Below are some of the reaction his post got:
"Pls I need some schools offering scholarship in Canada or Germany that don't require any English test."
"I’m studying for my MBA online in the UK, and the school uses a Special Software called “Turnitin Plagiarism Checker”. It opens your yansh for any Duplicating Contents in your assignments, and SOP. This is Something the Nigerian Educational System didn’t teach us."
"The challenge is not that we are dull, Nigeria Tertiary Institutions’ curriculum just don’t foster creative writing for the most part, especially in the Sciences and Engineering schools. Reasons many otherwise brilliant guys struggle with SOP. I agree, folks speak to consultants."
"Peeps want to leave Nigeria because it's a mediocre country, yet exude mediocrity in other people's country. Is it not now evident that Nigerians are Nigeria? - whatever the country is - we also are. Refusing to accept this fact has to be the biggest denial in recent history."
