Nigeria’s national flag
For buying copies of School of Money, a motivational book that admonishes Nigerians on the need to invigorate their entrepreneurial spirits, the trio of Mr. Bensmart Onyechere, Mrs. Esther Ajilore and Mr. Oluwaseye Oyetunji, have won N1.750 m.
At a raffle draw held at the National Stadium to commemorate the 52nd anniversary of Nigeria, Onyechere, who won the first prize, went home with N1m, while Ajilore and Oyetunji, who came second and third, went home with N500,000 and N250,000 respectively.
According to the author of the book, Mr. Olumide Emmanuel, School of Money was written to put Nigerian through the secrets, strategies and principles of making money.
“We put the book together after many years of experience and research to serve as one-stop platform for Nigerians, who want to grow their wealth. Unlike similar books that would deal only with theoretical analysis, we moved a bit further by offering what I can describe as practical solutions, based on experiences garnered through interactions with Nigerians over the years,” he said.
The book, which is written to be an entrepreneur’s blueprint, is a hardcover copy of almost 700 pages with a CD and DVD attached.
Relating the feedback from his sales agents and others who marketed the book prior to the day of the draw, Emmanuel said he was impressed with the reactions that have trailed its contents.
Though he lamented the poor reading culture among Nigerian elites, the motivational speaker expressed confidence that the situation would change soon, as a lot of people have since discovered that those who read are always better off in their areas of human endeavours than people who do not read beyond classroom requirement.
Olumide, who addressed a large crowd on financial breakthrough, said the book provides practical steps to financial freedom, based on his over 20 years wealth of experience in the field of wealth creation and entrepreneurship.
Speaking further, he added that “School of Money is a reflection of my commitment to raising a dynamic and truly patriotic young people; a new breed without greed as well as offer a reorientation to the older generation to truly leave an historical yet positively enduring legacy.”
