Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
A Nigerian man, Nnamdi Onwurah, has said that always trying one’s best and aiming high has a whole lot of benefits.
In a LinkedIn post, the man revealed how he has always had goals to meet at every point of his life. After his WAEC examinations, he just wanted to get into one of the best Nigerian federal universities in the country, a dream achieved.
While studying geology at the University of Ibadan, he hoped to work in an oil company as soon as he was done.

After spending years in the banking sector, the man co-founded companies and invested so much in real estate.
In 2021, he and his friend, Femi Beecroft, made a great step and signed a N4.5 billion (GHc63,419,004.90) Eko Atlantic house project deal.
The man said that they both moved from “two scrawny lads” to people who made very bold moves years later. Nnamdi, however, added that he will still be aiming for the sky as he has not reached his destination.
YEN.com.gh compiled some of the reactions to their success below:
Winifred Adedoyin Owotomo said:

Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that another set of two friends set social media abuzz as they showed that friendship is all about helping each other grow.
In a Twitter post on Tuesday, March 2, one of the friends with the handle @No4troublemaker shared a throwback photo of when they were students at the University of Benin (UNIBEN).
The second snap showed them in Munich, Germany several years later. What is obvious in both photographs was how their skins went from being dark to fair, making them look all fresh.
