Sujimoto Construction Limited – Nigeria’s foremost Luxury Real Estate Developer has given popular Agege bread seller turn model, Olajumoke and her family a luxury accommodation in Lagos and Scholarship with Poise Academy Nigeria – where she will undergo proper training in English Grammar and Communication, and One on One Personality Development Course.
According to the CEO of Sujimoto Construction, Sijibomi Ogundele: “Olajumoke’s grass to grace story is my story. It is the story of my mother who also came to Lagos from Ijebu in search of a better life. Young people should learn from Olajumoke’s experience that hard work is the bedrock of all success and success only happens when preparation meets opportunity. There are no sustainable shortcuts. Without hard work, luck won’t last.”
Olajumoke was not lucky, rather she was prepared and when the opportunity came, she seized it.
Lagos is a land of opportunity with a population of over 21 million people. About 72% of these people are non-indigenes who have left their native land to Lagos, in search of greener pastures because of the opportunities in Lagos. 60% of the Nigerian populations are between the ages of 25 – 40 years old, with about 60% of them unemployed, while another 80% are unable to afford a day meal. The question is how many more Olajumokes are out there, who will leave their comfort zone and find opportunities without trying to blame the economy for their fate? Hard work and tenacity will always win “it” for you. Opportunities are all around us every day but very few like Jumoke seize them.
