FRET ABOUT NOTHING, GOD SHALL LOOK AFTER YOU : DO CHARITY- IT COVERS A MULTITUDE OF SINS

FRET ABOUT NOTHING, GOD SHALL LOOK AFTER YOU : DO CHARITY- IT COVERS A MULTITUDE OF SINS

 ... Chief Alex Ojo remained immobile on the bed. Tucked up by 4 dirty brown pillows in his 10 bedroom  Mansion in his lkeja GRA, residence , which fate has now foisted upon him to be his fatal Prison . Muttering inaudibly. I had no compassion for him. He was  a wicked man. He was now 75 years old. I was his lawyer. My God, how much l disliked this man! But he pays well . He suffered stroke 4 years ago and 6 years ago was the last time l entered his house. My law firm acts for him in all his matters. He never owes professional fees. He was very boastful, noisy, loud,arrogant, disrespectful, violent, "vexatious"  and full of himself.  But l never wasted time to put him in his position or place . I will say to him " ...Chief, l am your lawyer not your play thing, put your cap of respect in place.."  he would reply .." What lawyer are you sef? I will sack you.." then burst into a contemptuous laugh. I think the feeling of dislike was mutual but he was satisfied with my performance as this lawyer, so ? 


    I honestly was not expecting to see Chief Alex, bedridden, hopeless,  helpless, forlorn,  and alone except for his gardener's 18 year old daughter, Ekeete,  who would come in from time to time to check on him and leave us alone. CHIEF Alex had partially lost his voice, so l had to strain myself to hear him . I moved close to him and the stench from his mouth and urine wet bed threw me back . He noticed and apologised. 


    What had happened to this man, l wondered.  Chief had 18 successful Companies.  He was into business from Sawmills to Oil and Gas, Dredging and Quarry . He was smart and willy like a Fox . He had so many enemies .  I never knew him to have friends.  What happened to this man , l asked myself again  .  The windows in his room were shut,  l opened them for fresh air . The room was poorly ventilated.  I separated the curtains.  Chief gave a sigh of relief.  I told him to relax, "... all is  well "  Chief Alex was neither a Christian  nor a Muslim or a traditionalist. His religion was the art of wickedness and making money . The gardener's daughter came in again, served him his food which bought from a food hawker , l interviewed her to know what happened to Chief Alex .   She told me stories that broke my heart - 

   

     Chief Alex had 3 wives - Aunty Bimpe, AUNTY Aisha , and sister Isioma . Sister lsioma wanted to be addressed as "Sister" because, according to her " l am not as criminally old as Chief"s other wives "  Sister lsioma was the last of the wives of Chief Alex . She was young , beautiful, very quarrelsome, a vampire and more educated than the others.  Aunty Bimpe had 5 children, 4 boys and a girl . Aisha had 6 children- all Male.  Sister Isioma had 3 daughters.  Chief Alex in his good days will say to me "  .,,  Baby Chief Giwa-amu,  l am a detribalised Nigerian - l got wives from the East, West and South, l qualify to be President of Nigeria.." 

    

   l did not like him, so to me his jokes were evidence of his idiocy or a queerstick of puerile irresponsibility and grand stupidity. But l love one thing in his house or that which he owns.  - his 2 year old daughter, Atinuke.  Babies are my mumu button.  Atinuke was  then the last daughter of Sister lsioma... 


   Ekeete, the gardener"s daughter told me that one day,  Sister lsioma came home from Church and started a fight with Chief"s other wives accusing them of witchcraft.  That they( the wives)  prevented her from having a Male child for Chief. That she threatened to burn down Chief"s house if he did not send the wives away.  That the matter persisted for over a year.  That Chiief was compelled to call all his children for a family meeting to report the incidents at home. That in the said meeting a fight broke out which led to Chief being thrown down from the minor balcony.  That Chief broke his legs. He was in hospital for 3 months. When Chief got back home ,he called another family meeting, this time armed with title documents . He distributed most of  his houses among his children , then wives.  And gave each wife a house in Lagos .


