WEIRD: 300 Level University Of Ilorin Student Withdraws For Having Cheated In His WASSCE— See Details


Jephtap Abolarin a 300 Level Sociology student of the University of Ilorin wrote a letter to Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Academics, Prof. Sidiqat Ijaiya, on August 5, 2016, in which he stated that he wishes to withdraw from the school as he said he cheated during his West Africa Senior School Certificate Examination. He claims he has become a born again Christian and says that he no longer wishes to continue to use what he had gotten through an illegal and immoral means.
The university Deputy Director, Corporate affairs, Mr. Kunle Akogun, has confirmed the withdrawal of the student. He also added that the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Abdulganiyu Ambali, applauded Abolarin for his sincerity and also wishes him well in his future endeavors.
Abolarin’s letter to the DVC read, “Just as a house that was built on a faulty foundation will surely collapse, it is also certain that a career that is built on a faulty foundation will definitely collapse. All through my secondary school days, I was just a church ‘goer’, without genuine salvation and the fear of God. As a result, I got my WASSCE result through examination malpractice.
“By the grace of God, now, I have encountered the light of the gospel of Jesus Christ, which called for repentance and restitution.
“Sir, with deep conviction, I have realized that there is no point building my academic career on a faulty foundation; since the WASSCE result I got through malpractice is the basis in which my admission into this university was anchored.
“Therefore, I have decided to withdraw from the university and start all over again.”
This Nigerians is honesty in its purest form although it may hold some consequences it still pays at the end. This is what we hope for in the coming generation as this gives us hope that they are going to build a better Nigeria than that of their predecessors.
