    What a great loss! First it was Prophet Obadare, follwed by chief Bayo Akinnola and now Prof. Chinua Achebe, these men lived very well. For prof Achebe, its like his 3 most populous books,When the arrow of God is no longer at ease then things fall apart, RIP Professor of our modern day literatture.

    my mother once told me that back in the days when people do not truely know God,Africans were more sincere for fear of what the spirits of their ancestors might do to them but 2day, not just that we have
    bad people but bad leaders. pro.Achebe has done his own by rejecting our worthless national honour.I hope our leaders will learn from a great personality as Achebe. I thank him for choosing to die with honour.
