On Business Expansion in Africa
 “Let me tell you one secret today and I have not told anybody this; you know when I opened my first shop outside Nigeria in Accra, I took a risk, I withdrew all the money I had in my account, I changed it into dollars and moved into the country. When I came back I was broke. The same thing in Kenya, when I opened Kenya outlet I was broke.
Each time I open any outlet outside Nigeria, I go broke because I have to take all I have in my account to open a shop across the boarder; so, no godfather, no capital, no structure except God the father”

On the usage of Antique Car
“I got that car from Germany through a friend of mine who said I should furnish him with my email details and when I sent it to him he forwarded the photograph to me. A white man who wanted to sell the car as an antique was approached. And we talked over it and the money was paid and the car was shipped down to Nigeria. The car was almost going into a museum as an antique but we made the purchase and today it amuses everyone that we can still be driving such a car in this age and season”.

The Encouragement of an African Statesman
The former Ghanaian president John Kuffor told me something. He said “Mudi, what you have done is great, you have done well. You came into this country as a Nigerian and you opened an outlet here, it takes high level of risk”. He said we all have twenty four hours but it is how you manage your twenty four hours that matters”.
