Sulaimon Hollathemegee shares with Mates & the world; in this inspiring and challenging write-up; and we;'re sure reading this is worth the while.

Read On and Leave a comment:

The hope and lesson for the best life lies solely in our strength and drive to write the wrong in our past, life is a continuous task which demands a continuous exercise and process. Building a strong a virile society is a task which does not only lies in the  hands of few elected leaders but also an act of every citizen and indeed every masses. Our actions, negligence and idleness towards individuals are what have cost us our place as a nation and also as individual. We are a society where we cannot vouch for the best of life and commune (where we live) like destitute when we should live “on top of the world”. This is one thing which has plunge us into a state of political anarchy, insecurity, economic instability, tribal intolerance, religious violence and also moral down trend.

These actions from us indeed extract our social virtual by making us infidel of ethics and moral virtues. My fear for Nigeria as a nation and for individuals is not being in a state of fear but of disarray. The agony of the Nigeria’s civil war between 1967 to 1970, the pain of annulment of June 12, 1993 presidential election and the struggle thereafter, the chaotic and reign to terror of the Abacha regime and the trending corruption which is “everly” thriving in our society will not be the worst that we would meet ourselves, if we fail to curtail the blame game which everyone has embarked on in our society.

It's high time we fought our fear by doing the right things, by stating, writing and upholding the right moral-values; and these not by the constitutional defence but by social and ethical defence. We can kill our fear if we use the law of commonwealth and the Levant Ian’s theory of Thomas Hobbs which states "Don't do to another what you fear for yourself"

It's high time we respected the activities and the involvement of every individual; it’s high time leaders lead with aura and positive character and followers follow with respect and total commitment. The earlier we do this, the better for everyone.

These will help save our society from a state of despair, building a strong and virile society is a task of all, let’s start acting and continue until we are there.

Anchored by: Fiyin Stephen (Tush) and extra commentary by Tush.
It’s just right for the newest council member to write an introduction. So Mojisola Araba writes these words about Magic...(her words)

“When I heard about the group, I thought to myself, he must be a retired, wealthy, old man to put this people up for Charity. But first full sight at him, I understood Lami's intimidation.

Looking after mates he does not know from Adam. His passion moulded us together as a family.
A glance and you'd think he can't finish a pack of Indomie. Blessed with a lovely wife and two soldiers that can be taller than Lami one day” (Lami, na joke ooo)
