Tribute to Literary Icon Prof Chinua Achebe

In 1966 he predicted in his book "a man of the people" that there would be a coup, it came to pass as the first Republic was chased out by the military. He warned us that things will "fall apart" and it did in 1967 as Nigeria and the breakaway Republic of Biafra went to war, before joining his ancestors, he hinted us that "there was a country" and they all criticized him for being too sentimental in favour of his ethnic group (Igbo). Now the literary icon is gone for good, you can run the show the way you like, but remember, He rejected National honours because of the rot and massive corruption in governance, he refused to come back to his homeland because of insecurity and lull in academic enterprise in the once notable citadels of learning, he continues to be an icon even in death. Rest in peace Prof. Albert Chinụalụmọgụ Achebe...laa n'udo.
