His Words


All things are now ready. Last week, I wrote about the cleaning and clearing of my office in State House, Presidential Villa, Abuja. The job is now done, and as a bride waits for her groom, the office now expects its next occupant, the Adviser on Media to the incoming President.

That event is now about 38 days away. William Shakespeare wrote in Romeo and Juliet: “Love goes toward love, as schoolboys from their books…” That is how I look forward to my next endeavors, after serving in government for 8 years.

The Good Book says of Moses: “And Moses was faithful as a servant in all God’s house, testifying to what would be spoken later.” (Hebrews Chapter 3, verse 5).

To the best of my ability, I have served my principal, Muhammadu Buhari, the Mai Gaskiya (honest man), who hails from Daura, in Katsina State. Through thick and thin, I have been there with him. Been called names, excoriated, flagellated, threatened. But there I was. All the way. Bloodied at times, but unbowed. Now, happily, like love goes towards love, a schoolboy away from his books, all my bags are packed, I’m ready to go. Remember Jet Plane, that song by Sonya Spence?

All my bags are packed
I’m ready to go
I’m standing here outside your door
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye…

But goodbye we must say. Today, permit me to pay tribute to all those who have served in the office I’d occupied in the past 8 years. They also served their masters; faithfully, just as I have tried to do. I had written about them in the past, both living and dead.
