From the staples of the peerless business newspaper in Nigeria, BusinessDay, yours truly has been honoured to receive the Focus Africa award for the little things I have done in the world of technology and business. It is always great to be remembered at home. I was in the village during Christmas, and quickly parents came with our little futures in Ovim, saying “This is your big uncle; listen to him”.
I was moved beyond words, because decades ago, my mother had taken me to a kinsman who returned from the city, saying “He is good in mathematics, and I want him to be like you”.
I accept the Focus Award because I am sure it would inspire many to believe. Thanks BusinessDay, Ayles, and all the organizers.
