Popular Nigerian Lawyer, Adetola has opined that some people become wealthy and successful by sheer luck, not as a result of hard work.
Adetola, in a post he shared on his official Twitter page, stated that people undermine the role chance plays in people’s life.
Speaking further, he asserted that people are not always poor because of laziness either, because other factors like chance affect the way people’s life turn out.
“Not all wealth and success is the direct result of hard work. Chance has a huge role to play in how people’s lives turn out. Poverty is not always due to laziness either. Too many people underestimate the randomness of chance in how people’s lives turn out.”
