A Nigerian man who was told during his final year clearance that his admission at Abia State University was invalid after spending 4 years to study Mass Communication decided to repeat 4 years, making it 8 years of study and has now emerged the Best Graduating Student of his department (2017/2018).
According to the brilliant man, Ramsey Mgbeahuru, this happened in 2014. He had to enroll again, paid school fees for another 4 years and graduated for the second time in 2018.
He has since served and is currently working with a reputable broadcast media organization at Abuja.
When the story began gaining momentum on the internet, GistReel got in touch with him and he confirmed the story as credible.
Ramsey told GistReel in an exclusive interview that he had written to the school’s senate and also mailed the school management severally in 2014 when it happened but nothing was forthcoming so he decided to enroll again while awaiting school’s verdict.
But funny enough, the school (Abia State University) never replied him till he graduated again in 2018.
The admin of a popular Facebook group shared the story, he wrote;
“This is Ramsey Aka, after 4 years of studying Mass Communication in Abia State University, he was told during final year clearance that his admission was invalid – not authentic.
“He could have sued the admissions unit or the entire school; he could have drank a small bottle of Sniper and ended it all; he could have taken out this disappointment in any negative direction.
But he said no…
“He was asked to repeat all over again.
He paid the fees of each semester again, same tests, sat through lectures all over again, new project topic with same stress.
“This time around, he graduated at the top of his class as the best in his department. Did his final clearance and now serving as a youth corper. [NB: Ramsey told GistReel that he’s done with his service year and is currently working].
“What if he had allowed the devil to convince him towards suicide?
“Yes, it might take a longer route at times, but we shall surely get what we pursue fervently.
“Nothing, absolutely nothing is beyond us.
“May this message get to the soul it was intended for.”
