Father of girl who died after having seven A1s in WAEC writes her a touching tribute

The father of Chisom Chukwuneke, the girl who had seven A1s in the 2019 WAEC examination, has paid her a touching tribute.

Sharing his tribute on Facebook, her dad who had flown her out to South Africa to have a leg surgery explained how the illness started and then paid her a touching tribute.

“ANGELIC EXIT OF A GENIUS

Just like a dream.

But the realities are crystal now

Just a pain on the leg.

That snowballed to a devastating episode,

The battle started earnestly

I hear you call daddy my leg is paining me.

I watch as you lie abed with pains

As restless and worried as I can be,

I promised to do everything humanly possible

With glaring poor health care in Nigeria

off we went to South Africa.

We were happy at your initial recovery.

Not knowing the war was just to begin

We fought it together for more than a year in SA,

You were an embodiment of intelligence of inestimable value

Above all an indefatigable personality

Courageous in the face of glaring uncertainty.

You were strong and philosophical

My strength and motivation even in sickness

You wanted your dad freed while you go on to rest,

In the bosom of our Lord

Where there is no more pain

You spoke in parables about a special gift 10 days earlier,

and left a day to my birthday.

Never did I know your special birthday gift,

You promised was your Glorious exit.

You exhibited your virtuoso and dazzling intellects,

to the bewilderment of the doctors at Wits Donald Gordon Hospital Parktown Johannesburg South Africa

Today your name is written in Gold over there.

Like a shining light in the tunnel,

having a dream for an African Child,

with less privilege and opportunity like you,

to access good health care.

This your dream I must ensure

Forever the strong one’s been you.

Physically no more but everywhere with us

We are with you, you are with us

Farewell to His glory Enyinnia

Daddy’s Girl

always in our hearts,

you will remain.

Prof. Felix Chukwuneke”
