HOW HAVE YOU EMPOWER NIGERIANS SO FAR?
My workers are mostly Nigerians, and i have staff over 150 Nigerians who some now happen to big boys and millionaires, some are in Australia ,japan, Canada, like they say the happiness of a leader is to see his followers grow, i tell you some even do better than me because of the foundation i laid and also their good services made them who they are, have also empower ladys who are ready to stand fit in life,
WAS THERE EVER A RECORD OF LOST IN THE PROCESS OF SHIPPING?
No never,there was never a time we have had problem with our ship or lost or goods on water on the process of shipping to Africa.the patients here is the delay because it's takes 30days to arrive in african..and when it arrives the goods are kept in my warehouse in nigeria and people do come to buy from there and to those I help in shipping their goods they go get theirs or the agents helps in the distribution to their various locations..I have boys all over who are working for me.
ABOUT YOUR DATOSHIP HOW COME ABOUT IT?
Oh , the news came to me all of a sudden, I wasn't expecting it!
I ACTUALLY THOUGHT YOU APPLIED FOR IT? BECAUSE DATOS ARE COMMON IN MY HEARING!
No it was based on recommendation , I will say times when I heard of Datoship I marvel ever did I knew it will some day fall to me, I only live in my world of business,buying and selling, if applying for Datoship like you said is possible it means so many Africans would have gotten it in bulk, most Africans knows the importance of Datoship.
thats why some make it a name, not because is sweet but because its a wish , and it comes with honour, and honour to a humble person who have contributed in one way or the other to malaysia as a country, the only thing possible is the celebration that comes with it just like the party we throw getting a cheiftaincy title, I will say am more malaysian than nigerian, because I have lived in Malaysia than Nigeria,I understand the culture,married here and fluents Malay, Cantonese, Tamil, e.t.c. as a Dato there are things I can do and things I cannot because the right kind of life is expected from me especially now that i am privileged.
There is an adage that said if a woman is still living with her husband means her husband is good, I believe you know what I mean, Malaysia is a land of settlement if you can define yourself,
WHAT IS YOUR ADVICE FOR NIGERIANS IN THE COUNTRY?
most at times Nigerians who make money will send their money home instead of investing in the country, I wonder how someone who stays one month in Nigeria will buy a big car and park the car for a long time before use, you live here more the things most of us do back home is to be done here, why sending money home when we can actually invest in the country, it's actually a low mentality,
Having documents or not you can actually make it,it all depends on you and what you want, not having a visa is not an excuse, is for the lazy ones, if the government sees what you do and they are amazed there won't be a recording of raid cases, because you pay tax,and you contribute to the economic growth,
No man will tell you to take honey from his mouth if given honey. if we can actually invest our money and time here I tell you we shall all be happy, we should stop sending money home and invest here, let's give the locals a positive impression with this we shall portrait a good picture,
Business comes with patients,when you know your income you can't spend more than it, just like my shipping to Africa,it takes 30days I am patient,it's my goods and I know my profit will come which after smiles follow. Africans should invest in malaysia.
