Staunch Defence .... Ebi Shidi-Spiff Comes out in Staunch Defence of Edo Billionaire & Serial Investor ,Capt Hosa Wells Okunbor
" To be great is to be misunderstood "
By Mike Cerutti Osagie
A lot has no doubt been said about the billionaire business tycoon , hotelier,high mechanized Farmer, oil & gas player, philantropic minded element and soccer buff, Chief Dr Captain Hosa Wells Okunbor
Are these reports materials laced on paint of political vendetta? Is the billionaire business tycoon Capt Hosa that notorious or evil ? Is he simply being misunderstood?
One man who admittedly confessed to almost weeping anytime he reads of negative stories about Captain Hosa Wells Okunbor is non other than the Bayelsa born Ebi Shidi-Spiff who is now domiciled in Toronto Canada
Only last night , he pulled a long call to yours truly to me and reminded me of the great quote of Dr Martin Luther's King which says .. " Our life's will begin to end the day we keep silence on the things that matters "
Speaking further, Chief Spiff who have enjoyed a long mutually beneficial friendship with ex commercial pilot recalled that only recently he came across a piece by one Frank Agbons Idehen from USA ( OPEN LETTER TO CAPTAIN HOSA OKUNBOR)
In that letter, his so called cousin decided to cast Capt Hosa's mind back to those days at the “base” (your house) off Olowu street before he moved to Emina crescent where all the packages (consignments) were moved out to Minneapolis and Houston, before they moved to his residential location at the house at Toyin Street to spark a sense of humility in him ’Captain Powder’’
Speaking categorically, Spiff described the submissions in the letter as trash and a piece sponsored by perhaps some business or political enemies of Captain Hosa Wells Okunbor
Hear him " When people talk ill about others, let them also learn to speak of their good side
" Go to Emina cresence , go to Toyin street and even heart of Ikeja where I first knew Captain Hosa Wells Okunbor, his philantropic gestures to many still speaks volumes , he has not only sent many to schools, he has brought succour to many homes
" I make bold to say that Okunbor is not the evil man they are painting him to be
" Okunbor as far as we know is not keen to be Governor, neither is he power drunk like many Moguls today, he is silent philanthropist who has been described in superlative by many poor students, widows , orphans and their likes ( disadvantaged people)
" We that knows him well are consoled that indeed to be great is to be misunderstood. Our Lord Jesus was falsely accused and humiliated; South African freedom fighter, Dr Nelson Mandela was too among many others global figures, so what Captain Hosa Wells Okunbor is going through is what it means to be a truly great man" Chief Spiff postulated
