~Gyado T. Emmanuel.
There are two phases of a story. One is talked about and seen by everyone but the other is untold.
The untold story a humanitarian who has for years given charity a new look making it all look normal and ordinary.
Chief Maurice Emeka Akueme has humbled the narrative of charity in Africa,so everytime I begin to write about him I don’t need to gather data from any source because this things have become like a story from the anthill told every evening by parent to child, it has become like a bedtime story told every now and then.
It seems that the necessary thing to do is not to fear mistakes, to plunge in, to do the best that one can, hoping to learn enough from blunders to correct them eventually.
A man of personality can formulate ideals, but only a man of character can achieve them.
Only a real champion and a person of character and strength can keep going and refuse to give up.
Chief Maurice Emeka Akueme has refused to give up and is still doing more to reach out to humanity.
I definitely see a champion in him.
I see a zealous character in achieving anything that he put his mind to do.
Only strong personalities can endure history, the weak are extinguished by it.
Three things in human life are important. The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. And the third is to be kind.
That best portion of a good man’s life: His little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and of love.
We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.
I’m not doing my philanthropic work out of any kind of guilt. I’m doing it because I can afford to do it, and I believe in it~ Chief Maurice Emeka Akueme.
And that’s coming from a heart that genuinely feels the need to be charitable.
If you combine all the spectral rays into a single beam, you get white light; and if you combine all the virtues into a single beam you get charity.
The world is moving so fast these days that the one who says it can’t be done is generally interrupted by someone doing it.
