The “Emi Lo Kans”- The Generation Of Caleb In Perez Iyiola Oluyemi’s Book

If you have read Perez Iyiola Oluyemi’s Book: ‘The World Is Not Meant For Beggars’, volume 1, and commended the author for a great work, then this volume II of the book: “The Unstoppable Africa” is yet another blockbuster that is going to empower the entire mankind in a unique way.

The concinnity of the words is meant to emancipate the entire human race from the darkness of the mind-benders and moreover to specifically honour all people who are earnestly laying their hands upon one assignment or the other to cross over to their greater sides.

While reading the highly inspirational book that touches humanity as it relates to Nigeria and Africa; chapter 4 of the book is quite revealing. The chapter narrates a biblical reference to a statement: “Emi Lokan”. An assertive statement made by All Progressives Congress, APC presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in Abeokuta, Ogun State.

The Biblical Reference
“Give me the mountain for I am set to conquer it.”

The children of Judah came unto Joshua in Gilgal: (Gilgal is a place where reproach is rolled away), and Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenezite said unto him, thou knowest that the LORD said unto Moses the man of God concerning me and thee in Kadeshbarnea.

Forty years old was I when Moses the servant of the LORD sent me fromfrom Kadeshbarnea to Spy out the land; and I brought him word again as it was in mine heart. Nevertheless my brethren that went up with me made the heart of the people melt: But I wholly followed LORD my God (in faith of what God had said about us as a great nation to be on the earth even when we were still wanderer son the earth.

And Moses Sware on that day, saying, surely the land where on thy feet have trodden shall be thine inheritance, and thy children’s forever, because thou hast wholly followed (i.e believed) the
LORD my God.

And now, behold, the Lord hath kept me alive, as he said, these forty and five years, even since the Lord spoke this word unto Moses, while the children of Israel wandered in the wilderness; and now, lo I am this day fourscore and five years (i.e eighty five years old).

“Emi Lo Kans” As Generation Of Caleb

The author describes the “Emi Lo Kans” as the generation of Caleb.

He describes them as men whose mission and goals are more than set, long overdue for fulfillment, whose times are almost running out. “Despite all odds, they stll emerged as some of the greatest leaders (the Asiwajus) upon their nations and the earth. We shall mention some notable names later of their specs.

They are usually old men running their last lapse of their
Life’s relay race. They are men whose eyes are like flint, fixed
and set on their goals and earthly missions. They are valiant men of war, man of valour who are more than ready and heavily prepared in capacity and experience for the accomplishment of their divine purpose left yet to be fulfilled. They are men and women who are not taking “no” for an answer. They boldly declare: “Emi Lo Kan’- to the world. And they do not fail at it.

“I talk less, think more and do more. I am more of an eagle than a parrot. That is why I fly higher.”

BOLA AHMED TINUBU (The Jagaban, Asiwaju)

Whe the aged ones or any valiant souls say “emi lo kan”, it is not so as pull others down but to add value to the entire organization, party, state or nation. For strong people don’t put others down they lift them up. They may step on toes in the course of their engagements or battles, it is understandable.
