One of those events you can’t miss. Attending Angelicas’ graduation: She is ‘many things’ to me not minding the fact that she doesn’t know me by person and I wouldn’t have recognized her anywhere; therefore amidst high schedules I had to be present.
I was one of the last to arrive at the venue but strangely myself and the persons that were accompanying me from the office were beckoned to the reserved front seats. I wondered why commissioners, high ranked army officers, air force officers and men, Alhajis from the north and some Igwes should seat behind me. Nenwe bu miri…you will know later.
Our daughter Angelica was gorgeous and made us proud. She won two ‘best student awards’ in English Language and Literature. One wouldn’t be happier and I couldn’t stop remembering how CHRIS (rip) was also so wonderful in those subjects during our school time.
Another award went to the V P of the institution Mrs. Okwuosa (Our own Corde Onuora) who was also the chairperson of the graduation committee. ‘A great motor to everything that happens in the school’ as the director put it.
When I looked at the program I saw a certain Prof Alimba. He was seated at the high table and ‘co chairing’ the show, I told my friends that should be a name from my ‘enclave’. When I went to greet Mrs Okwuosa there was also Okey Alimba..the Prof. I was very proud of Nenwe.
Louis Orji (whose daughter won an award at her time) and Nike Chukwu were also there.
At the closing remarks by the director of the school people were told to emulate the kind gesture of Air Vice Marshal Chukwu (absent, but fully represented)who donated generously many items to the institutions.
Who wouldn’t like to be associated to Nenwe !!!!
