Are we the turning point generation?

May 17, 2014

This is the first time I have cared enough to write a blurb. Why? Chude. I met him for the first time at the famous EnoughisEnough rally in Abuja and found out I had known him all along. This was the boss , but he acted just like everyone else. Always calm perhaps because he understands that the hardest and most important time is the preparation before getting to the ring!

With every new initiative and dream he’s birthed, I see the same qualities I noticed that first time. This man is not a joke! He knows where he’s going and he is focused in getting there. Chude is an endangered specie! I understand what that means deeply when I meet people like Chude Jideonwo. I hope Africa will not waste this gift.
