I never really know what George’s education background. I never know whether he really went to university or not. I would say that George is actually a pretty smart man but he is not a book wise kind of person, who could tell you the story of the Cold War or the story of the author of Odyssey or the Island of Ogygia or even The Electron.
George is a life wise kind of person, coming from small town of Nigeria. He has been travelling around Africa and Asia to find means to improve his life as he hates the poverty. He would do anything to generate money and improve his life.
Anyway, as a father of two, George always said to be that being a father is a very big responsibility, he wants that his kids get the best education so they would not live a life like him. I would say, I was pretty touched by that. That’s what I like about him.
For me, education is a basic foundation for anyone to live in this competitive yet challenging life. Everyone should learn as much as they can because it could determine their future as everyone deserves a good future. However, education is not enough, our spiritual and bodily power would add extra value into our life as an individual.
Hence, I agree that he should provide an excellent education for his kids because we are living in a competitive world. Unless you become an entrepreneur and choose to be an employee of multinational big company, you must have an excellent education.
But what I don’t understand is while he is complaining that he doesn’t have penny, he often purchased for fancy stuff such as Dolce&Gabbana outfit, Valentino outfit, Kenzo shoes, Emporio Armani suits or Roberto Cavalli shoes. So now my question is being, how would he provide an excellent education for his two cute boys while he just shop to satisfy himself?
I was happy that there were a couple of occasions when I gave him several books for his children and help him to choose an encyclopaedia for them. I hope that it would be useful for them. I just hope that they would really get a good education in the future. I just really hope that they can grow as smart kids with good education. Hence, they would be able to get a legal job, which pay them with proper salary and live a good life. Everybody deserve a good future.
