I remembered the day I sat in your office about five years ago ,though our meeting was brief but, I will never forget the impact that it had on me.I looked at your work table and there was nothing on it but your phones, and I made up my mind from that day, never to work for money ,but to work to fulfill purpose .I didn’t get the opportunity I came for ,but I got something that was far better that.I wish you the best in your next level.I look forward to the day, that people like you will be given the opportunity to lead this Country!!! Cheers


Huge, strategic move. Seeing ahead and positioning for the future. Though it may take some time, oil business will be almost completely out in the near future. Talk about self’driving electir cars etc it’s already happening. All the best sir and may you find the best hands to deliver excellently on this!šŸ‘ŒšŸ‘Œ


That the different between a businessman and a reformer, you are not only making the money but the difference kudos sir.
