POEM TO NNAMDI KANU THE GREAT
You became a seed of success, a seed that rapidly grew to inspire and empower Biafrans and the nation.
A man so great at heart, one who always lead by example. You gave us courage and strength to sojourn on and be stronger even in the face of your travails.
Nnamdi Kanu, You made the impossible to be possible. Even after many years of oppression, you fought for freedom of expression and right to self determination for Biafrans. You taught us to forgive our friends and even enemies despite all the hardship we face as a nation.
Thank you Nnamdi Kanu for choosing to stand out from the rest. You became a rose that rose between the thorns of slavery and discrimination, you made us unite as a nation, a hero for all, living in Africa, father of a great nation (Biafra) and loved by millions of people around the world.
Your words of wisdom will forever live in us, never to depart. Thank you Nnamdi Kanu for giving us freedom, dignity, wisdom and will-power to move forward. Your legacy will forever live on.
The shout for freedom reign and reverberates in Africa, because of your struggles.
You have proven to be a freedom fighter, husband, an icon, a friend and a father to all Biafrans !
Never have I touched your hand, but i feel your touch from a distance, very warm and reassuring.
Even when the dark clouds approached, you ushered in light and drove away darkness from Biafrans.
Like a strong shield, you protected the nation and Biafrans from the jaw of extinction and gave Biafrans hope. Seeking peace and reconciliation, not only among Biafrans, but also the sons and daughters of Africa.
Opening doors which were closed and paving way for an ancient kingdom of the most high on earth (Biafra) destined to be restored.
The father of all nations, our guide, the protector of Africa and Biafrans.
You are more than unique,
You are more than a conqueror,
You are everyone’s dream,
You are our role model.
You did the impossible that no man can do, even when all Biafrans thought that all hope was lost.
You sacrificed your life for us.
One year in prison is no joy, but to you it was just the beginning of a new and good life,
Birth of a united Biafra,
Of a free country,
A country where everyone is welcome!
Without you, we wouldn’t have made it thus far,
We wouldn’t be having the life we have today,
We wouldn’t have succeeded in this struggle.
Unity lies within you, forgiveness is what you are.
You are the greatest, you showed us that there is more to life than the pain we felt during slavery. Chai..... Chai......
You showed us the brighter side of the world, eventhough you trembled and fell, you never gave up,
You kept on going, you gave your all.
What you did is amazingly amazing....
my goodness me.... (That is your word)..
We will forget to forget you and
Remember to remember you always.
We will fight to death for your release when the time comes. You walked great steps.
Now it’s time for us to follow them, you will live forever in our hearts, your legacy will live forever.
We love you NNAMDI KANU THE GREAT
