This person grew up with a single mother and within an environment that sought to keep him in his debilitated state. But he chose at a very young age to look beyond his upbringing and where he was, to where could be. He strove for excellence and refused to be undeterred by his circumstances despite numerous failures. He tried numerous times to get into university, but after many failures got in at the age of 20. He graduated from Obafemi Awolowo Univesity, Nigeria, with bachelor’s degree in Accounting. He has gone on to lead many banks in Nigeria. He also helps children in Nigeria, get out of the environment they are in and grow to his full potential, like he did. He is also a pastor at Christ Embassy Church Lagos.
He is currently married with 3 children who live in Canada, while he continues his work in the church in Nigeria.
