UNILAG almost killed me, says ex-student who now works with Microsoft


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.
