Resurrection of ABUgists
ABUgists was conceived in July 2011 in a single room of 4 people in area BZ around the ABU stadium. I went for lectures that morning and on getting to my class I saw everyone running up and down,I was surprised and I asked and was told that we were having GENS test! Now am really shocked because there was no prior notice of any kind to alert us that there was going to be test that day,later on we got to find out that the office assigned to share the bulletin to that effect did not,And then the idea came as a flash,that the students needed a platform where all abusites within or abroad can always get the most IRRELAVANT and sometimes relevant news about their prestigious university and walaaaa, I began consultation that night, for someone like me, if I have an idea and I’m not implementing it I start having constant headache, totally lost sleep and sometimes I’ll need to go to the toilet often.
I managed through the night not been able to wait for morning to come. 7am next morning I was out of the house headed to evolution café in social centre, I got there and I had to wait for the attendant to resume work around 10am now I was extremely restless and I had to write my idea on a paper because like they always say “An idea written with the faintest of ink stick longer than that in the brain”. On the guys arrival, I paid for my café time at the entrance, I could not wait anymore, I have to get all this things off my head and I created a blogspot that morning (http://abugists.blogspot.com).
Few weeks later I paid for my hosting plan (http://www.abugists.com), I felt accomplished, I also retained my Mr anonymous. I worked day and night with the help of a few friend getting post and event images around the campus, I had to start missing lectures to get the headlines. Wake up 4am every morning, surf the web for my breakthrough post. Made banner, posters and flyers. Telling every abusite their dream is already here.
I became so careless feeling I was already received and loved by all, I woke up on a Monday morning checked up my site and it’s not available online logged into the backend space and all my 400 posts were gone. I was hacked….i became miserable and lost all hope.
Just a night before that faithful day I wanted to make a back-up of my post but the lazy in me told me to sleep and do it the next morning. My earlier back-up device got destroyed.
7 years later, I was discussing with a friend about my dreams and he said that would have been you best work ever and you shouldn’t have given up on your dream. I revitalized the dream and here we are ABUgists is back full time and here to stay forever… Welcome home ABUSITES and others.
