Letter to my future husband by Students Union V.P.

Letter to my future husband
By Anifowoshe Titilope Legal Eagle
I am writing you this note not only to express how I feel about you but to also inform you about the things I will cherish in you. I hope this piece meets you in good health and peace of mind.
I really don’t know if you will be a Nigerian, come from any part of Africa, Europe, Asia, America or in any part of the world, I do not know when, where and how we are going to meet but I hope we meet on a sunday simply because the angels are always around on a day like that and the real reason why I need the angel is to help explain to you on my behalf how I feel about you maybe you will fully understand the angels when they tell you how I feel.
Let me start by introducing myself to you. I was born a decade and nine years ago in the continent of Africa, in a “craze world” called Nigeria. I am the Liberal Legal Eagle . I am at present trying to survive the better by stress of better by Far University of Ilorin. Like I said earlier, I don’t know if you will be a Nigerian but if in anyway you end being a Nigerian, I don’t care if you are hausa, yoruba, igbo, ibibio, efik, uhrobo, ibira or any other tribe even the religion you practise does not matter to me as long as you live in peace with your neighbours and other members of your community.
Presently, I am not enjoying my existence in this craze world (Nigeria) where there is no future hope for the upcoming generation, where majority of the youths are living in despair and have no option than to engage in internet scam(yahoo boys), look up to Europe, America and even far Asia. A craze world where the big thieves (Authority rogues and robbers) get a less jail term for stealing big while if the small thieves (internet fraudsters) are caught, they are used as scapegoats by the EFCC and are sentenced to a long years imprisonment. A craze world, where the mass of its populace live in a state of destitute while its political and religious leaders buy private jets and live in a luxury home with the mass of the population resources even when 65% of the citizen are homeless as estimated by the UNDP while 71% of them live below $1 per day. Unfortunately, I am among this disadvantaged class in that craze world who lives in a densely populated area (ghetto), in a face-to-face apartment, where over ten people live in a single room, where close to forty to fifty people, if am not exaggerating share a single toilet and bathroom. Worst still, we even queue for one another to take our bath or use the toilet. If in anyway, you are among these disadvantaged class in that craze world, I don’t care as long as you are preparing to move out of that “unbearable suffering”. Well, if maybe you are presently among the privileged class who feed with above $3 dollar per day, lives in comfort and drives a luxury car. Then, I will say lucky you.
I really dont need sex because I get fuck*d everyday by the Nigeria government who have gang raped us its citizen and make life unbearable for us to live. All I want from you is an unending, unconditional and a true love unlike the “artificial love” we get from our leaders who created an atmosphere of poverty in the country and pretended to want to alleviate it by introducing a poverty alleviation programme where commercial motor cycle and tricycle are shared to jobless youths under the disguise of youth empowerment programme. I wonder the kind of youth they want to empower with motorcycle(okada) and tricycle (keke Napep),when in the real sense,these measures are nothing more than the politics of deliberate exclusion of the youth from governance.
There is nothing sweeter in this craze world I live than the hope of getting married to you someday. Your astonishing handsome look does not really matter to me because it will fade away. All that matters to me is your ability to face a challenge even when all hope seems lost, your good sense of humour is yet again another thing that will attract you to me and make me stay glued with you forever and I hope you are friendly and care about the needy.
Every hour, Every time, everyday and every moment I think about you, I get the biggest smile on my face hoping that one day, you will finally be mine. I need you to need me like I need you. I know it might sound funny but I secretly hope you are reading this and one day you will be the father my unborn child(ren). I don’t want to change anything about you, you are amazing just the way you are except your last name. I’m imagining that day, the day I will finally rest on your shoulders and will finally say you are mine. It always gives me great joy in my heart when I think about the day we will meet.
There are days I miss you even though we haven’t met yet and there are days I don’t. Either way, I remember you everyday. You are always in my thoughts, meeting you is going to be the best part of my life. I can’t wait to see you. Till we meet, take good care of your body, soul and mind for me. My regards to your parents, if in anyway they are both still alive.
Forever yours
Your Future Wife,
Legal Eagle

Tips for a successful Examination for Unilorin Remedial students

UnilorinGist hereby welcomes all prospective students of University of Ilorin currently preparing and writing their Examinations for the 2013/2014 session into the University Campus Premises, Unilorin Permanent site.
It is our pleasure to have you around and we wish you success in your exams. However, we will like to share with you some tips which we believe will be of great help to you during your short stay on the premises. It is your own best interest to read them and follow them.
Tips for a successful Examination for Remedial students
1.       Read, Review and Revise. Proper preparation reduces the risk of failure. There is never too much reading for you do not know where the questions will come from.
·         Read your notes and jottings over and over again
·         Solve past questions
·         Join revising groups
·         Attend Final tutorials organized by various organizations, fellowships and groups.
o   All these will keep you updated will likely questions to come up during the Remedial Examination.
2.       Abide strictly by the Rules and regulations given to you. University of Ilorin is a school built on Ethics and Character. You are expected to abide therein as you would if you are already a student. Probitas doctrina says it all.
·         Do not make noise while on the premises as you would be disturbing the peace of other student. Make the environment conducive for learning, studying and examination. Do not play loud music> use your earpiece. Do not make loud jests among your friends, you are here for exams; focus on that.
·         Do not fight with anyone. Report any issue to the security officers around. If person slap you, abeg no slap am back oo, na both of you dey go home be that. Just jejely go report am to oga security. Unilorin is a peaceful school, behave yourselves maturely.
·         Indecent dressing/nudity will not be allowed. In your own interest, do not wear anything short of your knee length as a female; no outrageous hairstyles for males. No transparent clothings, no tight dressings. Be careful, we no dey allow nonsense dressing for our school oo. I no know no dey o. If dem catch you, na first class embarrassment you want get be that.
·         Put on your Remedial Student Identity cards always. This is one of the most common rule broken by students. Don’t be made a scapegoat- You are not DBanj.
·         The rest shall be given to you before you write papers. If you are told not to bring in anything into the examination hall, please abide strictly, if you are caught cheating….. #Thatsall.
3.       Keep our Compound neat as you met it. Do not litter the grounds, use the toilet properly. There is water in most of the toilet, do not forget to flush. Do not tamper with the flowers. Take the appropriate routes. In your own best interest, do not play with dangerous items. The hostel facility made available to you should be treated as your own room at home. I’m sure you are neat student s at home; prove that to us here at Unilorin.
4.       Keep your properties SAFE. It is your duty as a student to make sure you keep your properties safe. Lock your locker when going out. Keep your bag where you can monitor it. Do not give our stuffs to strangers you don’t know. Your phone should be with you or with your friend if you are going into the exam hall, not in your bag or under some leaves. Better still; lock it up in your locker. Be smart; report any suspicious movement by anybody to the Security men around. Do not give Chances to wicked beings.
5.       Make friends:  You do not know who might be of help to you in the future. Smile, be cautious, share your food, your money, past questions, knowledge etc. Do not be stingy. Please be careful though of the associations you join. Do not join bad gangs. Joining one is tantamount to forfeiting your candidacy.
6.       And best of all; Be Prayerful: Prayer is the master key. It’s Ramadan season, make use of the various prayer grounds around the hostel (there is one between the Male hostel and Dept of Home Economics) also there is one beside the SLT. There are praying arenas too for the Christians. You can either pray with your friends in a gathering or attend Unilorin Christian Union UCU (Chapel of the Light) or Catholic (STAC) near the roundabout in front of the Senate building. God is the giver of Success. Commit your ways into His hands and you shall definitely come out in flying colors.
You are Blessed.
Unilorin Gist.
