Taking the current issues of land dispute that keeps escalating and aggravating on a daily basis to cognizance, you will agree with me that the tru meaning of today’s proverb Should be embrace by all and sundry.
The Proverb Igede in language ?
Onu omile mile, ohio apa nepwa bopyi le.
The English Translation of the Proverb ?
“It is a gentle motion that an earthworm uses to live with the soil”
Just as the direct translation is, it is the cordial relationship between the earthworm and the soil/ground that made them live together. There must be an agreement for two to be able to live together and that agreement should be as flexible as possible.

If there was no agreement between an earthworm and the ground, what strength does an earthworm has to dig the ground and enter into it? The same thing is applicable to human beings. Our lives is like a snap of finger in the Lord’s side. So, what are we now fighting for? For a piece of land that each person’s own doesn’t exceed six feet?
Odumwo dumwo, onu omile mile owa ohio akaa kpa nepwa bopyi le. Anu alinyahi, ahi kpa odumwo dumwo hoo me. Ohe ka juwa t’olIgede iga miiga ole ko ji. Ko la inyi me. (Amen)
