It was more difficult that my dad at that time didn’t understand we were watching and learning from every of his steps and actions towards my mum and my siblings. I did not experience anything called fatherly love as a child growing up because of my dad’s inhumane way of raising us. I will rather run for my life when he is coming back from work or travels rather than jumping into his arms. My dad has since changed to a better and more loving father after becoming a Christian and our relationship has gotten better. However the impact of his style of raising still triggers me as an adult and a parent myself and I have since promised to be a better dad to my daughters and son and to every child that comes my way in life. The loss of my younger brother in January 2016 due to negligence on the part of my dad and the unfortunate health system in Nigeria further strengthened my determination to share my story with the hope that it will inspire other parents and young generation coming up.
I will love to come speak at your event, share my story and experience as well as motivate the young generation that whatever they dream of is possible and not ever let their environment or upbringing define them.
