  • "In the circle of success and failure in the world today, No one owns money. The poor look at it as savings and deposit it in banks in small quantities, the rich borrow it as loans in large collective amounts as capital, they invest it and even create Jobs for the poor, in fact the rich use poor people's money to develop their empires simply because the poor limit money to savings and basic survival but the rich look at it as capital for investment."
  • "Everyone owes his country an obligation to work hard, create income, and pay taxes. A tax is an obligation every citizen owes his country if indeed such citizen wants to see their country develop."
  • Success requires one to surrender what they have as capital with hope to gain more all on a a balance of probabilities.

  • "Africans are still very poor despite holding 80% of the world resources because we haven't applied REASON to see how to use the available resources towards the actual prosperity." "The only missing part is how could God have gifted Africa with all they desire to prosper but yet still remain poor; the fact is that we haven't applied REASON to see how to use the available resources towards the actual prosperity, the difference between us and the West is Simply Reason; God blessed Africa with Resources and blessed the west with Reason.” [1]

Quoted from his interview with Billionaires.Africa in support for his replication of the white house in Uganda.
