There are a zillion reasons I should be grateful to God who has made me to see another year. As I count my days I can’t but be grateful for the way God has chaperoned me through life’s mazy journey and what He has made out of me. I am the solid evidence that God is such a wonderful potter.
I was tidying up my room recently when I saw my first ever professional award of excellence which I received in 1997 in Kano from the state chapter of the Nigerian Union of Journalists, NUJ for Best Investigative Correspondent. The award was signed by the late Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero.
God’s grace and mercy have helped me, brought me this far. The ruler of the universe has been so good to me despite my inadequacies and limitations. Though He has exceeded my expectations so far, as I start another year I trust Him that He still has a lot in store for me.
Thank you for your faithfulness Lord, thank you for another milestone in life’s journey.”
