GOODNIGHT, AFRICAN “SOLDIER”

By Desmond Ekwueme

GOODNIGHT, AFRICAN “SOLDIER”

Koffi Annan, you came, you saw and you conquered! You led the world as No. 1 personality, Secretary General of the United Nations between January 1997 to December 2006. You left your footprints on the sands of time even after your exit. The world was convinced after your tenure at the UN that Africa is gifted and blessed with visionary leaders despite the power-drunk sit-tight “madness” displayed by many of her sons.
You were exemplary yet outstanding. A shinning light for Africa that even death cannot extinguish nor dim. You played politics at the highest level. You chose politics of sweetness and oneness….certainly not that of bitterness. Many non-African leaders say “Annan is black but has a white heart”. You are a man of peace. You used peace to fight many battles and you won. Indeed, you are a “soldier of peace”
A master of international diplomacy who tried to keep the world united in the face of aggression by defiant nations some of which are superpowers. Severally, there were attempts to coerce and gag you against your will and the UN laws to bend the rules and endorse the oppression and aggression of weaker countries by their stronger enemies, but, you stood your ground and preached the gospel of peace and one love. You reminded the superpowers of the rights of sovereign nation which forbids any bullish act by another or outright invasion.


What a man you are! What a leader you were! What a UN Secretary General you were! What an African you were! As you journey to the great beyond, say Africans well to Nelson Mandela, Patrice Lumumba, Kwame Nkrumah and Thomas Sankara among others.
Adieu African soldier!
