As I mark another year on mother Earth, a childhood song springs to mind. Please sing along if you know it…
“Anytime I see another breaking of the day, I say thank You, thank You Lord. Anytime I see another breaking of the day, I say thank You, thank You Lord”.
Everyday alive is a blessing but then again, every year alive is a testimony.
The writer, Charles Nwolisa is grateful to God for the privilege to see another year on Saturday, the 30th of July 2022.
As he marks his birthday, he would like to take you on a memory lane about his life and journey so far in OmegaPro.
Charles Chigozie Junior Nwolisa was born in St. Charles Borromeo Specialist Hospital, Onitsha, Anambra State. He was actually named after the hospital he was birthed in.
Charles was born to the family of Ambassador Chief Dr. Chigozie Nwolisa and Dr. Mrs. Favour Nwolisa (D’Favoured Blue Diamond) sometime during the General Ibrahim Babangida era (now you can guess his age..lol).
Young Charles grew up under the love and tutelage of his parents, was taught to respect elders, love and obey God, honour his parents and guide his siblings aright as the first child of the family.
Charles’ education was broad and vast with his school days transitioning through Onitsha, in Anambra State to FESTAC Town and Ikeja in Lagos State then to Cotonou, Republic of Benin followed by a 5 year stay in Covenant University, Ogun State for his first degree and experiencing its climax at Coventry University in the United Kingdom for his Master’s degree. He underwent his National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in 2011/2012 in Bayelsa State.
The young 6ft 5inch long as he is often referred to is a ‘church boy’, one who hasn’t missed a church service on a Sunday in over 15 years (yes, even during Covid he hosted church services in his compound). He has held several positions in his church; Living Faith Worldwide from Head; Follow Up Unit in Coventry, United Kingdom to Secretary/Head of the Follow Up and Counselling Unit in Ogharefe, Oghara, Delta State.
He loves children and always creates time to talk to and play with them. He is a firm believer in this saying credited to Maria Montessori, “Children are human beings to whom respect is due, superior to us by reason of their innocence and of the greater possibilities of their future”.
Charles loves the kitchen and considers himself a good cook. He can whip up a plate of food that you would actually enjoy eating and ask for more.
Time and time again, Charles has proven that ‘giving is living’ with unannounced and often times unpublicized acts of kindness to those in and outside his circle of influence.
Charles loves reading and has a budding library in his house. He is also a writer and has written for the likes of Bella Naija once upon a time and even owns a blog that has amassed over 3,000 followers from over 120 countries. Click on picture to read his articles on Bella Naija and his personal blog.
From a young timid boy growing up who had to practice asking a girl out in front of a mirror to a confident young man who has spoken to thousands and counting.
Charles by education is a Petroleum Engineering and Oil and Gas Management graduate and by work experience, a 10 year professional in the oil and gas industry. From his time in Rainoil Bulk Stotage Limited in Oghara, Delta State as the Operations Manager (the Youngest Head of Department at that time).
To his sojourn into the murky waters of Business Ownership as the CEO of Trembull Energy Limited (Trembull Gas Limited) and OMP Light Investment Limited.
Charles Nwolisa often called The OmegaPro Minister or T.O.M for short is also into online commodities.
He considers online commodities like Forex and Cryptocurrency as the new oil and gas. So much money can be made trading Forex and all but it requires skills, expertise, experience, risk analysis and plenty money.
But then again, you don’t have to trade yourself. He works with a foreign firm of over 3 years called OMEGAPRO which employs professional traders to trade Forex for you and pays you up to 10% interest on your investment monthly.
He is a humble, dedicated and privileged member of the OmegaPro Nigeria family. A company he talks about even in his dreams and is a Silver Executive.
Charles having lived and schooled abroad knows the potential inherit in the entity called Nigeria and prays/campaigns/advocates for better Leadership to steer this country towards achieving her long hidden and enormous potential. Long story short, Charles is unrepentantly OBIdient and YUSful.
Charles is a sports enthusiast with undiluted love for football (Manchester United), tennis (Novak Djokovic), basketball (Steph Curry and LeBron James), swimming and table tennis.
Charles is a lover of good music with the likes of Brymo, Judikay, Nathaniel Bassey, Omah Lay, 2 Baba (of back in the day), Drake and a host of others featuring prominently in his music playlist.
Oh, Charles loves pets. He used to have a dog named Chelsea back in the day then another called Lucky but none captivated his heart than a cat he named Zane.
‘The world would be a nicer place if everyone had the ability to love as unconditionally as a dog.’M.K. Clinton
Charles has presently immersed himself in books, work, investments, philanthropy and is happily single but that would definitely change soon (watch this space 🙈😉).
Charles is inviting you to a business talk + birthday celebration on Saturday, 30th July 2022 by 10am at Landmark Hotel, 4 Worlu Street off Olu Obasanjo Road, Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
