A candle loses nothing by lighting another. In fact a candle over works itself by not lighting another. Selfishness and petty envy is killing us. You are blessed to bless others. You are lifted to lift others. You are favoured to favour others. Try not to be Andrew Yakubu who had 9 million dollars cash in his house but would not help people around him. He forgot that it was people that helped him in the past.
A GREAT MAN IS HE THAT HAS MADE OTHERS GREAT.
With large numbers v illiterates, poverty and almajirai’s in the north, no northerner shall claim greatness .
