Jimi, the protagonist plays a self-discovery, fortitude and endurance role in the fictional story of amiable relationship between family and friends: The Last Days of Forcados High School. His adversities that is actually emanating from his family literally opened a series can of worms for him. Which was amicably solved by his fling lover, Efua Cooker.

Recalling, those last days. How he inadvertently humiliated his ally friends over the leaked letter she Efua intended to write to his co-benefactor, Miss Novi. Though the culprit was Jolly, an art student. Who did it intentionally Because his advance to Efua was rebuffed. On the ground that Miss Efua had no time for boys. Supposedly because she attended girls’ only school, according to the writer.

Jimi last days at Forcados wouldn’t have been a severe scourge, if he hadn’t inflicted into trouble by his elder brother, Wole. Over the missing lab key that gave Wole and his squad access to loot equipment off the lab. Tell me, could the problem be so exacerbated for him, if he hadn’t lost his Mother that finds tranquil for him mostly. Besides, who knows if it was Jimi’s adventurous that brought their mother sickness. But, it was just all about a story, we shouldn’t assume that.

But everything back to place when Jimi was free from intentional infliction he caused himself. By sharing his brother nemesis after Efua interceded for him, Which made him felt guilty of being stupid in the first place for the negligence he showed during Efua’s entanglement.

Meanwhile, Efua’s intercession vindicated him completely and discarded other people’s thought that he was in compliance to steal the lab equipment.

Besides, let me reiterate that: The Last Days at Forcados High School only give an insight on how friends can be often helpful in one family’s plight. Jimi had no mother; his father was in exile. The only uncle was good-but-nothing. Yet, he overcame all the challenges, adversities through his friends’ aid – Nene, Ansa, and Efua.
