The plight of a Jambito
who is a Jambito? One who has written jamb and one WHO is currently offered provisional admission to read any course in any Nigeria university. In this vein one is simply referred to as a Jambito. The hallmark of a Jambito is that the Jambito is raw, naive and a neophyte. Like the biblical Jonah, a Jambito is thrown into wide ocean of university life that is very complex. If care is not taken a Jambito will allow imagination and fantasy to overshadow the realities of his or her existence. At this juncture a Jambito will start to think and dream big.
One of the most common expressions of a Jambito is that "I am free and free at last". He is Free from the grip and purvey of his parents and guardians especially those from strict homes. With time he/she will lapse into illicit relationship and influence of megalomaniac pimp.The dare consequences will be " campus marriage " and gangsterism.
A Jambito must thread the path of caution. A Jambito must demonstrate discipline and high level of tact in a world infested and fraught with danger of various descriptions.
October rush. Another slogan of the university is October rush. This is the period a Jambito is very new into the school system. Especially, men will rush the female folks with good or bad intentions.
Some men will claim that their parents own presidential hotels, rock view hotel or even concord hotel in owerri. This is a portraiture of affluence and wealth as to catch the attention of the female Jambito and entrap her.
Any female Jambito should know that all that glitters is not gold. It is the whole duty of mortals to fear and worship God. High academic attainment should also reflect craving for God and dwelling in his presence for ever, therefore holiness, righteousness and satisfaction should be the hub of every Jambito. A Jambito should strive for perfection.
