Princess Toyin Kolade...The Consumate Business Woman

You are here today in Ode-Aye in Okitipupa LGA on Ondo State to mourn with the Tibetans who celebrated the life of their mother Mama Funmilayo Maria Tibetan. What do you have to say about the Tibetan family of Ode-Aye?
The Tibetans have proved to the world that their parents indeed left behind a good legacy. This is the best party of the month of November 2015 and I am very delighted to have attended this event. Both Prophet Marcus Tibetan and his brother Colonel Firopo Tibetan and their two sisters have done more than enough to showcase the kind of training and discipline their parent instilled in them. My prayer is that after this funeral, God will be with them and guide them well.

What does the celebration of the life of Mama Maria Funmilayo Tibetan tell you about motherhood?
Of course as a mother myself it makes me very proud and all you can see in today’s celebration is a reflection of great motherhood. Mama trained her children to be disciplined, courageous and successful in life and as you know she passed away at 80 which is enough sign and divine commendation that Mama was a Godly woman and it also shows that Mama was able to enjoy her children before she passed to higher glory. I am praying that I will be 80 as well or even more than 80 to enjoy my own children as well and to see my children and grand children succeed if Jesus’ Second coming tarries.

As a top Nigerian business woman, how would you describe the economy under President Muhammad Buhari?
Well the government is new but as you can see, the economy is very dull because of the falling of our foreign exchange market, right now you cannot operate a forex economy because banks are not allowed to open domiciliary accounts, this is really affecting our business and it is equally telling on the economy. Well, you cannot blame President Buhari because he is on a reform drive and we are all witnesses to issues of how the economy was pummeled in the last administration, right now if you want to transact a business now and you open an LC in the bank and you request for dollars, before you can get paid it takes as long as two months or thereabout and if you fail to pay your suppliers within the stipulated period, you wont get your bill of laden and your consignment will bill up on demurrage. It is a very, very big challenge and my prayer is that the New Year 2016 will usher in new tidings.

I believe with the team of new ministers and a more robust 2016 budget, things will take a new shape. But I am using this medium to plead to the government, to kindly help us re-work that policy on domiciliary account because that is the only way we can transact our business with our foreign partners, that is  for people like us who do business around. Today, Dollar is doing N242, how do we cope? How do we sell?; at how much gain or wealth margin? The economy is equally affecting the ordinary people because we are all in same boat; they earn their living from this economy. If the employer cannot do business to enable him or her pay the employee, what do you think would happen? So, like I said, we cannot blame President Muhammad Buhari, we can only hope and pray for him that he succeed with his vision of a new Nigeria. He needs to fast-track the economic reforms

Do you think President Buhari has been able to fulfill the 35% affirmative act by appointing enough women in his cabinet?
I will first say what our men can do, our women folk can equally do better. Women are good managers of resources and we don’t chase frivolities, we are managers from the cradle to the height of humanity. I believe if more women are given chance to run things in a system, it will augur well for such system and I believe President Buhari is looking in that direction. So far, so good, I believe the women in his cabinet will spring surprises.

“There are some people in our society who are billionaires but cannot offer you a naira of their money but I thank God for the rare knowledge of giving. Once God gives you the knowledge and wisdom of giving, you can never lack again”

The Renowned Prophet shares his joy with Princess Toyin Kolade

Do you have the intention to go into politics; a lot of people see a prospect in you as a vocal lady?
For now I can’t go for politics but if God ask me to go in I will go but for now, I will only pray for our politicians and help the nation develop in the economic area. All of us can never play the same game, we can’t all be politicians, some of us must be able to aide the policies of the politicians by giving jobs and giving the economy the desired result of socio-economic proficiency but I will never say never, if God says I should go and serve people through politics I will go in.

Princess Toyin Kolade to Asabeafrika...'I cannot Play Politics now except God wants me to be there'

You are seen as one of the richest and well to do women in Nigeria, how rich is Princess Toyin Kolade?
I really thank God for his blessings in my life, when God blesses you and you use that wealth to bless people your wealth will always be renewed. There are some people in our society who are billionaires but cannot offer you a naira of their money but I thank God for the rare knowledge of giving. Once God gives you the knowledge and wisdom of giving, you can never lack again. The key to opening riches is giving. I believe privileged people should help creative people and that is the biggest doctrine God gave man but unfortunately we are not up to the task of giving because of greed. Giving is living and living is giving. So, I won’t say I am so rich but I am rich through my faith in Christ Jesus. I am rich because I run by the rule of giving. I am happy. 

“The tire came towards us ferociously and nearly hit our car but miraculously this same tire spanned back and rolled fast into the bush.  You know when you drive a car, it become so light. This car (Her Hummer Jeep) is very light; if the tire had hit us, it could have become a major disaster”.

What is your philosophy of life?
My philosophy is simple, believe in God. I believe He is the one that can do everything and I don’t have any other view against that. It is only God that can liberate you from challenges, He is the only one that can make you successful and can also guide you; like when we were coming now, there was a trailer accident, we bless God, this particular trailer coming from the other side of the road, two big tires from the rear suddenly jumped off and one of the tires rolled towards my car which was on motion in the opposite direction. The tire came towards us ferociously and nearly hit our car but miraculously this same tire spanned back and rolled fast into the bush.  You know when you drive a car, it become so light. This car (Her Hummer Jeep) is very light; if the tire had hit us, it could have become a major disaster. But you see when you serve God and you don’t have a bad intention in your heart towards people and you didn’t do any bad thing to any one or wish anyone evil, no evil will be your portion. So, for me, my philosophy is total belief in God Almighty through the manifestation of Christ Jesus. I advice everyone reading this piece to accept Him and make Him your Lord and Savior, if you have not accepted Jesus as your lord and savior, accept him and you will never be disappointed because everything is vanity upon vanity. Our lives has no security except the one God gives, we don’t know the time we are leaving this world and the only time we have here we need to use it to satisfy God and benefit humanity.
