Platforms are avenues that have shot alot of people into prominence and greatness
The possibility of you be known and accepted is sometimes dependent on the platform which you are.
Until you are on the right or good platform, you may not come into limelight regardless of your dexterity but its hard for a person with high skill not to reach his/her right platform oneday.
So the prerequisite for reaching your right platform is to be at the top of your game. You need to be good at what you do. Life pay much for excellence but payless for average.
Pastor E.A Adeboye was not in limelight until he took the mantle of leadership of RCCG.
President Barrack Obama did not become a world renowned personality until he became the president of the most powerful nation in the world.
Muhammadu Buhari enjoyed the advantage of good platform when he won the Nigerian presidential election.
He had previously contested for three good times but lost.
He lost not because he wasn't good enough but because he wasn't on the right platform.
Would he have won if he was the presidential candidate of Kowa party?
The summary of the matter is, attimes skills pays but most times good platform pays better.
