The next picture shows me presenting the trophy to the Provost College of Medicine, Professor Ajayi, with Leroy and General Sani Abacha, then a GOC, in Ibadan.
Today, it was another busy day at Petra Christian Academy, Ughelli.
My colleague in Medical School, Leroy Chuma Edozien, Obstetrician and Gynecologist, PhD in Medical Law, President of the North of England Obstetrical and Gynecological Society, and Prince of the Great Asaba Kingdom came visiting from the UK.
We last saw 34 years ago. We were in the same debate team that won the University of Ibadan Inter-hall debate trophy, then, in Alexander Brown Hall in 1983.
We dashed to Effurun-Otor to see my King, Hrm King Duku II, the Orovworere of Effurun-Otor Kingdom. Coincidentally, they were both contestants in the John F. Kennedy Essay Competition.
Leroy Edozien won the competition, but the good news is that they are both leaders in their respective domains now. Mr. “Tete”, a former Green Eagles Player, Bendel Insurance player, Coach of the Female National Team came with him.
We visited Chafac Fish Farm at Effurun-Otor, a multi-million Naira project I attracted to Effurun-Otor, which is doing excellently well.
My prayer for you is that when you see your mates in future, you will have your own testimonies.
You will not be left behind.
We had a great time in my school, the Palace at Effurun-Otor and at Chafac Fish Farm.
Greater things are trending.
The goal is connecting people and building bridges across tribes, denominations, political parties and denominations.
God bless You.
