Before a tree blossomed into its full form, it was a plant, and before that, just a seed planted with the hope that it will grow.

@jayhayhohnsino; If your type contest for any political post in Nigeria you won’t cross party primaries. But fraudsters, drug barons, thugs, crooks, dullard, certificate forgers, oil bunkerers will succeed. And we want Nigeria to be better when our worst brains are in charge. God be with U.
@chinwubah; Getting wealthy is a long journey. It’s not something that occurs sudden. The basic & most important tool is desire.
Then vision, willpower, discover your niche, have role models, humble yourself & keep learning & applying. Then when u break the threshold of limitations, u shine.
