Nigerian business magnate, Folorunsho Alakija has said her destiny is not to attend the university. She made the statement on Thursday at the ongoing Excellence in Leadership program, an annual event organised by Daystar Christian Centre, Ikeja, Lagos.

“If I had the opportunity of going to the university, maybe I would have come out with a second class upper or lower but that didn’t happen; that wasn’t to be my destiny,” she said.

“I would have loved to go to the university as we all know that university education is good but some of us who have not gone, it is not the end of the world.

Alakija said she was able to attain her present position because she was determined and ready to pay the price that came with all the challenges she’s had to surmount.

“Having put my foot in the door, I decided I was not going to turn back”, she said to highlight her determination.

Alakija says she is a product of hard work, sweat, tears, and tenacity, stressing that she’s not an overnight success.

“A lot of things have been said about me, some say I sold my way to the top; I remember that the headline of one of the national dailies in the country once said ‘Hairdresser given an oil block’. So I even became a hairdresser, one of the many names I was given.”

She encouraged participants at the conference to believe in themselves.
