Aminu said the Cubana Group was fast becoming a household name despite the economic downturn in the country. He said: “Since your foray into the Nigerian business scene in 2006, your dexterity and versatility have made you metamorphose from a modest restaurateur, catering for the middle class into a fullfledged hospitality chain for the business and social elite in the country.

“Over the years, we have followed your growth trajectory from the humble beginnings at Ibiza Investments to the Cubana Group, a creative, innovative and luxurious hospitality conglomerate with outposts spread across Lagos, Abuja, Owerri, Enugu and Port Harcourt.

In the various cities where you operate, you have redefined luxury, leisure and entertainment through the provision of quality services of international standards.

“We note with pride how you changed the concept of nightclubbing in Nigeria by creating special brands such as the Cubana Groove, Grand Cubana and Cubana Hustle & Bustle, just to mention a few. You recently diversified into other sectors with the floating of the Cubana Trading and Investment Company, the distributors of Odogwu Bitters and the establishment of Cassa Cubana, a real estate venture, building affordable luxury homes for Nigerians.”
