This Boulevard made me Laugh and cry.....well not really cry sha,I just sniffed!
The following day we completed our registration but we couldn't get a khaki, because of non-availability.we were about 100 that fell in that category.for 3 days we didn't participate in any camp activities. I had many admirers in camp( 4 female corpers and a poliwoman) asked me out,( I have always experienced such since I was a kid)corpers in my platoon and my hostel mates do call me a BEAUTIFUL corper.
I turned down all advances, because of my allegiance with my ex-Girlfriend(who later left me for another man after 7years of being together), after 21 days I was posted to OJOTO(idemili south LG) together with 7 other corpers.i was assigned JSS3(Mathematics) SS1-3(Physics)in Girls' secondary school, Ojoto.problem started when the principal and teachers started monitoring all male corpers about 6 of us, especially ME(if u talk to them na wahala, they'll tink u were toasting them)because they will later ask does student what u discussed with them.
IYA BUCHI( buchi's mum)that was the name I gave to their PRINCIPAL is a very difficult woman to please, she can Nag til tomorrow. Though her Son buchi is a very nice guy( he taught basic tech in that school before he later went for his Service in Osun state), I met one SS3 girl that who was my student, I fell in love with that from the very first day I saw her, she is a combinations of beauty and brain.despite the fact thathave travelled far and wide and I have met with different girls from different Tribe, I can't just explain what got me attracted to her. With all sense of humility I have dated girls from 11 different tribes(43 girls in all) form 1999-till date.
I got close to the girl, I started teaching her and her friends MATHS after school hours, we were very close that people including my colleagues thought we were dating.few weeks after news started going round the school that I toasted the girl, the girl told everyone that, (of which I didnt) thanks to my colleagues that stood by me then, Iya buchi and the teachers shown me he'll. I started avoiding the girl, because of the incident I stopped taking their class(not minding thier WAEC is fast approaching)but the girl won't let me be she will be blocking my way anytime we met even in the mist of her colleagues that she will only allow me to pass if I reply her greetings. Corper Ola and lookman my very good friends and colleagues adviced me to reply her greetings anytime she greets me.
Many of her classmates about 9 of them came to met me individually telling me that what did I see in the girl,that they didn't have, they promised to take care of me sexually and emotionally.I turned them down.she later came to apologise and I forgave her.iya buchi gave me a lot of problem she even told me to stay back during the long holiday to teach the students preparing for their JSCE and SSCE respectively,na so I carry my bag and run.she threaten to deal with me if the students failed there exams.
I stopped getting angry with the principal when I learnt she lost her husband and her first Son on the same day( I pitied her ooo, na the reason why she dey behave strange be that)myself and the girl in question got very close because of her WAEC exams( they needed help for their Maths and physics), on their VS day, ukamaka( dat very beautiful close student of mine, though she was d girl junior of 2yrs)told me to ask the girl out that she is convinced that she is madly in love with me, she said SIR, go for that girl, make use of the opportunity that you have today.
I did has she said, expectedly she said YES, as a yoruba boy wey I be now.few weeks later we passed out I got a lot of gifts from my students, teachers and Iya buchi. Iya buchi gave me a plaque for 95% success recorded in the JSCE and SSCE exams.i forgot to add that I was the PRO of my LG, and the PRO of my CDS group NAPTIP and also president MCAN in my LG.
We are stil together even after 4 years, she now study at FUTO(200 level), I live and work in Ibadan. I miss ojoto, I miss Iya buchi, I miss ukamaka, I miss my colleagues and the villagers......that same year I lost my elder sister, my brother in law to the cold hands of death and My GF of 7years left me for another man.
Forgive me if you found this very boring. Am not good at story telling.
*HA...what a sad sad story!
