          ‘The Golden Rule and The Greatest Good’ what can they do?





            It was around 4 pm that Tosin Olumito and I got to the main campus of Ahmadu Bello University Samaru, Zaria after a long journey from Ilorin, Kwara State. Our mission was to process our admission having finished the Interim Joint Matriculation board Examination of which we obtained a very good result. In Ilorin, we had been directed to a friend who was a student in the school to put us through and to offer us accommodation for timeous processing and efficient follow up of the admission but alas! The school joined the 6 months strike called by ASUU. We knew they were on strike, the news we heard was that admission had started and that they would soon called it off to join some of their colleagues who had called their student to resume without a definite announcement by ASUU, which they eventually did after a week that we got to the university. We tried and searched every nook and cranny of the university to locate the friend we were directed to until somebody nimbled us that the student we were looking for had traveled. All hope shattered, we looked at each other amazingly, we were now left to carry our cross and look for a panacea to this menace. We couldn’t go to a hotel neither do we have relatives within the vicinity. Tosin has a relative in Kaduna, which is 45 minutes drive from Zaria. I alluded that she should go to Kaduna to locate her relatives, that I would find a way of harboring myself. She wanted to disagree having thought of the risk, which I would be exposed to. She insisted on knowing where I would be so that she could check the following day to inform me whether I should come also to Kaduna or not . I told her that I would not be able to afford the transport implication which could adversely affect my pocket money because I was left with a token that could last for few days apart from my fare to Ilorin. She was convinced.

            As luck...
