“This is Akeju, the guy you failed for consecutive 5 years : Many lessons to learn here
A friend who couldn't graduate with his colleagues in LAUTECH because
of 100L Biology Practical wrote this and I hope it will teach us a
How I Made A Perfect Payback For Lecturer Who Failed Me For 6 Years In The University
My first day in the biology laboratory was a dreadful
one. During a briefing session a day before we were to have practical
during my 100level, We had been told that it is a customary to always
put on the ‘laboratory coat’ each and every time
we have practicals, hence whosoever without the laboratory coat will be
I’d no money as at that time to buy laboratory coat, and
the first practical came just too soon. I couldn’t borrow as my only
friend in the school then was Asiwaju Olalekan Godson Ayodeji.
Anyway, I knew breaking the rule of not putting a
‘laboratory coat’ was a bad idea but I was young and wrong to take that
risk. I had no choice than to enter into the laboratory room to get
engaged with my fellow departmental mates.
Not quite long after I entered the lab, one of the
biology lecturer who handled biology practical came around. He spotted
few of us without the ‘laboratory coat’ and decided to play a fast track
on us, he wanted to get hold of us. I was fortunate
to be sitting near the entrance door, so I got away.
He was able to lay hands on few guys unaware but
everyone of us that escaped went into his black book. He called our
class rep then, and collected our matric numbers. Printed them and
pasted them in his office. It was printed boldly.
That was how myself and other guys that ran away failed Both the practical and the actual Biology course that year.
Personally, I sat for the same courses for good 6years;
making it 6 different times entirely. On my third year of rewriting, I
summoned courage to visit him in his office. I went to see him to plead
with him, he didn’t know me, he only knew
of my matric number.
So I’d to take the bull by the horn to explain what had
happened. He laughed wickedly and angrily sent me away, I returned the
He told me, if I return again then it would be very bad
and I won’t like it. I left him for a week. I consulted my advisor, Dr.
Mrs Adigun. I explained everything to her…
She told me, I should give him time, and to return to
him after sometime. That he may consider my ‘show of repentance’. So I
didn’t return for like a month.
Then one day, I was returning from a friend’s place
Osisami Babalola Enitan on Friday after I had gone to play chess, I saw
him also returning from the mosque. We both met along the school former
fine-art department, just by the way that leads
to Alata eatery, Under G.
I quickly used the opportunity of meeting him just coming from the mosque to plead yet again. He treated me like ‘poo’
He still went on to fail me even in my 400level. On my
final year, I went to him, then I was married. I took my pregnant wife
to plead with him. He walked us out and told us never to come again. He
promised to report to the school security.
So we left.
He failed me for 5 years consecutively. It was hard for
me. I wept for days. I told my parents, and few friends.. It prevented
me from going for NYSC with my class 13′ set.
Then I turned to God. Yes, I was guilty and I deserved
punishment but that was too much. I prayed ‘no be small’. So many
different phases of life, most times it is always our fault that we find
ourselves in difficult situations but immediately
we get to seek God for help, he surely always provide us a solution to
all of our problems. I seek God’s face and he never fails.
That biology course was taken away from him and was given to someone else, it was given to another Dr. I can never forget him.
I registered as a spill-over student, and sat for it, I
borrowed 4 other courses to boost my CGPA, I collected my result and my
biology 101, 102,104 and 106 were all A(s).
That was how I got cleared.
Moving forward, During my service year, after I
redeployed from Abia state to Oyo, I was posted to the West Africa
examination council. (Waec) Ijokodo, Ibadan.
Great place with wonderful people. On my great work
ethics, being dutiful and so diligent during my service year, I was
given the green card and permitted at all time to work during their
examination and marking exercise each and every time
I so wish. Oluwafemi Martins my great boss, one of the great people I
had worked with.
Coincidentally, I was officially sent to Ogbomoso
marking venue as an assistant subject examination officer to partner my
I was handling Biology and chemistry subjects. For the
ones who don’t understand the whole drama during the Waec marking
We give out the examination scripts to qualified
teachers or graduates with the certification in their specified subjects
for marking and recording during a stipulated period of 21/23
So that day in April, there was a long queue of
Examiners waiting to submit their CV. Then this Dr. lecturer that failed
me for 5years was on the queue too, I’d spotted him.
My wonderful Waec daddy was beside me, he asked while I
was smiling, I simply told him that something funny will soon happen,
and when it was this Dr’s turn, He greeted and called me “sir” (bending
his head). I quickly stood up to greet him
But I was so surprised, he didn’t recognize my face.
Apparently, he would never have thought and believe and to be possible
for the young man in front of him to be me.
So I pretended as if I had nothing in mind too, I was
going through his CV when he started pleading that he really needed my
help concerning this marking stuff, he told me he came along with his
daughter who is a gate crasher ( these are people
who are new to the marking system) and his wife who also had marked for
a long time but needed to mark too.
He told me Ladoke Akintola university of technology had
been on strike for over a year and nothing seemed fine, no salary. No
money and nothing at all. I should help him.
At that point I told him to call his wife and daughter.
He did. I then asked him; “Sir, Is it truly that you do not recognize my
He said, “ehn! It’s like this face is familiar o but you
know there are many people like that I can’t remember. I can’t really
remember where and when I had seen your face”. I told him to try, that I
will only help him if he can remember w
we had met and when..
He didn’t remember so I helped him out with my surname, I
told him. “This is Akeju, the guy you failed for consecutive 5 years.
The guy that brought his pregnant wife to beg you but still, you sent us
At that point, he was dumbfounded. He left without
saying a word. His wife and daughter were confused and everyone on the
queue too. His wife asked what the matter was, I told her to go and ask
Shortly, His wife and daughter returned. He had
explained everything, they knelt down and asked for forgiveness. I
smiled and asked them to tell him to come back. He had gone home. In the
evening he did returned.
He asked for forgiveness, and I did forgave him. More
than he had asked for, I granted him all of his requests. We were not
permitted to give more than a packet packed of scripts but I gave him
more than one. Just for him to make more money.
He wept uncontrollably.
Matthew 5:44 “But I say unto you, Love your enemies,
bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for
them which despitefully use you, and persecute you”. I only know of the
way of doing good even unto them that do me evil.
Till I left ogbomoso, he was always calling because I
had put enough food on his table and not only him, but also for his
family during that difficult period they were going through. It’s left
to him, if he will change or not. Our tomorrow isn’t

THE General Superintendent of Deeper Life Bible Church, Pastor William Kumuyi, Saturday, maintained that the church will not be handed over to ‘rascals’ who are not portraying the image of Christ in their character.
Kumuyi made the declaration via a satellite broadcast from headquarters of the church in Lagos, while teaching on the topic, ‘Fear Not: The Promise Is Still Good’ during the Faith Clinic session at the ongoing Deeper Life National December Retreat, holding at the Deeper Life Conference Centre (DLCC), which started on Friday, December 21 and ends December 25.
He said the church will not condone any form of rascality and rebellion because the word of God never encourages that and is a strange behaviour capable of taking one to hell fire.
He said: “We are not going to hand the church over to rascals, over to rebellious people that want to scatter everything that is good that the Lord is doing. If you …
