MTN came to Nigeria at a time
when nobody wanted to
invest in Nigeria, at a time
when Nigerians did not have
phones. Even Zenith Bank
refused to lend MTN cash to
operate, UBA rejected MTN’s
offer - but today see the
difference. Millions of
Nigerians, and Africans have
cell phones and many use
MTN! And, we all know the
story of the only civilian
unelected President in Nigeria
- Goodluck Jonathan.
We know how people said he
was not going to be
President, they even made
him acting President. Today
the rest is history!
What about Cowbell? When
they came to Nigeria, they
made milk in a sachet. Peak
laughed at them - they said
Cowbell was milk for the poor
and they were right! 3 million
poor people could afford N10
a day for a sachet of milk.
Do the math - 3 million people
buying milk at N10.00- that
was N30million every single
day. In a month they grossed
N900million (almost N1billion).
Even Peak have had to make
sachet milk in order to
survive in the market.
So what have people told
you? What have they said
you cannot do, that you are
not qualified to do, or for
that matter do not have the
experience to do? They told
Cowbell, they told Goodluck,
they told MTN, but today the
story has changed.
Success is not about where
you graduated from, but
what graduates from you!
Keep the spirit!
