ABIA STATE IS THE IGBO CONSCIENCE
Home of Dr. M.I. Power Okpara.
Home of amazing Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
Home of Enyimba City.
Home of the Giant Killers.
Home of the Igbo Conscience.
Home of courage, truth, and resilience.
Your imposed Hausa-Fulani Governors,
Denied you good roads, hospitals, water,
Turned your cities into refuse dumps,
And turned off the electric supply.
Yet you lead the nation in education,
And excelled in ingenuity and resourcefulness.
If the feudalistic Nigerian Government,
Cannot stifle your spirit of achievements,
Neither will its tanks and killer squads.
Your sacrifice for your tribe is etched in diamond.
Igbos remain grateful for bringing the iniquities,
Bestowed on the Igbo nation to world attention.
Your sacrifices are not in vain,
Thank you for giving us Iheonukara Okpara.
Thank you for Nnamdi Kanu.
Thank you for Aba.
Thank you for Umuahia.
You are the Igbo conscience.
