Today i will write about my friend Danjuma Lawi because he has been on my mind lately.
It’s so weird how you see someone around all the time but you never have any sort of connection until something brings you together.
I remember the first time i took notice of you. It was during our law of trust & equity class. I was sitting close to Abdulmalik, we were clowning around as usual and you were sitting beside him. Abdulmalik turned and asked me Billy; do you know who he is? I was clueless back then and i replied no i don’t, he said this is Danjuma Lawi he is the one leading in our class, i turned and jokingly said from today we will be good friends;you laughed and said no problem and that was how we became one.
I remember when i had difficulties in some of my courses you would take the time to explain them to me patiently until i am able to grasp it.
I remember when i was confused on what topic to write for my final project, we sat down and went through what i had interests in and i ended up with a topic under international law that today i have a masters in. You took the time to go to the library with me to check for sources and also provided me with all the material you had with you to use at my disposal. You sat down with me as they worked on my project, i remember that day because i was so overwhelmed and your presence helped a lot.
I remember how you were quick to laugh easily, easy going regardless of the fact that you were blessed with such talent.
I remember how you would call me when i was in Lagos law school when almost all my friends were in Abuja campus to give me words of encouragement and ask if i had any issues with the courses i should not hesitate to call you. I always did appreciate that about you.
I still think of you from time to time because of the kindness you exhibited towards me.Whenever i remember you i always say a prayer for you. God always has his reasons and it might be that whenever we think of you we only remember the good you have impacted in our lives.
Continue to Rest In Peace Danjuma Lawi.
