Soon after we met to discuss tribes and legends? How did it happen? why did it happen? why an unfinished discussion?
You ferried me like Moses by the cargo of Ibibio Literature Adorned with the fodder of oral tradition till I came to this Jordan on my way to the promised land why an unfinished discussion?
My lips bid you fare well to please time-honoured tradition my heart is mute and heavy in disbelief of this awful news Where do I see you now? Icon, father and mentor in Ngugi's Kenya that you loved or in the bone-freezing coolness of Leeds? Are you in Nkrumah's Ghana where you sojourned?
Icon, father and mentor, we did not finish the discussion!
