*Thank You, Gov. Obi
I wish to use this medium to express to you, Gov. Peter Obi of Anambra State, my own State, my hearty congratulations, as well as my immense gratitude for your wise and bold educational and academic revolution in our Anambra State by Your Government returning the schools to the Missions. How great and best is this in the history of Anambra State!! Words are not enough to express the immensity of my joy at listening to the radio announcement and newspaper reports of this educational revolution.
All your achievements in Anambra State have been crowned by this particular event.
There is another revolution I will advise you to launch in our State, and that is the Agricultural Revolution, otherwise known as Agrarian Revolution, the type which Doctor. Mike Okpara, the Premier of Former Eastern Nigeria launched in 1962 in the then Eastern Nigeria. Premier Mike Okpara launched what he described as his "Quinquennial Agrarian Revolution" (1962-1967).
In this Agricultural Revolution, the Government of Eastern Nigeria during the regime of Doctor Mike Okpara, fully and successfully utilized farmers, Multipurpose Cooperative Societies, Cooperative Community Farms and Cooperative Farm Settlements to increase the production of food crops and also cash crops. The Agrarian Revolution of Premier Doctor Mike Okpara was very successful. He achieved massive, accelerated, tremendous and unprecedented production of food crops, as well as cash crops, flooding Eastern Nigeria and its environs, with abundance of foodstuffs, livestock and eggs, thus turning Eastern Nigeria into a land flowing with milk and honey.
I participated in drafting the memo, with which the then Eastern Nigeria Government lunched the Cooperative Farm Settlement Scheme in 1963. I was the First Cooperative Officer to supervise Igbariam Cooperative Farm Settlement in1963.
This is my third letter to you on your praiseworthy performances in our Anambra State. The first was when you got elected for the first term of office. The second is when you scaled through the impeachment imbroglio, and the third is this letter of congratulation and gratitude for your widely acclaimed educational/academic revolution, which is well- spoken of in the highest terms.
Keep the flag flying and do not be distracted by detractors.
