Little Known African History 101

Do you know that Late Chief Anthony Enahoro‘s mother http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthony_Enahoro and Archbishop Olubumi Okogie http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthony_Olubunmi_Okogie were born of the same father, King Ogbidi Okojie 1 of Uromi Royal Dynastyhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ogbidi_Okojie Archbishop Olubumi Okojie (as his mum is yoruba, letter ‘g’ is always put in place of letter ‘j’ so it is always spelled Okogie, but both names are from the same family).

When Times Comes

When time comes, I’ll comfort you

Because God has not given us the spirit of fear but of a sound mind

When time comes, I’ll be your strength

For he will not give you more than you can endure

When time comes, I’ll be your shield

Trust in God and he will answer you

When time comes, I’ll be your inspiration

Be strong, my beloved and prayerful

When time comes, I’ll be your rock

Let not your heart be troubled

When time comes, I’ll reason with you

Remember, when calamity comes the wicked tremble and suffer

When time comes, I’ll encourage you

Even in death the righteous will find refuge that this world could not offer

When time comes, I’ll teach you

The one thing that binds us together is love

When time comes, I’ll nurture you

Your memory will forever remain

When time comes, I’ll lead you

And I’m thankful for the unconditional love you gave

When time comes, I’ll be with you

And guard you through hills and mountains of life

When time comes I will carry you

And be at peace knowing that you fought the good fight of faith

I Have a Dream Nigeria

d5952dd595af70265ff5eeef3f87c182

By Princess Asha

I have a Dream Nigeria that there was a rebirth of conscience in our leaders, both the young and old alike came out of the wilderness in solidarity and became the new face of nation building.

I have a Dream Nigeria that we were no longer defined by ethnicity, corruption, radicalism or religion but by heroism and patriotism.

I have a Dream Nigeria that the tears and pains of our motherland gave birth to a new nation, our land flourished once again with resources, innovation and technology to heal, feed and provide for the poor, and destitute.

I have a Dream Nigeria that the conscience of Nigeria returned back to Nigerians and that the oppressed and forgotten danced to the sound of freedom, equality and justice for all.

I have a Dream Nigeria that change may not come easy,  and will come at a cost or perhaps, may not happen in our life time, but because the young and old dare to dream dreams of a better tomorrow, Nigeria will wake up from its sleeping slumber by kiss of destiny, and that history is waiting on you to be written.
