Life is a journey. It comes with the good, the ugly and the bad. It comes with joy and sorrow. It brings moment of comfort and moment of discomfort. The news of the conviction of one of the Nigerian best in the entertainment industry and best President ever recorded in the leadership of the Nigerian Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), has come with mixed feelings.
At a glance, it has come to show that in normal society, the law is no respecter of persons. At a second look, it shows the cross that a public figure has to carry as a good example to the society. The former beauty Queen in Nigeria and one of the most celebrated Actor would not have wished to cause human death. But as it were, the accident that happened 10 years ago, which took the life of the deceased was never premeditated. It was unfortunate it happened.
May the soul of the deceased continue to rest in the Lord.
Today, our darling of the Nollywood is convicted of manslaughter and to serve a 5 year jail term. It is a lesson in many ways. She offered herself for judgment and opted not to leave the country to find safety in another country which some other people would have easily done.
I join millions of fans, colleagues and friends of my Colleague, Mentor and friend to share my sympathy for what happened and to urge her continue to believe in her God and be assured of God’s protection. Let her see this moment as part of her debt to humanity, justice and service. God will surely see her true. May God give us the grace to learn the lessons of today for a better tomorrow. I stand with you in this ordeal sweet mama as i call u, heart of Gold Ibinabo Fiberesima. I love and wish you well. #PRAY4IB