He also gave all of them money. He ordered his wives to vacate his house with 48 hours. He was done with marriage to them . He distributed his companies to his children and told them he had fully retired.  He kept only the Hotel in ljebu Ode,  Ogun State and the Quarry business . That the children by Aunty Bimpe, all left Nigeria with their new found wealth and within 2 years sold EVERYTHING their father gave them . That Chief's business adversaries were the buyers . That the second wife, Aisha, went back to Nasarawa State and cut all communications with Chief Alex, she felt betrayed by him. That the third wife, Sister lsioma, sold her house Chief, gave to her and the other properties and relocated to America. That one night Chief Alex received a phone call at 11pm. Aunty Bimpe died in a gas explosion in Takwa bay .... She had gone there with some of her friends.  That night , Chief Alex Ojueeku Ojo suffered stroke and was rushed to the hospital by his driver and cook .That  Chief suffered but survived.  That believing that Chief was going to die,  the driver and cook came back home broke into Chief's bedroom and stole ALL his valuables and a lot of money which Chief kept at home . 

    

    I remember this gardener's daughter,  Ekeete, now 18years old . AT 10 years old, Chief had set his dogs twice on her for "trespassing"  from her place in the servant's quarters to his side of his  house .  I was there personally and l told him off. She finished her story . I hated Chief Alex more .

    

    I called 2 people on the phone to meet me at***** GRA, lkeja, Chief Alex"s house, where we were.  One was a retired Male  Nurse( he asked me to help him get a job after he retired from Lagos State Government) and the other,  a medical doctor.  They were friends of mine . We moved Chief to another Section of the House and invited corporate cleaners to clean and fumigate the house. When Chief Alex was lifted from the bed , a colony of maggots had built  their "paradise" on his bed and buttocks.  The doctor and nurse gave him a befitting 1 hour bath, with dettol and hot water. Chief the loquacious, could not talk . I watched as the nurse and doctors crub his body like they were washing puppies in a veterinary clinic. They were gentle with his penis area . So this arrogant mother fucker will allow another person  touch his testicles., l said to myself. Life's  tragedies are indeed a leveller . We changed his clothes to sparking white robe and wore him adult sanitary towel to contain his urine and excreta .. 

   

    ..Chief Alex wept when the next day we moved him back to his bedroom  He wept  because he was helpless ..We saw dead rats and cockroaches everywhere. I paid the Bills and l got my refund with huge interest back from Chief . I decided l was going to be his undertaker though he was still alive . I employed the nurse for Chief,  while the doctor came in thrice a week - NONE OF CHIEF ALEX CHILDREN EVER CAME AROUND AFTER THEY GOT THIER SHARE OF CHIEF'S ESTATE... NEITHER DID THEY PICK CALLS FROM THEIR FATHER.  


    The gardener's daughter held my hand one day  and thanked  me and say "... daddy , why does my mother hate Chief and you ..." l was shocked, . Hate me ? She nodded."... Where is your mother?..."  I asked.. "...She is in the Servant's Quarters,,,,,",  she replied... So l went there and met her mother.  She was in her early 50s. Ekeete was her only child,. Her husband died 6 years before Chief suffered stroke.  When her husband was very  sick Chief  refused to help and was owing him 3  months salary.  He died.  Is was after his death,  Chief paid his widow the salary owed her husband.  I walked up to her and said .."  madam , l have been in this house since, you never came out to see who is in the compound,,." Before l could finish my sentence, she said ,.,. " God punish you and that your Chief, l only allow my daughter to see and care for him because of God,... " l was offended but l was ministered to by the spirit,  so l calmed down and said  ...".. madam why do you hate me ? That same Chief l hate him .


Why attack me ? ..." l told her daughter to go back to the house l wanted to talk to her mother alone . The Sweet child "obeyed"  me or so l thought.  I held the hands of the gardener's wife. Her name is Mary.  I squeeze it hard . She grimaced.  She was in pains.  I then told her " ...  "... So you want to tell me that Chief raped you? You want to tell me he did not give you money and it was not voluntary..? "   She burst into tears.  Mary had, had sex with Chief on numerous  occasions and Ekeete was Chief"s daughter . That much she told me . And Chief knew . Why did he set his dogs on his own daughter? . She begged me not to tell her daughter but her daughter had heard everything..she was hiding somewhere and heard all... Chief NEVER recovered.  He died 1 year after but l brought him to justice.  

