    What a colossal exit of a rare GEM. May God grant his soul a perfect repose.

    There is no one else like Emmanuel Obiechina among the friends, colleagues, teachers, intellectuals, nationalists and seekers I have met within and outside the academy since I first knew him in 1967. His self-effacing humility is matched by his absolute honesty, extraordinary perspicasity and unyielding assidousness in the pursuit of excellence in whatsever task he undertakes. Always rooting for the younger generation of scholars and artists, he remained ever young at heart and passionate about any new idea that comes within his ken. He will be sorely missed by us all who have loved him and will forever cherish him as a loving and trustworthy brother, uncle, father and leader. Ichie Obiechina, biko nodu mma.
