 Poem about Light Out of the Tunnel

Light Out of the Tunnel
[Tribute To Chief The Hon. Nyong Essien, 1892 – 1976]

In the dark age of colonialism
A candle lit in the tunnel
As a guiding light to emancipation.

In the robe of our nationalist dream
A candle rode among our great nationalists
With one voice to seek for our independence.

A true son of Uruan Inyang Atakpo he was
Him whose root couldn’t deter
Who says the Ibibio are minorities?

For when his peer were far asleep
He arose like a towering Iroko tree
With a foresight that buried colonialism.

Father of Nigeria Legislature
The power of laws you uphold
That we shall ever be one entity.

Founder of Ibibio State Union
Our land you filled with the educated
For your thoughts, we have seen the light.

First President Eastern Regional House of Chiefs
Our traditional customs and values you supersede
That our past, we shall ever tell in the future.

The Nsom of Uruan
Among your people you accepted their honour
For an illustrious son they say
Is known by the honour in his land of birth.

True son of your father’s land,
Akwa Abasi Ibom says sung sung-o
Nigerian says thank you
For the faith you kept makes us one nation.
