BELOW ARE SELECTED QUOTES BY CHIEF CHARLES O. OKEREKE
 
 
(1) - "The cross of grief and pain from predators and oppressors in disguise as leaders or liberators ceases with age, but the people live from age to age through generations. Eventually, the nation reverts to the people. Time on your side."
(2) - "Peace and justice are of prosperity, human rights and freedom. These are the main elements of humanism, which is not of tribe, race, group or section, but of God’s love and human conscience. Music and media guided by His Grace are vehicles of everlasting peace and justice."
(3) - "Let the guns implode, the wooden barrels decompose to fertilize a vibrant agriculture, and the metallic barrels and structures melted for industrialization. Let the ensuing abundance fill up the greedy and the rest of society for the complete healing of Africa."
(4) - "Troubled path is not always from the devil. God may use thorns and people against you in blessing you towards his design for you on earth. You may be painfully poked, hated, ridiculed and isolated into the path set for the fulfillment of your destiny. People around you may be vehicles in the attainment of your destiny, so worship Him above and let people say and do what they like."
