ONUOHA CHUKWUEMEKA OBINNA
I came to know of a forum called FATHER’S LOVE FORUM amongst the corps members; they fed us morning and evening and even when I request for an extra plate, the then welfare secretary (Kitchen Mama) Miss Dinchi Kwamzi would give me. They gave me water to bathe, checked up on me and even gave me money to keep my pocket alive. At this point, my curiosity meter was racing and I wanted to find out what was going on. It was at this point I learnt of Maj. Gen. B. O Ogunkale, the Director General of Defense Industry Corporation of Nigeria (DICON). She gave me a magazine of him and on reading about him and his status, I was dazed. It amazed me that a military man of such status and reputation could show so much love beyond imagination to mere corps members.
The long-awaited day came and he visited on the 4th of January, 2017. After his teaching on “THE HOLY SPIRIT” and daddy’s acts of love and humility I saw, I fell in love with daddy and even the forum. He gave out books, gifts, money and even refreshment. My eyes were opened to the personality of the Holy Spirit and I wished the meeting never had to end. Hitherto, I hate working under pressure but serving the forum has toughened me up as I can now work under pressure and still produce the result. Daddy’s teachings have equally gone a long way to impact my life.
A lot of testimonies abound but one of them I must mention was that of one of my students Onah Daniel, a student of Electrical Electronic Engineering in Nigerian Army Institute of Technology and Environmental Studies (NAITES), whom I invited to daddy’s meeting and eventually introduced him to daddy. He had difficulty in reading and assimilating which has affected his academic performance over time. Daddy counselled him and instructed that we get communion materials from the church for him, which he must take every day. Daniel followed daddy’s instruction and his performance changed. His result in the just concluded semester examination was amazing and it drew him closer to God.
Daddy, thank you for yielding to God as an instrument to touch lives in which I am one of them. I pray for you, that God’s grace shall greatly increase in your life. God’s mercy will always speak for you. Your path shall be as a shining light and will shine brighter unto the perfect day. I love you and you will always have a place in my heart, remain blessed daddy.
