OH LORD, GIVE US A VOICE!


O Lord our help in ages past!
Our Redeemer today and tomorrow!
Our Help is times of need!
O God our Everlasting Father!


We have come to say “Thank you”
You have done what no man can do
You are doing what no man will ever do
We have come to appreciate you again

We need a Voice!
A voice that will speak from the Lecture Halls
Lecturers and Professors who will speak against the ills of the education sector
Voices that will not just speak Academic Grades but will be bold to speak to Politicians and Government

We need a Voice!!
A voice that will speak from the Hospitals
Doctors and Health Practitioners that will speak against the ills of the health sector
Voices that will not just speak Medications but will be bold to speak to the Politicians and Government

We need a voice!
A voice that will speak from the Religious Houses
Pastors & Imams that will speak against the ills of our moral values
Voices that will not just speak Religion but will be bold to speak to the Politicians and Government

We need a voice!
A voice that will speak from the Media Houses
Journalists and Editors that will speak against the ills of our Leaders
Voices that will not just speak public relations but will be bold to speak to the Politicians and Government

We need a voice!
A voice that will speak from the traditional stools
Chiefs and Rulers of the people that will speak against the ills of our Society
Voices that will not just speak allocations but will be bold to speak to the Politicians and Government

In every area and in every corner
Let Men and Women rise up to speak up
In every villages and urban centers
Raise People who are not afraid to Speak up

In every town and Cities
Let Leaders of Industries rise to speak up
In every state and Constituencies
Raise Representatives who are not afraid to speak up

In every place where people are gathered
Let Youths and Elders rise up to speak up
In every organizations and institutions
Raise future Leaders who are not afraid to speak up

We need people who call a goat a goat
We need leaders who will call a ghost a ghost
We need representatives who will call a dog a dog

We need spiritual heads who will call a bug a bug

Let Voices begin to speak for our favour
Let Voices speak against our hard labour
Let Voices speak up for our jubiliations
Let Voice speak against our tribulations

We need a Voice o Lord
Give us a Voice in this Nation
We have come to make this request with tears
Hear and answer us in Jesus Name.

Amen!

FALLEN

Our Land was pure. The grass was green. Our Water was clean. The leaves could cure. We drank from the stream With leaves bridged to the rock as cups. As we laved our body under the heavy drops, Our body needed no cream. We were at peace The Palm wine tasted like honey. The village square was our group chat. Words were strong and laughter from the heart. Love was not bought with money. Our Farms yielded with interest. We had enough to eat and ship. Our eyes are closed when we sleep. We worked, worked and had our rest. We were not at war Our Merchants traveled South, West and North. With products of trade for exchange of coins. Women were married not just for groins. Deals were made, no one was fought. Then came the experts with hats and guns. They took our lands and made us Roomers. They deceived our neighbors and made us brothers. Our rights were taken and we became their puns. We were just neighbours They joined No

HOW THEY ALMOST WASTED MY LIFE IN LAGOS

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)?

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

OPERATION SAVE OUR DISPENSARY

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
