I Could Have Ended Up as a Post Master – Fashola

1 Min Read

Minister of Works, Power and Housing, Mr Babatunde Raji Fashola has revealed that he could have ended up as a post master if not for the fact that he was determined to pursue a career in litigation.

While speaking during a group mentoring programme for entrepreneurs organised by Young Business Leaders of Nigeria (YBLN) in Lagos, he explained that after graduating from University of Benin (UNIBEN) and he was unemployed, his father presented him with the opportunity to work with the Nigerian Postal Service (NIPOST), he said he almost took the job but he later realised that he wasn’t interested in pursuing that career line.

He said “I had a different passion and that was being in the courtroom; I therefore had to go for my dream to find a job that would help my career. It took me a while before I could get a job and that meant I was jobless for several months after NYSC.”

He added that “I am happy to see young people doing great things in their various areas of business. The better Nigeria, we hoped for begins with us.”
