Nigeria’s wealthiest woman, Folorunsho Alakija, has disclosed that she did not attend a University, insisting that a formal education is not a requisite for success in life.
Alakija, who is worth $2.6 billion by FORBES estimates, reportedly made the disclosure on Thursday, while addressing students at the University of Lagos during a ceremony to mark the 2014 UN International Youths Day.
“So I am 63 and I am not yet done. So what is your excuse? I never went to a University and I am proud to say so because I don’t think I have done too badly,” she said during the motivational talk.
The Nigerian businesswoman explained to the students that while a University degree is important and can significantly improve one’s prospects in life, hard work and persistence were the most crucial tools for success.
“You do not have to have a university education to be able to make it so count yourselves privileged to have that education as part of the feather in your cap,” Alakija said.
Alakija pursued secretarial studies and fashion design as a young woman in London, and then returned to Nigeria to work as a secretary in a Merchant bank. She subsequently founded Supreme Stitches, a tailoring outfit that catered to upscale clientele including Nigeria’s fashionable former first lady Maryam Babangida.
In 1993, she acquired an oil prospecting license which granted her a lucrative block in Nigeria’s coastal waters. Her company, Famfa Oil, now holds a 60% stake in the oil field. She is also the founder of The Rose of Sharon Foundation, which provides support to orphans and widows.

Last time we were laughing and screaming when Premium Times' Chinenye Ugonna wrote "how to spot a 'fake Abuja big babe' now lets learn how to spot a 'fake Abuja big boy' as written by Premium Times again.
These guys are always well-dressed with flashy cars. Some of them are even from rich homes. You see them looking like a bag of money, meanwhile nothing in their bank accounts.There is nothing wrong with looking good and not having money to back it up. There is only something wrong when you are doing it for packaging.
1. Always with the fake accent:Apparently, this is not exclusive to the babes. The male FABBs use all the accents in the world; British, American and Nigerian accent all muddled up in one. If they are talking to a babe who probably lived in the UK with a British accent, their accent automatically changes just to impress. Please, embrace your Nigerian accent, whether it is an Igbo, Yoruba or Hausa accent, be proud of it. You don’t see an American man trying to talk like a Nigerian.
2. He only dates working girls: This is a highly defining character of the male FABB. They do not date jobless babes. If you don’t have a J -O -B, then it’s onto the next one. They do not want to be bothered about taking care of a babe who’s probably still in school or sharing CV about. That is not in their dictionary of potential girlfriends.
3. He drives the flashiest of flashy cars:Warning: Don’t be deceived, the car belongs to their father or uncle.
4. He always has a political connection: A typical Abuja boy is always related to some politician or influential person. The politicians are always their uncle but hardly ever their father. Sometimes, it could even be a politician they have met once- he becomes their uncle.
5. He is a mummy’s boy: Most of the rich male FABBs live off the wealth of their family who still pay for everything they own. If you know a guy who lives in a very expensive duplex in Maitama but does not have a regular job, check that guy! They probably even get monthly allowance from their parents every month as grown men. Hey, not judging, you do you.
6. He immediately introduces you to his family/friends: Imagine you meet this nice looking guy in Abuja, and before you know it, he has introduced you to his family and friends. In your mind, you are thinking that you are an iyawo (wife in the Yoruba language), not knowing you are girlfriend no. 9.
7. He spontaneously proposes to you after a short period of dating: They tell you that you are a wife material or even propose marriage so they can be living off their new working class babe. You would cook, clean and before you know it, you have turned to their provider. Their food, shelter, and clothing would be taken care of by the working class babe. They start with “Please, borrow me N10, 000, I would pay you back.” Next time, it’s N20, 000 and then it keeps increasing. Of course, the babe will never get her money back. If you are guilty of this, it’s not good o! It should be a joint effort.
8. He only remembers his babe on Thursdays: This is the time to remember all the hook-ups they have forgotten from Monday to Wednesday. They need to get a babe to turn up with during the weekend. If Halima doesn’t respond, Salewa will. After all there are many fishes in the sea.
9. He doesn’t have a proper job: This is not referring to the guys who genuinely work/hustle for their money from Monday to Friday to make ends meet. Thumbs up! This is for the guys who claim they work during the week but people still cannot point a finger on what they do. On Friday, they would be the first to update their status with: “Turn up weekend, TGIF”.
