Dear Compatriots, I come to you today as an advocate, whose mission is to pass vital information to his people especially as 2019 General Elections draw near.
This message will be directed to my able talented youths in the Central Senatorial District of Kogi state and Kogi state at large.
My joy today as a Kogite is you (The Youths) because I can be bold anywhere in the world that my people are watching me and I must play by the role and value our fathers left for us.
Come with me as I speak on a message titled: 2019 ELECTIONS, YOUTHS BE MINDFUL OF THOSE WHO ARM YOU TO DESTROY YOUR FUTURE FOR A TOKEN.
It was Ezekiel who received this instruction from the Lord in their days which have become much more useful to our present generation.
I was stroked and motivated to speak to my generation by this portion of the holy book.
He called and I answered… “son of man, I have made you a watch man unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them the warning for me. When I say to the wicked, thou shall surely die; and thou givest not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require in your hand. Yet if you warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity, but you have delivered yourself.”
We live in an age when the likes of American Senator Barbara Boxer are calling us all, as stake-holders in the new world and democracy, to heed the clarion call once made by the legendary American Human Rights Activist, Dr Marthin Luther King Jnr. Urging us to lend our voices to the fight against the societal ills of our times, which he warned…”If we do not act, we shall surely be dragged down the long, dark and shameful corridors of time reserved for those who possess strength without sight.”
I was devastated when the news hit the social media about the two young men who were assassinated in Kogi Central Senatorial District…. Along Agassa road in Kogi state.
While still trying to come to terms with the news of the death of these young men, Another news broke out reporting the death of Erudite Kabiru Etuydaiye who slumped and died. At this juncture, depression took over me.
I Shall visit the sad tale of Erudite Kabiru soon as I call the government and the leaders he eruditely served in conducts and in acts before his death to come to the aid of the family he left behind. May their souls Rest In Peace…Amen
Ladies and gentlemen, you may ask, Ogo’ogu why the pain and the worry after all they aren’t your close friends or relatives?
But I have these to say to you.
Those who have solution to your problem may not be those you called your friends or family. The death of one youth is two steps backward to a society.
Each time we lose soul(s) in this nation it leaves me shaken and aggrieved for days…. Knowing that these deaths were avoidable.
Great youths of Kogi Central Senatorial District and Kogi state at large, the future of our dear state is gloomy, we are reducing in population every day yet our leaders are more concerned with the next election than life. “History wouldn’t have to repeat itself if we adhered to her lessons” I beg of you give me your attention because I can’t afford to lose for anyone for politicians who care less about us (youths).
Democracy is not and cannot be sustained by the blood of our gallant youths who are supposed to take on the mantle of leadership in the nearest future. Position(s) gained through bloodshed will cost bloodshed to be sustained but our leaders feel their blood is sacred, and the youths should always be victims of this sacrifice. It time to say NO TO VIOLENCE!
But think about this my distinguished youths of Kogi central and Kogi state at large, imagine if Governor Yahaya Bello was killed in the crisis before 2015 election who would have been our governor today?
What about Prince Abdulkareem Onyekehi- SA on Job creation and SME’s, if he were to be murdered before 2015 election, what would be the fate of those benefiting from his current position?
The likes of Abdulkareem Asuku – DG Protocol Government house, how will it have been? considering those who are sleeping well just because of his present position
Hon Petra Onyegbule – Chief Press Secretary to the governor, consider her impact in the society and think what would it have looked like without her.
What about Sunday Faleke – SSA special duties?
Olu Majek – SSS to Governor on GYB connect Kabba-Bunu/ Ijumu Federal constituency
Odaudu Joel Minister – SSA on new media…
Why killing your future for a token that will not serve you for a week?
Youths wake up and reject any leader who think all you are good for is to use you to cause crisis just to pave way for his/her selfish ambition(s).
2019 is here; do not kill your future.
Do not kill your future Governor
Do not kill your future Chief Press Secretary to Governor,
Do not kill your future SSA Special Duties
Do not kill your future SA on Job creation and SME’s,
Do not kill your future DG Protocol Government House,
My assignment is to challenge us, for posterity, not just because it will judge us, but because its narration can rid demons that torment the oppressed, shock the complacent and intransigent into self-reflection, and inspire feats of human perseverance and will, make crook straight and cause the wicked make a u-turn for the benefit of the society.
When they come to you asking you to go cause disturbance or crisis, simply tell them,
I CAN’T KILL OR HURT MY FUTURE FOR SOMEONE’S AMBITION… LET THEM SEND THEIR CHILDREN
We must therefore, all rise up to this call, not minding whether or not if our counsel or action in this crucial time would be understood or misunderstood, accepted or rejected, by the blood thirsty system of politics we practice. Our duty is to speak the truth which the Lord himself has put in our lips.
Stay tuned as I run the same software for our political leaders and all aspirants in central Kogi state at large because they have much role to play in this clarion call for social peace.
God Bless You.
Together We Will Run Election That Is Crises Free Come 2019
