Don’t waste your time fighting hard when you know the battle ain’t yours but the Lords’…
At a time when it looks all but chaotic, a time when all hope seems lost, and when all you can see are but shadows in the dark…do not despair for there is none else besides Him.
I am the Nigerian dream, though torn between two worlds, I know the value and strong-will I possess. I know that the gold in me is greater than the oil in this great nation.
