Food For Thought – CEO

Apr 23, 2013 | 0 comments


I received this thought provoking broadcast this morning and I felt I should share it with my readers. Please feel free to comment and let share thought.
Dear CEO, “una don too much o!”. These days that word CEO
and entrepreneur seems to be another name for unemployment!

Not for the egotistical CEO title,  run it right. Be passionate, skilled
with tremendous value and a vision. And then grow, collaborate and let
your business outgrow you as a means to grow our world!

CEO’s should see the big picture.  Our lack of will and corrupt
government has failed us. But its up to your business and us to shake
the GDP of this country. Not this brain dead people in Abuja, they
really can’t.  By what you do, end  poverty simply by growing and
 employing yourself people and not this “one man” business concept we
have as local CEOs.  Not our ego, we need to grow our business, then
people, then the country. Then change becomes easier. Even medically,
you need to be well to donate blood. The strength of this lies on CEOs
to take out wealth from politicians who have it (common sense reason for
poverty amongst wealth). That way you become a brand and  they’d be
forced to either launder or invest it, on us. Its a Robin Hood concept (
Pareto’s- kalder-Hicks theory, robb from the rich to help the poor).
 To do this, we need Nigerian world class brands, Like the Asians did
with Samsung, Honda and Toyota. Just like  Indomie for Indonesia,
 Petrobas for Brazil, Shoprite, DSTV and AMA KIP KIP for SA,  Airtel for
India,  we need your business to join the likes of growing Oando, Glo,
GTbank,  Silverbird for Nigeria. CEO, we don’t need your card,  we need
value, we need  more, more world class institutions by locals like us.

In the words of Obama, “Africa already has too many powerful people, it
doesn’t need that, all it needs are powerful institutions.

Our country needs dreamers, thinkers and doers, people who will build that, #Hexavianspirit.