 

   I confronted him with the gardner's wife's allegations and he agreed.  He agreed to do DNA. She was his daughter,  DNA confirmed, l begged Chief to do right with her. I pleaded with him.  I knelt down to beg him on one knee . Before he died, l brought a Pastor to see him and pray with him . I brought an imam to see him too . He felt more comfortable with the lmam for reasons best known to him . 

    

     On his instructions l prepared a Will . He gave ALL of his remaining estate to his daughter, Ekeete. But l also did this - l prepared a Deed of Assignment for all the other houses and real estate while Chief was alive and registered them in his daughter's name.  Chief Alex paid heavily. 

  

   After Chief's death,  I told the family the kind of burial Chief prescribed, and if not done, no Will shall be read. They  were expecting to inherit more properties . I told them that Chief want them to spend not less than N46m and buy 1 Bus each for some 2 Churches and 2 Mosques. They did. The burial was a carnival.  After the burial l read the Will in my Office in the presence of 3 mobile policemen as my Security. Chief  had disowned ALL of them , ALL of THEM and officially acknowledged Ekeete and her mother... nor be here when fight start oo.,. I had to secure Ekeete and her mother when the fight started. Chief Alex had opened an account for Ekeete with the assistance of the lmam and deposited all his cash there but gave the ATM to his daughter,  Ekeete to hold . She deposited and withdrew money on his instructions. 


        In all my years as a legal practitioner,  l have seen men/ women  make fatal mistakes.  Even lawyers make worse mistakes in their family lives.  You see that big edifice we build and sweat to impress friends and family with , if we're lucky from no where a stranger will own it one day , sold by an irresponsible child. If we are not lucky rodents and snakes shall occupy them and strangers will tell evil tales about us .Do good .  The children of these days dont have the same interest as we do . And even if they do , not in the same manner. DO NOT  make enemies because you want to give your children the best of luxuries. The finest of cars and biggest of houses . Dont  kill yourself because your children must go to expensive schools.  Let them go to the Schools you can afford. We must save for our old age when our children may see us as a burden or liability and refuse to pick our phone calls yet weep and claim the "Chief mourners" position when we die..You see your wife, ( for the men ) one of your friends will have sex with her even before your first year memorial service when you die. DO NOT fret over what you cannot afford to give to her .You see those children of ours? Within 6 months of our demise and burial , they will start calling their mother's lover, "daddy" when we  have not even rested in peace and our decay process, upon death, is not even complete.  You see our daughters  within a year after our death, she will bring her lover to sit on the seat specially meant for us in our lifetime when you played Lord of the her mother"s pussy and manor...


DO NOT  think your handsome driver cannot be your wife's lover when we die even now sef  - so ?  FOR  women , dont kill yourself over possessory right over a husband who is a community penis. The ways of most men are perverse. Even now, your husband maybe dating your best friend and she plotting to take over your position upon your death. Be wise . Enjoy the best of the land . Enjoy the profit of your labour . Betrayal is more painful than a vicious stab . 

  

  So, live well.. take good care of yourself.  Dont gather things that the "Vultures"  will devour and desecrate your memory. Support a charity like STEVE JOBS adviced and  MOBOLAJI BANK - ANTHONY did... Help the poor around you , you never know who will be around you to lift your head up when your children are too busy to pick even your calls... 

  

  Does my frankness offend you?  Dont take it to heart.

 A word is enough for the wise....

 


  LESSON 1 - FRET ABOUT NOTHING,  GOD SHALL LOOK AFTER YOU 

  LESSON 2 - DO CHARITY- CHARITY COVERS A MULTITUDE OF SINS..

ÀJẸKÙ: A TRUE LIFE STORY OF A STUDENT OF UNIVERSITY OF IBADAN YEARS BACK

ÀJẸKÙ: A TRUE LIFE STORY OF A STUDENT OF UNIVERSITY OF IBADAN YEARS BACK

ÀJẸKÙ (Left Over)

No matter the insults you gave him, he would smile it off. He had developed very thick skin for insults and humiliation.


