    Sit, you just fuelled my anger and I am asking again, Who asked that History should be removed from our list of Subjects. Ernest Okonkwo should take centre space in History. The sales of transistor radios increased in Nigeria because of Ernest Okonkwo's commentaries. I so move that Ernest Okonkwo should be duely recognised and immortalised.

    I don't think we can have somebody like him because he was well informed about the players profile before any match he would run commentary on.He was a gifted football commentator.RIP.

    That was the time we put on the television set radio on at the same time because of the quality that Ernest Okonkwo added to football commentary. Watching football matches live without the radio commentary of this great man was nothing to write home about. Live on my hero.

    some of his notable quotes are : mehala has seen wahala , this is a game of Christians...... referring to christian chukwu and Christian Madu in a match among others. may he continue to rest in peace.

    For some of us Who witnessed and listened to his commentary Over Radio in regard to Sports, we have not seen any one. Like you just said, you tune your television down and listen to the commentary of that match which will make it as if you're in Stadium.

    This treatise on Ernest Okonkwo is aptly captured and like the writer opined, Ernest should be immortalized as a way of appreciation towards his impeccable service to the nation. He also deserves a posthumous national honors award.
