Days are now numbered, thus far approaching a vivid growth and flamboyant change in my life. These are days towards a new dawn, days towards maturity; and such a development within
anyone’s life is poignant if it’s not carefully looked at and welcomed gladly.
I have been ready for marriage and I set my mind to accept, welcome, and feel it as a colossal growth that I have never ever experienced before!
Because marriage is an outward sign that changes inner personality, it only takes a big heart to admit it.
However, from being a single man to becoming a married man is “a market-loss”.It is a loss of friendsand colleagues; a great loss of freedom because one’s freedom is now
measured, one’s steps are counted and one’s free-will in handling things or tackling problems is blurred!
Finally, it’s on this ground of reality that I hasted to pen a few words down to my prospective wife and our future kids in order to trace a line back to my offspring. I have
provided this book for my kids because they ought to choose from me the right sheen that would paint and shape their lives in this universe that stands on a slanting position. Besides, I want them
to trace from me another genealogy; an offspring of Diasporas though themselves would not be Diasporas in either sense.This serves as the first volume of my memoirs.
I once was a student, a teacher, a writer and a youth political aspirant; but now the clock signals another turning point in life, that life of being a husband and a father as
well. Therefore, with vigour and enthusiasm I deserve to leave an indelible clichto my progeny; and here I go.
