COVID 19 Cannot Kill Anymore; It’s a Banished Shadow –Richarmond O. Natha-Alade

The hovering darkness is the shadow in glory;

There are times when great luck lies in ill-luck

There are times being the greatest among all lies in servitude

There are times great measure of grace lies in some measure of disgrace

There are times boldness and courage lies in ridicule

There are times being greatly strong lies in great weaknesses

There are times great and everlasting peace lies in endless wars

In life, we fight and fight and fight in hope for some days of peace

Adelabu v. Seyi Makinde: Me Lords at the Court of Appeal Could Have Done More – Richarmond O. Natha-Alade

Richarmond O. Natha-Alade

It is exactly two days the constituted Election Petition Panel of the Court of Appeal, Abuja, sitting within the Ibadan judicial division delivered Judgement which many believe is quite uncommon and/or strange in the political history of Nigeria.

For the first time, all parties in an appeal appear joyous and each side (with genuine and/or mischief intents) commending the court for the job well done. Both parties on the major divide seem to have a momentary and/or spontaneous satisfaction of court pronouncements; when in actual fact no actual verdict for and/or against parties was made. Bespeak, the judgement was in favour of all and in favour of none; hence no winner, no vanquish. The Honourable court only made order as to statusquo as it were upon declaration of winner by Independent National Electoral Commission.

We are in the unknown world;
The World, rough but smooth,
Constant but Changing
Vengeful but forgiving,
Dreadful but pleasant,
Wide but narrow,
Awful but terrific
Spiritual but ordinary
Imprisoning but free
