Memunat was born into a middle class home. They were neither rich nor poor..comfortable and got all their needs not want.
She’s the first child of four children. Her Dad is a building contractor who works with a popular company in Nigeria. Her mum, Mrs Kiki is a Christian who’s married to a Muslim but was allowed by her husband to practice her religion. So, all four children–Memunat, Idris, Ridwan and Sadiat were free-religioned(allowed to practice any religion of their choice). The family was a peaceful one..
Kiki owned a mini-supermarket in town and had 2 sales attendants. They made sure they provided for their children’s every need.
“Mummy! Daddy!! I passed! I’ve gained admission at last..My name is on the first list!!” Muna screamed running from her room in excitement to the dinning room where her parents and siblings were witted for dinner.
She handed the phone over to her Dad who scrolled down and checked her admission status on the school portal which wrote “ADMITTED” Course of study’s political science.
“Congratulations Muna..at last” Mr. Jamiu said handing the phone back to her.
“Thank you daddy” She beamed excitedly
“Congrats my love” Kiki said smiling
“Muna congrats” Her siblings chorused
Indeed she was happy. She had taken JAMB 3 good times and in all, she made good grades but was denied admission due to the wrecked educational system of our country. And because of that, her younger brother Idris got admission before her and was now in FUT-Minna studying Architecture.
Muna couldn’t eat because of too much excitement. She was too happy and began to envision her life as a campus babe. She couldn’t wait to leave for school..The next day, her dad gave her money to pay for acceptance fee and school fees which was all online while waiting for the official date of school resumption.
Her Mum made sure to buy everything needed for her school ranging from provisions to foodstuffs to wears, books and all you can think of.
Soon, school resumed and an uber was chartered for her to convey her and her numerous stuffs to school. She arrived Campus as a big girl..She checked into her hostel which she had already paid for online.
She was in one of the biggest hostels with just three people per room.
She got into the room and met 3 girls seated on one of the beds there gisting and eating.
They noticed her presence.
“Welcome” the fair slim girl said
“goodevening” she replied sitting down on an empty bed
“Uhmm..I guess you’re new here?” The fair girl said
“Yes. Am a fresher..Political science department” Muna said naively
“OK..you’re welcome..Am Mirabel, Mimi for short..this is Juliann and this is Chisom. This is my corner and that’s Chi’s corner..Juli is in Adam&Eve hostel but we all in the same department” Mimi Introduced.
“I’m Memunat..Muna for short” Muna said smiling at them.
They helped her bring in her stuffs and settle down. She discovered Mimi is in the same department with her and same level too. Juli is in Economics Dept while Chisom was a year above all of them and in Biochem.
She settled in immediately and started gisting with them.
They planned to start their registration the next day as Chisom who already knew every nook and cranny of the school directed them because she was in 200level already.
The next day, Muna woke up early and woke her roommate and newfound friend Mimi. They bathed and dressed up for their registration while Chisom was still on bed. She said she had a 9am class.
“Remember what I told you girls o..go to students affairs block first to get your green and pink files..fill it and you’ll see the necessary places to submit them” Chisom said
“We here o madam” Mimi replied
They bade her farewell and went off. They got to the Student affairs block after much Directions and met a huge crowd of fresher’s struggling to get a number as a ticket to get into the building and get their files..The security men were controlling the crowd of students.
“Omo if you touch me, I go wound you!” A security man screamed at a boy who was struggling to get inside.
Muna and Mimi were already frustrated.. How could they get past these whole crowd?
Suddenly, Mimi whispered to Muna..”babe stay here, I’ll be right back”
Before Muna could ask questions, Mimi had disappeared into the crowd forcefully making her way. In less than 10minutes, she was back with two tickets..”No. 5″ and “No. 6″. She handed No. 6 to Muna who looked at her surprisingly
” Mimi how did you?..”
“Shhhhhhh..there’s always a way” Mimi winked at her..
