THE JOURNEY SO FAR

What have you heard? What have you been told? What is the myth you hold about the Ibadan Medical School? Having tasted some of its waters, should I tell you a little about it?  The end of the 100level second-semester exams saw most of us moving from one orientation to another.

DO VISIT AGAIN SOON

Since the electoral ban on the University of Ibadan Medical Students’ Association (UIMSA) was lifted, we have been besieged by various graphics, videos and of course requests to be addressed by the current crop of aspirants.

During the last tenure, my class received only one courtesy visit and the rest…

This is because the elections are meant to come before freshmen are registered and before the final year students have their final exams. The 2017/2018 tenure started many weeks after the 2k21 class resumed; the 2k21 class didn’t vote,…

THE VOTER’S MANUAL YOU NEVER HAD

I had waited, thinking that the match was for March, but I was wrong. I guess the ban was too heavy to be lifted then. Na so I muzz. I awoke from my slumber when I got news that the ban was lifted, and that this year was destined for ‘breaking the bias’. And since that night, I have seen flyers flying in flying colours, and I now agree that there are many banners over us. I know I am…
