    Most people believes that everyday should be spend like it was there last, but this wasn’t me, cause am someone that liked planning everything down to when I have fun, living a spontaneous life wasn’t really who I was, so I decided to make my own quote which I lived by, spend every day “loving the things you do and the people around you”, you can say “live everyday with love”, cause without love life isn’t just worth living.
    I like to believe that I lived loving everyone around me from my family to friends to my co workers , that they no that all my sacrifices, planning and sleepless nights was just for them, I want you to know that my love will always be with them, that they should keep loving each other.
    Today isn’t a day to cry but a day to celebrate a life filled with love, I spent most of my life working to see an Africa filled with peace and unity, where our youth are not just self-reliant but also innovative and creative, our government not of men but of laws, that economic justice is won by free men through free enterprise and that service to humanity is the best work of life.
    And now that have been called to meet my maker, hope my life inspires and motivate young leader to follow that path for a better future filled with love.
