Omoyele Sowore has stated why he failed his West African Senior School Certificate Examination.
“It was how it ended after that first attempt,” the media personality remarked in a Facebook post in reaction to the uproar sparked by the documents he provided to the Independent National Electoral Commission.
Sowore, on the other hand, claimed to have taken a “second attempt at WASCE at a different high school before getting enough credits to win entrance to the university.”
Yesterday I uploaded my education credentials meant to be submitted to INEC Nigeria today as nominations close for Presidential candidates running in the 2023 Presidential Election.
Many have asked why I performed so woefully in my first attempt at the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASCE), well, it was how it ended after that first attempt.
I did state that I took a second stab at WASCE at a different high school before securing enough credits to gain admission into the university.
I just couldn’t give up until I made it and got admitted into UNILAG in 1989 to study Geography and Planning. In fact, my late dad demoted me by asking that I go back to “Class 4” after that woeful result I posted yesterday. After securing admission into UNILAG I had to combine the two results to get matriculated.
I appreciate the engagement provoked by sharing my not-too-good WASCE/GCE result yesterday.
