“And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your young men shall see visions, your old men shall dream dreams” [Acts 2: 17].
The Year 2002 marked the turning point of my relationship with God when divine visions and dreams started flooding into my spirit. I was still in service, but it became clearly evident that God was preparing me for some challenging Christian tasks, preparatory to my retirement (as a professional banker) the following year. I was however not aware of this early retirement which came about in the year 2003 as the result of merger of banks.

I moved by faith in obedience to do what God showed me even though my finances were too insignificant to attempt implementing the enormity of developments I envisioned in my dreams. Progress was swift as God sponsored and progressively supported what he wanted to do through me. I am grateful to God for giving me an excellent spirit to act upon his instructions; after all, they say, ‘it was just a dream’.
My lovely wife, Winifred Akuhwa, has been extremely supportive of my drive to establish and sustain CDM Academy International. She demonstrated her total commitment to this task by sacrificing the comfort of our family house located in the famous Lekki Peninsular of Lagos State; consenting to its sale in order to commence the execution of the CDM project. Beside this brave gesture, Winifred Akuhwa is totally committed to her administrative role as the Proprietress of the CDM Academy International.

Three successive dreams beginning and ending at the same predetermined stages of some structural progress of what appeared to be a special institution originated in the vision of my head upon my bed. I was deeply anxious and shared these dreams with my wife and some few associates. The interpretations were encouraging; and the decision to act upon them changed the course of my destiny to where we are today, namely, the establishment of the CDM Academy International.
CDM Academy is a Government approved international secondary school, certified by the Benue State Ministry of Education. The stake-holders are family members who are also Directors of the institution. It was registered at the Corporate Affairs Commission, Abuja, Nigeria. The Academy is unsubscribed.
