A Nigerian banker has shocked many after he revealed he dumped banking for plumbing.
According to Bonire Abdulrahman Femi, growing up, he had a dream to become an Army General. He was so passionate about this that he refused to write the university entry exam (Jamb) when he was passing out of secondary school. This, to him, was to make his parent give his ambition their all.
However, after several failed attempts to secure an admission into the Nigerian Defense Academy (NDA), he began to realize that he has to have several other realistic plans – like become a successful
entrepreneur. But, the big question was, how was he going to achieve this feat?
According to Bonire, he let go of his military ambition and turned to plumbing which his father taught him.
However, after several failed attempts to repackage and promote his plumbing business, shortly after graduating from the university, Femi gave in to the challenges of paying the bills and took up a day job with an insurance company and a bank in quick succession.
But, all along, his dreams of building his own business would not let him be.
Eventually, he resigned from the bank and went back fully into his plumbing business.
Although he might still be having some other great business plans up his sleeves, as far as plumbing is concerned, Bonire says he’s living his dreams.
