What I Learnt About Gani Fawehinmi by phintohlar(f): 1:47pm On Apr 08, 2019
"Prof. Jubril Aminu was once the VC of University of Maiduguri.
During his tenure, there was an Aluta struggle and some students were rusticated.
Four of the rusticated students came to Gani Fawehinmi to challenge the action.
He fought the case to the Supreme Court and won.
The students went back to complete their studies.
Later, Gani was arrested over his anti-SAP conference and was flown to Maiduguri, then driven to Gashua. At the Lagos airport, not knowing where he was being taken to by the security men, Gani played a fast one - he told his captors that he wanted to use the toilet.
He got inside the toilet and quickly scribbled on a toilet paper - "To whoever uses this toilet, this is Gani Fawehinmi. I am being flown to an unknown destination by security men. Please, let the world know". He placed it in a conspicuous place, flushed the toilet as if he just used it and came out.
When they got to Maiduguri, they had a brief stop over at the SSS office, where a lady officer offered Gani a cup of coffee.
Gani was hooked on coffee like drug. But this time, the will power of Gani came on. He told the lady officer -"so you people have got information that l can't do without coffee. You think you can poison me? From, today, I stop taking coffee ". That was how he ended his addiction to coffee.
He was later moved to Gashua prison, in a most decrepit cell where he collapsed after some substances were sprayed in the cell.
He was rushed to the University of Maiduguri Teaching hospital. When he regained consciousness, he found a doctor examining him and he protested, asking the doctor not to touch him.
The doctor, not wanting the security men guarding him to hear, he whispered to Gani's ear - "Chief, you are in safe hands. Can't you recognise me? I am....., one of the medical students rusticated whom you fought for our reinstatement. I am now a doctor. So, relax. You are in safe hands".
And that was how Gani's life was saved - reaping from the good deeds he did earlier, which he had forgotten"- Richard Akinnola....
Moral of this real life story:
Be good always and it shall come back to you!

You forgot to add that he didn't charge those students a dime...

He was so influential in Nigeria judiciary..that his weekly law publications is almost a compulsory to buy by every lawyer in the country for case citation...

We taught keyamo...who served at gain chambers who initially started in gani's footsteps will tend to something...alas after the senator afikuroyi's case...where keyamo was later jailed...he gave up nd joined the stealing politicians against the masses....

Fulana has also become political....

Rest in peace to gani...who created a scholarship foundation dt award varsity schorlahip...especially to people from the north....

He is always in our heart!
