Mordi Collins Ubaka
CEO DECONE CONSULTS
Gone are the days when every youth in the country was bent on working in the oil sector, in this present day we’ve got youths who have chosen to tread differently .
Meet one of such youths, Mordi Collins Ubaka, the 26yr old Ceo of decone consult, resident of the garden city, a graduate of chemical engineering at the university of Port Harcourt, who Joined the world of ICT, one of the fast moving, most creative sector for those brave ones with BHAG dreams(Big, Hairy, and Audacious Goal, his initial dream had been to work in an oil company but when presented with the opportunity, he was dissatisfied with the job and had to quit after 3months.
Currently, he keeps his hands busy by empowering youths, he is one of the most enthusiastic and optimistic youth I have crossed paths with. With 10 siblings, he is the last child of his parents who hails from Iselel-ukwu In Delta State. An intelligent and multi-talented young man, he developed himself till he became well-grounded in the world of ICTas an undergraduate and soon after graduation, he, like every typical Nigerian graduate, trouped at the oil companies in search of job openings, when he found one, he quit after discovering it wasn’t meant for him and then struggled to build up the business of his dream one he was passionate about and not just something he could manage because he needed to be busy. So, with the help of a team of 6 alongside him, the idea they’ve always shared became a reality.
Last year saw the birth of DECONE CONSULTS, a firm which specializes on interior decorating, software development, and also offers ICT services(create e-portals etc) and trainings on oracle 11g, microsoft office suit, linux, SQL server, asphen HYSYS, and MATLAB to both individuals and companies.
“last year was very tedious and challenging for me and my team mates we ‘ve being busy trying to put the company together and it has not been easy but we just got started and I can assure you we already have clients who are doing business with us and we have successfully trained the first set of applicant last year. This year, the business is heading towards a bigger picture,” Mordi recounted when asked how well his business faired.
While he discussed with us, he had lots to say about his company and personality, he sees himself as a pilot conveying passengers and in need of great focus to avoid crash-landing. This is all a product of his childhood, as a child, he had best friends who could not further their education as a result of financial problems, although, he desperately wanted to help but couldn’t as he had no means then. Now, he wants to be of help to as many he can and wants to help in a big way.
Though they are still in the process of expanding their network of clients, Mordi hopes in the next future their company would be one of the largest or in fact the largest ICT firm in west Africa as he emphasized. Asides being the first Ceo of DECONE CONSULTS,Mordi is one of the directors of 2CS., an equally baby organization that has interest in youth and site development and will soon launch it’s maiden project called “KOPA9JA.COM”, an online community for past, serving, and prospective youth corp members. As part of his future plans, this ambitious and young entrepreneur hinted he aspires to be a youth ambassador and wants inspire change to the world.
Mordi also sings and acts at his spare time and he’s still single *wink*wink*.