This young boy was an undergraduate of the University of Ibadan in the early 90s.


His poverty was almost contagious. He had no friend.


One of the university lecturers mocked him in a crowded class. It was Chemistry 101.


'You thought the university is like a secondary school where they wear uniforms. Since the beginning of the session, I've not seen you change that red shirt for a day.'


The whole lecture theatre popularly called CBN roared with derisive laughter.


The insulted boy's teeth managed to peep under his lips for a frustrated smile.


However, few sensitive students could feel the deep hurt the unwarranted public embarrassment had inflicted on his self esteem.


Immediately after the lecture, Andrew moved close to the boy and asked him series of questions.


Andrew decided to take him to Dugbe market to buy him some few affordable shirts and trousers. 


While they were in the bus at Adamasingba stadium en route Mokola round about, an incident attracted passers-by.


A newly born baby wrapped in a shawl was put in a biscuits carton and laid beside the stadium's shopping complex. It had been abandoned.


It was then Wonuola decided to narrate his story to Andrew.


'If I had money, I would do all I could to adopt this feeble little being. We had similar story.'


'I was abandoned by my mother when I was only 3 months old. I heard that she is now in Obuasi Ghana where she has remarried'.


'My dad tried all he could to raise me alone. However, my mystery began when my step mum came into my world when I turned seven.' He concluded.


He narrated how he chose to live with his paternal grandmother when he became ten. She was only a petty trader and he had to hawk in the streets most of the time in order for them to eat.


His father barely remembered that he  or the grandmother still existed.


He was in the university by determination and hope.


Wọnúọlá squatted in Nnamdi Azikwe Hall while Andrew lived in Sultan Bello Hall.


Each time he went to visit Andrew, he would unashamedly request for the food crumbs and left over.


It was not long before they gave him the nickname 'Àjẹ́kù ( which means left over in Yorùbá).


The name glued on him like horns stuck on ram's  head for the rest of his stay in the university.


Only those who are close to him knew his real name. He became popular.

*******************

Andrew did not bargain for this. His promotion had been rapid in the oil company he was working with. He was the chief geologist. The great global economic melt down around 2010 affected his American owned company. They folded up.


All efforts to get a new job in Lagos proved abortive. Andrew had to shift his base to Abuja.


He wrote applications upon application letters and submitted his CV to places they were not required. For close to a year, nothing was forth coming.


'Hello, am I speaking with Mr Andrew Ikpomwonsa?' A sweet woman's voice Inquired from the other end.


'You have been shortlisted for an interview with Able Hands Oil, Maitama, Abuja.

Kindly come with your credentials tomorrow Wednesday by 11 a.m. I hope the time and date is okay by you?' The voice inquired.


Andrew gave his consent to honour the interview.


On getting to the venue of the interview, he almost gave up when he found out that they needed just one person for the vacant position.


They have invited twenty other equally qualified offshore oil exploration team leader.


Another turn off for him was the multiple protocols he had to observe with the security personnel, H.R. department, and secretaries before he could see the Chief Executive Officer of the company.


When he eventually met the CEO, he looked at him closely for like five minutes. The CEO did the same.


Andrew opened the tap of his tear glands. Warm tears rolled down his cheeks.


He opened his mouth like in a movie slow motion to talk:


'À-jẹ...' He became choked.


The CEO who was beaming with smile helped him to complete the word that had stuck in his mouth:

That was the last time he ever called him Àjẹkù. Wonuola gave him a job. They became friends and gist partners....


Àjẹkù or those who know his story might be reading this. Once-upon-a-time sorrow has turned into laughter.... Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning 


The Lord is turning our situation around for good. Give no room for suicide thought or depression.

The Lord is saying concerning you...' all those who despise you will bow down at your feet


No human, living or dead has had anything close to the misfortune and hopelessness of Job, yet he triumphed at the end of it all. Calamity will not be your portion


There is hope for a tree that has been cut down; it can come back to life and sprout. Even though its roots grow old, and its stump dies in the ground, at the scent of water it will bud and sprout again like a new seedling


You are definitely worth a billion times more than a tree in the sight of the Living God.  No matter how hopeless and frustrating you think your situation is, DO NOT GIVE UP... you will rise again 


Thanks for reading through.

