7 book characters that will make you miss your childhood play

These characters will remind you of your primary school days

(Stella Dimoko Korkus)

In the 90s, book publishers in Nigeria made our primary school experience awesome with their lovely characters.

The books we read from primary one to six had unforgettable characters.

These guys (the characters) saw us through our primary school education. We loved them because we used to read about them every day.

It's been a while now, we need to look back at those guys in the books that made our childhood fun.

Let's meet some old friends.

1. Ali

Ali was a good boy, he used to cut the grass on Saturdays.

You remember Ali? He is Simbi’s brother. He used to cut the grass every Saturday. Don't forget their parents were Mr. and Mrs Salami.

2. Simbi

Simbi, Ali sister was a popular book character in the 90s.

I am sure you remember Simbi quite well. Of course, she is Ali's sister. The last time we read about her, she was dressing to go to school. Simbi Salami by now would have bagged Ph.D. degree.

We met Mr. Nwosu, that very responsible man at primary two. We can't forget how he bought big chickens for Christmas that year.

4. Agbo

7 book characters that will make you miss your childhood play

Agbo lived in the town of Lagun but we don't know where he town is in Nigeria till date.

(omgvoice)
 

Agbo we were told used to live in the town of Lagun and like many of us back then, he used to wake up very early for school. But where is this town of Lagun in Nigeria?

5. Edet

7 book characters that will make you miss your childhood play

The young Edet was very popular among Nigerian pupils.

(omgvoice)
 

The young Edet was a Calabar boy. Those days our teachers were telling us about Edet, the boy was just 8-year-old. Young and very popular among Nigerian pupils.

If you don't know Edet, stand up, raise your hands and close your eyes. That's your punishment for not knowing our legendary Edet.

6. Ralia

7 book characters that will make you miss your childhood play

Ralia the sugar girl's story was sweet

(omgvoice)
 

Aww! How can we forget Ralia the Sugar girl?

Her story was truly heart-breaking. Remember her parents were disabled and she was taking care of them when she was kidnapped. These kidnappers sha! they've been around for a while.

Well, Ralia escaped from their den and we were happy the Sugar Girl returned home safe and happy.

7. Gandoki

7 book characters that will make you miss your childhood play

We learnt Gandoki was Garba's father.

(omgvoice)
 

Who doesn't remember Gandoki, the warrior? He was said to be Garba's father and he was a Muslim and he loved to tell stories to kids.

Are you missing your primary school friends and teachers already? Eyah!

Let's appreciate all those who contributed to these awesome childhood experience. The teachers and the book publishers that gave us these good friends through their books. We love you all.
