    TOO BAD! THIS CORONA VIRUS IS never really tiring, just like Boko Haram. Everyday you hear one new case. Boko Haram has even left off their incessant attacks in “honour” of this Bigger Boko Haram.

    I WISH the Dokpesis quick recovery! And while I type this, my mind recalls our one and only Patrick Obaihagbon, the only grammatical principality sitting at the highest echelon of intentional circumlocutions, confounding even the owners and inventors of English Language. And I wonder, why has he not come out to describe one thing at all about this deadly disease? Or is he too afraid to joke with it(after all, all his comments about anything are jokes)? Or has he spoken, but I missed it?

    We continue to pray for God’s protection over us, and cover all of us with the blood of Jesus. As it is we don’t know how far the virus has gone deep in our midst, we don’t know who is carrying the virus not until it manifests.
    I pray full recovery for the Dokpesi’s household, and every other person’s going through the pandemic.
