Dear unborn children,

Today is children’s day down here. So I am wishing you HAPPY CHILDREN’S DAY! I guess you mum will be wishing you much more now. I am not with her yet. I am yet to see her. I wished you were here already but maybe it’s ok you are not here yet. It’s fortunate and unfortunate that you are coming into a country that does not have a working system. In this country the Government doesn’t care about children’s welfare, so, it’s my duty and responsibilities to ensure your welfare and to provide for you. I am trying to prepare for your coming so that you will not come here and start sleeping on mats.

It’s not easy down here but fear not Jesus had already given us victory. Challenges will come but be of good courage for we are joint heirs with Christ. I do not operate in the economy of this country. I operate in a different economy. I operate in the economy of God. So don’t be scared of the economy of this country that you are coming into. The only thing is that in the economy of God there are times and seasons for God to promote a man. I am waiting for my turn because for a man to enjoy the economy of God he needs patient. I really had wished that you are here to celebrate this children’s day. If your see your mum, tell her that I am so sorry for not been able to find her yet. Tell her to change her prayers to “Lord let him find me soon”. I don't know if I have seen her before or yet to see her. You know down here we do a lot of prayers for anything we want especially in starting a new family. Maybe she is among my friends now or she is not even in my life. Tell God to open your dad's eyes to see sharp sharp. Also tell your mum that I am working to build a good home. I am working on my excesses and the rubbish in me. I don't think she can cope with the nasty me for now but I will soon be a better man.

Please make sure that you come along with all the blessings that God gives to children to their parents. In fact ask God for extra because the rate of school fees in this country is something else for good schools. Except you want to attend Sabo Oniba primary school in Ajangbadi Lagos and Awori college in Ojo Lagos.

Israel, don’t drag position with Grace. I want her to come first. I have my reason. So kindly allow your sister to come here before you. But if God is sending you here first then I have no problem with that. I hope you guys are enjoying children’s day up there? Try and draw the pictures of the mansions in heaven and also collect the building money from Baba God. If not you better come with mosquito nets. House issues in Port Harcourt and Abuja is something else. Except you want to live in Lagos and in Lagos you will not go near Victoria Island or Ikoyi because I am not working with Exxon Mobil yet and I don’t own a company yet. So shine your eyes and get enough goodies from God.

You may need to increase you prayer level if you want to come here anytime soon. Tell God to bless me and open my eyes to see your mother. Also tell God to give me the courage to propose to her quick. I hope you don’t want to suffer broken home, so pray that I will be a good husband and that your mum will be a good wife. Please make sure that your other siblings are close by. I don’t want you guys to give more than 3 years gap.

Today is still children’s day. I owe you guys this year’s children’s day celebration. It means that I will give you double portion on your first children’s day celebration on earth. I will be sending you more letters till I see you face to face. There are things that I wish to tell you but I can’t not tell you by writing. I will tell you when you come. My regards to your grand dad. I hope to see you soon.

Yours love,
Your earthly father
Ota Uma Uma Benjamin.

This thing called life. On this edition of Everyday People I am talking about the story of a young life that would have been carelessly truncated. But God saved his Unique Life. Yes! This Life is Unique! It is Unique because of you. There is no other you. No where in this whole life. Yes Uniqueness. That’s what I am talking about? What makes a life unique is what the individual is. What attracts people or a market to you is that niche that distinguishes you from others. What is your unique selling point (USP)? There must be something you should be known for. I don’t know what it is but you have to think about it and create that uniqueness for yourself. What are you ready to be known for? What did Jesus die for? What did the apostles of old die for? What did Martin Luther die for? What did Ghandi die for? What did Idahosa die for? What is Adeboye living for? What does Oyedepo exist for? What is Kumuyi preaching for? The list is endless. What is Dr. Omalu sacrificing for


THE RENOVATED SCHOOL DISPENSARY So, we all left FGC Okigwe in 2000. Wow! That was 16 years ago! We were known as the Millennium Set. The Y2K Set.  16 Years down the line we have seen other sets hold Reunions and Parties and nothing for our Set due to the mindset that we were not united. Although, we had been meeting each other in tranches and batches at various Universities, Cities, Countries and everywhere. Of course, clicks maintained their clicks, friends maintained their friendships and people also went different ways. With the advent of cellular phones and social media (especially Facebook), hooking up became less difficult. As we began to reconnect among ourselves through the various FGC Okigwe Groups and Pages on Facebook, memories began to rewind and flashbacks became real.  The major consequences of these Flashbacks were a mixture of anger, revenge and “yabbings” that resulted from the numerous punishments, extortion, heart-breaks and what have you that hap


My People for this Community! How una dey? Last week we started a story on Everyday People and we promised to finish the story this week.  In continuation of the story, below are the extracts from episode one: “I am saying WHEN WAHALA JAM GBESE NA PALAVA E GO GET! The problem became so much that even the neighbors became so uncomfortable with the whole arrangement. This trouble is worst anytime the Man and his wife made love in the night. Our aunty R will always pick a quarrel with the wife of the house. The most painful part is that this man will just disappear leaving the two women to dig it out with themselves. If you were in the shoes of this wife what would you do? Will you allow aunty R to squat with your family in the first instance? Will you ask your husband to drive his sister away? Will you fight your sister-in-law out of the house? Will you start a prayer program for aunty R? Will, you just allow everything to pass and hope for #BetterDaysAhead?”
