My Farewell

Image
By 'Joba Ojelabi


No, I am not committing suicide! As a matter of fact, I doubt that I would ever find the guts or folly (whichever is applicable) required to perform the appalling act of ending my human life. These words, as concise as I would try to make them, are a marker of my exit from a world I came into five years ago under unusual circumstances.

I have always wanted to be many things at different stages of my life: Doctor, Engineer, Pilot, and even once also sometime in my juvenile years; typist. Of course, like the typical African parents, my father was quick to delete the thought from my mind, and my mother did not waste any time in praying against the devils at work. But in all my adventurous desires, I do not recall “Journalist” ever coming up at any stage.  Hence my admittance; that like some other things in my life, why I decided to write that article on Admission Racketeering five years ago in applying for an OAU Peeps Membership slot I might never understand.
Howeve…
