• I am not a Politician

Raji Kehinde, an Osun based businessman and philanthropist on Thursday explained how he started his business in 1990 with N5000.

He stated this while addressing newsmen at a programmed named “An Evening With Aaraj”, as part of the events to celebrate his birthday.

He said “I was in Obafemi Awolowo University when I started my business with N5000 in 1990. There were about 20,000 students in OAU as at that time.

“I was able to secure different location on campus and got these women that does ‘any work’ and placed them round.

“So I got the names of bakers that the students like and then did a questionnaire to find out which one the students prefer most.

“I approach the baker with N5000 and said let your truck drop for me at this different locations and those women were selling.

“My business grew from N5000 to N50,000 in three months and then I started borrowing students money and then take 10% interest.

“During yam seasons, students prefer N20 yam than to buy N20 bread because they finish bread immediately but Yam will take them two or three days, so we started buying yam.

“I will travel to Ore to buy yam. I later wrote to the faculty of agriculture that I want to start farming because my firsy degree was agricultural engineering, so I asked them to lease land to me and they did. Thats how I started farming.

“Its from my savings that I sponsored my masters study abroad”, he explained.

Aaraj however noted that even though being an Engineer and a Contractor, he has never been awarded a single contract by either the state, federal or even local government or any government agency.

“I have always been a humanist. In 2015 I trained 500 persons in Osogbo out of which 52 are now millionaires”.

“I am not a politician. My people are too poor and my mission is to help them. Nobody should attach me to any politician”, he said.
