Ndubuisi Emmanuel Ikechukwu, a former student of the University of Lagos (UNILAG), says the institution “almost killed him” with frustrations over poor academic results.
Ikechukwu, who now works with Microsoft, an American multinational technology company, brought the revelation to light in a thread on Twitter.
It all started when a Twitter user initiated a conversation on the microblogging platform, asking other users to introduce themselves with what almost killed them in life.
Reacting to the post, Ikechukwu wrote: “Hi, I’m UNILAG”. He then buttressed his point with a screenshot of the transcript issued to him by the varsity.

The result of his last semester as a second-year student of electrical and electronics engineering at UNILAG showed that he did poorly in most of the courses he took at the time.
A breakdown of the result also showed that he had four Fs, two Es, three Ds with only one credit in the courses he took.
Ikechukwu has, however, continued to blaze the trail since he left UNILAG and reportedly travelled to the United States to further his study.
In a post in October, the young man flaunted a medal which he won in a hacking contest as well as his identity card as a staff with Microsoft.

His revelation has since provoked several reactions on Twitter, with many taking to the microblogging platform to also share their experiences at the institution.
“UNILAG breaks you. Then it slowly kills you. I’ve broken. Remaining death,” a user wrote.
“Many Nigerian public universities are the problems tbvh. The system makes you fell like you’re not doing enough, even when you actually put in your all,” another user wrote.
Below are other reactions:

Lmao Nigeroans will tell you that's what they love about UNILAG and these other Federal Unis.— Bruce Bateman Esq (@demigodgeous) December 27, 2020
The Lecturers put you through suffering so you can grow like Batman, not like those private unis where everyone can pass and get first class. https://t.co/L9VT8Zes6u
If you see my first result from unilag and my first result from howard university side by side, you won’t believe it’s from the same person.— i’m a nervous wreck (@_tiredt_) December 26, 2020
Nigerian federal universities are designed to make students fail and only God knows what they gain from doing that. https://t.co/yV9K8YUq2x
The saddest part of this is that, if he was still in UNILAG, he would not have graduated yet. But he left and this young man has actually done a lot.— Ebubechukwu (@The_Ebube_) December 27, 2020
Do not let anyone lie to you, if you can, NEVER EVER GO TO A FEDERAL UNIVERSITY IN NIGERIA!!! https://t.co/kIRk5SHU6Z
