According to him, the profit made from that N30m deal wasn't up to a million naira.
He recalled when he told his wife that one day they would be residents of that same Burj.
Years later, that dream became a reality as he revealed that they now live in the tallest building in the world.
"Don’t ever underrate a man or woman who is committed to the pursuit of his dreams.
"My sermon to you today is, “What is your dream? Are you ruggedly pursuing it? Or are you just fantasizing about it and doing nothing?," he wrote.
