"THE POWER OF LOVE
EMEKA THE DELSU GENIUS OUT OF RAGS
#SaveEmeka Do you remember the story of Emeka, the young genius from Delsu with a promising future who was on RAGS, wasting away in the street of Benin-City? We TeamSaveEmeka Made a call and Nigerians both home and in Diaspora responded.
There were two sets of people who received and responded to our message online. From the first group of people, we got all forms of media attacks, destructive criticism, we were mocked, misinterpreted for scanners, called thieves etc (by an undiscerning few who we don't have need to forgive because we never took their unbelief as an offense because in a country where online and offline scam is rife, one may expect even the most genuine intentions to be misunderstood).
And we did all we were able to do, not to prove critics wrong but because of love for God, humanity and nation. But while all the critics were probably rocking their New Year, I spent almost the whole of January with Emeka. With joy in our hearts, we appreciate and celebrate the overwhelming population of saints (the second group) who contributed their voices by sharing, liking, commenting, calling, visiting etc and those who made financial contributions. You all are the real heroes here! By your effort, we removed Emeka from the street, took him to the Federal Neuro-Psychiatric Hospital Uselu.
All necessary test were conducted, he was diagnosed and placed under treatment. We gave two or more progress report and you didn’t hear from us since then. Due to quick response to treatment & recovery, Emeka was transferred to the Hospital's Permanent Site at Aduwawa, Benin-City. We kept praying, we kept caring and we kept showing him love. Two weeks into February, the hospital invited me for Emeka next assessment scheduled to hold Feb 14th once again I postponed all schedule for that day and hurried to the hospital. And like a dream, right in my presence, Emeka was assessed and discharged. It was so unbelievable and an emotional moment as we both go up simultaneously hug each other, tears rolling down our eyes in appreciation to God.
On the 17th of Feb, I went back to the hospital did the necessary things and went home with Emeka. Finally, on the 21st Feb Emeka boarded God IS GOOD first class bus to Lagos to meet his siblings. Emeka's quick recovery wasn't just due to medical attention but the prayers you made on his behalf and the love we told him that Nigerians were showering on him both online and offline
