UNILORIN Student Withdraws from School, Says Got O’Level Certificate Through Malpractices

The University of Ilorin authorities have praised the sincerity displayed by a 300 level Sociology student of the school, Abolarin Jephthah, who decided to abandon his studies because he obtained the results of his West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE), through examination malpractices.
Abolarin had written to the university confessing to cheating during his West African Senior School Certificate Examination.
Abolarin, who claimed he had become a ‘born again’ Christian, said continuing his university education, using an unmerited certificate was unjust and immoral.
The University Deputy Director, Corporate Affairs, Mr. Kunle Akogun, who confirmed the letter of withdrawal, noted that the Senate of the university had accepted the withdrawal letter.
He added that the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Abdulganiyu Ambali, commended Abolarin for his repentance and sincerity.
The VC, Akogun added, wished Abolarin well in his future endeavour.
Abolarin was said to have stated that having encountered Jesus Christ and ‘born-again,’ his decision to withdraw from the university was based on his newfound realisation that his foundation was faulty and as such, he can’t continue to be a student of UNILORIN.
Part of Abolarin’s letter reads in part: “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 wihdraw from the university and start all over again.”
