Why I Didn't Go To The University - Nigeria's Richest Woman

Why I Didn’t Go To The University – Nigeria’s Richest Woman.

Billionaire Folorunsho Alakija said it was not her destiny to have a university degree, she said this while speaking at a Leadership Program in Lagos.

She said:

“If I had the opportunity of going to the university, maybe I would have come out with a second class upper or lower but that didn’t happen; that wasn’t to be my destiny.

“I would have loved to go to the university as we all know that university education is good but some of us who have not gone, it is not the end of the world.”

“Having put my foot in the door, I decided I was not going to turn back.”

“A lot of things have been said about me, some say I sold my way to the top; I remember that the headline of one of the national dailies in the country once said ‘Hairdresser given an oil block’. So I even became a hairdresser, one of the many names I was given.”

Alakija noted that determination was the key in her desire to succeed.

Not everyone that has a degree today can say there are living a comfortable and satisfying life. It’s not every-ones wish to have a degree due to the condition they find theirselves today…

“When you do, people will talk. When you do not do, people will still talk” (Norman Vincent Peale). What do you do? Learn to be yourself. Account of our individual sojourn on earth will be given to God alone life hereafter. Whether we like it or not, God is definitely interested in the affairs of men. Courage and cheers.
