PRINCE EZE MADUMERE PAYS TRIBUTE TO ALEX EKWUEME

Excerpts:

I STAND HERE TO PAY TRIBUTE TO THE GREAT LEADER WHO LED A SELFLESS LIFE WORTHY OF EMULATION, LATE DR. ALEX EKWUEME, FORMER VICE PRESIDENT OF NIGERIA.

HE WAS FIRST A NIGERIAN AS HE CONSIDERED NIGERIA FIRST IN ALL HIS CELEBRATED DECISIONS, ACTIONS AND INACTIONS. HIS EXCELLENCY, DR. ALEX EKWUEME, EVEN IN DEATH, REPRESENTS THE TRUE CHARACTER OF A PATRIOT, A PROGRESSIVE AND A MAN WHO SACRIFICED SO MUCH AND GAINED SO LITTLE FOR THE UNITY OF NIGERIA.

IN OUR DEMOCRATIC EXPERIENCE, HE MAINTAINED THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF DECORUM EVEN IN THE FACE OF INJUSTICE AND BETRAYAL. HE STOMACHED ALL THESE THAT NIGERIA MAY WORK AND DISCOVER ITS GREATNESS.

IN THE EYES OF THE SUPERFICIAL LESS DEEP THINKERS, EKWUEME APPEARED WEAK BUT IN THE EYES OF TRUE PATRIOTS AND MEN WITH BEAUTIFUL MINDS, EKWUEME DID NOT JUST WIN, HE CONQUERED IN ALL LIFE ENDEAVOURS THAT NIGERIA MAY BE UNITED IN BROTHERHOOD NOT AS MERE GEOGRAPHICAL EXPRESSION BUT AS A NATION RESPECTABLE IN THE COMITY OF NATIONS.

OUR GREAT LEADER, YOU MAY HAVE TRANSITED BUT YOUR MEMORY SHALL BE ENGRAVED IN THE SANDS OF TIME AND SHALL REMAIN GREEN IN THE HEART OF OUR NATION.

FARE THEE WELL A GREAT MAN OF VALOUR WHO CAME, SAW, CONQUERED AND EXITED IN GLORY.
