  1. An intellectual writer has left us,his books and novels are well.indeed Achebe has created a vacum in the life of students.you journeyd to the land of the great beyond as a great man.Good bye we all say.

  2. Here is my last respect for Prof. Chinua Achebe.

    We av lost a great writter, hearing abt ur death ws so bitter.
    U were a role model to many young Nigerians, and we can’t forget ur impact on Africans.
    Ur life has been an exemplary one, we all wish u are not yet gone.
    Ur service to humanity can’t be replaced no matter how try we could, because u have left behind a big vacuum.
    Ur shoes are too big for anyone to step in, but u av given us a clue on how to live in this life that we are in.
    No matter ow bad we find ourselve in this nation, we take solace in ur words and we’ll try to make things right in this generation.
    Throughout the burial we couldn’t find Jonathan, why didn’t he come for ur funeral?
    Who knows? Nobody! Guess his conscience won’t make him do so.
    He doesn’t know ur worth cos I don’t think he read any of ur books, can’t blame him though he wore no shoes to school.
    Someone who read some of ur literatures won’t lead this country to a state of confusion
    I know u’ll be looking down on Nigeria with grief, cos all the labours of our heroes past is fading away very brief.
    Anyways, ur legacies live on and ur light continue to shine on!
    God loves you and we all miss you
