“I dream it, I see it, I love it and I live it.”
I have got fire in my bones and marrows: I am living on purpose beyond the logos.
I am living my vision for all generation: I have got authentic swing right inside of me…
There is a continuous me (which is) the extension of me; it’s the real me, the authentic me and that’s my passion.
Show me your passion, and I will tell you about your person.
Tell me your person, and I will show you your passion.
Show me your passion, and I will tell you about your purpose.
Then what is Passion? Please, “pass it on”: Pass it on passion, and you will have to pass it on purpose.
Pass it on till you pass on and on: I have my purpose to pass on, pass on and on and on…pass it on purpose.
If you do not sit well, you will not discover a purpose to pass on (just like network marketing).
Destiny is a divine destination to pass the baton of passion on purpose onto another, who then passes it as a passion on purpose with a drive of fulfilment.
Give me a reason to pass onto you my passion, if you would not appreciate it with a drive of “step-takings”.
Executively use me: Excuse me? if you are not worth running the race, then you cannot pass my passion on purpose, let alone pass my passion on a passion for a purpose; of purpose for passion.
I pass in passion to pass executively my passion on purpose unto only very serious generation that are ready to generate passes in their passions, then fulfil not to miss their mission on their passions.
My mission must not be misused, nor be missed on, nor misinterpreted, nor misunderstood for misuse; because it is a ministry that has a “tree” beyond what is called “mini”.
My minimum is beyond “mini” because my passion must executively extend beyond my existence! It must be passed on and on to fulfil my destiny: A destination encrypted in my energetic emission for my mission as my purpose.
Please, pass it on, on and on as a pleasing priority with purity as a price for the prize of my passion.
Just like one of my mentors (Dr Yomi Garnett) would always say: “When the pupil is ready, the master manifests!”
Pass it to passion, you have to pass it on purpose.
Pass it on purpose, and you have to pass it on passion. Both must align, therein lies your destiny.
Thank you all for reading.

Policeman Prostrates, Begs After Threatening Panel Member in Ogun
There was disquiet at the Ogun State Judicial Panel of Investigation Against Police Brutality when a policeman, Sergeant Adeleke Olalekan, allegedly threatened members of the panel.
The panel, which sat at the Magistrate Court 1, Isabo, Abeokuta, on Monday, was cross-examining the Officer in-Charge of the defunct Special Anti-Robbery Squad, CSP Gbenga Megbope.
Olalekan had accompanied his boss, Megbope, who was a respondent in a case of brutality against some people in the state.
Olalekan was, however, allegedly caught pointing at the panel members in a manner suggestive of threats.
The Chairman of the panel, Justice Solomon Olugbemi, called him out and booked him for punishment as stipulated under the commission of inquiry law.
While reading out the law against the policeman’s action, the chairman said, “Any act of disrespect, insult or threat to the commissioners or any panel members while sitting in commission or any act of disrespect, insult or threat to a commissioner or panel members at any other time or place on account of his proceedings in his capacity as a commissioner or panel member shall be deemed to be an act of contempt within the meaning of this law under Section 16 of the same law.”
Olugbemi noted that the sergeant ought to be recommended for trial at a magistrate’s court.
But Olalekan, while being questioned, prostrated and pleaded for forgiveness.
The panel pardoned him, while the chairman warned against disrespect for the panel.
