Collins Aiterebhe

Biography: ...I recall the pernicious vent of inanity, an attorney of songs; a kiss of imaginative empathy that dwells occasionally in artistic isolation!

Do Not Go Nigeria

Do not go Nigeria

Do not break

Stay, lets restart again

Away from the point

Where we ditched our foot

And I restructure your face

To the beauty you once were

Stay Nigeria

Do not go

Stay with love

Let that love appease the dead

Whose innocent spirit

Wail endlessly

For vengeance 

Stay as entity

Not majorities

Not minorities

We all are majors

And together 

We shall rebuild again

Stay Nigeria, stay

And write unity 

In your name

Stay to defend your peace

Stay with clear conscience

I love your cynosures of ridges

Cresending Jos plateau 

I love the aquatic sprawl of Lagos

Stay, Nigeria stay

I cannot pay visa

To visit Onitsha!
