“Agencies like EFCC in Nigeria sometimes have brave and gallant law enforcement officers. Unfortunately, as I observed, they’re often let down by their political bosses, and sometimes even by the courts. This can change if activism from the citizenry emerges to support their work.” – Strive Masiyiwa in a post October 7, 2017.
I have the habit of counselling young folks who aspire to excel in business (where I’m completely ignorant) or in the professions (where I played), to always read Strive Masiyiwa. A few years ago I had, in a post, discussed my chance meeting with him about year 2000 and how he made a permanent impression on me. He is probably the African I know who has the largest number of followers on facebook. And I dare say for good reasons I may no longer have anything to gain from him but something tells me the younger folks have.
Yes if you are in my generation and you don’t like Strive’s guts, I should not have any apologies for that. And of course if you disagree with him, that’s perfect and has nothing to do with me.
