Legend Dimgba Igwe lives
From Cmrd Madukwe Emmanuel: Pastor and a prolific writer Dimgba Igwe will forever lives in the minds of good people of Nigeria. When a cousin of my called me on saturday and was telling me of my Uncle's death( Dimgba Igwe) I couldn't believe it, I aborted the call only to see it as a breaking news I couldn't have believed my eyes but later it was an established fact that my great uncle, Pastor Dimgba Igwe is dead. Tears couldn't stop flowing because many of us see him as our nearest god and the god we can see and talked to. 6 September, 2014( Saturday) would be indelible in our minds. Indeed the Ndi Oke Family in Umuikpo in Okafia Autonomous community, Igbere of Bende LGA in Abia State has really loss an illustrious son, a man who shoulders others burdens as if they are his. Dimgba Igwe maybe dead but he is forever alive in our minds, his legacies both to Journalism profession and to lives that he touched will definitely speak of him. The man who brought me to the world of Journalism, the man who could give all just to make others happy. My boss, father and Uncle who should I run to now? who is ready to give me the listen ears as you always do? Dem Dimgba you should have stayed a little longer for us, I'm devastated can't differentiate between left and right because of the Country where even hospitals lack equipment to save life but on TV and on radio you keep hearing billions and billions sink into the health sector but no implementation, it is an evidence that life is worthless in this part of the world and we still claim to be giant of Africa. It is only in this country that crazy people are given the license to drive just imagined the crazy driver that took life out of Pastor Dimgba Igwe as he was trying to keep fit. With sadness and bitterness of heart I said boss, Uncle and pastor may your gentle soul rest in peace. Amen. Journalism history in this country won't be complete if your name isn't mention because you have imprint your name in the sand of time. This irreparable loss can never be recovered. A loss the nation. Adieu Dem Dimgba Igwe.
