How Man Rejected Offers In Shell & Chevron To Live & Work In Ekiti

Please read this STORY!!!

On Sunday 14th January, 2018, a big Uncle, Adekunle Ajayi called on phone to tell me a story:

“My brother, how are you? Am sorry, I know I have offended you but I will pay my fine whenever we see”

I have a good news for you, I am now the CMD of FTH, Ido-Ekiti.“Wow!”, I said.

He continued:

“Its like a miracle to me. I saw an advert in Punch Newspaper last year, calling for application for the position of Chief Medical Director (CMD) of Federal Medical Center, Ido-Ekiti and I applied.

“22 of us, including the Acting CMD applied. However, 18 of us were shortlisted for interview. We sat for a very rigid aptitude, oral and computer tests.

“Alas, the Minister of Health recommended the THREE people with highest mark to Mr. President to pick ONE from.

“Fortunately, I scored the highest MARK but unfortunately, I do not have anyone to lobby for me.

“When I saw the rate at which people were lobbying, I gave up.

“But last week, I got a phone call that I was picked on MERIT. I didn’t lobby anyone, I didn’t call anyone, God did it. I got it on merit.”

What a mighty God we serve!!!!!

I join all lovers of Merit to Congratulate this dutiful, hardworking and Principled Adviser of Mine as he resume today as CMD, Federal Teaching Hospital, Ido-Ekiti.

Meanwhile, Uncle told me a story before he dropped the call:

“I rejected appointments at Shell and Chevron in Lagos to accept an offer in Ado-Ekiti about two decades ago. I also rejected a juicy offer at OAUTH to remain in Ekiti. My instinct told me I will reach the pinnacle of my career in Ekiti and here I am today. I was the youngest among other the applicants”..

Congrats once again, Dr. Adekunle Ajayi, an Ekiti Man that doesn’t take NO for an answer!!!
