My suspension from school made me embrace business – CEO, True Happiness Technical Service

By Aminat Babatunde and Adeshina Mariam

Mr. Ibrahim Badru is the Chief Executive Officer of True Happiness
Technical Service,  a popular panel beating business in Ilorin, Kwara
State.
According to him, he ventured into the business to avoid idleness
after being suspended from school due to his inability to pay fees.
“I was sent home while schooling  at Mount Camel College, Ilorin
because I couldn’t afford to pay my school fees and my parents
suggested that I should learn  a craft  since they don’t have funds
for my education,” he said.
He struggled to  save money during his five years apprenticeship with
the hope  of starting his business.
“I was able to saved some money and started the business with the sum
of N100,000 as capital. I bought some materials despite challenges,”
he stressed.
He said what stood him out in that line of business is his commitment
to work and quality of service rendered.
“I attracted many customers as my clients  introduced me to their
friends. What has kept me going is sincerity and prompt service
delivery.”
The CEO urged  youths to embrace entrepreneurship and not to depend
solely on white collar job as they can fall back on their business in
case of eventualities.
He noted that he has trained several apprentices thereby contributing
his quota towards reduction of unemployment rate in the society.
