Timothy Asobele, S.J.
It I my honour to deliver this speech or keynote address during the First I( Kabba Book Fair, this morning, Friday 19" December of the year of Our Lord 2003. Books we know link man to man, nation to nation and people to people. The man with book knowledge has access to good health without which there Is no talk of prosperity. This is because ignorance is a disease and we need to wage a war sans merci against ignorance (WAI). Book knowledge gives access to power, that is to say, education accords us power, prestige, honour and glory. It is that glory of Kabba city that my complete works epitomize (that is the microcosm of the macrocosm we) that makes us to invite you to this First Kabba Book Falrthis morning. Our slogan for this book Fair as you already know from our widely distributed handbill is: Book Power, Book Knowledge, Book Prestige, Book Honour, Book Glory for Kabba Youths. A book per Kabba City Family for the knowledge of who we are. The last sentence is to be Interpreted to mean: Please go away with some purchased calabashes of the Wisdom of our forefathers as documented by me in my more than one hundred works, of which only forty have been published to date.
