Tales from Obubra-Departure Day

If there had ever been a time I questioned or insulted myself for studying law, I am truly sorry

Its day 9 and I get to leave this camp simply because I am a law student.

So all law students have our final graduation ceremony coming up and we had to sort out our clearance from school so NYSC had no choice but to let us go.

Somebody shout hallelujah!!!

I woke up this morning, packed up my bags and walked towards the gate. I handed in my exit letter and answered all the questions that were thrown at me.

I just couldn’t wait to leave.

After I was through with security, I put my stuff in the cab and then it was time to say goodbye to Obubra.

But suddenly, I felt a wave of emotions. I had this tight knot in my chest. It was pretty hard saying goodbye to the friendships I had made over the past couple of days.

We had hugged each other really tight  and had spoken about how much we were going to miss each other.

You spend a couple of days with people in arduous situations and it never really dawns on you the type of bond you have created till it’s time to go.

I looked at the gate one last time with mixed emotions, got into the car and I smiled as the gate faded away from my rear view.

I could finally say it; GOODBYE OBUBRA

The journey back to Calabar took about 4 hours 30 minutes simply because I believe the driver was trying to prove he was a die hard fast and furious fan!

I got into Calabar at about 5pm and I had the opportunity to see a bit of the town.

I visited the Mall and was quite impressed.

I had a proper dinner for the first time in a long while.

And after that, I did a little sight seeing around the town as well.

I must admit; Calabar is really beautiful.
