Activist and Presidential aspirant, Omoyele Sowore has explained his extremely poor West African Examination Council ( WAEC) which he submitted as part of his credentials to contest for the position of President.
Below is Sowore’s post on the controversial result.
“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.
