15 Things You Absolutely Do Not Need To Remember About Medilag

January 29, 2020

So, you finished from Medilag? and life has been good to you, so you now have selective amnesia from your time there? Alright, I am here to remind you about all the many evils God delivered you from.

Come along as I remind you:

1) Bed bugs:

If I don’t start this list with the honourable owners of the school, have I even started? Chief executive terrorists. This menace forced many people to go for overnight. No matter how many times we fumigated, they just never died.

2) Collabo rice:

Let’s just thank God the dog days are over because see ehn.

3) Overnight – sleep:

How many times did you follow your roommate to class only to end up battling with sleep? show of hands if this sounds like you. Sleep is usually sweetest on the night of the incourse you didn’t read for.

4) Water scarcity:

God bless Gtbank, Kb tank, and mosque for not putting us to shame that year in medilag.

5) Ceedars:

If you know this name and you bought something from the kiosk, when will you marry?

6) Compssabration:

The absolute greatest thing to ever happen in the history of the school. We need another edition because this adulting is too much.

7) The generator is bad:

These words along with no fuel in the generator had enough power to ruin your week – how will we cook beans pls?

8) Getting your age in your first incourse:

The single most humbling moment in all of your academic life. Going up to the board and seeing 17,18,19. Over 100. Oluwa, can we have a discussion?

9) Mama Dee’s indomie:

Pepper roulette. It either had too much pepper or none at all. Nevertheless, it got the job done.

10) Cold room:

The most appropriate name is hot room. Riddle me this – where does reading stop and parole start inside cold room?

11) “Scaries”:

If you know, you know. Saving lives since 1980.

12) Hostel movement:

No human being should ever have to endure this. Somebody save me, I am in the ghetto.

13) Vuvuzela wars:

If final year students have not made midnight noise with whistles and vuvuzelas, did they really entire final year? I am sure some of the curses are still following the participants.

14) Compssa week:

The one week where enjoyment was a given throughout the whole year.
