God, Abraham, President Buhari and the Rest of Us in Nigeria
The most presidential model in Africa on the red carpet in the UK.
Platoon Commander at 21.
Combatant Commander of the Second Infantry Battalion and appointed brigade major, Second Sector, First Infantry Division, April 1967 to July 1970.
Governor of the Northeastern State at 33.
Governor of Borno State at 34.
Federal Commissioner of Petroleum and Natural Resources at 34
Military Head of State of Nigeria at 41.
A great man with great faith who became the democratically elected President of Nigeria at 73 after failing three times in previous presidential elections.
He never gave up hope until he got to the top at old age when majority of other old men give up on their life ambitions.
Many of the ignoramuses who insult President Buhari are those we call NFA (No Future Ambition) and others we call BP (Borrow Pose) who have no outstanding achievements and no legacies beside breeding innocent children in poverty they cannot raise well and increasing the liabilities of Nigeria.
At 20, I was not only the Nigerian book illustrator who represented Nigeria at two international book fairs in Japan, I also sponsored the participation of Nigeria with books by Nigerian authors. And all my works were insured for the events.
I was the youngest participant and the oldest participant was an old man, 90 years old book illustrator., who was still very active when his age mates preferred to give up.
Our father Abraham and his wife Sarah already gave up until Almighty God JEHOVAH showed up to revive them in old age and told them not to give up!
And said to Abraham in Genesis 17:4:
"As for me, this is my covenant with you: You will be the father of many nations."
And the Word of God came to pass with the nation of Israel and all the nations of the Middle East; and all over over the world with more than 2.2 billion Christians (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth) and with 1.6 billion Muslims, (23 percent of the global population).
As Almighty God JEHOVAH made David the first Prophet King of Israel, He is going to make someone the first Prophet President of Nigeria as we continue to occupy until our Messiah JESUS Christ returns.
