PRE…INDEPENDENCE…POST

I, The Preacher, prepares for his nation’s independence and I shall share my thoughts in three treatises, Pre(PROLOGUE).. Independence(THE ACT) and Post(EPILOGUE).

Today, I shall speak in PROLOGUE, being the eve of the day of independence celebration. Tomorrow, I shall speak in THE ACT and the day after the celebrations have ended, I shall speak in EPILOGUE…

PROLOGUE
I, The Preacher shall today don the toga of a prophet, that he may say with oracular precision that the SALVATION of the WORLD is in HER PRECIOUS CHILDREN…

When the WORLD finds the necessary HUMILITY to agree with William Wordsworth that the CHILD is the FATHER of the MAN, then her SALVATION begins…

When the WORLD finds the uncommon GRACE to share the IDEOLOGY of Abraham Lincoln that the FATE of the entire HUMANITY is in the HANDS of the CHILD, then her SALVATION begins…

When the WORLD finds the rare COURAGE to accept as eternal TRUTH as declared by Pablo Casals that the CHILD is a MARVEL and We must work to make the WORLD WORTHY of her CHILDREN, then her SALVATION begins…

When the WORLD finds the divine WISDOM to accept the words of Nelson Mandela that there can be no keener revelation of a society’s SOUL than the way in which it treats its CHILDREN, then her SALVATION begins…

When the WORLD finds the divine MEEKNESS to give thoughtful thoughts to the postulation of Maria Montessori that the things the CHILD sees are not just remembered, they form part of his SOUL, then her SALVATION begins…

When the WORLD finds the gentle HEART to give unfettered expression to the DIVINELY-INSPIRED words of Joyce Meyer that if you help a CHILD, you will not spent years repairing adults, then her SALVATION begins…

When the WORLD finds the unusual COMMITMENT to embrace as an inevitable CREED, the words of Franklin Delano Roosevelt that we cannot always build the future for our youth but we can build our youth for the future, then her SALVATION begins…

When the WORLD finds the great understanding to accept and practice the word of Nelson Mandela that to be the FATHER of a NATION is a great honour, but to be the FATHER of a FAMILY is a GREATER JOY, then her SALVATION begin…

When the Personal WORLD of The Preacher, Nigeria, on the eve of her independence celebration and always finds the rare COURAGE to accept the words of The Preacher that Think the CHILD…Think TODAY…Think the FUTURE, then and very then her long awaited SALVATION begins…

Do have an INSPIRED Independent Day Eve…

Yours IN THE BEST INTEREST OF THE PRECIOUS AFRICAN CHILD,
The Preacher

THE GLORIOUS GOSPEL ACCORDING TO CHILD RIGHTS/PROTECTION & FAMILY STRENGTHENING Chapter 5

1. I, The Preacher, whose infirmities are always before me and Him, before Who all things are naked and defenseless, Who says to me, as I rest in His everlasting arms, ‘My strength is made manifest in your weakness.’

2. I, The Preacher, I am today burdened, having committed the most part of my adult life to the cause of pleading the cause of the African CHILD, which is the cause of TODAY and the cause of the FUTURE and above all the cause of GOD.

3. My heart is full of matters, which come to me by virtue of my sojourn with the precious children of African, and those who care for them.

3. My burden today concerns the vision of my heart and it is a vision, which bothers me to my marrow.

4. My burden today is about the woes of a continent, who sacrifices her future by neglecting her TODAY, her GLORY and her precious CHILDREN.

5. I, The Preacher, I am burdened today by the Winner-Takes-All system entrenched in our society, the rich takes all and the poor are left with nothing, not even crumbs. The rich man in the story of Lazarus was kinder than our society today, yet he was sentenced to eternal damnation.

6. The number one threat to the protection of our precious children and the family saddled with the responsibility to protect them today is abject poverty into which they are born in their majority. When the existence of primary and secondary caregivers are already abused, how then shall they not by necessity produce after their kind?

