    Things fell apart and nothing was ever at ease, for there was once a country. The man has spoken about Nigeria and I pray his is not an epitaph for a certain country

    It is Longfellow, who once in his " Psalms of Life" said "The lives of great men, all remind us that we can make our lives sublime, and departing, leave behind us footprints on the sand of time" Chinua Achebe is one of the greatest thing that has happened to Africa. As such, he has not only left footprints on the sand of time with his many literary works, but he has planted great many giant iroko trees like himself. His characters being worthy of emulation, have inspired many unknown "prophets that have not yet bowed to baal". While we cry and mourn about his physical presence with us, let us be joyful that his spirit, representative of our great ancestors will live forever with us. Thank God for your legacies Great Chinua Achebe. Let your indomitable spirit live in every one of us. Amen.

    How thankful that we were able to honor this great son of Nigeria, Africa, and, indeed, the literary world at the 2012 Achebe Colloquium. Ever the humble giant, he received accolades from former students and international admirers with endearing smiles and nods. The legacies of the likes of Achebe and Mandela will outlive them as beacons of hope for generations to come. It yet amazes me that so many African leaders fail to learn from their selflessness, humility, and integrity. Prof. Chinua Achebe, we thank you for running an excellent race. Sleep well, Kachifo.
