    We cant get out of this world alive. It is a certainty, so why cant we learn to do good while we are at it? This will certainly prolong your days in the world.

    That is a way of God telling our leaders and everybody that He is Greater than us. Do good while on Earth, take care of the powerless/weak if and when you have power; don’t use your power and position to steal, to oppress, to intimidate, etc.

    BUT human beings, especially the breed/species called “Nigerians politicians and leaders”, never learn, never listen to God, do they? They think they are mini-gods. They think they can cheat God and Man. They think they wont die, and if they die, they have at least enjoyed themselves in the living world, so hell or heaven doesn’t matter; they think they can somehow take all their ill-gotten wealth with them into their graves; they think they are immune to God’s wrath; they commit crimes and sins with impunity; they are selfish, greedy, insensitive, no conscience and corrupt.

    We are ALL not getting outta this world alive.

    The evil that men do lives after them; the good is oft interred with their bones – Marcus Antonius in William Shakespeare’s Julius Ceasar.

  2. this is a tragedy….May the souls of the departed rest in peace.
