“Thank God today, as an unlettered person by western standards, I still supervise people with masters and PhDs who are working in my organisation.
“As a matter of fact, if any of my employees wants to approach me with any project proposal or some kind of memo or presentation, they have to be well-prepared and make sure they did their home work well because they know I will definitely point out any error therein.
“So, Alhamdullillahi, I thank God for his kindness upon me. It may interest you to know that I have never been to any formal school all my life. No teacher of western education can say he or she had taught me how to pronounce the alphabet ‘A’ in my life.
” I simply learnt by listening and associating with people. I am a very committed person when it comes to learning and adapting,”
