Today, I accompanied my friend and business partner, Chief Dr Innocent Chukwuma (OFR) to Bells University of Technology, Lagos (owned by our former president – General Olusegun Obasanjo (Rtd))where he was awarded an honourary doctorate degree. This is his 8th award from local and international institutions. For someone who did not have a formal education he has done very well. As his citation was read, it was obvious that he truly earned this award.
I wonder if he would have been able to set up so many industries and carve out a niche for himself in Commerce and Industry if he had the opportunity to go through the so called formal educational system.
Maybe we should allow our children to attend Technical and Vocational Colleges, take NABTEB exams, go to Polytechnics, be self-employed, etc. You never know. They may end up with more doctorate degrees than their peers. In the worst case scenario, they will at least be rich and self-sufficient. At the end of the day it is about competence for success. Chief Dr Innocent Chukwuma is an example. A very good one.
Innoson Kiara Academy will partner with Bells University to produce more people like him.
