U-turn in the realm of the jungle

06 June 2014, 10:46 Onyeji Dominic

"While the lord is expecting our repentance, we all are blowing trumpet of victory," said Jonathan Chukwu. This is idealistic. I mean Jonathan spoke here as an idealist. If we ask me, I will say that the term "repentance" means u-turn in realism.

I have to say this because I am a realist to the core. I dream dreams because dreams are dreamed naturally. I am not a dreamer at all.

One thing I know is that life is journey of two-way or double lane. The two are uphill and downhill. It means that each of us has soul, and every soul is found in realm of jungle. If one is not progressing, it means that one is wasting away in life; if one is not going up, it means that one is going down in life. That is the two-way. One leads to heaven while the other leads to hell and decadence.

Things like insight and sincerity told the wise that Nigeria is dead in downhill, and Biafrans are still part of the dead country. It means that the people of Biafra need to make u-turn from downhill to uphill. That is what repentance means in realism.
