 “As a young man in the mid-90s, we don’t allow children to stay with us but there was an exception, ‘Abayomi’. We do allow him to gist with us which he did so well. The normal talks of Abayomi is a purely distilled thought coming from an organized thought process that up till now I don’t understand where it is coming from and how they work on his mind as he releases them through his mouth. Watching him talk now that I am in my 50s gives me good feeling whenever I remember him as a little child. He was a PRODIGY neglected by our system, he could have shaken the world. To discard his talks no matter how casual is to be dead to real reality and common sense, that boy is a blessed child*”
