A Lesson for You!

I vividly remember one of the things I did in my secondary school.
.
When I was in secondary school,there was this thing I did, I didn’t do it alone though, I had a partner then. Grace was the partner. Lol
.
It’s about my first mathematics teacher in secondary school, Mr. Ade. The man is very strict no be seresere, he can flog sumbori for Africa.
.
In spite of his wickedness, I still like him, I think he was just trying to breed us. It’s very painful I can’t even find him on Facebook.
.
If you fail to do his classwork, you’d better start bagging cloths to place on your buttocks very well. He doesn’t believe in “It is wrong to lash a lady’s buttocks”. Kilo nje be? That’s his area of concentration.
.
If you fail to do his assignment, do make sure you’ve eaten before he unleash his anger on you because, you won’t be able to eat in the next 24hours.
.
If you fail his test, you’d better not come to school.

.
Whenever we were given assignment and we were unable to solve it, we would turn to the back of the mathematics textbook to check the answers.
.
This man loves it when you can prove your answers with solutions, you can’t just give him your final answers without solutions. He is always interested in how you got the answer.
.
There are times we couldn’t solve some questions and as the class captain and assistant class captain, we didn’t want to disappoint the class.
.
Whenever the mathematics teacher faced the board and started writing, we would flip through his lesson note and glance through it. Immediately he turns back, we would close it.
.
We got those questions correctly and the man was proud of us, even our classmates envied us. They didn’t know it was a derivative work.
.
It continued like that till it was time for the final exam, Mathematics to be precise.
.
Amazing enough, some of the questions we copied came out. Immediately I saw it, I looked up to check my partner and our eyes met in contact.
.
It was not funny at all because, we performed woefully. We only copied it for the sake of our assignments, we didn’t understand the question itself.
.
We wanted to please the teacher and looked like a mathematician before our classmate.
.
We did our best, but we couldn’t reach his taste. He, Mr. Ade, was surprised we didn’t get those questions we got in our assignments.
.
His expectations were far beyond what he saw. We got those assignments and failed the exam. How do we explain that biko?
.
Since then, I’ve learnt to be straight, forward and sincere.
It’s not a shame if you don’t know anything, no one has a monopoly of knowledge.
.
Just because you don’t want them to make jest of you, you then closed your mouth. Have you forgotten that a closed mouth is a closed destiny?
.
You don’t have an in depth knowledge about somethings and keep on doing “formation” up and down.
.
Be plain!
Be real!
Be submissive!
Let people know who you are, don’t forge your achievements.
You’d better reveal your identity and disappoint them now before they discover you are pseudo-personality and disgrace you.
