아버지의 유산| The One with Chief Ganiyu Hassan and Funmi Ajao – On Fatherhood, Life, and Legacy: Episode 14 (2021)

June 16, 2021

What's a relationship series without an episode that touches on the first relationship we all encounter- family. In honor of Father's Day coming up this Sunday, we have a father-daughter duo to talk about their relationship for the first time ever.


Today we have Funmi Ajao, my friend since College (the Rachel to my Monica), and her dear father, Chief Ganiyu Hassan. Funmi is a pharmacist, widely experienced in clinical and hospital pharmacy practice with over ten years of working experience. Asides from her other interests, she is passionate about mentoring and counseling, which can be attributed to her intimacy with God and her dear dad's impact on her life.


Chief Hassan is an 85-year old Nigerian man who loves his family and country dearly but loves God much more. As a Muslim, he calls for peace and coexistence with others. He's an astute and honest businessman with decades of experience in shipping commodities across the world. Spending time with his family is very important because he's passionate about sharing wisdom and impacting the lives around him.


In this episode, we explored Chief Hassans's role and accomplishment as a dad and granddad, his passion for education, emphasis on love and unity, and his unrelenting faith for a better Nigeria. Chief also dished out parenting advice and some powerful words of wisdom.


Here's wishing all the amazing Fathers out there a very happy Father's Day! And I love you, Dad!
