Ghanaian businessman Michael Ibrahim Mahama has given a testimony in church as he shares the story of how he moved from a place of ‘nothing’ to become the big businessman he is today.
Giving a testimony at the Grace Chapel church for the launch of a book called Destiny, Ibrahim Mahama, revealed that it was only through God’s intervention and destiny that he met a man he called Uncle Seth, who helped him to start his business.
Speaking to the congregants and other guests, the founder of Engineers and Planners, the largest indigenous-owned mining company in West Africa, and the owner of several other businesses in Ghana, narrated that he returned to Ghana from the United Kingdom in 1997, and upon his return, the only property he had was a motorbike, but was bent on setting up a business which required some vehicles.
Ibrahim Mahama, who is the younger brother of John Dramani Mahama added that even though he did not have the money to buy the vehicles, he went to town to make some enquiries and got to meet Uncle Seth by chance whose business was in the same building as that of Ibrahim’s late mother, Joyce Tamakloe, liked him, and even treated him like an adopted son, and through the new relationship, Uncle Seth gave him three pickup vehicles to start his business with.
“I came from the UK in 1997 to start a small business and all I wanted to do was to rent one, two machines.
“When I came I didn’t have a car. I had a motorcycle. I don’t know what took me to some corner to look for a vehicle to buy and I met Uncle Seth.
“When I met Uncle Seth I didn’t have money so when I go I will laugh and talk with him. He will do me a favour by giving me the car.
The business has grown so big that I can’t even manage it alone.” He said.
