No Easy Harvest By Professor F.S Idachaba
No Easy Harvest By Professor F.S Idachaba
“No Easy Harvest” is a life story of Professor Francis Idachaba covering his humble birth, primary, secondary and tertiary school education in various places and locations. It all covers his work experiences in Nigeria and at the international arena. The book also puts in record Professor Idachaba’s family life, his philanthropic efforts and the honours he received.
The title of the work is adequate going with the level of achievements of Professor Idaachaba: he has had no mean harvest. Though easy to read, the HARVEST did not come easy. The HARVEST came after many years of hard work, discipline, humility, probity, integrity, sincerity of purpose, focus and refusal to be distracted, and above all, the fear of God which his mother, Aya instilled in him.
If, as claimed in the PROLOGUE, this autobiography is a product of empty diaries with few entries, then we give glory to God for the very rich and retentive memory He (God) has endowed the erudite Professor.
There is no doubt that Professor Francis Suleiman Idachaba has achieved much in life. He is distinguished and honourable, indeed. Are there areas in his life that he actually failed? If so, I leave that to other readers to pick as I could not pick such in the autobiography.
Though “No Easy Harvest” is a wonderful book about a great personality, but permit me to note the following; the chronologies of the events were lost between the international engagements and the Vice Chancellors appointments. For example, International engagements II (1996 -2006) presented in Chapter 10 actually predated the pioneer Vice Chancellor Appointment (1988 -1995) in Chapter 12; the national service should have been broken into segments to reflect the presentation of the international engagements; there are few typographical errors and missing paragraphs and gaps in this important and historic book; there is no record of extra-curricular activities. But I know that Professor Idachaba does walking so well. For example, while he was the vice Chancellor at Kogi State University, Anyigba, climbing the 4-storey Senate building was so easy that the younger security staff had to run after him.
