Last week Tuesday I was with the wife of the Lagos state governor, Mrs. Bolanle Ambode.
This photo shows myself, her NGO CEO and Mrs. Ambode;
Did you wonder how I got my company to work with the Lagos state government (the richest state in Nigeria)?
Do you think I used my BIG certificate to achieve this?
Well, school is wrong!
School is wrong because it makes people believe that without certificate or job they can’t live normal life.
I have no certificate and no job.
I am an “illiterate” entrepreneur who make good money with great pleasure (by God’s grace)
In about 3hrs from now, I’ll be speaking in a business conference in Lagos
This program was organized by an Igbo group which has couples of P.HD, M.sc, Barristers etc among them.
Isn’t it amazing how “educated” people could be willing to pay an #Illiterate (like me) to come and speak in their presence?
How can a P.HD holder “endure” the “foolishness” that comes from the mouth of a boy who didn’t even finish school?
I don’t understand.
But I have this to tell any young person out there;
Do not be deceived.
Certificate is a #paper and it’s not more than that.
in the real world, nobody cares about the paper in your hand.
Work hard to improve your mind.
Read good books.
Stop complaining about everything. Dream big and Solve some big problems for humanity.
I tell you, White House will beg to see you, even if you never get a decorated paper.
