his successes is, having a dream, focusing on the dream, praying about the dream and trusting God for the manifestation of the dream. “My success story is wrapped in this piece of advice, focus on your dream, praying about it and believing God for its fulfilment.” Those who dare to dream big and stay focused on their dreams control the world.
Happy 50th birthday to a fine accountant, banker, philanthropist and the latest golden boy, Henry Osunbor. May the years ahead of you be your best years.
