Sowore explains why he didn’t do well on his WASSCE

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.”

 

He stated,

 

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.
Thanks!
