A third-year student of Sociology of the University of Ilorin, UNILORIN, Kwara State, Mr. Abolarin Jephthah, has withdrawn from the school after he got born-again and confessed to have obtained his West African Senior School Certificate Examination, WASSCE, result through examination malpractices.
In a withdrawal letter addressed to the Deputy Vice Chanellor (Academics), UNILORIN, Professor N. Y. S. Ijaiya, Jephthah was said to have stated that having encountered Jesus Christ and become ‘born-again.
According to him, his decision to quit from the school was because his new belief made him realize that he had a faulty foundation and couldn’t have continued with it.
The letter circulating on social media reads: “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 examination 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.”
