For Sijibomi Ogundele; Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Luxury real estate company Sujimoto; he is embedded with too much content with a mastery in the art of delivery. Give it to him; he is one of the few who makes a promise and will stand by it even with a rifle on his head. He showed his oratory and cerebral prowess in the issues of finance, business management, real estate management and entrepreneurial success over the week far-away East Africa, Uganda.

That no one will give you a chair at the table of opportunity, you have to create your our chair.  The old will go”.

Ogundele further harps on the need for every Ugandan youth to also leave behind the idea of impossibility stating that; everything can be achieved if there is passion and the will to achieve success. “What about the young lady raised by a single mother, who found strength in dancing and didn’t allow the challenges of Kawempe stop her from Singing her way to becoming not only the Sheebah of Kampala but a music icon of this nation. Great Assets of Uganda, let me remind you, It doesn’t matter how much you have in your wallet today, or the certificate in your Waldrop, if you dream big and embrace the spirit of possibility, you will see that what God cannot do does not exist.”
