Ribena Seminar On Good Values

Ribena Good Values Education Seminar For Teachers

Key and lock values


Someone needs to teacher our children the way to go

Your choices really count

Children are forming their character 

Who are the other stake holder

The head of school 

The teacher 

The workman 

The other students 

The parents 

The consequences of our choices have effects on other people 

The choices that you make have consequences

Nobody takes responsibility 

We must take responsibility for the consequences of any choice that we make. 

When we don't take responsibility :-*:O, we deny ourselves 

Good choices = good results 

Bad choices = bad results 

We must learn from the consequences. 

What is in this lesson for me. 
This is painful and should not transfer to another person. 

Learn to take consequences. 

You can run but you cannot hide. 

Changing The world

Be the change that you want in the world. 

Change your thinking to change your values in lives. 

Be conscious of your thoughts. 

Your destiny is in your hand 

The need for ethical and performance values in action

We don't need to push someone off the road to get better off. 

Think of ways to make other people better off. 

You must be value driven to add more values to people in the world 

We need to learn the balance between the level of high standards and mercy 

Types of Values

The ethical values and

Performance values.... 

Values : what are values






Values are those treasures that store up in heaven 

We must work hard. Our values are our building blocks of lives. 

Values are the building blocks of character 

How are values learned

 Through instruction 

By doing what is right 

By learning from our mentors 

By habitation or practice 

Smart is not Good and Smart is not Good

Teachers affect Eternity

Sleep Sleep Sleep. reasons why students sleep a lot in class.

There are reasons why students sleep a lot in class.

Parental reasons: some parents get home late and then they break the sleep of their children. This is because they have to carry them from business space to home

Some wake up so early thinking the child will sleep in the car

Call parents to inform them of the impact of work cycle on their wards

School reasons: the condition of the classroom can be so dull to affect children to sleep.
Children interact a lot with colours and designs. The classroom should have beautiful colours and designs. Well decorated!

Teachers reasons: boring teachers makes the child sleeps. This is compounded when the subject is boring or difficult to understand. Teachers should be creative with teaching.

Psychological reasons: some children sleeps uncontrollably because of brain functions. Such will pee on the bed when sleeping and they have long duration of sleep. No matter where they are, it is their mind alertness that is not high. Engage such in a mind development exercise like read aloud words, memory recitations, ask such to go and read a word in another class and he or she should come and tell you. His mind will be very alert.

I have tried several things in my child therapy sessions and we get serious results. Try these and let me know the development.

Better be or lose everything all

A group of 50 people attended a seminar. Suddenly the speaker stopped and started giving each person a balloon. Each one was asked to write his/her name on it using a marker. Then all the balloons were collected and put in another room. Now these delegates were let in that room and asked to find the balloon which had their respective names written on within 5 minutes. Everyone was frantically searching for their names, pushing and colliding with each other, and there was utter chaos. At the end of 5 minutes, no one could find their own balloons. Now each one was asked to randomly collect a balloon and give it to the person whose name was written on it. Within minutes everyone had their own balloons. The speaker began: This is exactly what is happening in our lives. Everyone is frantically looking for happiness all over the place, not knowing where it is. Our happiness lies in the happiness of other people. Help them Find their happiness and you will get your own happiness too. And this is the purpose of human life... Learn to put a smile on someone's face, and you will also smile in due course.​

Wonderful Uses of Charcoal. Sounds Too Good To Be True


Its uses domestically are numerous but majorly for cooking.
Charcoal is one of the most disregarded products at home. We only see the need for it when it is time to set fire for Banku.
However, if you really need first aid, charcoal is something you need to have on you all the time, you might not know this but it is one of the most medicinal products you can have at home due to its poison extraction ability.
In case you never gave it much attention, this is the time to do so. Here are 13 benefits of charcoal you never thought about.

