A 300-Level Sociology student of the University of Ilorin has written to the Vice Chancellor, explaining that he withdrew from the institution because his Ordinary Level result was obtained through malpractice.
The student (name withheld) said he took the decision to withdraw after giving his life to Jesus Christ, a decision he said would not allow him continue in sin.
In an August 5, 2016 letter to the Vice Chancellor, the Sociology student said a house built on a faulty foundation would surely collapse, pointing out that he would start all over again.
Since encountering Jesus Christ, the student said his genuine faith requires repentance and restitution which necessitated his voluntary withdrawal.
His letter read in part: “Sir, just as a house built on a faulty foundation will surely collapse, it is also certain that a career that is built on a faulty foundation will definitely collapse. All through my secondary school days, I am (sic) just a church goer without genuine salvation and the fear of God, (sic) as a result of this, I got my WAEC result through examination malpractice.
“By the grace of God, now, I have encountered the limelight (sic) of the gospel of Jesus Christ which called (sic) for repentance and restitution. Sir, with deep conviction, I have realized that there is no point building my academic career on a faulty foundation; since the WAEC result I got through malpractice is the basis in which (sic) my admission into this University anchored (sic).
“Therefore, I have decided to withdraw from the university and start all over again.”
The various levels of the university authorities have recommended that his letter be passed on to the institution’s Senate for final consideration.
