A social media user has taken to his page to narrate how he denied the good voices in his head, and gone ahead to reduce the test score of a well deserving student.
The Nigerian man identified as Mfoiso Isong, recently took to Facebook with a post in which he narrated the thoughts he had contemplated, and his final actions, while he was helping a university lecturer mark his students’ examination scripts.
According to Isong, while he was marking the scripts, he stumbled upon the exam papers of a student who scored 70 in total. However, before giving the student the deserved score, Isong narrated that a voice in his head nudged him to do the right thing, but he declined.
Instead of scoring the student 70, which would have amounted in getting a grade ‘A’, he reduced the score by 1, making it a 69, that would have the student ending up with a grade ‘B’ score.
Isong continued his narration by disclosing that the reason for his action was because he did not want the student going to church and giving a testimony of how hard he prayed to God, and how brilliant he was.

Sharing the post, he said: "Give am 70 na, a subtle, but still voice told me. It was my good side, but I just decided to ignore it. Early last year, a lecturer friend asked me to help him mark some exam scripts. I jumped in and did exactly what was on my mind. So, there is this particular student that had 70, but I decided to give him 69.
I felt happy and fulfilled. I mean, me think that if I give this dude 70, he will go and testify in church about how he prayed fervently and all of that. He will go on and brag how brilliant he has always been. See, I'm not that wicked, I just like people sitting up."
Some of his followers took to the comment section with heavy backlash for what he had done.
