  2. Title: From Machine Boy to Managing Director: The Biography of Felix Matthew Ogbeyewebor Osifo.

    Writer: Hope Eghagha
    Reviewer: Sam Omatseye

    When Professor Hope Eghagha was engaged on the e-book, it seemed like an eternity as a
    result of, within the course of the previous few years, together
    with his distracting time as commissioner in Delta State, our conversations flashed
    often into the topic. It appeared it was a venture of the age of Methuselah.
    Though I by no means ventured to say it, I prayed in non-public earnest that the Almighty God granted the plenitude of double grace.
    The primary grace was that the topic, Mr. Osifo, would get pleasure from longevity
    sufficient. The second grace was that God would give the challenge the velocity of
    an eagle and switch a Methuselah right into a younger
    and bustling David. Put merely, I prayed that Mr.
    Osifo outlasted the e-book venture.

    So, once i picked up a name from Benita Osifo,
    the subject’s daughter, about my function as reviewer, I believed to myself, “at final, the eagle has landed. Because of the Lord on excessive.”

    It would appear, on the floor, like clockwork to evaluation a biographical account
    of a personage like Felix Matthew O Osifo. The reason being that one has
    identified him just about all my life, not less than my grownup life.

    However that, exactly, is why it poses a problem. I’m enjoying
    a double position as interlocutor and witness. Generally the roles collapse and dovetail.

    As one learn from web page to web page, it grew to become clear
    that tasks like this ebook titled, From Machine Boy to Managing Director: the
    Biography of Felix Matthew Ogbeyewebor Osifo, justify why
    the lives and actions of nice males are written. They afford us the chance to play
    amebo into the lives of individuals we all know, or we
    expect we all know. Much more so, into the lives of individuals we all know of however whose public exploits
    arouse a restless and drooling appetite to know.

    Typically, as FMO Osifo, as his pals and colleagues typically consult with him, grew in profile as a company and public success, tales that wound round him did little
    credit score to the toil and dynamism of his early years.
    Due to this ebook, we all know higher. The general public solely is
    aware of of his outward persona, his bodily attributes,
    his guttural voice, his majestic strides, his typically imperial or royal carriage, his guttural voice, or what Felix Ohiwerei calls his “robust laughter,” the charisma of a tireless inspirer, his eyes which
    can be without delay daring and sort, his impeccable sartorial style,
    his air of prosperity with out ostentation, his pious
    dignity, his gregarious grace, his sharp and dissecting intellect, a
    man who concurrently soars and bows, depicting successful that recognises the basis of his route.

    However few know the next. That the identical FMO was a houseboy,
    the identical FMO of the swagger as soon as pushed truck, that the identical
    company large hawked gadgets to maintain physique and soul collectively, that he accompanied his
    father to the farm when he was not toiling at his research.

    He was additionally a motor park assist, he re-baggged cement and labored at constructing websites.

    Professor Eghagha alluded to the psalm by Henry Wadsworth
    Longfellow to display FMO Osifo’s life reminds us that “Lives of nice males all remind us/ we could make our lives sublime.”

    Sure, the start was turbulent. His father was poor.
    His mom, for all her love for the kids, couldn’t do greater than the little that was obtainable.
    However the younger Osifo didn’t restrict himself to the surroundings.
    He accomplished his main schooling and determined, in contrast
    to a few of his contemporaries with ambition, that he was going to chart a path all his personal: that of
    a physician of machines.

    When he informed his mom, she resisted. The advantage of persistence
    shone early in his life. He needed to practice to be like one Amachree who had been gloriously launched on the Feast of Tabernacles in Warri as
    a physician of machines. He wished no different dream. He had seen his function mannequin. Osifo rallied his pals,
    members of the God’s Kingdom Society, together with the president, the late Brother Ebenezer Temisanren Otomewo, to steer the
    mom. She acceded to her son’s request and offered her jewellery
    to pay for his son’s journey and coaching as
    a physician of machines.

    Ambition is like leaping at the hours of darkness.
    The younger man had left dwelling, father, mom, siblings and the safety of
    the unknown for the wild and boisterous unpredictability of the massive, vibrant Babylon that Lagos was believed to be.

    With Amachree and Co., he set out and he outpaced these he met in coaching.
    He additionally put his imagination to work, scraping from his meager sources to make the most
    of a correspondence course. So good was he that when his
    coaching and apprenticeship ended, the proprietor
    of the enterprise didn’t need him to depart. Right here once more, we see the one-mindedness of FMO.
    He joined G. Gottschalk as journey man or technician.
    That was the start of a trajectory up.

    From then the writer tracks how FMO rose. However it occurred with an unswerving devotion. He paid consideration to element and his vitality
    was boundless. Extra importantly, he bested his fellows and
    his bosses seen. Earlier than lengthy, he was authorized for a course within the United Kingdom, this was
    the start of a string of programs and travels that might illuminate his profession for many years.

    Promotions got here, his fortunes improved, and the Osifo who sought free
    accommodation in No. 1Pike Avenue, soared to turn into one of many mainstays
    of the UAC and jewels of company Nigeria.

