Global icon and one time, black American Presidential CANDIDATE, the great Reverend Jesse Jackson could not have painted the picture of the mystery of life and its turnaround story, so vividly. Divulged Jackson, many years back says: All of us are not born giants, with silver spoon in our mouths and gold slippers on our feet. Some of us are born short, short of hope, short of opportunity, abandoned, neglected, homeless, motherless, teeth crooked, eyes tangled, dream busted. ‘But somebody has got to measure their greatness not by leaping up but by reaching back, reaching out and loving and caring’’
Today, the world can easily say, the HRH, Aidenojie Ehidiamen 1, the Onojie of Opoji, no doubt fits this quote by Jackson, though he is born ruler, but he was not born with silver-spoon or gold slippers, but by share hard work, discipline and determination, the Onojie of Opoji, is today one of the most celebrated traditional rulers in Edo State.
It’s amazing, the monarch who would either have to be given by his able subjects and friends or rely on his monthly allowances now provides for the less privilege and his community at large. He has suddenly risen from just being a comfortable traditional ruler to being a contented King, whose wealth trajectory is now invisible. HRH, Aidenojie Ehidiamen 1, the Onojie of Opoji, is now one of the most influential men in Edo State with hand scattered in many pies, with major interests in charitable ventures; provides for the orphans, poor and the needy, widows and his community at large.
A grateful monarch who has never failed to thank HIS creator God for the love HE extended to him and his loving family, thanked Apostle Temitope Balogun Joshua and other clerics for their spiritual support and direction, and pray for God to continuously increase their ANNOITING ‘’ I know that God has bestowed an amazing blessing upon me, and I thank HIM for it, I would always do my duty to always provide for the widows and to be helpful to my people and community’’. His story is a delight for those who crave for grace to grace story.
