The Nigerian man on the list is a very smart man . He’s into helicopter charter and shuttle. That kind of business he’s bound to mix and mingle with the super rich, affluent and foreigner, thereby making cool connections and expanding into other kind of businesses.

Your products and the class of customers that patronize you sometimes shape your future.

About 15 plus years ago I was an errand boy for someone who work at the British embassy. He’s into underground visa moves but doesn’t want to be the one to meet people face to face just to protect his job. So he does the talking on the phone and when it comes to money he trusted me to handle it with clients documentation and information exchange. (Learned a lot from him)

I can not imagined how many super rich Nigerian I met in the process. Bank executives, high rank military men , state executives , big time politicians etc. Most of the men want to collect visa for their girlfriends so they can take her with them on London vacation. They don’t have problem getting a visa but the girlfriend does therefore they needed someone with deeper knowledge and guarantee. Some women needed visa for their nanny , their mother and some for their secret toy boy etc.

A bank director needed for his mother in-law and about 3 in-laws who were refused before, my man gave them assurances he’s the best , I went to directors house to pick up the in-laws passport and documents. I nearly fainted when I saw powerful documents from the director. I got home, made copies of the Uk invitation letter to include my name, inserted my name in the directors letter to the embassy, kept 2 of his powerful bank statements for my self got a different drop box envelope include my international passport, include a fake student ID card and fake letter from school. Submitted the application Dropbox and after 1 week 2 years visa was on my passport and when I went to collect the other ones they were all granted. I simply kept this to myself.

Please don’t ask for this connection, my man moved to USA years back .

They didn’t get there by working hard. They got there by taking risk and being creative. Truck pushers work hard

Anybody notice it's only the Nigerian guy they didn't estimate his fortune. It's no coincidence, if the guy didn't share the info, he knows what he's doing.

Let all Nigerian youth note:
As the man completed his M.Sc. his university gave him money that he invested wisely in Helicopter chapter business!? (Did I read it well?)

No one gave me any money to invest after my own master's degree, instead, I was busy repaying back the loan I took to complete my M.Sc project

Lesson:
Opportunities for Success in Life isn't shared equally: do your best and never Crucify yourself over opportunities you never had.
