WARNING: This article is a very long one but I advise you to read to the end because I am about to share a secret to reduce the unemployment rate in Africa and make wealth creation so cheap that a child can practice.
“A man’s life is shaped by the information (words and images) he receives from his environment and by his interpretation. The former contributes ten percent and the later contributes ninety percent” John O. Okotie
The educational system of Africa is bad. It has produced more slaves than free men. I knew this since I was a kid but I wasn’t bold to say it because I had no evidence to show and I had no better idea to offer. I remember that I begged a particular church, two years ago, to have fifteen minutes with their teenagers to share these awesome thoughts but they refused. You know how painful that can be?
Instead of allowing that kill my dream, I was more determined to succeed. The best form of revenge is success. I looked at the person they invited to speak for that program, he was a guy like men, just two years older. “What’s the difference between me and the this guy?” I asked myself as I stood in my mental laboratory.
After much thinking, the answer came out… INFLUENCE. I started doing a deep research on this guy and I saw that we had the same mindset. We were born in the same month and our birthday was slightly different, a difference of few days. Last year, he was a keynote speaker in the program, THE PLATFORM. His name is IYANUOLUWA ABOYEJI. This guy is amazing and I hope to meet him soon so we yan business.
Back to the matter.
Right from childhood, I have repeatedly told myself that I wouldn’t work for anybody, chiefly because I was a very lazy child. Too lazy to do hard work and what scared me away from working for somebody is the number of hours, days, weeks… I have to give to work just be earn.
Was there another route to wealth? My parents, like every other African parent, made me believe there was no other way. “My Son, Go to school, Get Good grades and Go work in an ESTABLISHED COMPANY with your CERTIFICATE.” These were the words of a caring mother. This is what I have themed the 3GIF MODEL OF EDUCATION. (This article will surely shake the table but am ready for the effect.)
But I had a better plan. I loved business right from childhood. I did business every Sunday in church. I had a pure water business already. If you know you know. I wanted to own the system. I wanted to create jobs. I wanted to use my mind to work, instead of my brain or hand. I became THE PRODIGALIST. I wanted to experience the outside world.
The two books I read that became the foundation for the life I wanted was THINK BIG BY BEN CARSON & RICH DAD POOR DAD BY ROBERT KIYOSAKI. If you haven’t read these books, you are sleeping on a bicycle. One told me about EDUCATION, the other talked about FINANCIAL INTELLIGENCE. I wanted to be rich but not by working for someone.
Dear reader, how many parents advise their kids to Go to school, Get good grades, Go start up a company or be a key player in a EMBRYONIC company? This is what I have themed the 3GIF MODEL OF EDUCATION, this is the foundation of an aspect of my brand, Pojomatics International, a personality development brand geared at rebranding information to trigger mind reorientation for national and global change.
So, my withdrawal from UNIBEN was my liberation. If I had graduated from UNIBEN, I would have being useless and unfulfilled. When I got admitted into FUPRE, I had a better vision which was the GPI VISION…To be continued.

Yesterday, in the program, FINANCIAL INTELLIGENCE, at THE LIFTING CHURCH, Pastor Rume Daniels recommended a book I would get as soon as possible, THE JEWISH PHENOMENON. (Biko, if you have it, I will be glad to come get it and read.)
As Pastor Rume spoke, I was in tears. At some points, I stood up. I shouted… If only youths and teens and children would hear things like this regularly. The church is supposed to be THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD. The church is supposed to be the centre of power.
Elijah was a father to the president of his time. The church has lost it. Am very sorry to say this. We have focused too much of the devil. We have focused too much on Lord-gimme kind of prayers.
MY PEOPLE ARE DESTROYED BECAUSE OF LACK OF KNOWLEDGE… IT IS TIME FOR THE CHURCH TO RISE UP AND TAKE OUR POSITION IN THE SOCIETY. IT IS TIME FOR AFRICA TO USE HER MIND TO RESTRUCTURE THINGS.
My plan was to go to the corporate world with my mahd ideas of business deployment, legacy creation, Influence… My brand, Pojomatics International, will be starting training for the young ones.
Schools, Churches, radio stations, especially in Delta State should start thinking. Lagos is the centre of excellence because they celebrate personal development and innovative ideas. How many churches organizes program to develop the mind? Rom. 12:2, Prov. 23:7.
I am not criticizing the church, please get my point. It’s time for a STEP UP. POJOMATICS INTERNATIONAL IS THEREFORE THE SOLUTION TO THE MENTALITY PROBLEM OF AFRICAN YOUTHS.
I am launching out something in JUNE.
