Academic Pursuit

I became a benefactor to an assistant teacher and the form 4 who had evening studies, He dedicated all of them totally to me. I taught in the evening so everybody referred to me, including teachers, my class mates and the whole school. It was quite interesting and the first thing I learnt is that you can be a leader without a position.

My Family Life

I have only one wife. I think that I became a born-again believer in my late teens. At about eighteen (18) years, I was certain and gave my life to the Lord.

I love you, will you like to marry me?” She looked at my face quietly and said, “Yes!” Wow! That was the beginning of our wonderful courtship.

if we are marrying as Christians, divorce is out, if you see her commit adultery don’t tell me, pray for me. I am going to marry her for life
