‘The secret of my longevity’ – 110 year-old Pa Akinbode Sadela

Papa, how does it feel to be 110 years?

Well, I feel calm.  I know I am quite healthy, my body is well and sound.  I thank God for my life.

It is obvious that you are looking strong and still talking very well.  What is the secret even at 110?

The secret is my believe in Jesus Christ.  Jesus Christ is the secret.

What advice do you have for young people, who want to live longer?

I advise them to be truthful, to have faith in God and not be hypocrites.

One world from you to Nigeria at 50?

I pray that Nigeria will be in unity and to achieve that, we must practice true federalism.
