Press Statement From H.E. Dame Virgy Etiaba.


The passing on of Prof. Chinua Achebe is yet another tragedy that has befallen not just the Ibo nation but Nigeria as a Country.

His demise coming at this time when the President is leading the campaign for resurrection of reading culture, this is one death to many.

My prayer is that his ideals and his achievement in the literary world will be sustained by us the living.

While I commensurate with the family, Mr. President, Anambra State Governor and the entire people of Anambra State. I pray that Ndi Anambra will not see or experience such exit again. I also pray for the family. IT IS WELL WITH US.

22ND MARCH, 2013.