1. Preventing Odour.
Does your shoe smell bad? just get some charcoal and put it in them. Do you have any bad smell in your room? Drop some charcoal where you suspect the smell could be coming from. Does your fridge or freezer smell? Put a piece of charcoal in it. Do you have strong body odour? Just make a powder out of charcoal and use, thank us later.
Charcoal is very good at getting rid of bad smell. Ever wondered why your parents always scooped out the ash from the coal pot to pour in the hen coop or toilet before sweeping? That was to get rid of the odour.

2. Keeping Food Fresh.
If you want your vegetables to be fresh all the time, just make a solution out of charcoal and leave your vegetables in them. Thank us later.

3. Removing Toxins From Food.
These days, people complain about the use of fertilizers on plants and vegetables, making them unwholesome and poisonous. If you have charcoal, you don't need to worry about this, all you need to do is leave the vegetables in a charcoal solution overnight and it'll take care of the toxins. If you suspect any food contains too many chemicals, just drop them in a charcoal solution for some hours and you're good to go.

4. For Teeth Whitening.
If you want to whiten your teeth, pay no attention to all these adverts on whitening chemicals and technology, just get yourself some charcoal and grab hold of a plantain stalk, make a powder out of the charcoal, mash the tip of the plantain stalk, dip it into the charcoal powder and brush your teeth with it for a week, thank us later.

5. Restoring Soup That Went Bad.
Did your groundnut soup or palm nut soup go bad? No need to worry about pouring it all away. Just put it back on fire and drop a piece of charcoal in it. This will extract all the bad taste and smell and restore the soup to its fresh state.

6. Detoxifying.
Do you have a hangover out of a drink out with friends the previous night, just have some charcoal with you and chew on it. To make it more effective, make a nice solution out of it and drink, you're good to go.

7. Neutralizing Alcohol.
If you mistakenly did some wild mixing and feel it can knock you out, just add some charcoal to the mixture and your problem is solved. Or if you took in too much alcohol, just drink some charcoal solution and you're good to go.

8. Healing Wounds.
Do you have a situation where someone's wound has become so infected to the state doctors are saying they have to cut the affected area? Don't stress over it, get a large amount of charcoal powder and pour it on the wound. This will extract all the poison from the wound and also help it heal faster. If you have a cut and you want to treat it fast, just get some powdered charcoal and pour on it.

9. Water Filtration.
Do you feel your water is contaminated? You don't need all these products on the market, charcoal can do better, just drop some amount of it in it. Don't worry about the colour, it is safe, you can even chew on charcoal. It is far safer than eating chicken from KFC.

10. Skin Cleansing.
Do you have pimples, acne or any skin disease you really want to get rid of or do you want a very smooth face or skin? All you need is charcoal. Make a thick solution out of it and smear it on your body and leave it on for some hours before taking your bath. It will leave your skin smooth and fresh.

11. Stain Removal.
Do you have some stubborn stain in your kitchen, washroom or on your tiles? You actually need charcoal to get rid of it. I know you're imagining how this black stainy product can actually remove stains right? Just try it, it works like magic.

12. Getting Rid Of A Bloated Stomach.
If you ate or drank something and feel bloated, charcoal is the best solution to get rid of the bloating.

13. Gets Rid Of Bad Cholesterol In You.
Making a solution out of it and drinking helps eliminate all the bad cholesterol you have stored in you.

14. Ulcer Treatment.
Charcoal can treat all the ulcers out there you can think of including stomach ulcer. Just make it a habit to always chew on some.

There are various ndustrial use too but the major ones; bakery industry, melting industry for materials such as iron, metals, rubber etc, among few others.

PRODUCTION:... We produce quality charcoal from hardwoods, like thick, Orin dudu, apepe, dongo yaro and the like, sorry I could not get English name for those one.
Mature trees can only be found in thick bush and are fell down with saw machine.
They will be cut into sizes which people could carry. Next is blanching I.e cutting the leaves after about a week of cutting. After is the loading or arranging the branched trees together. The next step is covering with leaves and sand for it must burn without air else it will turn to ashes
After about two weeks it will finish burning and will be ready for removal. When removed, you will put inside sacks and ready for sale.