10. He’s always the first to pop bottles in the club: They are always the first to order bottles just to impress. When it’s time to pay, they would remember they have to go to the bathroom. It’s not by force to pop champagne. After popping and being forced to pay, they come home to eat noodles. Bear in mind that the money would have bought you a nice plate of jollof rice and a big fat chicken.So, there you have the Fake Abuja Big Boy, FABB away.

This Is Olu-Ibukun Koye The ECOWAS Diplomat Who Took Ebola Virus ToPortHarcourt.Read the Investigation Here.
A book entitled ``President Goodluck Jonathan: His speeches and Heroic Deeds’’, is set for launch September 4 2014 at Transcorp Hilton, Abuja.
According to a statement by the publisher, Mr Tanu Ejenavwo, the book contains selected speeches of Mr President, reflecting his deep philosophical thoughts on issues of governance,progress and unity of Nigeria.
``The book provides authentic and verifiable information on sectorial growth assessment, as encapsulated in the Transformation Agenda of Jonathan’s administration”, the statement said.
It extolled the achievements of the President and noted the administration’s strong will in growing key economic sectors of the nation.
``Economic sectors have been undergoing market-oriented reforms, while human capital development have been witnessing positive improvements.’’
In the statement, Ejenavwo said he wrote the book for the benefit of present and future generations in the country.
Chairman of the book launch committee, Mr Ahmed Danjuma, said ``the book unveils the methodological disposition of President
Jonathan in handling national issues in an uncommon civility.
``It also divulges the prudency in management of state resources and accountability in allocations for infrastructure while offering
solutions on balancing Nigeria’s social and political conditions.”
President Jonathan is expected to be the Special Guest of Honour while all the state governors and legislators are also expected to grace the occasion.
Pa Benson Adigio-Eseni, the 87-year-old abducted uncle of the former Governor of Bayelsa State, Chief Timipre Sylva, has died in his captors’ den.
He was buried by the kidnappers in a shallow grave at the entrance of Kula community, a border town between Rivers and Bayelsa State.Though the state’s police command is ready to conduct autopsy on the remains to determine the cause of his death, a suspect apprehended by the police explained how the old man died.
The 27-year-old suspect identified as Nelson disclosed that their victim died in the creeks on August 14.Nelson, an indigene of Rofogbene in Burutu local government area of Delta State, said the octogenarian died before they collected N5million ransom from his family.
The suspect who claimed to have completed his secondary school said he was coerced by the leader of the gang to join in the criminality.Identifying their gang leader as Ebino, Nelson said they bought a Turaya phone from Robinson Plaza in Warri, Delta State, which they used to establish contact with their victim’s family and negotiate for ransom.After the deal, Nelson collected N250,000 as his share of the ransom.He, however, said the octogenarian would not have died if the gang leader had listened to their earlier pleas to let him go.Narrating how the old man died, he said: “We begged the leader to release the man because as at that time the family had refused to discuss ransom.“The old man looked sick. At night, while he was eating, he started choking and slumped. We rushed to his aid but he died before we could help him,”
The Special Fraud Unit (SFU) of the Nigerian Police yesterday charged a special assistant to former Defence Minister, Lt. Gen. T. Y. Danjuma (rtd), Mr. Manasseh Obadiah Zorto, before a Lagos federal high court for allegedly defrauding his boss to the tune of about N2 billion.The accused, who was said to be on the run, could not be arraigned before Justice Okon Abang on Friday.When the matter came up, SFU lawyer, Chief Godwin Obla (SAN), told the court that the police were having challenges in bringing the accused to court.He said at the appropriate time, the police would apply for bench warrant for the arrest of the accused, but that the court should give the police more time to arrest him.“My lord, we are in court today so as not to allow the matter to be unattended to. We humbly pray the court to grant us more time to bring the accused to court for arraignment,” Obla said.“For now, we don’t want to apply for bench warrant but we will make more efforts to arrest the accused,” he added.Justice Abang consequently fixed October 2 for arraignment.According to the charge marked FHC/L/221C/14, the accused was said to have fraudulently used his position as an employee of Tita-Kuru Petrochemicals Ltd, T.Y Holdings Ltd and Central Realities Ltd, all companies linked to Danjuma, to steal about N2 billion from the firms.Zorto was said to have used his position as executive director and special assistant, finance and investment to the chairman of the companies (Danjuma) to perpetrate the alleged fraud.In the 19-count charge filed by the SFU, the accused was said to have defrauded the companies about N1.6 billion and $121, 468.
