Charly Boy: I am a Buddhist, Not a church Goer, not to disgrace anybody

We learnt  Okorocha paid you a visit at your place?

How can he visit my place when he has my telephone number? He should know I don’t reside here (in the village) and I have not returned home. It’s just a phone call, ‘Charles where are you? And I would tell him where I am. After all, he’s always in Abuja. What stopped him from putting a call across to me?
If he doesn’t know how to reach me even a truck pushers have my number, how much more the governor of a state?  If  he has a desire to contact anybody, he will do so with ease. How could he embark on a  journey to a place he is not familiar with?  These are the things we are talking about.
He didn’t deem it necessary to contact the bereaved family that he was paying us a condolence visit  before embarking on the journey. And when he came, he talked to one  ‘village boy’ who claimed to be representing the family. What’s all that rubbish for?

Was it what informed your action at the funeral service?
First of all, I am not a church goer. I am a Buddhist, though I was born into the Catholic doctrine. And part of my reason for not going to church is the fact that I have been to a lot of churches. For the first 20 years of my life, I was a mass servant. I was an ‘altar boy’ because my father was a disciplinarian.  If you don’t go to morning mass, you are bound to be in trouble.
I did all that for 20 years, and that’s the kind of background I was coming from. But things have changed regarding the mode of worship in most churches. They spend more time than necessary. Why should we be praying for two to three hours non-stop? I have other things to do.  At the funeral service, I was told that Mr. President’s representatives and other dignitaries have arrived my home town.
Unfortuantely, one of my legs was paining me, and that was why, if you were in church that day, I was sitting down throughout. People didn’t understand why I was sitting down. I couldn’t stand up for too long. Now, we have spent about two to three hours in the church. We couldn’t afford to give all the politicians that attended the funeral rites the opportunity to pay tribute to my late father. I felt the only person who should deliver a speech was Mr. President’s representative.
At that point, I was so stressed and tired. All I wanted was to commit my father’s remains into the mother earth. So, I insisted, as  the eldest son  of Justice Oputa, I decide how things were going to be done. At that point, I said please, no more talk, it’s too much, let one person speak so we can go and finish the business. That was what happened but you know people will misinterpret it. That is their business, not mine.
