In a combines suspense, frustration, and an unforeseen twist, legal practitioner Eddie Idom-morphy, Esq. recently revealed the surprising role Star beer played in his admission to the Faculty of Law at the University of Uyo over two decades ago.
Eddie’s quest for academic success took him from Ogoja to Uyo, where he eagerly sought his name on the admission list. The atmosphere was charged with anticipation as he combed through the list posted on the notice board and walls of the university. However, disappointment struck as Eddie realized his name was missing from the coveted list.
Feeling the weight of a long and unsuccessful journey, Eddie made an unconventional decision. With a pocket containing just enough cash, he decided to seek solace at a nearby drinking joint opposite the university gate. There, he ordered a bottle of Star beer, hoping to drown his sorrows.
Little did Eddie know that this seemingly casual choice would alter the course of his day. After consuming the first bottle, a sense of calm washed over him. Encouraged by what he humorously refers to as the “Star mystique,” Eddie decided to give the admission list one more try. To his surprise, he discovered his name on the same list that had previously eluded him.
The serendipitous moment left Eddie in awe of the unexpected ally he found in Star beer. Reflecting on that fateful day, he acknowledges the unique role the beverage played in guiding him through a moment of disappointment to a revelation of success.
Eddie, now a seasoned legal professional and former Commissioner of the Cross River State Independent Electoral Commission (CROSIEC), attributes his resilience and adherence to principles to the fortuitous guidance he experienced that day. He encourages responsible enjoyment of beverages like Star beer and emphasizes the importance of embracing life’s unexpected twists.
As the legal practitioner raises his glass to the new year, he invites others to join him in celebrating the journey, the surprises, and the unlikely heroes that make life’s narrative truly remarkable.
