My Experience With Edward Onoja in the Bank today
Today I was privileged to accompany His Excellency , Edward David Onoja , Deputy Governor , Kogi State to the Bank where he carried out some transactions .
What struck me the most was when his cheque book was brought to him and he told me a story of how 20years ago in JOS, he also used to give customers their cheque books as customer information service officer , Guaranty Trust Bank, Million’s Quarters , Jos -Plateau State, a desk he believes is the most tasking and complex to handle in the banking system.
He added 1year and 11months after resuming on that desk,, he had gone through the ranks of Cash Officer/Teller Captain, vault Custodian, Back Up to an Operations Manager and then elevated to Full Operations Manager at the Markudi branch of GTB, a branch he set up and where Fate and Destiny crossed his path with his present Boss and Siamese twin brother, Alhaji Yahaya Bello .
He concluded saying ,Lord Bishop, we did not just fall from the sky, we learnt the ropes and grew through the ranks.
Lesson 1: Don’t allow your current situation put your BACK on the GROUND. The future is too BRIGHT and no devil can stop YOU.
Lesson 2: Never lose memory of where you are coming from, it will help you appreciate where God has brought you to.
