In the last 24 hours, the internet has went abuzz with tales of what they have learnt from Billionaires son Paddy Adenuga’s life experience, when he nearly attempted to bought Chevron Netherlands at age 29 in 2014, and Nigerians can’t stop talking about the ruggedness fight and zeal in him for pulling that deal at young age without any assistant from his billionaire’s family and father Mike Adenuga, who’s owner of Globacom Limited and Conoil PLC.
Nigerians took to social media to express their views on the Paddy Adenuga‘s Chevron Netherlands deal experience, some shares their view on what to be done better, what others should learn and so on.
Paddy Adenuga can really really write! I'd keep the rest of my thoughts on his Chevron Netherlands experience for offline conversations.

One could argue that Edgar knew that nothing would come out of the venture and that was why he wanted his cash upfront.
Last last, Paddy spent a fortune to learn a lesson he’s teaching us for free. Bless him.

This is how the African entrepreneur of the 21st century should tell their stories not the “God did it” auto response they utter when asked about their successes and failures. @OgbeniDipo
Thank you Paddy for sharing. https://t.co/OlQRYgeDiw

4. Those that drew inspiration
Paddy Adenuga's article was both inspiration and oppression from the beginning to the end.
It was a tough read for me

5. Those that have opinions
Paddy Adenuga's story is impressive but watching BBN/TV doesn't stop you from achieving great.
Successful people are those that can manage their time very well. https://t.co/QHOPvQpEIE

Don't tell me that Paddy' father is a billionaire. He left his job at Glo and Conoil to pursue his dream leveraging on the connections he made while on the job and almost pulled it off. You don't see that in most billionaires' children.

At 29 Alexis is being paid over $350,000 a week
At 29 Aubameyang is joining Arsenal for $50m+
At 29 Paddy Adenuga almost bought Chevron Netherland
At 29 Mark Zuckerberg had a networth of $34bn
To the 28 year olds out there, dont say you're too young to achieve greatness. Push.

Paddy Adenuga left school at 18(With a year off; hence, should have been 17).
I entered school at 19.
Though we are motivated by his feat(s), don't solely use him as your benchmark.
You may contemplate suicide.

That Paddy Adenuga’s story is crazy and should be developed as a movie.
Too tensed but detailed and interesteing.
Life is sweet, money is good.
Alex is a b**ch.
I want to visit Netherlands.
Follow your instincts.
Do more, talk less.

Now thinking of making a bid for film rights to the enthralling Paddy Adenuga story. A thriller, shot on 3 continents, and titled ABANDEX.

That Paddy's story has turned all of you to moguls because I don't understand all these tweets I'm seeing. Did you skip the part he said he knew one of the best minds in economics since he was 13? Ta ni Jero e mo?

This paddy's article just made me realise something in life bla bla bla. Suddenly everyone is realizing this morning.

Someone tell paddy adenuga that you can do anything when you've got a billionaire father…I'd rather read inspirational stories from people like Oprah who rose from the lowest of the low to becoming what she is today.

I read his story and I believe that beyond the advantage he has, there are lessons to learn. Expertise isn't just a product of advantage, but dedication to work. The other question is how do we break into their circle? https://t.co/Oryrj8II5C

The guy's power of language though. Did you observe his writing style? Now, that's not regular. Paddy Adenuga is brilliant.

We may not have the connections or the money of Paddy Adenuga but the resilience is astounding. Even he knew he was doing something way above him but he forged ahead. He fought for what he wanted. He struggled through the bumps. He did the Lord’s work. I’m thoroughly impressed.
— Kung Fu Pandami (@DamiElebe) January 30, 2018
True. He fought through it, “he forged ahead”.

I'm a new Paddy Adenuga fan. Comes across as eccentric but that's expected and sounds like a regular guy who just happens to be FXXXING LOADED!!! pic.twitter.com/t7sNpemLVI
