IN RARE REUNION, GOV. SOLUDO HOSTS HIS PRIMARY 3 TEACHER

Published

on

Below is a personal account of Governor Chukwuma Soludo’s account of hosting his primary three teacher, at the Government House, Awka:

I had the rare privilege of hosting my Primary three (3) class teacher today at the Governor’s lodge, Amawbia. Lady (Dr) Mebirim, from Ahiazu Mbaise, taught me at Nigercem Primary School, Nkalagu, in today’s Ebonyi State.

It is true that the reward of Teachers is in heaven. However, I always tell my friends that it is good to, atleast, give them advance payment here on earth first.

Mrs. Mebirim took me through nosltagic reminiscence of my days as a Primary 3 pupil. I am glad to have her around, she didn’t forget to remind me of the need to remain a “good boy”.

In all you do, never forget your Teacher. I remember clearly all my Primary school Teachers; Mr. Aguwa from Mbaise, taught me in Primary one, Mr. Odoh from Izza mgbo taught me in Primary two, of course Mrs. Mebirim from Mbaise taught me in Primary three, Mr. Agu from Udi taught me in Primary four, Mr. Nwaukwa from Ngwa taught me in primary five, then Mr. Chukwulozie from Ihiala taught me in Primary six. My Headmaster was Mr. I. Chineke.

I cherish these respected persons for their roles in shaping who I have become today. May God bless them immensely.

Published

on

It is a glorious moment of excitement, joy, and happiness to friends, family, and us at WORDSandSHOTS as Gertrude Wordshot Amaechi Ugwele, the amiable wife of our founder and Chief Executive, Wordshot Amaechi Ugwele, celebrates her birthday today.

Gerty, as she is fondly called by many, is always a delightful encounter, who is as doting as she is dutiful, hence her presence in our man’s life is a gift as precious as the life it takes to experience and appreciate her pricelessness. That is why he is Wordshot and she is Wordshotess!

Indeed, we celebrate her because her humanity knows no bound. We celebrate her because she is as loving and caring a mother, as she is lovable as a friend.

Cheers to our special one, a rare gem whose general dispositions easily lend her to the world.

Congratulations!
