  • Pa Gidi Expressions: It’s December Again [Deux]


    It’s December again, and I decide to

    Take a walk out of my room in search

    Of food.

    It isn’t something that happens every time,

    But I’m reminded of my law school days

    When I had to take some long lonely walks

    Whenever I find myself all alone in the room.

    The Lagos campus has been mostly famous

    For being situate in the economic centre of

    West Africa. Victoria Island.

    If you’ve heard of anyone talk about the

    Island, then you’ll know that it isn’t a place

    That’s meant for everyone.

    Better said, it’s mostly ‘reserved’ for some

    Settled few within the society.

    With streets/roads like Alfred Rewane,

    Adeola Odeku, Adeyemo Alakija, Adeola Hopewell,

    And the ever buzzling Muri Okunola Park, you’ll

    Know for sure that aside lands and buildings,

    The Island is mostly famous for one thing.

    Food!

    The campus was on festive break, and for

    Better reasons I couldn’t easily explain, I

    Decided to stay back in the campus hostel

    For the holidays.

    Fifteen thousand naira. That’s what I had to

    Pay for accommodation during the course of

    The two weeks break.

    The school’s food court (known for it’s

    Relatively low-priced food when compared

    With restaurants in the environs) was equally

    On break, and I had to resort to Kilimanjaro

    For my lunch or dinner.

    Due to the long walks and distance, the day

    Time was spent with myself, and on few

    Evenings, I would take a walk through Adeola

    Hopewell in search of any Noodles selling mallam

    So as not to die of hunger.

    Aside the fact that I can’t cook, cooking in the

    Campus was prohibited by the management;

    Thus, everyone had to always buy food, or order

    For one. You well know the difference in both.

    Leaving Lagos as a whole for the capital

    Of Eastern Nigeria, it seemed my food

    Life would be quite easier, and perhaps

    Cheaper.

    Well, I thought wrong.

    Not only is food almost the same price here,

    The edibles I could easily point at on the

    Island isn’t available on the menu list, leaving

    Me with the Abacha nonsense and the beans

    Plus roasted plantain mixture.

    More importantly, the Sabbath day seems to

    Be highly revered here, thus stores, hardly open

    On Sundays – especially the neighboring stores.

    Well, it’s December again, and I decide to

    Take a walk out of my room.

    You sure know what I’m looking for.
