Sefi, you have lived such a long life. Much longer than anyone else. How did you manage to do that?

Yes, I have already repeatedly told everyone who asked me this question (journalists are constant guests in my house). It's all about clean blood vessels. My dear old friend Ben told me that, back before the war. Ben lived here, he was a herbalist. All the folks from all around would come to him for help, people came even from neighboring towns. But then he got drafted into the army to fight in the war and never came back... We used to be neighbors. He would come over in the evenings usually for tea and we would chat. It was he who told us how to help with pain in this or that part of the body. I had a sister back then. She had some issues with her health. My parents cleaned her blood vessels and subsequently she got better. Ever since then we’ve been sure that clean vessels are the key to excellent health and our whole family would have them cleaned regularly. Unfortunately both our parents died in a tragic accident in 1987. And my sister also lived for a long time, but less than me. She died when she was 95. I also made sure all my kids knew the importance of keeping their vessels clean.
Therefore, the secret of longevity lies in the vessels; they need to be cleaned from time to time. But nobody does that, that’s why they die early. This is especially true for the elderly that reside in cities. They love to take loads of pills and think that they will help them. When I visited my granddaughter in Abuja, I was very surprised by this. People are only 60 but they’re all ill. That’s pills for ya - nothing but toxic chemicals. But if they cleaned their vessels, they would be healthy and active, just like me.[NewsNaira]
