KARIBO MOURNS THE FADING AWAY OF POST OFFICE IN NIGERIA!



All my life, l have used the Post Office just once. It was in 2013. I had won the online poetry competition organized by Kukogho Iruesiri Samson for one of the months in that year, and my prize( his book-- WHAT CAN WORDS DO) was to be transported to me down South. I had the privilege of understanding the very meaning and essence of a PO box and Postal Address -- even though, years before then, l saw such write-ups on signboards. I also learned what a Postal Parcel means. It was a whole new world of exquisite experience that opened up for me; while l tried reaching for my prize. I was a grownup already at the time l got the exposure and it, somehow, left me feeling guilty. For learning late. Today, l walked past a popular Post Office in Port Harcourt and the building has been brought down. A petrol Station stands there now. I am left with many questions, but chief among them is, " are the things that matter slowing dying off"?

i am Goodnews Mememugh Karibo!
