Privileged to preach this morning.

Exactly 250 yrs ago, in Olney, Bucks, someone else did the same. His name was John Newton. He’d also written a hymn to go with his New Year’s sermon. He called it “Faith’s Review and Expectation” - we know it better as #AmazingGrace …a thread
The hymn didn’t make much of an impact. Didn’t even make Newton’s top 60! Then it emerged in America in the 1830s with the tune we know today. 2/9
It went on to become one of the most recorded songs in history; a hymn, a pop song, a folk song, recorded by the likes of Mahalia Jackson, Aretha, Elvis and more. It is estimated to be sung 10 million times a year across the globe. 3/9

Quite something that Trump really won’t welcome his successor into the White House nor mention him by name...

Though this speech could yet go on for some time...
Trump praises himself for beating Obama’s vote total in 2012, and setting a record for a sitting President.
Say “Biden”!!!
Not yet...

But he does say “we’ll be back in some form”...

“Have a good life.. we will see you soon”... and the Village People’s YMCA kicks in...

Kaduna was revelatory of the fact that Citizens are TIRED of Governance Failure.
In four sets of meetings with diverse segments of society, the recurrent theme was, “ It is time to break away from a Failed Order”.
Our people are READY🇳🇬✅🚀!

Citizens shall determine the 2019 elections by themselves.
The era of “politricians” and their coterie of praise singers telling citizens to choose the “lesser of two evils” is FINALLY NOW OVER.
They cannot see it coming, but that’s fine. Join us & #Fight4Naija until WE win👍🏾
As WE take #Fight4Naija across the country, one imagines that the determination of Citizens to birth the kind of Politics and Politicians who shall provide Purposeful Governance shall rise to a crescendo. My heart leaps for joy for the Liberty that will follow. #AmazingGrace🌹🙏🏾
