[Commentary] The Storms Are Over!

By Franklyn Isong


L-R: Mr George Essien, Rose Akai, Prof. Robert Dode and Otuekong Franklyn Isong after the Thursday edition of Comfort 95.1 FM ‘Issues-In-The-News’, in Uyo.

Barely 24 hours after your birthday, the Appointment and Promotion Committee, of the University of Uyo, today, Friday, September 13, 2019, has officially released your promotion to the rank of Professor of Political Science, according to information made available to me.

As your friend and brother, who has been on this matter with you, from the beginning of the journey, I chose to celebrate this very promotion with you, because, I can attest that, the journey to it was not a tea party.

A lot of bridges were crossed; so many challenges were faced; tribulations were surmounted; and battles (physical and spiritual) were fought and defeated, before you clinched this promotion.

Congratulations to the Head of Department, Political Science, University of Uyo, Professor Robert Oghenedoro Dode.

This is the light at the end of the tunnel.
