Age and size are only numbers. It is the attitude you bring to clothes that make the difference. Blessed is the man whose increase is evident in his wisdom, knowledge and maturity.

You do not rush to celebrate great men, with understanding, highly intelligent and a cocoon of  ideas. No matter how low and humble he present himself before you, you have to and must give him respect and honour for the stuff he is made of.

I took permission in the office to shop for spices and ingredient and will not only give a perfect aroma to my food but provide the needed vitamins and nutritions as I serve Hon Engr Malike Okino today in celebrating and rejoicing with him as he top up…Happy Birthday.

Hon, I know you know, and I understand you’re aware of our pain and predicament but give me your listen ears, once again as I run my software for encouragement, as you add up today, and show you another way producing your type here before is too late.

Bo Bennett made my job easy as he wrote and I quote: “Those who improve with age embrace the power of personal growth and personal achievement and begin to replace youth with wisdom, innocence with understanding, and lack of purpose with self-actualization.”

Engr Okino, it is indeed a tough journeying to get here, it cost all, you went through trial, persecution from those you raised,  rejected by those you brought close, hated and names calling from left and right…but still amazing how you were able  to carrying  all these together to push and strive for excellence, and still make yourself available to empower and contribute your token for the betterment of our society. I say to you, Happy Birthday.

Somebody challenged me during the general election while championing your project and before my amiable romance with Barr Natasha. He said, “why are you so addicted to Engr Okino? What has he promised you? Or have you collected anything from him?” He took me through clans crisis and I shook him off, he told me about his marriage bounce him back. Then he said to me, “…you must have been bribe with huge  amount of money to do all these.”

Today, is an opportunity for me to answer for myself. I am a believer of knowledge, wisdom and and skills. Wherever I found those things, I glue myself there and Engr Okino possess it. He gave me no kobo to do what I did but he gave me something worth more than money. Guess what? Access to his money (ideas). My father told me, “if you see a man who is ready to show you the way do not despise him, but humble yourself to know the way – skills and wisdom gotten can never be taken back. Be wise in your dealings with men”. This wisdom can never depart from me.

Engr Okino, this is the message. A wealthy man without laudable project to point to the next generation may end his name within his generation, but a wealthy man who duplicate himself across the society will never fade away without notice by the next generation. This is not to say you are not doing or imparting people, I am simply saying… We want more of you. A laudable investment in the society that can stand the test of time life(s) changing and giving hope to the hopeless…Yes You Can Do It

I hear you saying, Ogo’Ogu, come out in a plain language… what are you saying? Okay, My Engr, here is the plain talk.

It is crystal clear that the rich have carved an edge for themselves in the society. I need you to operate in the manner that will speak more of you in the future and to the next generation. Differentiate yourself from others because you are blessed, young and intelligent among your contemporaries. You must operate with that mindset and as a digital leader you are…happy birthday.

You can establish Okino Education Project (OEP) where education of less privileged can be taken care of. You Can Do It. Happy Birthday.

You can establish Okino Health Trust Project (OHTP) where token can be put aside to assist those who have health challenges in the community can be minister to by your team….Yes You Can Do It.

We are nobody regardless of our wisdom, wealth, skills and influence even if we travel round the whole world if our community at large benefit nothing from our skills…Happy New Year of Spreading Out The More.

Engr, I think you can also intervene in the water problem facing the society. How? Get the equipment/tools and subsidize it for community especially areas that is suffering of water, and in no time water problem will be over in Kogi Central. You can called it Okino Water Project Initiative. You Can Do it…Happy Birthday.

This message is not just for Engr Okino alone, other leaders can take a hint from it and put it at work. It is time we redefine our riches, it is time our wealthy men and women, and business men began to look at a community with government and see how they can use their God given wealth, wisdom, skills to create enabling environment for the people. Remember naked you came into this world and it is certain that in naked we shall all return. Be a blessing to your humanity now. Happy birthday.

He challenges me and put me on my feet to run more race. Leaders who take pleasure given you fish always does not wish you success rather want you to remain a servant or follower for life. Engr Okino is a teacher, a motivator, and idea himself…Happy New You.

Ladies and gentlemen, the truth I tell you, we are in a society where no wonder Aam Curtis wrote: ”Nobody trusts anyone in authority because the have bastardize and abuse the trust. It is one of the main features of our age. Wherever you look, there are lying politicians, crooked bankers, corrupt police officers, cheating journalists and double-dealing media barons, sinister children’s entertainers, rotten and greedy energy companies, and out-of-control security services.”

‘Age’ is the acceptance of a term of years. But maturity is the glory of years. As you grow in knowledge, wisdom and skills, may your glory been seen in other…Happy Birthday.

I am confident that  as you progress in this journeying, you will surround yourself with good people; surround yourself with positivity and people who are going to challenge you to make you better, and to leave a better legacy here on earth…Happy Birthday.

This message is from me to you. I cherish the relationship and friendship I have with you. I salute your passion for a just society, your courage to speak the truth where it matters, and faith to keep the hope rolling that one day, just one day our land will have the best and the fittest to championing the affairs of humanity…See You At The Top. Happy Birthday.

– Ogo’Ogu MD.
