What Makes Me Happy And How A Boy Told Me He Wants To Meet Me In Heaven – Femi Otedola
Nigerian businessman, Femi Otedola has stated
that all the billions he possesses in this world are
not enough to make him happy.
In a telephone interview with a radio station, the
presenter asked the philanthropist to open up on
what made him a happy man.
Otedola recounted how he felt special and the
happiest person after showing love to some
physically challenged children who were in need
He disclosed the stages of happiness he has
experienced in life and noted that none of these
stages made him happier than the moment he
shared with the physically challenged children he
supported with wheelchairs.
Otedola said; “I have gone through four stages of
happiness in life and finally I understood the
meaning of true happiness. The first stage was to
accumulate wealth and means. But at this stage, I
did not get the happiness I wanted.
“Then came the second stage of collecting valuables
and items. But I realized that the effect of this thing
is also temporary and the luster of valuable things
does not last long. Then came the third stage of
getting big projects. That was when I was holding
95% of the diesel supply in Nigeria and Africa. I was
also the largest vessel owner in Africa and Asia. But
even here I did not get the happiness I had
“The fourth stage was the time a friend of mine
asked me to buy wheelchair for some disabled
children. Just about 200 kids. At the friend’s
request, I immediately bought the wheelchairs. But
the friend insisted that I go with him and hand over
the wheelchairs to the children. I got ready and went
“There I gave these wheelchairs to these children
with my own hands. I saw the strange glow of
happiness on the faces of these children. I saw them
all sitting on the wheelchairs, moving around, and
having fun. It was as if they had arrived at a picnic
spot where they are sharing a jackpot winning.
“I felt real joy inside me. When I decided to leave
one of the kids grabbed my legs. I tried to free my
legs gently but the child stared at my face and held
my legs tightly. I bent down and asked the child: Do
you need something else? The answer this child
gave me not only made me happy but also changed
my attitude to life completely.
This child said: “I want to remember your face so
that when I meet you in heaven, I will be able to
recognize you and thank you once again.”
