Northern graduate's English on Facebook amuses people

Legit.ng previously reported that a Northern graduate's English on Facebook had left netizens in stitches.

The graduate, who claims to reside in Katsina state, made a heartfelt post on Facebook with signing out photos in which he celebrated bagging his Nigerian Certificate in Education (NCE) degree.

The post was filled with grammatical errors and blunders, too bad to be dismissed as typographical mistakes. Many thought such should not come from one who, by virtue of his degree, may become a teacher in the nearest future.
