The drums are out.
The beatings are wild.
The rhythm too.
And so are the dancers.
The feeling is indescribable.
At last, Imo is freeeeee!
The placenta is out and buried.
The ugly placenta bent on destroying both the baby and the womb.
The freedom was planted by many.
Men, Women, the old, the young, all resolved to give birth to a new healthy baby.
And it found a courageous womb in Emeka Ihedioha – a dogged fighter.
The labour was long.
Anxiety boiled over.
But our trust in God was unshakeable.
And, patiently we waited.
The baby was finally birthed last night.
The pains, eight years long, are forgotten.
Emperor Rochas Okorocha is on his way out of the empire.
And we couldn’t be happier than we are.
Victory couldn’t be sweeter than this.
And give all thanks to God.
Congratulations to the Rt. Hon. Emeka Nkem Ihedioha, the in-coming governor of Imo state.
It is a new beginning.
Good morning Imolites.
Comfort Obi, OON.
