Onakoya had given his dad his car

Onakoya recalled how he had given his father his only car before he travelled to America.

Onakoya’s dad sold his taxi 13 years ago to pay for his Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) and West African Examination Council (WAEC) exams.

Onakoya said he gave his dad the car without a clear replacement plan.

“Just before I traveled to America, I called my dad and gave him my only car. he had sold his taxi 13 years ago so I could pay for my WAEC and JAMB examination fees. The joy on his face brought tears- it was the least I could do for my parents who sacrificed everything so I could get an Education.

“It wasn’t clear how I was going to get a new car without spending a fortune but i had faith,” Onakoya wrote.

How Onakoya won Nord Motors CEO

Onakoya shared how Nord Motors CEO, a strong chess player, invited him for a match and proposed a strong deal.

He said he won the CEO from a very complex position after an hour of intense play. In his words:

“Yesterday, I got a call from @oluwatobiajayij , the CEO of @nordmotion , inviting me to his office for a chat and a chess match.

“During our conversation, he proposed an outrageous deal: if I could beat him, I could choose any car in their showroom for free. Knowing he was a strong chess player from our previous game analyses(Although we had never played before), I accepted the challenge. After about an hour of intense play, I managed to win from a very complex position.”

Onakoya broke the Guinness World Record for the longest chess marathon in April at New York’s iconic Times Square.
