"Teacher Takon
Happy Anniversary.
I know you are in a good place because you were a good man.
Remember at one get together in London when the host asked us all if we played any musical instruments and Pius said he played the Grammar phone. These are what memories are made off.
RIP Amba St. Leger UK"

A man of unending generosity and solid moral judgement.Tita we salute you. Epue X"

"Justice Ndoma-Egba (my kins man) told me something remarkable the very last time I met with him in his country home in the precincts of the Holy Family Hospital, Ikom. He said Nchor, "In every venture in life, you must pay for your ignorance." He then told me a story of how he was riped off by a technician servicing his lister plant."

"My Lord, Hon. Justice Emmanuel Takon Ndoma-Egba was a fore-runner to all Lawyers from the Central and Northern Senatorial Districts of Cross River State; he showed us the way. My mentor and benefactor, Kanu Godwin Agabi,SAN refers to him as 'our leader.'

My Lord, 'E.T', Rest in Peace."
