The history of Nigeria as told by an outsider
It was the first day of the session and a new direct entry student, Mensah, a
Ghanaian, joined the class in one of the universities in Nigeria.
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 in Nigeria knows more about the history of Nigeria 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 hysteria, 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 managed to get up and asks Mensah; pls, who’re you? Show yourself…
Mensah jumped, yelled and said; Jonathan to BOKO HARAM 2012.
Class Captain shouted; “We are locking you up”.
Mensah gently replied… Buhari to looters 2015…lol Happy Democracy Day!!!
