Nigerian writer, Moshood Adebayo, has opined that people should stop coming ladies in their neighborhood to World Trade Organization DG, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala.

According to the writer, Ngozi came from a rich background and her parents were both professors so the access to education and connection in high places was easy to come by for her.

She also opined that most times, people don’t become “riffraffs” just because they were lazy but they instead become a product of the environment they were raised in.

Her post reads ;

Stop comparing ladies in your neighborhood to Ngozi Okonjo-Iwealla. Her parent were both professors and her dad a Royal Majesty. They’ve always been rich. She was just 22 when she finished from Harvard University. You know how expensive Harvard is, right? She was 27 when she
earned her PhD, from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Someone who worked at World Bank for 25 years, rising to the position of Managing Director. No, it would be unfair to measure your seriousness in life by that woman’s standard. Her brilliance is motivating, but her circumstances are different,
If you’ve also had the same parent, you would’ve probably done better.

Most times, people aren’t reduced to riffraff and socioeconomic passersby because they’re lazy or stupid. Poverty and powerlessness are just merciless conditioners, that’s all. When you don’t have money, there’s not so much you could do, in the way of chasing dreams.

Your exposure level would be low, and when it’s low, your ambitions would be accordingly small irrespective of how big your dreams may be. Now, when someone with exposure and big ambitions sees you, he sees someone who isn’t serious enough nor brilliant enough but you are!

You’re a royal material only raised in the culture of slaves. To be continued..

If you’ve also had the same parent, you would’ve probably done better.
