PPB: Mr. Debo Good afternoon, how you doing today?
Debo: I’m fine, thank you o
PPB: Can you tell us a little about you?
Debo: I am Erinfolami Adebowale Timothy, a graduate of Computer Science from Bowen University Iwo, I’m from Oyo state and I almost forgot, I was born October 19th.
PPB: What was your childhood dream?
Debo: I always wanted to be a Pilot and somewhere in between my dad fell in love with the dream so he kept encouraging me but I think I lost the zeal along the line and another one I wanted to be a soldier, my grandfather was a soldier he even fought in the world war so I guess looking at his pictures inspired me and I wanted to be just like him but like they say we can’t all we want so here am I, I became a computer scientist.
PPB: Why did you study computer science?
Debo: I loved chemistry because I had a wonderful teacher, allow me to celebrate him he is Mr. Okelade. I decided to study petrochemical engineering so I put in for that course at the University of Ibadan but the admission process was taking a long while and my mom wasn’t so comfortable so I had to opt in for my second choice which was Bowen but they had no engineering course and I had to settle for Computer Science and I had no regrets.
PPB: Hmm, so what was growing up like
Debo: I was born and bred in Lagos, so I’m a legit lagos boy o (smiles), growing up was fun, I am the first child, I have two beautiful sisters we experience the normal siblings rivalry but I love both of them and my parents they are absolutely the best, they tried to make life so comfortable for us and really I had a very interesting childhood.
PPB: What’s your Vision as an individual?
Debo: I love people and I want to birth solutions but at the end of the day I want to be a philanthropist.
PPB: what do you do for PayPorte?
Debo: I am a vendor manager
PPB: When did you join PayPorte?
Debo: I joined in 2015 before my NYSC when my posting came out, I was posted to Kebbi but I couldn’t redeploy so I came back fully as a staff after my youth service in 2016.
PPB: How has working with PayPorte been?
Debo: Initially it was challenging but when I got to understand the system it’s been a very exciting journey, I’ve learnt a lot and I’ve really learnt how to deal with people, understanding them but in all it’s been an amazing journey.
