I believe you don’t know me. I am Mr Osaro Oseghale, the vice chancellor of this great institution. Here in this institution, we don’t tolerate malpractice of any form. As scholarship students, we are more strict with you. We believe in the best, and we believe you can give it to us. Some of you will make it, others will not. Of the one thousand five hundred of you on the scholarship list, we will only collect two hundred. Which is why you must give your best. For those of you that will make it, see you at the other side. Goodluck. (Leaves with two men and the lady. The other two men unveils the envelope they are holding and brings out answer sheets and question papers. As they start sharing it to the seated students, Bobby walks in. Scene fades as he walk in).

VC OSEGHALE

Good day students.

 

All

Good day sir.

 

VC OSEGHALE

I believe I don’t need an introduction, or do I?

 

All

No sir.

 

VC OSEGHALE

Good. To the business of the day. Congratulations for making it. Last time you saw me, you were more than this. You have proven yourselves to be brains. Being here gives you a responsibility and it is to make SHELL proud that they are not wasting their money on you. As you read on your admission letter, each of you are expected to beat the 2.50 average grade point to keep your scholarship. Anything less than that is goodbye to this institution. So you are here to work. Any one with a question can ask.

 

BOBBY

Sir our accommodation.

 

OTHER STUDENTS EXCEPT TJ

(laugh loudly)

 

 

VC OSEGHALE

you will all be sleeping in this hall. We don’t give acomodation to scholarship students.  (SMILES) Offcourse SHELL is paying big for you guys,  so we made sure of the best accommodation for your comfort.

Five officers are outside waiting to take care of that. They are in charge of our hostel facility. After this address, you will follow them to the hostel provided for you to choose the room that suits you. The rest information you will get in the student handbook that will be given to you on completion of your registration. Your Matriculation ceremony will come up in a week time, with it a welcome party. Lastly, guys, stay away from my daughter. She is on thesame level with you. I don’t joke with her. Welcome to Westpoint University (leaves with his aids)

 

All

(murmurs about the VCs last statement as they leave the hall. Bobby sees Toju and rush to catch up with him).

 

BOBBY

TOJU

840. The name is Toju.

 

BOBBY

(echoes the name) Toju. What tribe is that?

 

TOJU

Itsekiri, Delta State.

 

BOBBY

Deltans, I like your names. Short and simple. I Have a friend Tega. Crazy Warri-boy. He speaks my tribe like he is from River state.

 

TOJU

Am also from Warri.

 

BOBBY

I guessed it. So, mind being my room mate if they say two to a room?

 

TOJU

No. Problem.

 

BOBBY

Yes! (Both laugh) what do you think about the VCs daughter thing?

 

TOJU

Their school. Their rules.

 

BOBBY

I won’t hesistate if I get a chance at her.

 

TOJU

  • You heard him. It will cost you your scholarship.

 

BOBBY

At least I lost it to something good.  Love is crazy. If she is worth it, I will risk it.
