Tribute to Theo @35

It was WARREN BENNIS who said “No leader sets out to be a leader. People set out to live their lives, expressing themselves fully. When that expression is of value, they become leaders. So the point is not to become a leader. The point is to become yourself, to use yourself completely – all your skills, gifts and energies – in order to make your vision manifest. You must withhold nothing. You must, in sum, become the person you started out to be, and to enjoy the process of becoming...”

I’m the light of above; my very good friend and brother Theophilus Tanko Chigudu  is a selfless man who derives peace from living his life regardless of perception, devoid of any form of sentiment, be it age, tribe, tongue, association, and (or) religious difference. He is one of those rare Homo sapiens that have completely model his life after the celestials without even knowing. Indeed a leader amongst leaders has been birthed.

My first encounter with Theo many years ago ignited a fire of brotherhood almost immediately that seems to be burning without control till date. I know my friend would be wondering why all these lengthy epistles ? “I hate plenty talks about me” he must have thought to himself when reading this.... like they say - a gold fish has no hiding place- hence the encomium.

A complete gentleman, Theo would always be readily available to give you a shoulder to cry on. He is that kind of person. He is a go- to guy.

Age in numbers is completely a waste without any meaningful impact in the lives of others. little wonder one of Africa’s best lyricist said “WE RISE BY LIFTING OTHERS”. The core of Theo’s life is creating an opportunity, however little, for everyone around him to grow.

Theo is living a life worthy of commendation. He sees himself in others at all times prompting him to commit himself to service to humanity. You can call him a big heart, you won’t be completely out of place. At such a young age, he has become  a force to recon with, even outside the shores of Nigeria.

In era where there is an alarming shortage of bridge builders, patriotism , and love for nation building, My brother, Theo, readily fills the gap. I have tried to convince him to tilt towards politics, but his replies would always be far fetched from my desires and what I expect of him. But who knows? The future is heavily pregnant with loads of mysteries.

It is worthy of note to celebrate a young man doing exploits in his own way. An academia per excellence, Theo is an embodiment of knowledge and a  beehive of creative ideas.

I woke up this morning not even knowing what to pen down. Then I thought to myself, no need to sugar coat words, no need for any constructive epistle. Just “write am as e de be” (laughs)

So, on this day I want to specially say THANK YOU FOR BEING THEOPHILUS TANKO CHIGUDU WUSHAPA. Truly Bwari ad a whole and FCT is blessed to have you. You are a potential no one should toil with, and I hope and sincerely pray that your environment harness these potentials, and use you for the better good when ever you are ready to offer yourself for SERVICE.

Thank you for who you are. God bless your existence my guy well well.

Once again, congratulations and happy birthday brother.
