Read the amazing story of a former banker now living his dream as a plumber (Photos)

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.

I no longer have to get stuck to the same monotonous routine job every single day the way it used to be. I now enjoy what I do and do what I enjoy. Do you? If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking don’t settle. And like every other thing that matter to the heart, you’ll know when you find it

The world is awaiting your success story. That small tiny idea in your head could make all the difference, so, let it out. Thinking you’ll be doing that soon? Come on! You’d better get started. You’ve only got today.

You will only get lucky when your preparedness meets an opportunity. So go get started right now!

Pastor Bugingo said that the lines talking about the Fasting and Lent, in general, were erased and that the word “ Holy Ghost ” appears a whopping 99 times yet the word “Holy Spirit” appears only seven times.

CBN to Sustain Forex Intervention, Releases Fresh $418m

The apex bank of Nigeria has moved to boost the value of the naira in the local market by pumping more forex into the economy.
The Central Bank of Nigeria on Sunday vowed to sustain its intervention in the foreign exchange market to ensure liquidity in that segment of the financial sector.
The Acting Director, Corporate Communications, CBN, Mr. Isaac Okorafor, stated this in a statement issued in Abuja.
He said as part of its determination to make forex available to genuine users, the apex bank on Friday auctioned the sum of $418m at the retail segment at the rate of N310 to a dollar.
He gave the sectors of the economy that benefitted from the intervention as aviation, agriculture, petroleum and raw materials/machineries.
The statement  read in part, “In its avowed determination to ensure ample supply of foreign exchange liquidity in the market, the Central Bank of Nigeria on Friday, 7th of April, 2017 auctioned the sum of $418m at a marginal rate of N310/$.
 
“This was in addition to the sum of $350m sold as wholesale auction during the week. In the weeks ahead, the CBN will sustain its intervention through the sale of foreign exchange to all segments of the market.”
The statement said the CBN would sell short-tenured forwards of seven-day to 30-day maturity to meet the demand of manufacturers and all other foreign exchange users.
The apex bank said the injection of foreign exchange into the market should reassure all users of its determination to continue to meet all legitimate forex demand in the market.
It added that the intervention was part of measures to achieve exchange rate stability in the financial market.
