Run for President if you feel fit enough – Bawa counsels Manasseh Azure 

Dear Manasseh, Manasseh!Manasseh!!Manasseh!!!Growing up in the nostalgic hills of the Savannah, a certain admonition always rang true. From their cola stained teeth and lips dripping with fresh millet porridge, my aging uncles always sounded a caution-“there is wisdom in respecting grey hair”.
