Ibadan Girls Will Call It “Fargin”

Image
By ‘Joba Ojelabi

In any historical documentation, one major highlight of the social media, especially in Nigeria, must certainly be memes. The art of fusing a picture with witty words in such a fashion that makes it difficult to not smile at its sight has become so sacred that it now forms a major highlight of social media communication. However comparatively, the art does not come with a lot of financial remunerative benefits yet. Hopefully, it would soon enough, who knows? Maybe Odunlade Adekola might finally make that list of the top richest artists in the country. However, apart from the Yoruba actor, another class of people that often suffer the wrath of these memes are the Ibadan people. Due to the peculiarity of their pronunciations of English words, which is of course often an aftermath of some adaptations of the elements of the local dialect. Some of such instances include the pronunciation of the “sh”, “z” and similar sounds as “s” and “v” as “f”.

The Vice-Chancellor who affirmed that the CDL is not under any threat whatsoever as it has been doing well financially, appealed to the staff to moderate their agitations for the payment of some allowances paid on the main campus, noting that the Board of the CDL will look into their request to see what can be legitimately accommodated, without being rail-roaded.

Beyond Ife is a career training and entrepreneur seminar. A sessional programme that comes up every second semester with the sole aim of preparing students for marketplace excellence. 


Unemployment and underemployment are two big issues today in Nigeria. Unemployment is currently on the rise at 14.2% and underemployment at 21%. Underlining this reality is the poor quality of graduates, the country produce year on year rendering them unemployable. In other words, Nigeria graduates lack certain requisite skills needed for sustainable employment.
