However, challenges are meant to be surmounted, that has been my mindset. Every challenge always come to pass away, and they make you stronger, firmer and open your eyes to new possibilities. What motivated me to continue in the business despite the challenges, were the testimonies from the clients who have benefited from our services. That is one of my driving forces, it gets me on my feet. I look up to the likes of Pastor Dr Kirkland Kathy, based in Texas USA,” he said.

I’m a goal getter and I don’t easily give up on things or people. I am the first of a family of four, my mum is retired while my Dad is Late. I schooled at Nnamdi Azikiwe University, I studied Electronics Engineering. I was inspired to go into business due to the intense hunger to touch lives and this year, 2020, I plan to influence and impact the lives of 1 million people.”
