Why Ignore An Achiever Like AYODELE And Celebrate OLAJUMOKE, Freeze Writes

Here’s what OAP Freeze penned down
about the much talked about Olajumoke and the less talked about Ayodele who
broke a record in UNILAG for the first time since the school came into existence.

When are Nigerians going to
celebrate real achievements? On the left is Mr. Ayodele Daniel Dada the first
Nigerian to finish university with a perfect CGPA of 5.0 and on the left is
Mrs. Olajumoke Orisaguna a ‘former’ bread seller.
Before Ayodele, no one had ‘EVER’
finished with a perfect CGPA in UNILAG!!! Since it was established in 1962, he
made history by becoming the first to achieve such a commendable feat!
Now, so many questions come to
mind. How come my dear friend Kunbi of ‘April with Kunbi’ hasn’t styled him or
recommended him for styling? How come CNN hasn’t done a story on him? How come
his life isn’t documented on blogs daily? How come he isn’t a brand ambassador
for any product? The questions are ceaseless. Ciara put up a post of an equally
beautiful traffic hawker selling some type of fruit yesterday and she was
described, in Ciara’s own words as ‘beautiful and talented’. If these two
‘hawker beauties’ were discovered less than 2 months apart, it means that
beautiful girls that hawk commodities aren’t in short supply in Lagos. While
people who finish with with a 5.0 CGPA are almost non existent! It took 54
years to produce the first one!

While Olajumoke and this other lady
are rough stones that could be polished to achieve a lustrous shine, Ayodele is
a true jewel, a rare yellow diamond in its truest and purest form. Let’s not
let our ‘poverty mentality’, that makes things of lesser importance seem valuable,
cloud our judgement. I have no objection to polishing stones to bring out their
shine, but please let’s not do it at the expense of gems of inestimable value!
The outcome of our future depends largely on ‘what’ or ‘whom’ we invest in. If
Japan, Switzerland or America invested their time and money in pretty bread
sellers, we won’t have the brains behind their automotive, aeronautic,
horological or financial achievements today. I’m not saying we shouldn’t
celebrate Olajumoke o! Before people call me a hater but like hell we must
celebrate Ayodele first! Just my thought on a Saturday evening~FRZ
