Naija FM OAP, comedian and MC, Isaac Osamoje, popularly known as Osam (pictured left) is a year older today and has written a powerful birthday message that I think y’all should read. Find it below…
“As I add another year, I really begin to ponder deeply where we as a nation are coming from and heading to. Have we lost direction? Have we underdeveloped ourselves to a point of no return?
What is the difference between a hungry man that steals bread from a stall and a corrupt government official that loots unthinkable amounts from the treasury?
What is the difference between an irate mob burning a suspect to death with tyres and fire and the Boko Haram scourge killing people at will?
What is the difference between a man murdering another with a gunshot to the head at point blank range, and a Liberian man and Nigerian woman running amok infecting people deliberately with a deadly virus?
What is the difference between two elder statesmen catapulting insults at each other and two talented, well to do young musicians doing same?
These are but a few of life’s eye openers.
The Bible,Quoran,and customary laws were brought out for a reason.
I list out kidnapping, sabotage, terrorism, viral epidemic as a glaring path to destruction.
Worse yet, after all we have gone through as a nation, Civil war, Inter-tribal marriages , division of states, Nobel Laureate win, musical accomplishments, film industry establishment, telecommunication growth, some people have the nerve to call for the division of this great country of ours.
I SAY NO!We are a people, and for us as Nigerians we have come this far and we can go further.As I add a year to my age today (August 19), I pray that God will add more prosperous years to you reading this piece.This next step is for you to adopt as a greeting as a people,locally and internationally, whether Ebola greeting or social!
Just raise the index finger of your right hand to represent UNITY, the two-finger sign of your left hand to represent PEACE
Join them together and ANYBODY facing you will see the ‘N’ sign representing #NAIJA4LIFE
Everybody is joining in.WE ARE UNITY.WE ARE PEACE.WE ARE NIGERIA.
THIS IS AFRICA.P.S Happy Birthday to me.I Believe.@osamntsc
