"ANGALA" WILL TOMORROW EVER COME? By HON. ENEMI GEORGE


Hon. Enemi Alabo George


ANGALA
Angala sits on the edge the shores
Drenched in agony from all she has lost.
With vigour she claws the clay
Fighting to stay
So she too is not washed away.
She’s lost in evocation
Reliving the exuberant circus of the limbless vertebrates
From different corners of her aquatic stadium.
But that was then.
Now she brawls with rue
She bewails her dwelling place
Which once was home indeed
And home truly it was.
Angala wails!
She’s battered beyond the carrying capacity
Of her unbending tenacity
Oh! The pestilence on her persistence.
Today, she watches the gambol of her amphibious goby
As he romps on the lustrous quilt of rude crude
Which now separates him from the comfort of his viscous sludge
The gloop which once was his playground
And the cheers of his cheerful muddy chair.
Will tomorrow ever come?

The Niger Delta As A Microcosm Of Nigeria | Eugene Abels | TEDxPortHarcourt

Despite being abundant in human and natural resources, violence and decline in development prevail in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. In this talk, Eugene Abels invites us to stop pointing fingers at governments, unite and reflect on our history and also, to change our thought patterns, attitudes and habits in order to create the community/nation we want.

A deliberate Change Agent and technocrat committed to international best practices who has in three decades traversed the Real, Banking and Public Sectors of the Nigerian Economy, Eugene Irefa Abels was born, bred and schooled in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. He hails from two oil producing Communities, Nembe and Finima and believes that they are a microcosm of the Niger Delta Region.

An exponent of the need to exorcise our Colonial past from the souls of our public servants and elected officials, he believes the art of governance has been reduced to the single person pronoun ‘I’ whereas ‘we the people’ holds no relevance.
