MY BIRTHDAY MESSAGE TO ADAMS RUFAI OF UEW-K FAME.
Man must not cease to be man no matter the situation. We are in a critical period of examination where getting a time to scribble as I usual do, become almost impossible but not when a gentleman who is almost indispensable in my life on campus is celebrating his milestone. I have therefore made this short time out of busy academic schedules to put these few morphemes together to at least put a smile on this close contingent of mine.
On similar occasions, Adams would have been the first as usual of him to use his flamboyant vocabularies to put scintillating smiles on my face. Such a loving character can not be left to stand in isolation without paying him homage by reasonably eulogising him. I wish I had his sort of linguistic proficiency and competency to have showered him with earthshaking diction.
With my linguistic deficiency however, humorous though, I write to extend my sincere best wishes and felicitations to him as he celebrates his birthday. In my view, the significance of such events is to examine and introspect our lives so far on earth. As young as we are, a caliber of Adams certainly is a motivation to friends and colleagues. His continues strives in life as a student activist, writer and business man, make him a symbol of admiration in my mental faculties.
Indeed, having known the gentleman for almost a year now, I have gained a lot through his motivation, criticism and praises though sometimes I feel exceedingly flattered by his descriptions of my personality. All that are very relevant to we young ones as we grow.
In his life as a student parliamentarian, he has been impeccable with his renditions on the floor of Parliament making the majority caucus a formidable force to reckoned with in the 10th Parliament.
Adams constant flow, interlaced with well researched facts and figures makes him a colossal among men with unquestionable intellectual purity. Anytime this gentleman rises on his feet, the gratification through my heart and my mind, always give me a sort of emotional saturation, obviously evident with goose pimples all over my body. I am tempted to believe that I am not the only Hon member who might have develop this mightily undiluted administration for him. Certainly not, considering his clement and socializing posture.
Adams, as indicated earlier, I do not possess the needed linguistic ability to bake and garnish this eulogy. My little advise to you is that, keep doing the good works and never allow distraction from people who might not believe in your philosophy, ever to cow you down. I see better days ahead. I say this with enthusiasms and only time will vindicate me.
Though I am financially handicapped, to have thrown you a mega jollification, I am with you strongly in spirit. I know at the right time, we can still spend some good time together after all, you are always there for me.
Adams, of all the good things I have Learnt from you, I still have little information on your "handbag" a symbol of respect for Hon members in student parliament. I don't think you are lagging behind like me with all your head breaking semantics. Well, Adingo, the master of the game will update me that(hehehe.........)
We share one common thing which is the pen. With this pen, we shall live and one day die with even under the adversities that it may elicit. It is our sword, sharp and might, never to led us into intellectual defeat. A word to a wise........
I succinctly admonish that you celebrate this day with care, considering the challenging nature of this year's end of semester examination. I wish you a very happy birthday.
