USA Africa Dialogue Series - Re: Moderator's Gratitude: Samuel Zalanga

Brother Chidi,

If I may add all the two kobos' that I'm worth to our moderator's gratitude.

Why should anyone, even the most misguided apostles of parochialism be alarmed or offended by what our own Alagba Baba, Professor Toyin Falola says about Dr. Samuel Zalanga's always edifying contributions, that, "Hopefully, the standard that he has established will be retained, and the misguided warriors of parochialism among us will learn from him."

If the Almighty were to ask me to identify just one person in this forum who should represent me, represent the voice of the poor, the marginalised, the wretched, I would suggest Samuel...

Is it good? Is it fair? With Samuel, the moral and the ethical is important. What constantly impresses me (and I have read all of his postings on this forum) is the politeness, sincerity, humility and consideration of others that often shines through the honesty of personal experience and serious reflection that is at the root of his lucid contributions, as he illuminates a subject - from the vantage point of his specialisations ( unlike some of the pseudo-holy men who consistently manipulate even mythological evidence to bolster their cherished, sometimes untenable, evanescent, myopic points of view...

I found myself wishing that he had been included in the panel that discussed Contemporary African Immigrants in the United States

I least expected this type of statement from the moderator.