ÀJẸKÙ (Left Over)

No matter the insults you gave him, he would smile it off. He had developed very thick skin for insults and humiliation.


This young boy was an undergraduate of the University of Ibadan in the early 90s.


His poverty was almost contagious. He had no friend.


One of the university lecturers mocked him in a crowded class. It was Chemistry 101.


'You thought the university is like a secondary school where they wear uniforms. Since the beginning of the session, I've not seen you change that red shirt for a day.'


The whole lecture theatre popularly called CBN roared with derisive laughter.


The insulted boy's teeth managed to peep under his lips for a frustrated smile.


However, few sensitive students could feel the deep hurt the unwarranted public embarrassment had inflicted on his self esteem.


Immediately after the lecture, Andrew moved close to the boy and asked him series of questions.


Andrew decided to take him to Dugbe market to buy him some few affordable shirts and trousers. 


While they were in the bus at Adamasingba stadium en route Mokola round about, an incident attracted passers-by.


A newly born baby wrapped in a shawl was put in a biscuits carton and laid beside the stadium's shopping complex. It had been abandoned.


It was then Wonuola decided to narrate his story to Andrew.


'If I had money, I would do all I could to adopt this feeble little being. We had similar story.'


'I was abandoned by my mother when I was only 3 months old. I heard that she is now in Obuasi Ghana where she has remarried'.


'My dad tried all he could to raise me alone. However, my mystery began when my step mum came into my world when I turned seven.' He concluded.


He narrated how he chose to live with his paternal grandmother when he became ten. She was only a petty trader and he had to hawk in the streets most of the time in order for them to eat.


His father barely remembered that he  or the grandmother still existed.


He was in the university by determination and hope.


Wọnúọlá squatted in Nnamdi Azikwe Hall while Andrew lived in Sultan Bello Hall.


Each time he went to visit Andrew, he would unashamedly request for the food crumbs and left over.


It was not long before they gave him the nickname 'Àjẹ́kù ( which means left over in Yorùbá).


The name glued on him like horns stuck on ram's  head for the rest of his stay in the university.


Only those who are close to him knew his real name. He became popular.

*******************

Andrew did not bargain for this. His promotion had been rapid in the oil company he was working with. He was the chief geologist. The great global economic melt down around 2010 affected his American owned company. They folded up.


All efforts to get a new job in Lagos proved abortive. Andrew had to shift his base to Abuja.


He wrote applications upon application letters and submitted his CV to places they were not required. For close to a year, nothing was forth coming.


'Hello, am I speaking with Mr Andrew Ikpomwonsa?' A sweet woman's voice Inquired from the other end.


'You have been shortlisted for an interview with Able Hands Oil, Maitama, Abuja.

Kindly come with your credentials tomorrow Wednesday by 11 a.m. I hope the time and date is okay by you?' The voice inquired.


Andrew gave his consent to honour the interview.


On getting to the venue of the interview, he almost gave up when he found out that they needed just one person for the vacant position.


They have invited twenty other equally qualified offshore oil exploration team leader.


Another turn off for him was the multiple protocols he had to observe with the security personnel, H.R. department, and secretaries before he could see the Chief Executive Officer of the company.


When he eventually met the CEO, he looked at him closely for like five minutes. The CEO did the same.


Andrew opened the tap of his tear glands. Warm tears rolled down his cheeks.


He opened his mouth like in a movie slow motion to talk:


'À-jẹ...' He became choked.


The CEO who was beaming with smile helped him to complete the word that had stuck in his mouth:


'...ku'.


That was the last time he ever called him Àjẹkù. Wonuola gave him a job. They became friends and gist partners....


Àjẹkù or those who know his story might be reading this. Once-upon-a-time sorrow has turned into laughter.... Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning

Daily Motivational Quote For Today Tuesday 5th October, 2021: Your past can't be altered, your future doesn't deserve the punishment

Daily Motivational Quote For Today Tuesday 5th October, 2021: Your past can't be altered, your future doesn't deserve the punishment

Never let your past experiences harm your future. Your past can't be altered and your future doesn't deserve the punishment.