You must take government license called permit before cutting the trees.
You must also belong to produce and sell before you will be allowed to cut.

Once the charcoal is bagged, you can either sell at the farm to marketers or sell your self to end user,
If you are selling at the you collect your money right on the spot, and presently it is sold between #1,000 and #1,200 multiply that by 100 bags
If you want to sell to the end user, transportion is a major challenge from farm to final destination, because of its nature, cabstar, containner or pick up car maybe appropriate the least you will pay per bag is 300 depending on the distance.
Also there are external factor such, police, Forrester on the road
The least price which you will sell is 1,600 depending on the area also multiply that by 100
Finally, if you don't belong to the marketer group you can't sell. There are places where they produce charcoal, Igbo ora, Alabata etc.

how to enjoy the job that you hate How to enjoy the job you hate.

Hi how to enjoy the job that you hate 

How to enjoy the job you hate.

1. Meet your boss with an open mind, and listen to his perspective and what he expects of you. It may inspire you to come up to his expectations.

2. Upgrade your knowledge and skills. It will improve your efficiency, and your performance will not go unnoticed.

3. Break the habit of complaining about your job to all and sundry. Try to look for the silver lining; you will feel better.

4. Remember some people would yearn to get your job, so don't take it for granted. It may not be the perfect job for you, but focus on what you can do now to make things better.

5. If you feel something can be improved in general, for the organization, discuss your ideas with your boss. You never know, it may appeal to her.

Always live a life of purpose.

Why are we so messed up as a nation. How did we get here in the first instance and how do we get out

This one breaks me all the time...

Yesterday I was telling my younger brother of how I heard of a certain science teacher in my locality who went online to get values for physics practical experiments last year instead of doing the experiments with his students and they all failed when the results came out....

And my brother remarked...

"He didn't get his values from the right site na."

He further enlightened me as he had done before, on several sites on the internet where by sending recharge cards of N400 naira, students have access to questions and answers of the exams they are writing, real-time. With a subscription of N800 naira the answers are sent directly to your phone, with N400 naira you have to go online to get your answers.

These sites always have all exam papers, probably a day or two before the exams. And they have the solutions too. And they are several of them:,,,,, etc. doing adverts, competing for patronage like legitimate businesses.

On these sites are the testimonies of Nigerian students. "Thank you XXX for making me pass." "God bless you for saving me." "You people are the best, I have so so distinctions." I just saw the testimony of a student on Exam Crown who got 7 A1 and a B3 from using their service.

I went to one such sites yesterday at the risk of getting a heart attack. I always knew they existed but had deliberately avoided them. And lo, in front of me were solutions to the physics exam students were sweating in the hall on yesterday. The solutions online were posted on the 19th, a day before the exam. Students typically have access to the solutions a few minutes to the commencement of the exams, of course to make maximum 'sales' as PINs could be shared if the answers were released earlier. Several of these students still need the cooperation of invigilators and their schools to use their phones in the exam halls to access the answers, while others take advantage of large examination centres to do their thing surreptitiously. Visit one of these sites and see how so damn easy it is to pass. It breaks my heart as a teacher.

My bro says those sites basically insult NECO. Their own questions are online two days before the exams, sometimes they do bonanza and give people answers for free for NECO exams. When WAEC sends teachers specimen lists ten days before the exams these guys have them online weeks before the exams.

See what education in our country has been reduced to. Why will our students read when they can pass with N400 naira recharge cards? Why will they not laugh at the teachers that try to make them study hard? When a budget of 4000 naira will get them through ten subjects. Why do we train students for six years in secondary school and not let them write their exams because we are doing "business"? Why does everything about this society has to be about making money?

So we have students getting 8 distinctions now and 300 in UTME yet having no substance in their heads. These ones will gain admissions into university, blocking the chances of the good students who legitimately got their 5 credits and 220 in UTME. So many of our good students won't gain admission. My John James couldn't gain admission with a score of 260+ in UTME last year. God'stime is a great student but he'd be lucky to gain admission with his 280+ this year.

