Just had the heart-breaking task of seating through my cousin’s funeral, Captain Omitola Falana. He died in active service in Katsina on the 24th of September 2020. His wife couldn’t even see his body as he was shot in the head at close range after being Continue reading
The hallway echoes with footsteps…The rooms pregnant with dark silence, the chairs looking gloomy…a shadow of useful past.
One after another, the chatter fades away, the smiles wither and the warmth turns to cold, the boisterousness gives way to hollowness and despair.
A cherished history, the bonding memories are remembered in bitterness and anger…and the wind blows listlessly…willing for days gone by.
A hunger for fulfillment…a stirring for purpose give winds to the sails…and they sail off into the sunset seeking for glory and never to look back.

Look at us now, Femi! Look at how far we have come!
We were born into a failed marriage, but we were comfortable and loved anyways.
I sat down and am wondering what to write on this awesome day. Words fail me beyond measure as I look back over the last one year, and my heart wells with gratitude to God. For it had being Him all the day…yes all the way. I remember that conversation with my Pastor heralding your coming, we had waited quite a while and resolved to just trust in Continue reading
It’s being quite a while that I posted anything in this space…been cut up in different things that make my heart wander away from here but I stroll down again to reminisce on things I had written and rue on articles I still want to write on.
3-4 Rehoboam assembled Jeroboam and all the people. They said to Rehoboam, “Your father made life hard for us—worked our fingers to the bone. Give us a break; lighten up on us and we’ll willingly serve you.”
5 “Give me three days to think it over, then come back,” Rehoboam said.
6 King Rehoboam talked it over with the elders who had advised his father when he was alive: “What’s your counsel? How do you suggest that I answer the people?”
When God set the world in place,
when He hung the stars up in space,
when He made the land and the sea,
then He made you and me.
He sat back and saw all that was good,
He saw things to be as they should. Continue reading
I remember exactly ten years ago, i woke up from a terrible nightmare. I remember getting up from my bed and heading to the kitchen to prepare breakfast and head out for lectures when the call came in that what time will i arrive at OOUTH. That’s when the reality hit me with the force of a sledge hammer banging a nail into a concrete wall!
The traffic this morning was hectic and sort of absurd. As i got to my office and parked, i saw a Gentleman i often see around in my office complex walking past. We exchanged pleasantries and as i turned to walk off, he turned round and said, “I had wanted to ask you, i know your face somewhere, your face looks so familiar but i can’t place it anywhere…”
Today, is one of those days you sit back and take stock of your life. You do an assessment of how far you have come and how far you have gone. It’s a day of reflection and projection for the future. In case you are wondering, i was a year older today, and felt the love, bond and camaraderie of friends, family and loved ones. Interestingly, two years ago, i got two cakes on my birthday:), one from the Office as usual and one from a “dear” friend i was asking out then. This year, i got two cakes again! One from the office as usual (we love cakes in my office) and the second from a “very dear” friend (Whattyah thinking)….lolol ;). To continue reading visit; www.samaderibigbe.com
