Popular businessman Obi Iyiegbu, (aka) Obi Cubana, has narrated his experience while on his way to the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, for his convocation ceremony. Sharing a picture of himself on Wednesday night, Obi Cubana, who chairs the Cubana Group, recounted how he used a ‘night bus’ to travel from Abuja to Nsukka for the ceremony.
“In 2009, we were going to the University of Nigeria in Nsukka for our convocation ceremony from Abuja, in company of some of my friends and classmates: Nze, Ultimate, Onwa, Ogali, etc!!!
“We entered a bus from Area 1 Garki Abuja to Dumez, near Suleja so we could enter a cheaper ‘night bus’ instead of boarding from Jabi Park! We got tickets for a battered Mercedes Benz 1414 commuter vehicle, attachment!
“Inside the 1414 battered bus, there was zero comfort, especially attachment! You dared not sleep because if you happened to rest your head on the shoulder of a trader that had ‘full seat’, you’d receive a slap or a punch, depending on the mindset!
“We managed to get to Obollo Afor in the morning, where we would now take a bus into Nsukka. Getting to where we contributed money to stay for the entire Convocation, I realized I lost one of the pair of my adored and priceless “schools” shoes.
