The story was shared on X by Alex Onyia, who said Oluebube lacked the money to register for JAMB.

This is despite doing exceedingly well in the WASCE, where she scored 9Bs and 1 A.

Oluebube’s WAEC result shows that she scored A1 in marketing, B2 in economics, B3 in civic education and B3 in English language.

Alex further said that Wigwe University, Isiokpo, would support Oluebube in furthering her education if she does well in JAMB next year.

He said:

“Good News. Wigwe University will be supporting her education and, in addition, offer her scholarships in a related course of study if she does well in her JAMB next year.”

Reactions as girl does well in WAEC

@SienceTalk said:

“Nigeria is the only place where students are required to take 3 examinations- SSCE, UTME and Post-UTME for university admissions.”

@DCO_Danny said:

“I think a lot needs to be done to identify some young people in this kind of situation in most communities. They need every support they can get to enable them to have the platform to utilise their God-given gift/ability.”

Meanwhile, a Nigerian lady visited the secondary school where she graduated to collect her original school certificates.

The lady said she went to collect her WAEC, NECO and JSCE certificates at the Navy Secondary School in Calabar.

Everything she spent, including transportation fare, amounted to N40,000, and she said she has finally finished with the school.
