The dunderhead sits and watches home video and uses the cast thereof as the winners of national awards...he is inviting Achebe to come home and see when he needs to leave the ceiling fans of Aso cave and see that ordinary Nigerians working hard are the real winners of awards...can the man ever get any thing right?

Some small minds on this forum are still talking about Achebe's literary contributions to the society. No one is denying him that accolade, more bravos to the elder statesman. However, in times like this we need more than personal achievement. That is the point. Just as one would like Goodluck Jonathan to do more to help the people, we need Achebe to use his position to promote change and to make economic impact "for greater good". His achievement earned him personal recognition worldwide, not enough economic impact on his people. Rather than point fingers at the sitting president, he should find an avenue to "rub brains" with him (the president) so the people could benefit more from his (Achebe's) wisdom and high echelons. The award thingy was an avenue to get words in and a probably breakthrough to making some social and economic impact. We need to look beyond past achievements - most of which were personal. For someone to say the country did nothing to help Achebe become what he is today is sad and makes me wonder the type of brains we have on this forum: If no other thing, he suckled on his mother's Bosom . Shalow minds always reason from their shalow brains.

D fact is that Achebe was wrong this time around...this award was not given to him for political reasons, but because of his own personal achievements. Jonathan is trying his best, but Achebe is demoralizing him by rejecting this award. It is not good...Prof, you were wrong..

That GEJ is facing challenges does not mean that he should shelve giving awards to those like Achebe as he is constitutionally empowered to. Prof no matter how revered you are, Nigeria will still move forward without you and when Nigeria eventually gets better as you pray it will, this award you blindly rejected may never come to you again.
