Another lovely statue has been erected in front of the popular Assumpta Cathedral in Owerri, Imo state. This is a great work of art no doubt but personally, I think the catholic cathedral was a beautiful landmark by itself without the added extras in recent years.
I remember with nostalgia fond memories as a child when we used to commute from Lagos to Owerri by road. Seeing the magnificent beauty of the cathedral spring up as we approached was gladdening . First you could spot the dome from a far distance and the closer you got to the heart of the city , the view of the sprawling architecture housing the cathedral was breathtaking. It was just a beautiful feeling. Change is constant they say but this one no follow. If you didn’t grow up in Owerri, you probably won’t have any idea what I’m talking about. You just won’t get it.
