Pen down for a while.

I honestly planned to draft and publish this article yesterday, but I was so tired and recognized only my bed. As some of you all know; I'm a part-time student at Yabatech. I've initially been so occupied with my exams, all glory to God; yesterday was the day I wrapped up my exams, I'll be dropping my pen for a while and either opt for a direct entry into the university or come back for my HND program.

The journey as a student of Yabatech hasn't been a smooth one but all in all, I'm grateful for the grace to start well and finish well. I'm coming back next year to reseat for my ND 1-second semester exams due to the financial crisis I once wrote about.

Our ND3 first semester's result was passed today, I'm happier to have seen my grade point and cumulative grade point.

I have nothing much to say asides from being grateful to God for his grace and mercies. Three years' journey ended in praise.

The sad news I heard today about the incident of yesterday.

The incident

Yesterday; being my signout day, something quite tragic happened.

In Yabatech, it's a kind of culture for signout students whose course-mates have cars; to go about playing loud music and driving around the school.

Yesterday wasn't any different.

I saw the lady in the above picture; who is my very dear and sweet friend, off to where she boarded the bus, but on coming back I met my other friends; Joyce, Esther, and Victoria, looking downcast and discussing amongst themselves. After a few inquiries from them, I got to know that a final-year student met with an accident and was rushed by other students to the school's medical lab. On getting to the medical lab, we noticed that they had put the boy in their ambulance and were ready to transfer the boy to a better medical center. It was then my friends and I realized it must have been really serious.

We spoke amongst ourselves; feeling pity towards the boy and wishing him a safe recovery.

The sad news.

I was beyond shocked when I came online to read the story of his death, it became more pathetic when I heard that he was an only child.

A final-year student, who studied Electrical engineering died on his signout day.

Due to the post from Instablog, I got to find out about what truly happened.

He was standing in a car; dancing, the car moved, he fell and hit his head on a tree.

He didn't die on the spot, as they had to rush him to Yabatech medical center.

I would have said; he should have celebrated wisely but then after the lecture from one of my good male friends, I realized that being alive Is just by grace. It could have happened to anyone. But then, one should still be careful when one is trying to celebrate a victory or a win.

May his gentle soul rest in perfect peace.

I became more grateful after hearing and reading the news, it is well.

I'm grateful for all I've learned, unlearned, and relearned from my great school; Yabatech. God has always been faithful and I'll always be grateful.

Pen down for a while.

This is my twin and me.

Till we meet again in my next article and yours.

Thanks for reading.

So sad for the boy, for sure he has a lot of plans ahead but it will not be possible anymore, life is unpredictable and no one knows when it ends by God's will.

Jesus Christ! So sad to hear this bad news. Wasn't he informed before the car moved or it moved itself? Sometimes, we human cause it ourselves with our carelessness but in another angle, it may happen to anyone just as you have said but this really pained me. May his soul rest in peace.

Congratulations dear and more success ahead for you.

And this thing happens often times, People driving on high speed, People standing on top of moving cars to celebrate and finally get knocked down... there's no harm celebrating in a controllable way🤷.
