2. Rice and nkontomire

The rice was usually alright to eat. The challenge was with the cocoyam leaves (locally referred to as kontomire). There was something about it that made students miss their mother's cooking.

3. Beans and Gari

Popularly referred to as 'Gobe', it was one of the favorite meals of students. The pieces of ripe plantain that came with it usually made students sad. There was usually an issue with its quantity or quality or both.
