TRUTH IS BETTER BEING TOLD: THIS POST CONTAINS THE SYNOPSIS OF WHAT I DID BEFORE I
GOT ADMITTED INTO THE UNIVERSITY IN 2013. READ MORE TO LEARN, AND DON’T FAIL TO SHARE WITH OTHERS.

would be foolish of me enjoining you to be courageous, optimistic, and
undaunted without unveiling to you my own life challenges, experiences, and
solutions to my own conundrums getting to where I’m today.
not make up my mind writing this true story either to earn your comments or
your likes, but to encourage you (aspirants), and also to enjoin undergraduates
as well as graduates to share their own version of experiences with the aim of encouraging others.
with an open mind and try to grab something didactic from these experiences of mine. I
articulated this piece in a way that even a lowbrow can comprehend it.
you have come across my true life stories or not, by the mercy of God I was one
of the best students of my set in secondary school days.
My name is Chukwunonso
Emmanuel Asiegbu, popularly and jocularly known as NDJP, The InspirationalParrot, currently a Graduate of Applied Biochemistry, Nnamdi Azikiwe
University [UNIZIK], Awka, Anambra state of Nigeria.
I attended the great
Nnamdi Azikiwe Secondary school, Abagana [NASSA] in Njikoka L.G.A. of Anambra
state. I left secondary school in 2010, but got admission in 2013 into UNIZIK.
My dear, not
that I wasn’t intelligent nor diligent, but at times our poor performance and
ill-lucks when it comes to admissions are spiritual than mental − it only takes
the true Spirit of God to fathom what I’m really expatiating.
made good grades in WAEC [A’s and B’s], but wrong decisions when it came to
choosing choice of Departments were one set of problems I encountered.
not just read my books, I study them − in fact I swot. I was even a tutor in a
tutorial center, even my students were thinking that I was already a graduate then because I taught them with passion owing to the fact that I have a call in
teaching albeit I tried to dodge from it beforehand but God refused.
I was not
teaching just because of money, I even refused to handle some other subjects
given to me. I taught others, they sat for exams, passed and got admitted:
imagine how you would be feeling if you were in my shoes then; yet, I remained
humble and patient.
All through the earlier times I sat for JAMB, I did put
wrong courses: I was able to discover this in the early period of 2013 before
registering and sitting for JAMB only through the paranormal Grace of Almighty
the previous registrations, my spirit was telling me to put Biochemistry, but I
turned deaf ears to that, upon all my efforts, yet I didn’t make it to
university in 2011 and in 2012 despite my good scores in JAMB.
I was really living a shallow Christian life then
[not that I’m a Saint at the moment], some people won’t understand what I am
talking about, because even some in universities already couldn’t.
2012, I went for Microbiology, unfortunately for me, a lot of candidates chose that same course and that made the cutoff mark to increase, and I couldn’t make it; still my
students were making it, even those I was better than in Secondary school were
already in 2nd or 3rd year.
But, Chinonso still remained optimistic, though
hoping in God but did not realize the appraisal of God in the journey of my
was still with me [no wonder my name is Emmanuel]; even though I was living in
ignorance of some facts about Him, He did not leave me in the lurch, I said so
because it was those years I was at home that I realized my flairs in
motivational writing, and was able to acquire other skills that are helping me
at the moment.
To cut the story short, in 2013, I vehemently decided to go for this
Biochemistry my spirit communes to my mind. I registered and started the
preparation, but, then I have known the essence of God in unleashing my destiny.
My dear, people’s destinies ain’t the same; for instance, a guy may be using
manifold girls without protection, yet he won’t contract STDs nor impregnate
any; but another lad may just do the same thing once, and calamities would pile
up on him.
There is need for you to sit yourself down and think about the
mysteries surrounding both your miseries, histories, and victories.

dear friends, in that same year, my first girlfriend left me after three years
of our lovely affair [owing to distance barrier according her; I am not saying
categorically that her leaving me helped me to gain admission, though that made
me to think much about my life, my destiny, and my future at least].
remember that then, many would not believe I had a girlfriend [hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha],
anyway, such is life.
It was during that time that I discovered The Chapel [The
Dwelling Sanctuary Of The Blessed Sacrament]. I always went there for
meditation [even up till today], realizing that there was at least a positive
difference in my life each time I visited there; all serious preparations been
Finally, I made up my mind with phenomenal faith to embark on
consecutive 21-day visitations to The Blessed Sacrament (the condition been
that if I missed any day, I would start afresh and I was to use the first 21
Chapters of The Book of Psalms, that is from Psalms 1 to 21, each Chapter for
was not easy, to tell you the truth, I started afresh for about two times; even
one of the occasions was when I had gone half of the 21 days; but I did not give up
because my faith was high having known vividly that my success is nigh.
a task I gave myself – BECAUSE FOR SOMEONE TO BE AMONG THE GREATEST, HE MUST
HAVE TO PASS EVERY GREAT TEST!
To the Glory of God, I completed it and my life
took a new conformation, many inhibitors unbound, activators of progress cleave
to their allosteric sites.
In fact, many active sites of better living were
restored in my life from states of denaturation − a denatured life became recaptured,
restructured, and renatured.
A defiled destiny was refined; a vile life was
made fine− NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH GOD. I was even thinking that the utmost
happiness comes from our loved ones, but I realized it comes only from God.
Also, my siblings joined hands in praying for me for success in my admission −it
was a concerted effort. So, it was a task I did not relented on my own efforts all alone.
sat for JAMB, it came out and I made 226, no hope was lost. Time for POST-UTME
came, I wrote it and made 66 [aggregate of 245].
I was riffle with fears, but my
utmost hope and trust were outright in God. “If God did it for others, He will
surely do it for me”, I always encouraged myself with such statements.
My dear, ADMISSION LIST came out, behold, I was admitted
through FIRST BATCH. You see, your INTELLIGENCE alone ain’t ample; you need
DILIGENCE, COMPETENCE, CONFIDENCE, PATIENCE, PERSISTENCE, EXPERIENCE, GOD’S
PRESENCE, GOD’S PREEMINENCE, GOD’S WISDOM, inter alia.
Whenever I call on GOD,
He answers and hearkens to my pleas so long I have amended where/what I’ve done
synopsis, all I did may not be all you should do and succeed; you may need to
do more than or less than − depending on your own destiny and the mysteries
controlling your life.
I have been sharing many motivational and encouraging
updates [dictum, stories, photos, videos] online; you can always visit this site to keep enjoying more of them.
If you have an experience to share with others, we
can help you to publish it online, it might be published gratis or terms and conditions

I share my life experiences not to be pitied for, but to teach

One of my quotes says
thus “ERRORS OF YOUR PAST IF NOT [PROPERLY] CORRECTED WILL BECOME THE
TERRORS OF YOUR PRESENT; AND IF STILL NOT AMENDED WILL TURN TO BE THE HORRORS
OF YOUR FUTURE! ~NDJP~.
My dear friends, for your future to be bright, you need
God’s might, and you should endeavour to do aright those things that are right.
I know I couldn’t include some other things in attempt to make this story snappy
and precise, but I believe that every bit of information on this piece is substantial.
