Thanks for your attempts at improving your Igbo language skills. Probably, I should take you on in the translation thread. This particular thread just likeI said earlier is for Igbo bu Igbo. Meaning an attempt to draw out NdiIgbo well versed in Igbo language.  If there is anything you do not understand here, do not hesistate to let me know in the translation thread.