7. Majority of our caregivers live under the siege of abject poverty with no access to basic needs like food, healthcare, education and shelter. Public or social services do not exist to serve the people, yet by the so-called So-called Social Contract, exiting between the state and the people, the welfare and the security of the people shall be the primary aim of government.

8. In Africa, a Third World continent, respect for dignity of human person seems not to be our priority. We call many people in Africa, the less-privileged or under privileged.

9. I, The Preacher declares to you today that there are no such people in our Third World Continent known as the less-privileged or under privileged. For how shall a man, woman or child, whose inalienable rights have been outrightly denied be referred to as the less-privileged or under privileged? It only those whose basic needs have been met and who rights are respected that you may say are denied of privileges.

10. So who do we have? We have the denied; the abused, the neglected, ‘the wretched of the earth’, in the words of Franz Fanon. These ones are out of ignorance or guilt of the upper crust of society called the less-privileged or under privileged, when they throw their periodic festival of TOKENISM, supplying their basic needs, without any plan to teach them how to fish or at least how to demand for their rightful share of communal fish.

11. By the deliberate design of the system, the precious children of the lower crust of will serve the precious children of the upper crust of society, noting that the fault is not of the precious children, but of the system that pitch them against one another.

12. And unknown to us all the precious children of the lower crust constitute a sure and lethal threat to all of the society.

13. I, The Preacher today invite you to share this burden with me, not by leading a festival of TOKENISM as many do but by getting the message to all of our areas of influence that it is time to strengthen the Families of Africa by either closing or obliterating the gap between the rich and poor.

14. I, The Preacher shall shed more light on the solutions on the days to come. I remain Sober on my KNEES today. Do have an INSPIRED week.

THE GLORIOUS GOSPEL ACCORDING TO CHILD RIGHTS/PROTECTION & FAMILY STRENGTHENING Chapter 4:

1. I, The Preacher has used this life for close to 5 decades and I have divided my life into 3 seasons.

2. My first season was between age 0-18, when I was born into the hands of mother and father, who meant so well for me, but because they lacked KNOWLEDGE, SKILLS and ATTITUDE to preserve my CHILDHOOD for functional ADULTHOOD, I was subjected to untold abuses in their hands and those in whose hands they gave me to for care.

3. The handlers of my first season produced after their own kind. They interpreted my CHILDHOOD after the order of their own CHILDHOOD, which never existed anyway.

4. My second season began as I attained age 18. I was 18 and became an adult by the chronological arrangement of numbers, validated by the law of the land, but in maturity, which is the mark of real ADULTHOOD, I was yet a babe.

5. I was thrusted to FACE a world I was not PREPARED for and which was not PREPARED for my UNPREPAREDNESS and will neither have mercy on same but armed to crucify me for my inevitable malfunctioning.

6. In my second season, I was an Internally Displaced Person, the furniture of my inner being, carefully and perfectly arranged by my Creator, after the order of His IMAGE and LIKENESS, having been rearranged by my handlers and left in a state of utter DISORDER.

7. My second season is characterized by DELAYED CHILDHOOD, having suffered from THE RAIN-BEATEN CHICKEN MENTALITY, which manifest in being dirty, vulnerable, sickly, needy, and subject to self victimization.

8. But glory be to God, the Father of our LORD Jesus CHRIST, who apprehended me at the age of 27 and set me on a journey of recovery, marking the beginning of my third and present season.

9. As the LORD helps me in the last 19 years I have helped other, me being the number one GUINEA PIG in the laboratory of my message of ABUSED CHILDHOOD, TRANSFORMED ADULTHOOD.

10. In this season, I neither seek nor preach PERFECTION; God forbid, how shall we, who are not PERFECT preach PERFECTION, heaping on the head of our hearers loads that we are not able to carry ourselves?