Why are we so messed up as a country? Why does insanity thrive so openly? Who are these Nigerians who are destroying this system for pecuniary gains? Aren't they the same Nigerians who complain daily of the state of this country? Aren't they the youth who should be the future of this country? The same young people who cry daily of how our father's generation failed us? Have we all gotten to the point were we've decided that Nigeria is irredeemable and the only course of action is burning its rubble to ashes?

The rot in education is particularly sad, because it has ripple effects, spreading across all sectors. Imagine students using these sites to get 8 distinctions and 330 so they can go study medicine and surgery to become doctors. Imagine them wanting to become engineers, scientists, lawyers, etc. They'd most likely have to oil their way through school and come out deficient in whatever fields they find themselves in...even with great results.

Are our exam bodies unaware of these sites? Are we saying nothing can be done? Can the phone numbers these recharge cards are sent to not be tracked? Can the sites not be shut down somehow?

I just don't understand this country. Tiring.

This is just unfortunate. Young Nigerians lacking ingenuity in ideas and morality in behaviour.

This is just unfortunate. Young Nigerians lacking ingenuity in ideas and morality in behaviour.

Permit me to say that the students, parents, teachers and government all share from the blame in 1:2:3:4 respectively (my opinion).

》The students have the least of the blame because they are vulnerable and rightly so.

》The parents share a larger portion than the students for failing to uphold family values within the unit of the family. A child that is well trained from home will strive to behave well at all times, speak the truth and won't have the flair for illegal misdmeanours.

》 The Teachers share a much larger share of the blame because they should serve as role models for all students and strongly fight against exam malpractice whilst maintaining the highest discipline possible in all our institutions. The teaching profession should not be a last resort for job seekers but rather a job for highly skilled and well paid professionals.

》Lastly the government, I don't even know where to start but one thing is certain.... *Misplaced priorities* is their problem. A country that its government priotises the funding of static sectors of its economy e.g entertainment, tourism etc and abandons the dynamic sectors, most especially education, science and technology, will never achieve development of any kind.

Take a look at the so-called world powers today, USA, UK, Germany, France, China, Russia even North Korea etc....they all have something in common and which is; extremely high standard of education across all levels.
A total revamp of our education is needed to arrest the situation. May us, our children and future generations from this plague affecting our growth as a nation.

Types of Teachers in our Days

Parting gift..

Types of Teachers in our Days

1) *The restricted professional*.
This teachers does the job in a basic way, but with no sparks. Goes on courses when told to. Copies rather than develops what s/he's taught. Doesn't notice what other teachers do.

2) *The extended professional*.

This teacher also does the job but is constantly looking for ways of improving practice. Goes on courses and is often disappointed or even angered by them. Develops rather than copies ideas. Is interested in what other teachers do. Has understood that we wouldn't trust a doctor who didn't keep up and innovative. So there is no reason to trust a teacher that doesn't either.

3) *The technician*

This person is a different animal in the classroom from what he is in public. Has to work on technique because to act naturally would cause trouble. This is not necessarily a bad thing because this teacher may well be constantly thinking about his or her work.

4) *The natural*

Apart from the beer, the flirtation, the politics and the risque jokes, what he is in public is what he is in the classroom. This has advantages but it also has disadvantages. Perhaps this teacher would gain from work on technique.

5) *The cynic*

Usually sits in the same chair in the staffroom everyday. Has his or her own mug. Has been wherever you think it might be good for you and your class to wasn't much good and s/he doesn't recommend it.

1 John 2:1-11 KJV

My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked. Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning. Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth. He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now. He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him. But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.

There are things in life you need to be sure about because so much depends on the outcome. Your salvation is such an issue.  The Bible warns that many are deceived about this crucial matter (Luke 13:27). Christianity is not just knowing about God but knowing God.  John 17:3 says, "This is eternal life that they may know you, the only true God and Jesus Christ whom you have sent." Christianity at its heart is, knowing God personally through Jesus Christ.

