If I don’t speak the truth, no matter who is involved, then I have failed - RMD writes as he celebrates 58 birthday

Veteran actor, Richard Mofe-Damijo popularly known as RMD is celebrating his 58th birthday today, as such, the ageless handsome actor took time to reflect on his days on earth so far. 

The happy actor did not hid his admiration for Nigerians for standing up against many ills in the society, especially within his birthday week which has brought much changes, saying equally, that if after all these years he is still afraid to speak the truth then he has failed,
In his exact words as shared on his IG handle: 
“The thing about getting older is that with each passing day you know yourself better, find your voice more and generally become better aware. It’s been 58, years of stumbles, falls, wrong turns, dreadful mistakes and errors but in all, they have been 58, remarkable years of God’s consistent grace and mercies.
If after all these years I am afraid to speak the truth irrespective of whose ox is gored, then I have failed, which is why I have never been prouder of being Nigerian than I am now because Nigerians have given me the best birthday week, ever. It’s been a harvest of protests that have brought positive results.

 It indeed gives me hope that even though a lot of young people in this generation are misinformed, misguided and scaringly shallow, a lot more have their heads in the right places and I am optimistic that it can only get better, so as I reflect on my years, I pray that Proverbs chapter 31, verses 8 and 9 will guide the remaining years of my life, Amen!
