Open Letter to Abia Outgoing Governor

Dear Governor T A Orji,

By the time this letter is brought to your attention you must have vacated or about to vacate the Government house in Umuahia as the Governor of Abia state after 8 years of misrule and incompetence .It was Shakespear who once wrote that “the evil that men do lives after them'. It is my wish and I believe that of millions of Abia citizens both at home and here in diaspora that the evil you perpetrated and unleashed on the people of that state continue to follow you wherever you go and that you be constantly reminded by everyone you meet or associate with of what you did. It is also in that light that I am writing this letter so that it will be a constant reminder to you and to generations unborn that there was once a Governor like you who raped his state of its resources and finances and left it bankrupt, underdeveloped and ghetto like.

Etcetera Writes: Buhari & a New Nigeria

I wasn’t born in 1960. So, I have no memories of the euphoria of the first Independence Day. My early memories of independence are the celebrations in the small government school I attended. My well starched and ironed school uniform, national flags made of paper, singing the National Anthem, and a speech by the headmistress were the highlights. In my final year, I was allowed to pin a small flag on my shirt and hold a slightly bigger one in front of the school because I was a school prefect. Those were proud moments! Even after so many years, the pride still remains. It is totally different today.
