WHAT A GREAT THING TO KNOW! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

What a great thing to know, that we age everyday. What a great thing to know, that everyday, you are a day older than you were yesterday. What a great thing to know, that something inside of me enlarges daily; and everyday I see a better me.

Don’t treat me like I was yesterday.

What a great thing to know, that I am a day older today. This knowledge in me is a mixed feeling. Since I know as I age daily, so my stay on the pitch of life is reducing. Nevertheless, I am glad as I have chosen to live; a unique life of purpose. To make a landmark that cannot be erased on the soil of time. To impart my generation even generations unborn with my golden pen. So, when i am off, my pen keeps speaking Hmm.

What a great thing to know, that i am a year older today…‪#‎HAPPY‬BIRTHDAYTOME

A number of lame arguments have been presented to justify this anathema.

Assuming without conceding that the court acted ultra vires, is it for the National Assembly to constitute itself as an appeal court ? determining when a court possesses or lacks jurisdiction to determine a suit? At least, Democratic civility requires that the NASS challenges formally the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court to entertain the case. This is the way things ought to be done.
