‘Without feelings of respect, what is there to distinguish men from beasts?’-Confucius.
Zik hall in the University of Ibadan is well known for its “Aroism” — an avenue where Zikites make jest of themselves and other non-residents especially females.Aro is a unique brand that almost every men in Ui campus has subscribed to like Mtn network.The ridiculous part of it is that whenever our inactions seems to challenge their actions,their justifications would stem out of the fact that Aro is an Antidepressant therapy that soothes people from Academic Stress.Zikky Guys would call you a ‘whore’ in Public…when you had the slightest chance to confront some friendly foes among them,they would dribble you like Super eagles’ ball hiding under the canopy of saving you from the heart attack of BOL(The invaluable and illegal document where Uites check their GP every semester)….Soothing or no Soothing, who dat one don epp?……You see….i f you think it is the best way to make people happy….Then try ignorance,make people into fools for a day,shake them off and they would still think about what makes them sad the next day….You can’t Satisfy people.
If you think it is the surest way to make you a Zikky or National Hero,Try to cause an empty uproar in an open road to become popular,you will get the beatings of your life if people found out how empty you really are …it simply depicts that you should always consider the negative impacts of whatever you do….i t does not only affect the victim…the sender becomes a fool too..
If you think calling her a whore would change her because you know a bit of her secrets…Try Thomas Monson’s words ‘When we treat people merely as they are, they will remain as they are. When we treat them as if they were what they should be, they will become what they should be’
I am not adverse to the fact that all work without play makes Jack a dull boy but I believe everyone deserves respect irrespective of their race,hall and sex.Respect cannot be bought with Nigerian Naira,pounds,rands.. name them…Let’s try to make sarcastic Comments responsibly.
