Anambra Times | News at your doorstep..

In rueful obeisance we bow
Reflecting on our last colloquy
With Ide, Dr. Alex Ifeanyichukwu Ekwueme (GCON)
Couple of weeks to his 85th birthday
Where he eloquently shared his thoughts
On issues pertaining to our Country and State.
Ide, one of the brightest stars
To be hosted by our sky.
We shudder as we recall
How the encumbrance of old age
Neither hindered his physical nor mental agility.
His appetite for morning lawn tennis exercise was palpable.
Cloud-haired and soft spoken,
His mind remained as fertile as a manure field,
His grasp of historical diary was humongous
Just as his politics was insightful.
A scholar of huge profundity

And a highly successful professional.
