From whatever side of the prism one may want to view success in life, it will be incomplete without the broad spectrum of recognition of certain qualities, character and positive mien that makes up the true meaning of success. These are good upbringing, fear of God, empathy, determi-nation, courage, consistency, smart work and loyalty, and proper positioning.

ptly placed in this category of men with the consistent quest for development and greatness is Dr. Temitope Fasoranti. A dynamic young Nigerian who has paid his dues displaying the true quality of consistency and loyalty. To an average close watcher of the Nigerian Economic space, the future holds so much for this man involve in growing the economic base of his endeavours and successfully contributing positively to the financial sector of the Nigerian economy.

For those who may not know, the life of Dr. Fasoranti and his richly growing profile should rekindle hope to the wanning psyche of Nigerian home and abroad that despite the challenges of our highly endowed but visibly mismanaged economy, the days are near for young professionals in the likes of this career banker and creative economic guru to take over the running of the economy through discipline, development and creative management of the nation’s economic landscape.

Without mincing words, the recuperation of any ailing economy requires the ingenuity and sincerity of purpose, the fear of God, the zeal to raise men, away from the acquisitive greed that pervades the Nigerian society. It is however, hopeful to Nigerians across board that with the likes of Dr. Fasorantiwhose upbringing remain clearly based on the virtues of raising humanity, using their God-given prowess, the light remain glowing at the end of the proverbial tunnel for the Nigerian-nation.
