History lesson

It was the first day of the session and a new direct entry student, Mensah, a Ghanaian, joined the class in one of Nigeria’s universities.

The Lecturer said, “let’s begin by reviewing some Nigerian history.” The Lecturer asked who said, “I shall return to die in the land of my fathers?” She saw a sea of blank faces, except for Mensah, who had his hand up. Mensah replied:

“King Jaja of Opobo, 1875”

“very good!” said lecturer.

Then she asked again, who

said, “The land use act will

feed the nation?” Again, no

response except from Mensah: “Obasanjo, 1976.”

The Lecturer snapped at the

class; “class, you should be

ashamed. Mensah, who is

new to our Country, knows

more about our history than

you do.”

The Lecturer heard a loud whisper: “Ghana must

go” “who said that?” she

demanded, Mensah put his

hand up, “Buhari 1984.”

At that point, a student at

the back scornfully said;

“Hmmm, you think you are

smart?” The Lecturer glared

and asked; “All right! Now,

who said that?” Again, Mensah said, “Babangida to

Abiola, 1992.”

Now furious, another

student yelled; “Oh yeah! Eat

this!” Mensah jumped out of

his chair waving his hand and

shouting to the Lecturer,

“Indian mistress giving an apple to Abacha, 1998”

Now, with almost mob

hyseria, someone said; “You

little shit. If you say anything else, I’ll kill you.” Mensah frantically yelled at the top of his voice; “Chris Uba to Ngige, 2004!”

The Lecturer fainted, and as

the class gathered around

her on the floor, someone

said; “Oh shit, we’re in Big

trouble now!” Mensah whispered; “Chimaroke Nnamani, Ayodele Fayose

and Lucky Igbinedon 2007”

Someone angrily said; “Dont

answer him, he is a fool”

Mensah smiled replied;

“Obansanjo to IBB, 2011” Now the Lecturer manage to get up and asks Mensah; pls, who’re you? Show your self..

Mensah jumped, yelled and

said; Jonathan to BOKO HARAM 2012
