There is a rather big event coming up in our little village area. Our friend the General, the Chief of Army Staff for all Nigeria, has his fathers burial in a few weeks. As the family is from Ovim, the village neighboring our Amamba, the whole of Isuikwuato Local Government has been bustling with activity in preparation, as the father will be buried here in his home place. It is an extremely high-profile event, with about 10,000 people in attendance, namely the most important, Mr. President Goodluck Jonathan.
I have been honoured with a personal request to be in attendance at the two day event, which I will have a personal SS detail to escort me.
It will be an opportunity to pay my respects to the General, who has become and advocate and supporter of TWCFN, as well as an opportunity to network with more individuals regarding our work.
