The Kolo Youth Visionary Association (KYVA) programme is to hold today (Tuesday) at the Kolo II Town playground/townhall in Ogbia by 4pm to around 10:30pm. This year's debate topic is: "Omite onighe oni ah kill mi'ga ayen var amite aru" (i.e. The success or failure of an individual is determined by the given NAME she/he bears in life). In other words, does the name one bears have an effect on you or determines one's success/failure in life?
The motion will be mainly debated in the Ogbia (Kolo) language by at least eight debaters (four against four). Am one of the debaters and my team (which includes my maternal uncle - Mr. Praisegod "Oweifa" Godfrey, and others) will be OPPOSING the motion of the debate. I will also participate in the drama section.
I think my major challenge will be being unable to speak the Ogbia language fluently as well as, using the correct/suitable word in translating some English concepts and which may affect the message I pass across. It is going to be entertaining and educative, so you are all invited.

Why can't some people understand by common sense that it is simply evil to be unforgiving. It is true that some people are actually hostile to others because of economic, ethnic, tribal and racial reasons and morality teaches them to maintain peace.
But my major worry is that some people claim to be worshipping a deity that teaches them through their religious doctrines to be violent and shed innocent blood to establish their territory or dominate others, without knowing that they are being brainwashed by Satan to carry out his wicked will.
If you know that you are walking on the right path and what you believe is superior to mine, then why must you use force on me to follow you? Can't common sense let you know that it is because you lack truth in what you believe that is why you are using force on me? What about dialogue? Can't you sell what you believe peacefully with me and allow me to make my choice whether to follow you or not based on my conviction? And if I don't do you have to kill me?
Wait a minute and answer the following salient questions;
Is the one you worship a creator of life? If no. Why do you worship him? If yes. Why do you take life that he created and still believe that you are pleasing him? Or do you want to tell us that the one you worship only created some few who are his original believers? If you believe he created all men then why can't common sense let you know that the creator is a lover of his creatures and that whoever destroys any of them commits capital sin against him? Imagine you watching your biological child being killed right in your presence.
It is because you want people to believe a deity you worship that you are fighting and killing them for him.. Can't common sense tell you that you have reduced him to less than a man that you are? I believe someone should be all powerful to be worshipped.
If only some people can think wisely and objectively they will do away with whatever they believe that will make them to promote crisis an terrorism like a man will drop a hot iron from his hand.
Refuse to be afraid of the persecution you might have to face by your relations when you say no to falsehood. The God of truth and peace will shield you from their attacks. The fear of persecution is the major thing that is keeping some people in falsehood.
Dump any religious, traditional, tribal, racial or ethnic teachings that promote unforgiveness, hatred, violence, war, which ultimately result in shedding of innocent blood and embrace the teaching of peace and justice.
I recommend to you such teaching of peace and justice under the umbrella of Christianity. I will not come after you even if you refuse to believe me because my Master told me to be at peace with you. He loves sinners and His eternal expectation is that they will one day come to Him before the end of time. He values His blood that He shed for the remission of the sin of the whole world.
Peace be still in Nigeria.
Jesus is Lord!
