"I didn’t become the Chairman of UBA Group and Transcorp Group because I had wealthy parents, went to the best schools, or was the most intelligent in my state or country. Your circumstances today must not define your future.
“Few things helped me in life: hard work, discipline, sacrifice, and obedience to elders and my parents.
“Embrace hard work, discipline and sacrifice: I realized growing up that the way to get to the top is to go the extra mile. Tell yourself that there is no other way to get there if you don’t work hard. Have the discipline to say no to things that don’t serve you, and sacrifice now for future rewards. If you work hard, and are disciplined, you will get what you desire in life.
“Be yourself – This was an advice I gave to Oge when she resumed at London School of Economics. There are so many distractions and influences in the world we live in. Over time, people start to doubt their identity and act in an alien manner. Don’t go against your values because you want to be perceived as “sociable”. Anyone who doesn’t accept you the way you are, should leave.”

“Study at night, take your studies serious, and know there are no short cuts; these and more helped me in life.
“Be disciplined to avoid bad habits and to do what you ought to do; take corrections from teachers and parents, and at higher institutions be responsible.
“Make sacrifices. I did make a lot of sacrifices to achieve my today. Make priorities, have the will power to rise above negative influences and go for positives to gain rewards in future."
