I count myself lucky to be writing this history today because it is an opportunity to add my name to this project. I am so excited about my association with such a knowledgeable man of God and politician who is being inspirational to all walks of life.

In fact, I am tired typing all about this man so I think, I have to continue in my next episode. A good time with the Professor and Reverend. As a “Speaker of Parliament” will follow as I unfold the history in its sequential order. I hope you have learnt something.
