These are natural weaknesses for which man has no control. Like the tendency is for us to think, as we approach the first stage of old age, that we have survived all odds especially for one who considers he has done his bit. It’s like one dares death and looks straight into its eyes.
That was until a while ago when we lost our upwardly mobile, young and promising daughter Oyinoluwa Oshikanlu. The whole world came crashing and it became clear we have not survived all odds, afterall.
Two weeks into it, we give praise to God Almighty and move on with life. We love her but God loves her more.
Oyinoluwa Oshikanlu is the daughter of Mr Joko Oshikanlu, my best friend of 57 years. She fell in the bath, hit her head against the bathtub, and passed on before reaching hospital.