11. What then do I preach?,I preach healing, which means building capacity under God and embracing His DIVINE VALUE SYSTEM to combat and bring to helpless neutrality the ILLS of TRUNCATED CHILDHOOD and convert same to personal STRENGTH and STORIES of PERSONAL VICTORIES to give REAL HOPE to a needy world.

12. In this season, this one thing I do, pressing forward in the glorious destiny, He assigned for me before the world began, I tell my STORY of CHANGE, which is WORK in PROGRESS, I bring our the SENSES, which are the LIFE PRINCIPLES I have learnt and are working for me in all areas of my life and I share STONES, which are instructions to my hearers.

13. I do not preach cunningly devised fables, aimed at hoodwinking my hearers to embrace a transformation that I have not tasted, for I have been with the LORD in the trenches, that I may not labour in another man’s field of assignment, but speak of things I have SEEN DIRECTLY from Him, many of which I am not permitted to share yet, things that I have TOUCHED and things that I have handled.

14. In this third season, I am called The Preacher of the Glorious Gospel According to Child RIGHTS /PROTECTION and Family STRENGTHENING, using the three seasons of my life as the formative case studies.

15. On the days of our LORD, Wednesday 28 and Thursday 29, in this month of September 2016, I shall again for two days, with the UNSTOPPABLE FORCE of PERSONAL HISTORY and VICTORIES, the mark of our UNIQUENESS and ORIGINALITY and years of field experience and professional engagements locally and internationally, preach the Glorious Gospel to leaders of institutions of learning. In the 2 days, I shall be asking and answering the question, So You Want to Run a Safe School?

16. As I remain Sober on my KNEES today, I charge you all to help spread the word, that more souls may be won to the Glorious Gospel. Do have an INSPIRED week

THE GLORIOUS GOSPEL ACCORDING TO CHILD RIGHTS/PROTECTION & FAMILY STRENGTHENING Chapter 3:

1. Today, my heart considers a matter as I think about our precious African children, in whose hands lies the present and the future of our great continent.

2. My heart considers a generation that was not raised, now saddled with the arduous responsibility of raising another as if a man/woman can give what he/she does not have.

3. My heart thinks about men and women, who are gravely sick and yet line up in their droves to donate blood out of ignorance, denial or delusion about their state of health.

4. My heart considers a continent, whose best labour is in the direction of where she has not sown.

5. My heart considers a generation of caregivers, whose priorities are misplaced on things that have no future, yet sacrificing her own future.

6. My heart considers a people, who steal from themselves and yet rejoice greatly over her bountiful loot of self-depletion.

7. My heart thinks about a generation, who has lost the bearing of their conscience to the demands of their belly, the lots of an average Third Wordier.

8. My heart thinks about a generation, who do not think in premise and precepts in accordance with universal principles of human existence, ordained by God and therefore inconsistent in words and deeds.

9. My heart thinks about a generation of primary and secondary caregivers, who do not understand the dictates of their roles and the boundaries therein and now enthrones confusion as the rule of engagement.

10. My heart thinks about a continent, who has no respect for the dignity of human person and has now enthroned abusive measures as celebrated tools of discipline.

11. My heart thinks about many pseudo ideologues, who have lost touch with the freshness of originality of thinking and solutions, who now propagate the spilled ejaculation of other men’s thoughts as their most precious possession of thinking and solutions.

12. My heart thinks about a legion of us, who bless the evil of stripping our precious children of their essence of humanity and dignity with the libation of cold and conscienceless silence.

13. My heart thinks about many of us who shed and feed fat on the blood of our precious children, our future.

14. Today as my heart considers these matters, I keep searching myself to see by which of these ones I am plagued also, that after preaching with all fervency this Glorious Gospel According to Child Rights/Protection and Family Strengthening, I may not be a castaway, both here and hereafter.

15.Sober on my knees on this LORD’S day, I pray to God, the magnanimous Maker of us all to grant us the wisdom to search the depth of our conscience to see where we fail, that we may make quick amends in the defence of the BEST INTEREST OF OUR PRECIOUS CHILDREN and our future thereof.
