He recently had his say via his social media page, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, he and his wife made a tough decision to put everything he had into setting up the company, and for the first two years or more he didn’t earn a salary, so all the money they made went back into the company.
He added that his wife was a registrar at University of Lagos at the time, and when things turned out tough for them, his woman simply proved herself to be tougher.
His words, “Starting Sahara many years ago, my wife and I made a tough decision to put everything I had at the time into setting up the company. For the first 2 years or more, I didn’t earn a salary, and all the money we managed to make went back into the company.”
“My wife, @sylvie6000 was a registrar at the University of Lagos in LUTH at the time. I remember we had a toddler, my son, to cater for, and I had to be in Port-Harcourt for long periods during those 2 years.”
“Those were some tough years, but my wife proved herself to be tougher. Sahara is successful today because of the sacrifice she made back then. She supported me so much that she held the home, put food on the table, paid our rent, all with her salary for more than 2 years.”
“Covering for me like she did, gave me the confidence and clarity of mind to focus and build Sahara. Today, if you see her enjoying the fruit of her labour, please don’t be jealous, she actually worked for it, and paid a price for it; Covering for me like she did, gave me the confidence and clarity of mind to focus and build Sahara.”
“Today, if you see her enjoying the fruit of her labour, please don’t be jealous, she actually worked for it, and paid a price for it; the price of standing by me, believing in me when I needed her the most. Till this moment, she still stands by me, supporting me all the way, especially since I made the decision to climb this political mountain.”
“To my amazing and outstanding wife, Sylvia Cole, medical doctor extraordinaire, wife of a special class, beauty with brains, exceptional woman! This is a small note to say, THANK YOU! I love you.”
