I called them the high priests of Nigeria’s economy. The petroleum explorationists in Nigeria are at the zenith of making sure Nigeria runs. They discover oil and if they do not, other energy professionals will freeze. So, in the grand scheme of alpha, they are the high priests who seek the face of the deity of foreign reserves in our nation. So, it was evidently emotional to be honoured by these special people with the GMD of NNPC, Mele Kolo Kyari, and industry legends from Shell, Chevron, Mobile, etc in attendance.
My mother gave me a secret in primary school: “if people say your eyes are big, tell them it helps you to see mathematics better”. With that answer, mocking or bullying stopped because magically my eyes became the right size as they could “see” mathematics very well. To the high priests in the oil industry, we are waiting to see abundance in all homes in Nigeria. Thank you all for the honour.
