INSERVICE STUDENTS REFUSED FOOD
By MOMO MONIC
It was on Friday evening that the in-service students refused to take their supper meals without any reason.
But according to reports from them, they refused food because of the missing cases they registered on Friday during lunch, but when they complained to the compound manager, he promised them changes in the evening. Burt in the evening they said the situation was made worse when they got a good amount of posho with small sauce which could only satisfy ten people.
However, they said, some good Samaritans from the pre service students contributed them sauce from the respective families but still the sauce could not divide them all.
However, few of them ate their food, though the largest number refused and later others commented that, “Do not be like the foolish flies who had no adviser and followed the corpse to the grave,” because everyone eats for himself since the rate of feeling hungry differs and who are others to command them not to eat?
As a result, they refused to work the following morning and frankly told their supervisor that they slept hungry and therefore cannot work on a hungry stomach.
This prompted the compound manager to divide them into the respective families since they used to eat two breads two pieces of meat per person but they have been reduced to one bread like the pre-service.
This story to some extend has reduced the budget since they used to eat two breads per person.