Our text identifies practical evidence that may help you be sure that you know God personally.  Some of the evidences are that you: Fellowship with the brethren, keep God's Commandments, walk as Jesus walked and love the brethren.  God's Commandments are in the New Testament.  Let us mention a few here.  Christians are commanded to: abstain from idols (Acts 15:20); awake to righteousness (1Cor. 15:34); ask in order to receive (Mathew 7:7), and many more.  To walk as Jesus walked means doing everything with the aim of pleasing your heavenly Father.  Jesus said "My food is to do the will of Him who sent me and to finish His work" (John 4:34).  Love of the brethren is also paramount.  In all, God expects you to live an exemplary life that others may see Him through you.

What products does a teacher really produce?

*Pass on to the teachers you know.*πŸ‘Œ

Dedicated to all the teachers

From A School Principal's speech at a graduation......

He said "The Doctor wants his child to become a doctor...
the Engineer wants his child to become an engineer...
The Businessman wants his ward to become CEO...
BUT a teacher also wants his child to become one of them, as well..!!
Nobody wants to become a teacher BY CHOICE"...
Very sad but that's the truth..!!

The dinner guests were sitting around the table discussing life.

One man, a CEO, decided to explain the problem with education. He
argued, "What's a kid going to learn from someone who decided his best
option in life was to become only a teacher?"

To stress his point he said to another guest;
"You're a teacher, Mrs Sharma. Be honest. What do you make?"

Teacher Mrs Sharma, who had a reputation for honesty and frankness
replied, "You want to know what I make?
(She paused for a second, then began...)

"Well, I make kids work harder than they ever thought they could.

I make a C+ feel like the Congressional Medal of Honor winner.

I make kids sit through 40 minutes of class time when their parents
can't make them sit for 5 min. without an I- Pod, Game Cube or movie

You want to know what I make?

(She paused again and looked at each and every person at the table)

I make kids wonder.

I make them question.

I make them apologize and mean it.

I make them have respect and take responsibility for their actions.

I teach them how to write and then I make them write.
Keyboarding isn't everything.

I make them read, read, read.

I make them show all their work in math.

They use their God given brain, not the man-made calculator.

I make my students from other countries learn everything they need to
know about India while preserving their unique cultural identity.

I make my classroom a place where all my students feel safe.

Finally, I make them understand that if they use the gifts they were
given, work hard, and follow their hearts, they can succeed in life.

(Mrs Sharma paused one last time and then continued.)

Then, when people try to judge me by what I make, with me knowing
money isn't everything, I can hold my head up high and pay no
attention because they are ignorant. You want to know what I make?


What do you make Mr. CEO? Only money?

His jaw dropped; he went silent.


Actually very worth sending again & again - especially to those from
other professions who think they are above teachers

What is the most important part of the body

My Father used to ask me what the most important part of the body is. Through the years I would take a guess at what I thought was the correct Answer.-

When I was younger, I thought sound was very important to us as humans, so I said, "My ears, Daddy."

He said, "No. Many people are deaf. But you keep thinking about it
and I will ask you again soon."

Several years passed before he asked me again. Since making my first attempt, I had contemplated the correct answer.

So this time I told him, "Daddy, sight is very important to everybody, so it must be our eyes."

He looked at me and told me, "You are learning fast, but the answer is not correct because
there are many people who are blind."

Stumped again, I continued my quest for knowledge and over the years, Father asked me a couple more times and always his answer was, "No. But you are getting smarter every year, my child."

Then one year, my mother died. Everybody was hurt. Everybody was crying.

My Father looked at me when it was our turn to say our final good-bye to my Mother. He asked me, "Do you know the most important body part yet, my dear?"

I was shocked when he asked me this now. I always thought this was a game between him and me.
He saw the confusion on my face and told me, "This question is very important. It shows that you have really lived in your life. For every body part you gave me in the past, I have told you were wrong and
I have given you an example why.

But today is the day you need to learn this important lesson."

He looked down at me and threw his head to my shoulder and hugged me. I saw his eyes well up with tears. He said, "My dear, the most important body part is your shoulder."

