The Unfathomable Truth
"Idenye ga-agbako ebe o na-agbako," means ‘rain water will always follow its natural paths and gather into ponds as it always has and always will’.
An ancestor identified with the paths of rain waters, a colonizer identified as an irrigator is one whose impact is, to say the least, life-giving, at one with mother nature and eternal.
The full and undeniable meaning of this Igbo proverb which defines the title of the ancestor is this – that no matter how long it takes, no matter how crooked or multifarious the winding paths that truth may take, it will ultimately get to its final destination; at the end of its journey (in the fullness of time) it will come together into one whole".
