CAN I HAVE YOUR EARS?
DON’T FIGHT, DON’T REVENGE

So many people are ready to die, waiting for someone to push them into the grave!

I need to warn you my friend on this: If you were assaulted, I mean physically attacked by someone, your emotions would be pushing you to hit back. If anybody intervenes, telling you not to fight, appeasing you to let go, kindly honour them. Please!

No matter how tempted you are to fight back, no matter the infamy you feel you have been subjected to, please, don’t allow your emotions to rule your decision. Honour the peacemaker. The person could be an angel sent to save you from untimely death or prison, as the case may be, according to this experience I’m about narrating.

An Okada man (bike rider) brought a man to a junction and a hot verbal exchange ensued. The Okada man asked for an extra fare, the man brought insisted there was a fixed fare for the distance covered. Grammar and abuse followed.

First to raise his hand was the Okada man. He landed a quick one on the face of his client. The client ran to pick a stick to fight back.

Before he got back to the Okada man, people had gathered and were holding him not to fight. About three people held him, telling him to let go. Pretending to be appeased, the people left him. Suddenly, he let loose towards the Okada man and dealt him a slap. The Okada man went down and was immediately motionless.

He began to walk away but the people around went to check the Okada man on the floor. It was like a joke. Soon, they began to shout… “The man don die o.” “Where are you going? You don kill the Okada man.” They ran after him, grabbed him and brought him to the scene. He bent to check the man he slapped. He was motionless.

The crowd became bigger. More and more Okada riders began to park their bikes. A nurse from one of the pharmacy shops along the road came there. After a while, she said the man was not breathing again. He could be dead. He should be taken to the hospital. The guy who slapped him should carry his load. It was obvious the Okada rider had died.

The man’s eyes cleared immediately. He began to cry, explaining that the man on the floor slapped him first and he only slapped back. That instantly became an old story. He has killed a man. That is the new story. In a twinkle of an eye, the story has changed. The destinies of two people have changed. If he accepted the appeasement of the people who intervened, he would by now have forgotten that someone slapped him.

There are so many times in life that we feel cheated. There are so many disgraceful experiences we would face in our lives. If only we know the devices of the devil, we would know how to let go of stupid distractions.

If that man had let go, if he merely rubbed his cheek and walked away with the pains of the slap, wouldn’t that be better than the prison now steering at him? His life has taken another turn by a mere revenge slap. The devil has caught in the web of anger. Jesus knew what He was saying when He said leave revenge unto God.

Please, my friend, when people say, “That is enough, let go,” please let go. They could be your angels. So many people are ready to die, waiting for someone to push them into the grave. No matter the provocation, please keep your future in focus.

Temptations, like the first slap would come, don’t be led to the second slap. Evil will not happen to you in Jesus name.

BREAKING: SANWO-OLU TO ABOLISH PENSION FOR EX-GOVS, DEPUTIES

By Sodiq Oyeleke

Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Tuesday announced his intention to repeal the Public Office Holder (Payment of Pension Law 2007), which provides for payment of pension and other entitlements to former Governors and their Deputies.

He made this known while presenting the 2021 budget to the Lagos State House of Assembly.

Sanwoolu said the bill would be sent to the Lagos Assembly for legislative approval.

According to Sanwo-Olu, the abolition of pension for former governors and deputies will reduce the cost of governance.

He said, “Mr. Speaker and Honourable Members of the House, in light of keeping the costs of governance low and to signal selflessness in public service, we will be sending a draft executive bill to the House imminently for the repeal of the Public Office Holder (Payment of Pension Law 2007), which provides for payment of pension and other entitlements to former Governors and their Deputies.”

EndSARS CELEBRITIES, PROMOTERS MUST FACE LAW, GARBA SHEHU SAYS

The Central Bank of Nigeria had recently frozen the account of some protest organisers in a bid to stop further protests from occurring.

Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari, has said that all Nigerians and celebrities, who promoted protests against police brutality in the country must face the law.

The Central Bank of Nigeria had recently frozen the account of some protest organisers in a bid to stop further protests from occurring.

The Nigeria Immigration Service also seized the travel passport of Modupe Odele, preventing her from leaving the country for providing legal aid to arrested protesters.

The Nigerian Government irked by the protests had in October hired thugs to hijack the demonstration, plunging the nation into chaos in a bid to blame it on peaceful #EndSARS protesters.

While speaking on why the CBN froze the account of the protesters, Shehu while speaking on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics said, “This country has only one President and has only one constitution. President Muhammadu Buhari is responsible for his government. The buck stops on his table.

“We are a country governed by law. There is a constitution —under section 33— that clearly defines the rights of citizens to freely protest in a peaceful way but where a peaceful protest turns into riot, violence and looting, there is a law and order duty to be performed.

“Everyone witnessed the massive looting of public and private properties particularly in Lagos, Calabar, Plateau, Taraba and some other states, even the FCT.

“Now, the laws of the country must be allowed to decide, to rule on wrongdoing on the part of anybody.

“I am not particular about any celebrity or promoter but this country has been harmed enormously and people should be prepared to account for what they did.”