I asked, "Is it because it holds up my head?"

He replied, "No, it is because it can hold the head of a friend or a loved one when they cry. Everybody needs a shoulder to cry on sometime in life, my dear. I only hope that you have enough love and friends that you will always have a shoulder to cry on when you need it."

Then and there I knew the most important body part is not a selfish one. It is made for others and not for yourself. It is sympathetic to the pain of others.

People will forget what you said. People will forget what you did.
But people will NEVER forget how you made them feel.

The origination of this letter is unknown, but it brings a blessing to everyone who passes it on. Good friends are like stars...You don't always see them, but you always know they are there.

Share this with a friend even if it is a repeat message, I just did!

"Whatever you do, do it to your fullest and the rest leave it to God Almighty"

Prince Yemisi Shyllon... A man to learn a lot from. A true life lesson that could transform lives

I want this to be circulated to all our staff. They have a lot to learn. And the lessons could change some lives:



Prince Yemisi Shyllon is somewhat an enigma. He is many things rolled into one: he is a chartered engineer, chartered stockbroker, chartered marketer, chartered business administrator, qualified lawyer and consummate art collector. And he has excelled in all!

The first time I visited Shyllon's house standing on a stretch of almost a whole street (13 years ago), it took him three unbroken hours to conduct me round all the rooms housing his assorted art collections. When I went there last week for this interview, so much had taken place that it would take a whole day to go round and we might not even finish.
He is widely reckoned to own the most balanced art collections with over 7,000 artworks comprising sculptures, paintings, and other media which are valued to be worth several billions of Naira -although he doesn't want to be drawn into the issue of costing.
Quietly, Shyllon, who retired as Marketing Director from Nigerite a couple of years back, is creating what could be described as a revolution in the arts arena. He is getting set to commission the first privately-funded public museum with the Pan-Atlantic University, Lekki, Lagos, which construction plus the art content is expected to be over N4 billion at the current market value when completed. He has endowed the only professorial chair in Visual Art at the University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT) among other things.
While we were in his bedroom admiring all his art collections, I asked him what was the driving force for all those collections. His answer: "By the time I am gone, I want my name to be in the realm of immortality by turning over all my major collections into the public museum I am building."
You sure will enjoy Shyllon's insights on how to build wealth from ground zero up.

Lesson 1
Plan your future from the first day you start work.

I started planning my personal finance the very first day I started work because I was conscious of the fact that you never could tell what would happen tomorrow. When I finished my MBA (Master in Business Administration), I bought a plot of land at Ejigbo, in Lagos State, and built two houses of four flats each there. That was the kind of attitude I had as a young man.
At the same time I was investing in real estate, I also started investing in shares which over time earned me fortune. I started buying shares when I was at the University of Ibadan (UI). They were selling shares then, 60 or 68 kobo; as a student, I would just buy about 100 shares, 200 shares, buy art work. I am reaping from this today. I was conscious of the fact that little drops of water make a mighty ocean. The little I have is based on self-deprivation, being visionary, and taking up opportunities that came my way .

Educate yourself very well.

When you spend money to invest in educating yourself, you move yourself ahead of the pack who do not believe in this because the more you know, the deeper you see. Spend time reading and educating yourself. Aspire to know more about what you are getting involved in . I decided to become a chartered stockbroker because I was investing in shares. I knew it was going to be a large part of my investment portfolio in future and my stockbroking knowledge has helped me a lot.
Also, I decided to study Law because I was thinking about old age and the fact that I was going to be involved in a lot of properties, I don't want to be paying lawyers. Today, when I sign agreements I take advantage of being a lawyer. I don't go to court, but I am servicing myself and my family. You must develop yourself personally. For instance, I am not an artist, but I have learnt a lot about artistry. I spend time to learn what I do.

Don't use all your hands to eat.

