He will be spending the New Year and his birthday on the 2nd, in prison but Agba Jalingo remains undaunted.
He says he will be sharing those small things that his fellow inmates lack acutely in the prison with them on his birthday.
He is not asking for birthday gifts or accolades. He wants toilet soaps, detergents, slippers, mosquito nets, tooth brushes and tooth paste and even boxers, to share with his fellow inmates.
He says those who locked him up have only given him the rare opportunity to identify a problem he must contribute to solving even after he regains his freedom, the suffering and deprivation that prisoners endure daily.
He assures us everyday we see him that, his spirit will not be broken and his will can only continue to soar higher and above all, that he holds no grudge against anyone including those who have put him in jail. For him, it is a time of prayer, supplications and regeneration.
That is the stuff this Agba Jalingo is made of.
Donate or join Jalingo with a soap, a detergent, a tooth brush or a pair of slippers or a tooth paste or even a boxer in Afokang Prison, and celebrate with him on his birthday January 2nd 2020.
