C O D Ekwensi
Nkwelle Ezunaka in Oyi Local Government area of Anambra State, the home town of the late literary icon and novelist, Chief Cyprian Odiatu Duaka Ekwensi, played host to an unprecedented crowd on January 4, 2008 as people from all walks of life gathered to pay their last respect to the pharmacist, broadcaster and story teller.
It was amid a fuzzy harmattan that the corpse of the late novelist arrived at his hill-top country home with some of his close relations and other sympathizers trying to hold back tears that rolled freely down their cheeks.
However, the burial was generally seen as a celebration of life well spent, going by the caliber of people and the testimonies from those who attended the funeral.
Atlanta 2007 has come and gone!
Success is not measured in terms of money realized alone
even though fund raising was one of the main reasons for staging a convention in the first place.
How successful was Atlanta 2007?
Is the answer in the number of Nkwelle Ezunaka citizens that turned up for the convention from all parts of the nation – Massachusetts, Illinois, California, Oklahoma, North Carolina, Maryland, Kansas, South Carolina, Louisiana, Texas, Florida, Georgia, etc.?
Is it in the number of new registrants – Obi Okafor from Kansas, Okey Okafor and Peter Okoye from Texas, etc.?
Is it in the lessons learned on the basics of a successful organization and hosting of a national convention?
It is all of the above and more.
