  1. I WAS NOT ONLY REALLY SAD AND COOL WHEN I GOT THE NEWS ON THE PAPERS WHILE GLANCING AT THE MELEN KIOSK BUT EQUALLY CONFUSED THESAME APRIL 27 2016. SOMEHOW, IT IS CERTAIN THAT HIS TIME WAS UP AND JUST AS THE FATE OF MAN, WE SEE THAT DEAD COMES IN HERE AS A FRIEND AND NOT AN ENEMY. WE ONLY FEAR PAIN AND THE GAP IN WHICH WE LEAVE VOID. BUT AMONGS ALL OUR COTEMPLATION, WE SEE THAT HIS TIME TO CONTINUE HIS CREATION WAS RUNNING AND SO WE ARE HAPPY THAT HE HAS REUNITED WITH HIS MASTER. HE WAS A POLITICAL GURU OF THE SOUTHWEST WHO HELPED BUILT MANY ALTHOUGH TODAY ONLY SHAMELESSLY TURN ROUND TO FIGHT HIM INSTEAD OF THANKING HIM. HE WAS A RALLYING FORCE, A BUILDER, AND LOYAL SOCIAL INSTRUCTOR. NO DOUBT HIS ‘CAPO DI TUTI CAPI’, PROF TITUS EDZOA LOVED HIM SO MUCH AS AN EXAMPLE TO EMULIATE. LET THE HOOVES OF THE LIGHT OF PROF AGBOR TABI SHINES TOWARDS THE GREATNESS OF HIS ACHIEVEMENT SO THAT HE WILL ALWAYS BE REMEMBERED. ‘ADIEU MAI DOCTORE MAGNIMUS’ SALUTE.

  2. A man who has kept an indelible mark in the political and educational fingerprints of the Republic,May his soul RIP.
