Paul was born into a family of three. His father is a corporate worker who sets out as early as 5am in the morning only to return home at 10pm and above. His mother was a business woman who sells provisions in wholesale and retails. She also closed as late as 10pm. Paul has two junior sisters who were in KG 2 and primary 4 respectively while he was in SS2.
Due to lack of parental monitoring, paul had mingled with the bad guys in his neighborhood. Every evening after school, he would go to the neighborhood to play, the bad guys would send him to buy cigarettes and alcoholic drinks. A times, he would be sent to call a pretty lady passing by.
At ss3, paul had started smoking Indian hemp, his parent tried so many times to correct him but he had turned to a dry fish difficult to bend. Paul had became notorious in the neighborhood causing trouble and atrocities. He wrote his first jamb after ss3 at 18 but he failed. he made another 3 attempts at the next 3 consecutive years and still failed. he was frustrated with his failure and yet, he wouldn’t give up on his bad attitude.
He was at home one day watching a programme on the TV station and after the program, a religious program came up. Paul was captivated by the preacher and followed the preaching from bumper to bumper. It got to a point, the preacher made mention that “you should make a difficult vow with God and be serious with it. It should be something that will cost you pain . And tell God that if you can do this particular thing for me, this is what I will give you/ do for you.”.. Paul got the message and decided to give it a trial. He promised God to be born again and served him with the whole of his live on campus and beyond if God could give him an admission the following year. As luck would have it, Paul gained admission to study micro-biology the following year. At the beginning of his year one. He was finding it difficult to born again due to the high number of pretty chicks who are freshers on campus. They are indeed tempting and seductive. The way this girls packaged their assets could make a G.O commit “side-game”.
At first semester, Paul enjoyed life, bleeped 3 freshers and clubbed forgetting that he made a promise to God. Towards the end of first semester, he had a dream seeing an old man in white gown reminding him of the promises he made before he got his admission. He woke up and began to cry, he cried and realized he didn’t fulfilled his promises. The following week, he joined a fellowship of one of his numerous girlfriends.
At the beginning of second semester, Paul had became a changed person. He doesn’t flirt and clubs again. He joined bible study and Prayer units. He was so fervent in the service that he doesn’t miss any of the weekly programs and activities, you would always see paul at every campus religious gatherings and events. At 200level, he was made the bible study secretary of his fellowship. He was so diligent in the stewardship that he was made the president of his Fellowship at 300level. All through this periods, Paul was binding and casting out demons and doing special miraculous works. The entire campus could feel it that there was someone named Paul.
He graduated from school and went for his NYSC and was posted to a public secondary school in calabar, that was where trouble started…………………….
