Glo's Prof Johnbull Wants Students To Shun ‘Trial Marriage’

Bimbo Akintola
The rampant habit of harbouring female students by some male students in tertiary institutions of learning tagged "trial marriage" is the theme of this week's edition of the sensational TV drama series, Professor Johnbull, sponsored by leading telecommunications operator, Globacom.
Globacom said in a statement issued in Lagos that the new episode, titled Campus Marriage, would be aired on Tuesday on NTA Network, NTA International on DSTV Channel 251 and NTA on StarTimes at 8.30p.m.
"The issue of ‘trial marriage’ is common among undergraduates, especially those in institutions where there are no established official accommodation or hostel facilities. While in some instances, the campus couples do have the chance of living together as husbands and wives after graduation, the majority have tales of woe as the relationships hit the rocks leading to avoidable heartaches. Campus Marriage, therefore, highlights the dangers of ‘trial marriages’ and the lessons therein are not only for the young ones in schools, but also for parents and guardians", the statement added.

Whilst urging viewers to make it a date with the series, Globacom noted that "in line with the tradition of Professor Johnbull to highlight moral decadence in the society, the new episode airing this week touches on this behavioural tendency  that has eaten deep into the fabrics  of social and family values. Viewers will certainly have value for their time as they watch Campus Marriage”.
Starring Kanayo O. Kanayo as lead character, Campus Marriage also features Olaniyi (Yomi Fash-Lanso), Etuk (Imeh Bishop), Ufoma (Bimbo Akintola), Jumoke (Bidemi Kosoko), Flash (Stephen Odimgbe), and Churchill (Jnr. Pope Odonwodo), who are all regulars in the sitcom.
In the latest episode, viewers will have the opportunity of getting to know what ‘trial marriage’ is all about and whether, indeed, Jumoke has changed from being a pretentious lady. They will also find out who falls victim of campus marriage and whether trial marriage  is real or mere fantasy? Professor Johnbull will close it with his  philosophy on campus marriage.
The repeat broadcast of "Campus marriage" will be aired on the same television channels  at 8.30.pm on Friday.
