Today, as people across Nigeria and outside both family, friends and foes bidding farewell to the late Governor General of Izon Nation Diepreye Solomon Peter Alamieyeseigha in his home town Amassoma in Bayelsa State. We join them likewise to bid this man who history and generations to come will remember – his life and story shall be spoken about in the market places, village squares, cities and countries (near and afar).
As true blood Izon tribe sons and daughters, we want to join our voice to admonish the current Izon leaders and those coming behind the ranks that whatever you do, ensure (intrinsic) it is about human beings (lives) development and improvement. Don’t be sidetracked by the vanity of this life – don’t be disheartened when the wicked prosper – surely their end is destruction. We are aware there are many commentators will have a thing or two to say about this Izon Icon but this we know posterity is fair to all – his legacies shall speak either good or bad.
We are reminded of this Psalm by King David “what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him? Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor. You have given him dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under his feet, all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field, the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea, whatever passes along the paths of the seas. O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!” Psalms 8:4-9 ESV
We hope he made peace with his Creator and people. Adieu and Rest In Peace our Governor General Diepreye Solomon Peter Alamieyeseigha 16 November 1952 – 10 October 2015.
May Spirit of God comfort those he left behind!