 Sometimes not all open doors lead to opportunities. We've got to close some doors in our lives because they don't lead us anywhere.


 Forgiveness is not just for other people, it's for you too. Forgive yourself, move on, and try to do better next time


Focus on your strengths, not your weaknesses. Focus on your character, not your reputation. Focus on your blessings, not your misfortunes.


Tell yourself you love yourself, even if you dont believe it, because this is when you REALLY need to hear yourself say it.


“Don’t take things for granted because they might not be there tomorrow.”


Always wear a smile, not because life is full a reasons to smile, but because your smile itself could be a reason for others to smile.


Forgiveness is not something we do for other people. We do it for ourselves to get well and move on


Without pain, there would be no suffering, without suffering we would never learn from over mistakes. To make it right, pain and suffering is the key to all windows, without it, there is no way of life.

Daily Motivational Quote For Today Wednesday 22nd September, 2021: Never forget who you are

Daily Motivational Quote For Today Wednesday 22nd September, 2021: Never forget who you are





Every second of every day someone is going through the worst moments of their lives. If today's just an ordinary day for you, consider that to be a blessing.


Don't let your enemies words control your emotions. An enemy should never have that much power over you.


Never forget who you are. Only you can satisfy your needs and lead your life. Never lose sight of your humanity with all its frailties. Be strong and never be led, instead be the leader of your own personal journey.


Do not trust people who are full of themselves. They try to make themselves sound so important that you can't live without them. In truth, they spend so much time focused on themselves they are virtually worthless when it comes to really getting anything done.

Daily Motivational Quote For Today Saturday 11th September 2021: What is wrong is to quit






Taking a few moments to be thankful for what is going well in your life is an excellent way to dive into the day with a positive attitude.


Two things define you, your patience when you have nothing, and your attitude when you have everything.


It is not wrong to feel down or disappointed, what is wrong is to quit. As long you are doing the right thing you are on the right track, and you will succeed by God's will.


Mistakes are committed by STRONG people and WEAK people as well... Only difference is STRONG people admit their mistake. Whereas WEAK ones look for excuses.

Always be strong enough to let go, and be wise enough to wait for what you deserve.


Don't rely on someone else for your happiness and self-worth. Only you can be responsible for that. If you can't love and respect yourself – no one else will be able to make that happen. Accept who you are – completely; the good and the bad – and make changes as YOU see fit – not because you think someone else wants you to be different.

Success is what you achieve, and beauty what you inherit. So it's up to you, you give importance to inheritance or success. Beauty you lose with time but success you can get more with time.


Never let the irrelevant opinion of other people cloud your vision of yourself.

ENVY: A reminders of what we lack - Femi Ogunsanwo

ENVY: A reminders of what we lack - Femi Ogunsanwo

Proverbs 14:30- "A calm, undisturbed mind and heart are the life and health of the body, but envy, jealousy, and wrath are like rottenness of the bones"
**********************************************

Life is full of reminders of what we lack. There is always someone who is more successful, more talented, more attractive, more accomplished or more advanced in meeting milestones than we are. We encounter these people every day, in fact, they are often our friends, family members, colleagues and acquitances. Sometimes these encounters can leave us with a bitter taste in our mouths and a green glow in our eyes.

Envy is a state of desiring something that someone else possesses. It’s a vicious emotion that can crush self-esteem, inspire efforts to undermine successes of others, destroy their reputation or even cause us to lash out violently. It makes us feel horrible. Na the typical description of bad belle (ętanu in Yoruba)

But there is help and way out of this nasty feeling. If you envy your productive colleague, family member, friend or an acquitance, you may find that you could be more productive yourself if you learned to manage your time better. You may even be able to get a few tips from him or her. Don’t forget to count your own blessings. As the saying goes, envy is counting the other fellow’s blessings instead of your own, whereas God Almighty on the throne in the celestial will give unto you what you ask from him in prayers and supplications

Yoruba people will say "Falana gbo ti ę, ti ara ę ni la gbo". (Mr Falana mind your own flipping business, your personal success, growth and development should be paramount to you)
