SUG Rag Day: Comfortable “Beggars” Invade Anambra

Written by Vanessa Igboanugo

The on-going Students Union Week in Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University (COOU) is adopting rag-tag colours today with a lot of students appearing in rags. Today is Rag Day and a number of students are participating in the event. The streets of major cities in Anambra State and its environs are streaming with people dressed in rags and abnormally strange wears. We are pleading with the state government agency responsible for grabbing mad people and sending them to mental people’s homes to suspend work today in order not to grab sane people in insane clothing. The event is really colourful.

  37. COOU STUDENTS KICKS OFF RAG DAY
    Students of Anambra State University (ANSU), today April 26th, stormed the city of Anambra State on rags. They splitted themselves into different areas like Onitsha main market, Eke Awka, Asaba and other various places.
    In an interview with Comrade Henry Bible Unogu, it was gathered that the rag day procession involves stickers which are sold at the rate of #200, “any student who doesnot buy the sticker won’t be allowed to join the parade” he stated.
    In another interview with a 200 level student of Law Kenechukwu Miracle, it was gathered that the Comrade did not care about the finance of the students, “how can he ask us to pay #200 for a mere sticker when we don’t know if we will get up to that amount in the parade” she said.
    She added that irrespective of the amount placed on the sticker, it won’t stop me from going for the procession and having fun.

  46. *Coou Students Week “Rag -Day”*
    *Rag*-Day, as it is Fondly called and cherished in our tertiary institutions of learning is a day set aside by the social planners and organisers of institutions which entails students dressing like mad personalities in rags and roaming the street for the purpose of making money
    Currently, this week the Chukwu Emeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University *(COOU*) had her students week, Today being Wednesday 26 2017 the Student Union Government *(SUG*) also organized and fixed a date for d Students Rag-day.
    Just as around 8:45am , we noticed that in major inter-city roads and streets , which were literally overtaken by students.The Students go on shorts , with tops and trousers turned , the young Nigerians approach motorists stocked in traffic as well as passers-by politely and will ask them for money. This action is been done inside the state capital and busy areas near and far from the school premises. I was informed that most of the students who are. “Ragging” are Undergraduates, majority of which were one hundred level students.
    In most schools in Nigeria Wednesday’s was always used to fixed the Rag-day date, approaching one of the students Sindy said” Seriously I’m an undergraduate and you know we normally use this students week to fly around do one thing or the other because we’ve got needs to meet and this seems to be one of the best method so far, sindy” went on to say that they (the students) have to rag atleast to make some cool money.when approached a Student , male who gave his name as Frank Okafor, said they have to do this since “some parents and guidance hardly give them pocket money during holiday periods so they have to use this “Ragging and make some money , he went on to say that he enjoyed the day and any student that didn’t take part had missed alot.
