Today is the birthday of a man of the people – a young man who by his propensity for selfless & charitable activities, his boundless energy, his astounding and astonishing creativity, his sportsmanship and camaraderie, his uwavering pride in his identity and a sincere love and abiding commitment to the common good of all around and beyond him has won the admiration and the friendship of the low, the high and the mighty.
Today we celebrate a phenomenon that can be mistaken for an ulaga but is, in fact, an mgbadike an innocuous and inscrutable mirage that can be mistaken for a bottle of cold water but is, in fact and indeed, a keg of gun powder.
Today, on many walls on social media and in many hearts in many villages and cities men and women are celebrating a friend of the friendless – a man that mourns with those that mourn and rejoices heartily with those that rejoice.
Today is a day to celebrate a multi-tasking bundle of talent who works hard and plays hard; a value laden man who has touched countless lives in countles ways but remains the boy next door with a smile and a hug for everyone.
Today we say _”Happy Birthday_ ” to Chief Dr. Amb. Ikenna Aniche (Nkenke Enyi Izuogu 1 – 12)
