I Have A Story!

I hope the story you are about to read will strike one or two readers.

My arrival into this country – Nigeria in Ondo town to be specific was as a result of the union between a man and a woman. Lols!

Anyway, I am the seventh child in a family of ten. Can you imagine. Thanks to my able and caring mother who allowed me to come into this world when some mothers could have aborted my pregnancy. Thank God also that He did not allow me to be conceived by such a wicked mother who could have aborted me in the name of family planning.

I came from an average background where my limitations never stopped me from achieving my goals, I don’t believe in impossibility. Why? Because my father played a vital role in this aspect.

It was my father who used to tell me this and I want to quote him verbatim; ” nothing is impossible for a willing mind” and that has made me to keep on telling myself “what your mind can conceive your hands will achieve”

My parents taught me the value of education, hard work and determination to succeed.

Every phase in a man’s life prepares him for a particular relevant assignment in the near future.

I hate dishonesty and pride. I like integrity and hard work and that is why I have this political view in the words of Winston Churchill who says “we make a living by what we get but we make a LIFE by what we GIVE”

That’s the philosophy that drives my life and I have this quote to myself;

Everything a man goes through in life is a preparatory ground towards the fulfillment of his destiny – Akinbobola, July 1999.
