Good afternoon My Great Benin Origin.
Lamogun Eniwanren.

Come to think of all these things, think of all our handwork, all our efforts, all our knowledge, all our wisdom, all our grades, all our products, all our achievements, all our PHD, Master degrees..., all "is my ideal or ideas", all our cultures, all our businesses, all our donations, all our giving and gifts, all our contributions, all our "I know it all" all our speeches and writings... Without all these nine things which leads to a successful happy life and success, happiness and joy, love and peace. Which is nine things, which each and individual has to practice as a person to be able to rule others or give others your culture or our cultures and traditions are these: The Nine things: Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faith, Gentleness and Self-control.

If you are a GBO, you are equally a leader, you are equally a good example, you are equally a standing mirror because all our reasons here is to show our faith, which is faithfulness. To show our peace, which is peacefulness. To show our Love, our kindness, our joy, our dignity, our Gentleness... And our long-suffering which is endurance.... So on and so forth. Your idea might not be accepted today does not mean it will not be accepted tomorrow if really its good one. "Because person not fit run pass E age". We are one. We have all the same idea together and tomorrow many are still coming because will are just climbing up. Many adjustments, many corrections, many teachings, many highlights and highligtment... So we should love each other and be patience with each other. We will get it all right with all our beautiful hearts and "TRUST" and doing things "RIGHT."

There are only just two things holding us now. To move on together smoothly but with time and Osa n'udazi on our side, we will get it all done as soon as possible.

Who owns ideas!! Whose idea!! Eyea!!! I shook my head bec this the same thing our governors are showing, and some of our wicked fathers who eventually went to their grave with their so called idea. I am very deaf to this ideas and my ideas is my idea is I idea is she he her it wood skeleton ideas...
This a collectorate of all ideas to combined to one.

Eyea! What is GBO??? All the time I personally ask what is the meaning of GBO? What are our aims?
Hmm!! GBO is not one person. And not two persons but a collective of different people to be in one uniform.
I think so therefore, one person cannot bring his or her idea and want GBO to assign his or her name to it. In whose money, in whose promotions, or donations!!!? Let me be clear with this, I bring an idea and I will say is my idea, I brought it to GBO to publish it or do it and I later called it my idea??? Whose intelligence am are using, whose effort am I using? Or donations? Strength, time, labours....

If I have an idea and is my idea, I should better do my idea. And not GBO will do it and I will be there saying is my idea... It does not sound to me good or I know what is GBO!!!

GBO is a colletive effort of many people many persons many labours many thinking many minds many works for we all to deliver the best of our individuality to the society our great state. I will therefore beg every man and woman that this My idea your idea I brought the idea should stop. Not to be like we are not one body. One GBO.

You bringing an idea we appreciate you, and even many have also the same ideas bug than that of yours too, we appreciate them but who to carry it out is our body name GBO. As for me, an idea brought out to GBO and GBO accepted it and elaboratedon it and use all the human effort to bring it to work or function is "GBO IDEA." Gbam. There is no two laws about it. Either the idea sink to the grave don't bring it out. But if you bring it out is to better the promotion of GBO and why you are a member of GBO
