Olusegun Obasanjo receives customized perfume in Abuja.

The ex president visited Sapphire showroom in Abuja to receive his customized perfume – making him the third President to use a Sapphire Scents Bespoke after General Abdulsalam Abubakar and Flt Lt. Jerry Rawlings former President of Ghana.

Read what Adewale Aladejana, shared on Facebook after the encounter.

The bible says in Proverbs 22:1 (NLT)

Choose a good reputation over great riches; being held in high esteem is better than silver or gold.

After we presented the Sapphire Scents Bespoke to Chief Olusegun Obasanjo yesterday, I thought I should also mention to him that he appointed my father as a federal commissioner at the Revenue Mobilization Allocation and Fiscal Commission that was the post my father held till he died in 2010. Baba looked at me and with a smile on his face he said “oh, Aladejana is your father?”Baba became much more friendly and began to ask questions “how is sales? Is the business moving? ” He began to joke with my wife as well, he knew that we were from noble stock.

I learnt a lifelong lesson: one of the biggest investment you can give your children is a good name! My father died 7 years ago but his name still gladdened a king’s heart. Whatever you are doing now think of tomorrow, will your name produce favor or hatred for your children in the future?

John D Rockefeller the richest man who ever lived after Solomon said “the best capital a young man can have is a good name “. Protect your name, its all your children will have to invest and do business with after you are gone.

Receive wisdom in Jesus name.
