Mary started her story with tears in our eyes, she said;
I finished my secondary school in August 2014 from one of the best schools in Lagos State I had very good results so I wrote jamb examination to proceed into the university to pursue a course in the faculty of education due to my interest in teaching.
I wrote jamb and I scored 233 marks out of a total of 400 marks. The general cut off points for universities then was 180, so I made it past the cutoff, I decided to wait a year more to write another jamb examination and get a good score compared to the present one to get a good course to study in the university.
This was the first mistake of my life because a series of things transpired within the period of one year I decided to wait.
I applied for PUTME at the University of Ilorin to study human relations education and luckily for me I was admitted and was told to start registration immediately.
It was on a faithful Wednesday in October when I was traveling to Ilorin to start my registration on campus to ease the stress and the is of taking risk because all payments are done online.
I took a bus very early in the morning at about 6:45 a.m. at Lagos Park to beat traffic and to get to Ilorin earlier. In the bus, I boarded I was seated next to this young dark Guy going to Ilorin also but for a different reason. Suddenly this guy approached me shortly into the journey that he likes and would love us to be friends and even best of friend if I don’t mind.
At first, I ignored but he continued and said a lot again and again until I was forced to talk to him I told him I was not interested that I just got admission into the University and I’m not ready to jeopardize the fact.
He talked and said a lot until it all became jokes and we both smiled and then we became friends and shared contacts when we got to Ilorin he went his way and I took a cab to unilorin main campus gate immediately since it’s already running late.
I called my friend Justina who also studies in unilorin to stay with her till I finish my registration so she sent the description to her place because she stays off campus I go to her place and we were very happy to see one another.
She entertained me with foods and drinks so we joked just and so until we both slept off.
