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 !!!!
Good morning
