One of the most profound teachings of the Bible is Ecclesiastes 3 which is basically admonishing us all that life is journey and “Everything has its time”.

For this post, I’d narrow in on the parts of verse 4 which says “And time to Laugh” and “And time to Dance” – for entire Utomi family, it is indeed a time to laugh and dance as their illustrious father and nation builder, Prof Pat Utomi turns 60!

If I start discussing Prof as a person then I may end up not mentioning the business plan competition which is the reason for this post. But, sometimes I say to myself, how I wish our leaders (past & present) have the sort of forthrightness, intelligence and dedication that I seen in Prof. Utomi – his love for Nigeria and the youths equal none!

May the good Lord bless and keep him and grant him grace to fulfil the number of his days, in Jesus name, Amen!
