Governor Sam Mbakwe’s legacies revisited

Chief Samuel Onunaka Mbakwe (1929-2004) was the first civilian governor of Imo State. He served in that capacity between 1979 and 1983. 

His legacies include: 

  1. The Imo Modern Poultry
  2. Adapalm
  3. Imo State University (now Abia State University)
  4. Imo Cargo Airport (built with a development levy on all Ndi Imo then).

As a politician, you must try to build a legacy. Let the impact of your life last longer than your life itself. Let people keep talking and posting blogs about you after you are gone from the scene politicaly or permanently.

How can they do that if you don’t live behind a legacy? Think about that. 

Trump, Clinton to clash at final debate

The debate that would soon be happening is Trump’s chance to bounce back, and Hillary Clinton’s chance to seal the deal.

Will Trump be presidential like when he met with Mexican President, Pena Nieto, or would he be the combative Donald that fought his way out of the crowded Repuican primaries months who.

Nobody but Trump knows what style he would employ today, and facing a super-skilled debater like Hillary Clinton means even he may not know what style he should use.

Anyway, very soon the fireworks begin.
