A Nigerian mann identified as Anyi Obi has taken to his social media page to share his success story after becoming an Associate Professor in Cypru.

Obi recalled how a prophet boldly told him that he will never achieve anything academically but should go into business. He affirmed that he made a promise to himself to upturn the negative prophecy spoken over him when he was just eight (8) years old.
His words ;
Today I gained my academic Promotion as an Associate Professor of Construction Technology from The American University Cyprus. I sat before a Jury of five(5) full Professors and proved my worth. It has been a very short Journey academically yet very promising with great achievements. Knowing that I received my Doctorate just under 4 years ago makes this special. I made a promise to myself to upturn a negative prophecy spoken over me when I was eight(8)years.
A prophet boldly declared that I will never achieve anything academically rather I should look into doing business. I did look into business but I also choose to pursue one thing I always loved- Teaching and Learning irrespective of what a prophet said. I did not allow a prophecy take my dreams and aspirations away. I have gone ahead to pioneer a software that is endorsed in the UK and Europe.
Yes, you have the power to alter any prophecy on your life. Let me not forget to tell you that I am the first Associate Professor in this field of a Nigerian decent and the youngest in Africa. I chose to become what I saw and not what anyone saw, in a nutshell – It is your Life. Many of you reading this, I implore you never to succumb to negative words no matter from whose mouth it is coming from, stop being victims of strange and negative utterances. It takes determination, zeal and the Grace of God. I am doing it and Yes, you can. God made us with unrestrained possibilities, don’t let whatever anyone saw stop you.
