Sapphire Scents CEO, Wale Jana has broken his silence following arraignment by EFCC.
EFCC finally arraigned the celebrity businessman who had been dragged over unpaid debts.
Sharing a cryptic post, Wale Jana stated that it isn’t the critic who counts, nor the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
For him, the credit belongs to the man in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat, knowing that he would triumph.
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
He added,”the credit belongs to the man who is actually, in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly”.
