I was Born On 30th October Several Years In A Politically Turbulent Year When The Country Was Teetering On The Brink Of A Civil War Disintegration BY CHIEF OBONO OBLA

I was born in Jos, Northern Nigeria (now) Plateau State on 30 October several years in a politically turbulent year when the country was teetering on the brink of a civil war disintegration.

I was born a twin but my twin sister couldn’t make it past our 10th birthday anniversary.
I have miraculously survived to celebrate my birthday on the 30 October 2023.
I give thanks and glory to the almighty God.
I wish to acknowledge every one of you who took our precious time to celebrate with me through messages, phone calls, Facebook, etc.

I was overwhelmed by the outpouring of messages of goodwill, tributes, write-ups, etc saying nice things about me.
It was very emotional.