Don't use all your hands to eat. Remember there will be time when what you have may not be available again, and you will have to rely on what you had put together. When I was working, I had a policy, 10 per cent of my money every month must go into investment. I am talking about liquid investment, and another 10 per cent would go into non-liquid investment. The remaining 80 per cent we used to take care of myself and my family. When you spend all the money you get, you have eaten both the seed and the harvest. You have sown a seed of disaster into your future.

Don't borrow; don't lend.

That is one thing I learnt from The Richest Man in Babylon. It said, never borrow, never lend, and I have maintained that principle since I read that book many years ago. It says, put aside 10 per cent of what you have and one day, it will grow to become something great. It says when you lend, you don't get back what you give out, you will diminish, you will create enemies in the process, and they would pay you in bits. 'Never borrow, never lend' principle allows you to develop the instinct to save and put on your thinking cap towards investing in the future.

Don't trust people on face value.
While I was working, I employed a young man at a low level in whom I had so much confidence, and I believed he could be groomed to by my successor. I allowed him some privileges like going for his MBA while working . He also went to study Law as I did. So, I was like a hero to him. But I did not listen to the suggestion of the people who hinted that my protΓ©gΓ© was not what he claimed to be. That turned out a disaster because I later discovered that the guy hid so many things about his past from me. So, I tell people that if I had to live my life all over again, before I venture into any kind of relationship with anybody, I will find out about his/her pedigree.

Go with your passion.

From my inside, I knew I was an artist. I did Arts till Class Three in the secondary school. In my time, you had to be a scientist to be said to be brilliant and I took pride in being a genius at Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. So, I did Sciences, I dropped Arts. But it was in me; as a kid I used to trace a lot, but I foolishly dropped Arts. But by a combination of forces, my interest in art was rekindled and I started collecting artworks. I have been collecting them since 1976. Right now, I have over 7,000 artworks in my house. I have an invaluable collection of arts, spreading from the 9th century Igbo-Ukwu Art to date. My collections cover all the history of the Nigerian Art. So, I am back to my first love.

Lesson 7
Don't let your taste rise with your status.
The major error I see many people make is to allow their taste to catch up with their rising status. When I was the Marketing Manager at UAC, I was living at Olodi Apapa (Ajegunle) and paying a rent of N200. Shortly after, I became a Director with a housing allowance of N65,000 per annum, but I retained my Olodi Apapa accommodation for 15 months. I put the money together, and within two years, I bought the land off Allen Avenue, Ikeja, for N125,000 on which I built my five-storey building. It now fetches me about N18 million per annum. I was putting my money in a cooperative, and when it matured I took N500,000. My housing allowance at the time had become N250,000 per annum; I collected it for two years, and built the N1.2 million five-storey building in 1989. My first rent was four N4million. I can go on like that.
After 15 months at Olodi, I moved to GRA (in Ikeja) where I rented a house for N15,000 per annum, even when my annual housing allowance was N250,000. It was a three-bedroom bungalow. I was living low.

First is trusting people too much.
I am somebody that trusts to a fault. I take people as if they are like me, and I have been beaten very hard. One example is my wife's cousin who came to me and said he and others were setting up a bank, Eagle Credit Bank, when former President Ibrahim Babangida's Administration was issuing banking licences. When I told him I did not have money, he said they could use my five-storey building as equity. Eventually, the licence did not come, and they had borrowed heavily, and it was a problem repaying the loan. Unfortunately, I gave a personal guarantee. Before I knew what was happening, they wanted to sell my house to redeem the loan. But thank God, I put my knowledge of Law into good use and that saved the house.

The Autobiography of Azikiwe

When I was building my wealth, I called my wife and we agreed that all our children should go to public schools, as opposed to the more expensive private schools. All our children attended public schools. By the grace of God, my three children are abroad now. Two have finished their Master's degrees and are working, while the last born is rounding off his right now. I can afford it because I have investments to back me up. One must plan one's future, not in line with what another person is doing but what one thinks is good for one. I was lucky to have married a woman who agreed with me.

Many of us are having serious financial problems in our lives not because we don't have access to money BUT we are bad money managers
