congratulations Ngie Didimus Tantoh

Nelson Mandela once said that " A good head and good heart are always a formidable combination. But when you add to that a literate tongue or pen, then you have something very special.”  This is perphaps one of the most inspirational quotes to sauce the success story of Ngie Didimus Tantoh who just graduated in flying colours with a Master Arts in International relations at the Eastern Mediterranean University in Turkey. Bravo Mon Frere. But nothing could capture this great achievement more than the lenses of Rudyard Kipling which could spice this. To Rudyard “if you can keep your head when all around you are losing theirs and if you can meet with triumph and disaster and treat the two the same, yours is earth and everything that is in it”.  There is no doubt that Kipling had in mind the success story of brilliant young boys who have stood the taste of time to accomplish their dreams like Ngie. Rudyard Kipling surely had this inspiration from the fact that education demands alot of sacrifices given that majority would tumble on the way and never get up. The few who succeed have to be encouraged.
If you are looking for someone who has been able to draw his knees up and had passed comfortable nights in the blanket far away from home to add a literate tongue and pen to his head, I know one. His name is Ngie Didimus Tantoh. His graduation on February 9, 2015 is a historical object. I feel he is going to be the most trusted expert. After spending years without pulling or hauling off his feet the blanket of books, Ngi Tantoh entered into records yesterday as he graduates with a Master Degree from one of the most prestigous educational institutions in Turkey. In fact nothing defines a workaholic than his dedication to accomplish something. After obtaining a degree at the Buea University in 2013, he has always admired Ph.D holders and he is now just a step to be one.  That he graduated in flying colours is not surprising to those who know of what stuff he is made. What is important about this young and talented young graduate is that his brain is a relic which makes him a webster. If we go by Albert Einstein's desctiption of a genius which is 1/10 inspiration and 9/10 perspiration, Ngie Didimus Tantoh is a genius. In this light, Didi stans out tall from th madding crowd for his story, if not the story of graduates who this generation could look up to as role models will remain incomplete. What inescapably catches your attention when you first meet this young lavender from Mbum land in Donga Mantung is his strive to always look back home. Being a youth emancipator of this generation, he knows too well what is good, attractive and inspiring. And truely it takes years of hard-work to smile. Take it for overconfidence and you are wrong. Bravo and Congratulations brother.
