A renowned man of God, Philanthropist, investor and businessman, Amb Prophet Prince James Kunle Hephzebah, aka Baba Peculiar has posited that greatness is not about what one has acquired but the impartation by the individual. The statement was part of the speech he made to newsmen during an award for Humanitarian services bestowed on him by International Human Right Observatory in Abuja.
He also spoke about how he has been helping the masses that made it possible for him to be nominated for the award. Excerpts;
I don’t want to know their houses, I don’t want to know their family, what I am after is, in as much as you are a human being.
It is about service. Sacrifice for humanity. And that should be our focus and our target for any message.
Though I have an NGO, I am telling you that I have never for once had a partner, God has been keeping me. Apart from being a pastor, I am into oil and gas, I am into mining, I am investing. So I am a businessman.
Sir, are you saying that there is no government intervention that is assisting you?
Nobody, ask anybody, but when you are ready to do something God loves, you won’t know where help will come from.
Who are you dedicating this award to?
I dedicate it to God. I can’t dedicate it to my wife because she is not the one that is helping me, it is God. I can’t dedicate it to myself because I am not the one doing it. I dedicate it to God, because if not for God I don’t even plan to be here today. I told my people and said my sons go there, check. Should I come there; because we are busy? Today is counseling day.
I said check, should I come there? He said Baba you should try.
What is your message to other privileged Nigerians out there?
Well you know, one thing is to tell them what to do, one thing is for them to do it.
There are mainly who have billions that can’t give. Greatness is not about what you have acquired; greatness is about your impartation. So if you talk till Jesus comes, some people that will not yield will not yield; but if you read your Bible, you should follow what the Bible says
If anybody can say, ok, me I am going to spend trillions to establish a factory for the masses to have a job- let’s say at least two thousand Nigerian pastors do the same thing.
