MORE RIVERS TO CROSS

MORE RIVERS TO CROSS.         9/03/2021 Good day my brethrens. I have partly come to the end of my stay at OWERRI, IMO State. A recent transfer published last week, took me to Okigwe to head the Drivers licence Centre there. Hence, I will no longer coordinate the affairs of this Alumnus as necessitated by this transfer.

In this season of electioneering, I will draw from the archives, the words of former President Jonathan that remains instructive till this day and lessons we can learn from his understanding of life, not just politics. The quotes are: ·          " I am the most abused and insulted president in the world, but when I leave office, you will all remember me for the total freedom you enjoyed under my government."  ·          My political ambition is not worth the blood of any Nigerian. ·          In the comfort of our offices, let us not forget that majority of our people live below the poverty line. ·          Any society or country that closes the vital valves of its democratic space cannot develop at a reasonable pace. ·          Where there is no opportunity for one man one vote, there
