A Nigerian filmmaker, (name unidentified) said he found out seven years after graduating from Olabisi Onabanjo University (OOU) that his admission was fake.
The digital marketer shared his story while replying to a netizen who urged people to narrate what made them realize life was vanity.
He said he finished from the Ogun state varsity with a second-class upper in Biochemistry in 2009, completed his NYSC in Delta State in 2011 and started working at a bank in 2013 after months of fruitlessly searching for a job.
Three years later, he was to get a confirmation letter only to be dismissed by the bank.
According to Legit.ng, he said it was heart-wrenching and a life-shocker to learn about the sad development in his admission status.
“…It was at the point of confirmation we discovered I had a fake admission, and my matriculation number was assigned to another person who happened to be the one with the original admission but he was a drop-out. I lost everything aside from my name and it was heart-wrenching,” he recalled on Twitter.
Similarly, Legit.ng reported that a lady had said she found out her admission was fake after three years in school.
The young Nigerian lady set the internet on fire with her painful experiences in life while maintaining cheerfulness.
In a Facebook post, Omolara stated that 2023 will make it exactly 10 years since she finished secondary school but is still without a tertiary education degree.
The lady stated that since 2013 she began taking JAMB exams, admission had never been forthcoming despite doing well in the examinations.
