lease take the advice of mummy seriously on your parcel of land. I returned to Nigeria after I spent Christmas with my family in TN on Feb. 17 when I noticed some trespass on a piece of land I had bought from a particular LG with authentic papers. I intend to use it as a branch of our mission. Can you believe that it was a former member, State of House Assembly that was trying to steal the land?
Hi Mr. Sam.
I was attracted to the article titled, "When Last Did You Visit Home" written in series on Nigerian World website. I love the information and the style of the article. But beyond the lay out, the substance reallystory line remains very fascinating to me.
Please, are those situations really true or they allegories?
I haven't been in Nigeria for some years and I do hear of some stories - really frightening situations but I
do say to myself that these stories may be pure exaggeration.
However, I had some experiences recently and now reading your write-ups, I am beginning to think reason otherwise.
I sent some nice Christian books, Maim Dolphin Shirts to a high school friend of mine. It cost me some good $$$ to mail the parcel. The parcel got to the post office at Mapo, Ibadan, based on the tracking information. Yet my friend did not receive
the gift. Beside, she was told that the parcel had been returned to me. I was nearly infuriated.
Prior to this incident, my mother had previously complained about parcels sent to her from not being delivered. On an occasion that it was delivered, the whole bag had been badly torn open, ransacked and left in a ragged condition. Beside, she was told to pay N20,000.00 to collect the bag.
My Sister said the same thing about the parcel I sent to her. Consequently, she advised me not to mail any important item to her through the regular post.
Now, the big one which really made me write: I have a parcel of land purchased exclusively for the Gospel and community development in Nigeria. My mother kept telling me severally to put a structure on the land because people do still land. I told
her that I have all the papers for the land from the government. But she said that alone does not guarantee retention in Nigeria.
Sometimes, I would think her insistence on me putting a little structure on the land after few years of purchase was getting too much. But I am beginning to have a rethink with all I have read and heard about one or two situations.
Thanks for writing. All I wrote and will still write are all facts. The names of the individuals involved in the part 1 are the real names and not imaginary or fictions. Part 5 will be published today Tue, by anytime from 800pm EDT.
Please take the advice of mummy seriously on your parcel of land. I returned to Nigeria after I spent Christmas with my family in TN on Feb. 17 when I noticed some trespass on a piece of land I had bought from a particular LG with authentic papers. I intend to use it as a branch of our mission. Can you believe that it was a former member, State of House Assembly that was trying to steal the land? Mind you I had fenced the land, yet he thought because he is powerful he could take it over. Only less than a week God granted me victory over him after I dragged him to court and the LG officials testified in my favour. Do something urgently because taking over of land is the order of the day in Nigeria today. I have a friend in a serious problem about land meanwhile. The engineer had built 20 rooms and had been occupied by students when the man who sold the land came up that he hadn't sold the land. He claimed that his agent sold it. But who gave the authority to the agent & who collected the money? Lots are happening.
Regarding those undelivered parcels, listen to this. We returned from the U.S, in April 1991 in what I usually refer to as our 1st Missionary Journey. We shipped a relatively new car. I thought I could secure it with purchase of insurance. My shipper in Atlanta advised that it was going to be a waste of money because she could assure me that the car was going to reach the border of Nigeria territorial water secured and that no insurer will insure any car beyond the border of Nigeria Territorial water. She is a white American woman. See how we have damaged ourselves.
Be blessed in Jesus name
