14 Struggles That People Who Didn’t Attend Medilag Won’t Understand

July 3, 2020

Luth is/was a bubble. A slice of a slice of the world tucked away. If you went to Luth or you currently school there, chances are that you’ll relate to one or more of these.

1) River Luth.

Let’s start by giving honor to whom honor is due. We shall not speak too much on this because God no go shame us outside.

2) Kissing with both eyes very very wide open because of security men.

If you know, you know.

3) Hustling food on Sundays.

The ghetto. The only other option was foodie rice with no meat. Dog days are over.

4) Celebrating 50 on the dot.

How many times did you have to remind yourself in the exam hall that you were first in primary school? A whole star boy/girl humbled by Luth. The worst part was Akoka people not being able to relate to why 50 was a big deal.

5) Radiography hustle.

If you ever went to see woman in radiography hostel, line up pls.

6) Playing temple run because of OPH rats.

OPH rats will put the fear of God in the heart of a non-believer.

7) Praying at Hall 36.

Especially when your village people followed you to write your incourse. Luth made people believe in a higher power.

8) Going to read overnight because of our landlords.

Where landlord = bed bugs. And read = sleep of course.

9) Hostel runs.

Hustling to submit forms with your guys and also choosing the block that had a running shower.

10) The great migration.

Going from one block to the other to have your bath because of clean toilet – especially on mama Balo’s floor.

11) Pharmacy student and lab reports.

Pharmacognosy. Dispensing. Every time, “I have report to write.” Sorry oh, secretary.

12) Dental students and “I need three patients.”

Class one, class two, class pls let us graduate. Sorry oh, marketer.

13) Medical students and “I have not signed my logbook.”

Every time, “Have you signed?” Pẹlẹ, P.A to the Provost.

14) Only OG’s know Bread man and Ceedars.

When will you marry?

Now that I have your attention, please help broadcast this petition to pay House Officers their arrears.