    A number of factors have to be noticed right here. First, he labored in an ambience of jealousy.
    A humorous scene occurred when his stature intimidated fairly just a
    few of them and somebody planted a fetish abject, or juju,
    in his work place. An undaunted Osifo poured petrol over it and burned it whereas invoking the facility of
    the Holy Bible. The wrongdoer needed to confess.
    Ironically he was Osifo’s senior however he would later function his junior within the workplace.

    Two, he operated in an period of meritocracy in Nigeria’s company world.

    Partly as a result of it was that period when the corporate elite have
    been expatriates, particularly British, and weren’t crimped by the Nigerian penchant
    for ethnic or clannish proclivities.

    He later moved on because the managing director
    of Vono. It was a activity he didn’t need at first. Nevertheless it was a job that examined him, and his good sense triumphed
    over ego. He needed the job as chairman and managing director and that was
    what befitted him.

    This brings out some prime quality of the man.
    He started as a machine boy and dreamt machines.
    However his versatility shone in order that his bosses noticed that he
    was not solely a man of technical virtuosity but additionally a
    supervisor of the primary rank. When he educated abroad he bested his mates.
    He did so at work. So good was he that within the course of
    his profession, he turned a mister Repair-it. That was why he went to GBO and that was why he was requested after his GBO exploits
    to save lots of Vono.

    Now, Vono supplied an fascinating drama. Osifo had lengthy dreamed of proudly owning
    his personal concern, and someday within the 1970’s, he had wished to stop the corporate.

    However associates and his spouse, Beatrice, cautioned him.
    He relented. He noticed a fantastic alternative in Vono.
    When he took over, Vono Worldwide was contemplating shutting down the enterprise till the
    hand of Osifo breathed a brand new and worthwhile life
    into it. The enterprise house owners determined they didn’t wish to promote it
    any extra.

    Osifo finally determined to give up in line together with his
    dream to be on his personal when he turned fifty. The choice shocked everybody at the
    highest. He had so turn into an enormous a part of the UAC success that
    his leaving blindsided the company brass of the corporate.

    Osifo formed Osiquip and confirmed that he may do for himself what he had performed for others.
    Osiquip grew to become a nimble firm, and he had to beat lots of the teething challenges
    of organising an organization.

    However his company life was not with out its chink.
    It was a narrative of false allegation that concerned his chairmanship of
    a financial institution, Royal Service provider Financial institution. The creator tracks with pathos how he
    was accused, how he needed to spend time in detention and went on trial right here in Lagos and Jos.
    The story ends along with his vindication and he needed to shed tears and still have a celebration with associates and church members.

    The opposite a part of his story is his religion. From reviling the church,
    he joined the GKS early and took half in its very early years.
    Lacking on this narrative is the technique of conversion. How did he imbibe the church’s
    clearly completely different prepare of doctrines?
    How did he navigate such distinctive beliefs as Christ has come, not each faithful
    will go to heaven, who’re saints, what’s a soul, the problem
    of trinity, and so on. I’d have wished to learn how the younger Osifo grappled with this universe of doctrines, particularly from his father’s paganism.
    His mom could have needed to wrestle with the identical existential transition.

    Due to his devotion, he grew to become the secretary of the Lagos Department and later the top of the laity worldwide.
    His was a management with out the whiff of
    scandal or profligacy or ostentation or vanity.
    It made him very simple as a job mannequin for a lot of younger, reminiscent
    of myself.

    All by the guide, the assist of his spouse Beatrice shines.
    The courtship and marriage ceremony reads like a fairy tale.
    And she was a constant bower by all his travels and travails.
    As she herself mentioned, she knew how to speak to him.

    I might have needed to learn extra about Beatrice although, particularly
    how her imaginative and prescient of household coincided with the husband’s, with clear anecdotes.
    Additionally, the kids appear to have taken a again seat within the narrative.

    We all know of Benita the Iron Lady, Emmanuel the CEO,
    Ebenezer within the United States, and so forth., however snippets about them as they grew would have enlivened
    this stunning e-book. The writer acknowledged difficulties
    of ferreting some info.

    There are letters that transfer the center. As an illustration we learn the one from Otomewo congratulating the
    younger Osifo when he was promoted foreman. We additionally learn the letters between him
    and Ernest Sonekan. He avails us his motion plan to show Vono round
    after his successes at BEAM and GBO, successes he attributes to the divine steerage and mercies.

    From Machine Boy to Managing Director is a keepsake.
    Professor Eghagha weaves the tales with an eye fixed for particulars, and it’s written with curiosity, analytical
    aptitude, warmth, compassion and an enthralling simplicity.
    It lacks a professorial pomposity or ebook tedium.
    His explicit eye on the trajectory of the topic up the company ladder bears a
    lot element and generally picturesque fascination that the reader typically feels
    transported in time.

    We additionally benefit from the philosophical quotes that assist situate sections and chapters of the story.
    Osifo’s reliance on God bears the frequent quotes from the Bible.
    One quote that sums up his life is that this: “Seest thou a man diligent in his enterprise. He shall stand earlier than kings and never earlier than imply males.”
    Proverbs 22:29.
