How They Toyed With Her Precious Life: An Account of My Ordeal At OAUTHC Yesterday

It was a pathetic event Yesterday. One of the students in my faculty suddenly collapsed and became unconscious. The school health centre had to refer us to the Accident & Emergency Unit of OAUTHC, Ile-Ife. I joined four other student executives in the ambulance as we sped of.
Barely, few minutes to the Emergency Unit, there was a huge traffic on the road. Incredibly, it was presumably a funeral party hosted by one high political chieftain in the community. Cars blocked the one-lane road on all sides. Even with the whirring of the siren, we spent over 20 minutes before we found a way amidst the heavy traffic. I wondered, how on earth would the hospital roads be blocked because of a party. I marveled. We had no option but to come down from the ambulance to ward the traffic. 
The lady lying helpless in the ambulance was already looking lifeless as the drip passed into her vein was almost getting exhausted. We spent about 30 minutes on a route that shouldn't take more than 7 minu…

How We Read Over 50 books In Six Months

Image
*Toyin Faleke*

 recently shared on my WhatsApp story about how I had read over 50 books just in the first half of 2018 and amidst all of the hailing about how my parents wanted a child and they gave birth to a book instead and how I was the ‘Omowe of Iwe Land’, one significant question was on the lips of everyone, “Babe, how on earth did you do it?”
Quite frankly, there was no jazz; neither was juju involved (trust me). I didn’t need to conjure incantations; neither did it require the head of a tortoise and the speed of a deer. For me, the very first step was being a book lover. I had always been fascinated by anything in prints since I was little. I mean, ANYTHING IN PRINTS; from magazines to newspapers to billboard advertisements, to my father’s Accounting textbooks (although, I still don’t understand all of the Accounting mumbo-jumbo. It confuses me), but yeah, you get the gist already. So, loving books and opening them up came easy.
Call me traditional, but I also was a sucker fo…
