They said we never have the money to run. We say we that our strength lies in our numbers. They said we never have the structure, we say we will attempt to build it. They said, “what if you lose”? I say, what if we win? Though my entire life has been a story of just dreaming dreams, praying about those dreams, setting goals, and working until they come true. I can live with trying and failing. I can never live with not trying. So while we may never have a godfather, but we do have God. We have vision & intellectual capacity, integrity & the right intentions. The last but not least, a whole lot of hope. In the end, hope may be all we have, but I believe all we need is God. God bless Nigeria. #Hope19 #EtiOsa #MDP as tagged Banky W in politics.
