Corps member, Matthew Teru while handing over his Community Development Service (CDS) project for the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) on Thursday, says he dreams of beating Dangote's record in the coming years if only he continues making impact.
Teru, a graduate of Zoology from the University of Jos, gave classroom facilities to two community schools in Akamkpa Local Government Area of Cross River where he was posted for his primary assignment.
While speaking with VANGUARD on phone, the corps member made known his plans to build a formidable business across states in Nigeria.
"I would like to further my education but most importantly, I dream of building my business to at least six states across Nigeria."
When asked if he could beat Dangote’s record as the richest man in the nearest future, he said: "(Laughs)… it’s good to be rich because affluence makes it easier to reach out to more souls, and in turn, helps to transform the society at large. However, it’s not competition.
"What’s the essence of beating Dangote’s record and not make much impact? Well, nothing is impossible and I’m not sure if Dangote knew he was going to be rich when he started. I intend to run an ever increasing/expanding business, who knows where it will stop?"
He urged the youths to be good ambassadors of Nigeria in their respective fields, adding that selfless service is sine qua non to the growth of the country.
