One year to graduation, student withdraws from University, says his O’level certificate obtained through malpractices





With just a year to his graduation, a Sociology student of the University of Ilorin, (Unilorin), Nigeria Abolarin Jephthah, has withdrawn from the institution.

In a letter dated August 12, addressed to the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Academics), Professor N. Y. S. Ijaiya, Jephthah was said that his decision to withdraw from the University was because the WAEC certificate he used to process his admission was obtained through malpractice.




Having encountered Jesus  Christ, he said he was restituting by quitting the University because a ” house that was built on a faulty foundation will definitely collapse.”

Below is the letter:
“With all sense of humility, I ABOLARIN AKIN JEPHAH with matric number (13/77jd010), a 300 level student in the department of sociology, wish to openly declare the reason why I withdraw from the university. Sir, just as a house that was built on a faulty foundation will definitely collapse.

“All through my secondary school days, I am just a church goer without genuine salvation and the fear of God, as a result of this, I got my WAEC result through examinaion malpractice.

“By the grace of God, now, I have encountered the limelight of the gospel of Jesus Christ which called for repentance and restitution.

“Sir, with deep conviction, I have realised that there is no point of building my academic career on a faulty foundation, since the WAEC 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,”he concluded.
