UNIBEN graduate who wrote O’level exams 17 times finishes NYSC with many awards


The story of Nigerian graduate, Emmanuel Oluwasayomi Ahmadu, known as Mr Voiceover, has shown that anybody can make something great out of life no matter how strong the challenges may be.

Before he became an undergraduate, Emmanuel wrote O’lvel examinations on 17 different occasions and sat for JAMB five different times, Guardian reports.

In his earlier interview with the media, he said that he once had a very hopeless view about the future. He said he felt really sad to see his colleague move ahead of him and become graduates.


Fast forward to 2020 and it would seem all that happened to him then only made very strong. He just finished his National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) programme, winning several awards.

While showcasing the awards on his Instagram page on Friday, July 24, he said that that he has served humanity.

Akahi News earlier reported that a Nigerian man with the name Vicent Adeoba shared his story to show that no matter how rough one’s road is, you can still make it if there is strong determination.

Vincent said that he lost his dad at a very young age and his mom passed away when he was four. Two years after that at age six, he started hawking bread to survive.

A year after that, he started his primary school education, which happened in the year he ran away from home.

At age eight, he sold things like okra, garden egg, garri, fish, and others. Between the age of 10 and 19, he had to wade through many challenges like surviving flood, dropping out of school, and failing WAEC.

The good story about it all is that he became a tax consultant at PwC after he had graduated from Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife.

He also started a business at the age of 22 and two years later, became a millionaire. At 26, he won the Lagos state NYSC inter-platoon debate, among several achievements.
