Sometimes when I took my personal quite time to
think and reason how i will look sitting inside prison for committing a

committed.when I think of the way my wife and children will look at on
the streets of Japan because of my evil deeds.when I think of what my
Facebook friends will say about me or against me both those that loves
and hates me.
when I think on how enemies of progress laugh at me
and my generations and celebrate my down fall .when I think on how
friends of progress will feel about me.i simply and personally walk
straight to my tall standing mirror and say to my self please respect
your self and never bring bring disgrace to your family and friends.
for that single reason I reject every bad business and everything that
will make me to fall into traps of Satan out of greed and selfishness
and love of money.and I don’t care how fast and faster my fellow Igbos
and mates are making it speedily and faster.
i concentrate on my
job and depend on God and my little salary.and by the grace of God am
making it little by little and still strongly believe in (ezi aha ka
ego)good name is better than money. (Ndu ka aku)life is better than
riches. and finally till today am enjoying total freedom here in Japan
and my home town.
My residence permit and my names are pure than
gold and silver.it is whiter than snow and I still need more grace to
get to the end without stain or pollution.
