In a country where the concept of true nationhood is absent, plagued by diverse socio-political issues ranging from poor leadership to ethnic conflicts, one is left to wonder what to make of it all. Many have lost their voices over time; either because they are dead or tired of wailing. To have someone speak up, not minding the consequences is sincerely one of the best things one could ever hope for. We all should be bold enough to say “…even after facing the guillotine, we will not keep shut…” After all, as Sir Walter Raleigh said “…no stab the Soul can kill…” We only fear God and are of God!
“…and as we pray, we will be practical too…” This sums it all up. As the holy book says, “…faith without works is vain…”
