Girl emerges best female student in NECO
In a message exclusively sent to Legit.ng, Ifebube showed a letter she got from NECO inviting her to the award presentation.
Also, Ifebube sent a copy of her result, showing that she scored 9A1s in the examination, which she wrote at Renaissance Garden Schools, Lagos.
WAEC certificate seen on the street
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that a copy of an original WAEC certificate was used to wrap suya and dropped in the streets.
Information on the certificate shows that it belongs to Oweisana Braduce, who scored A1 in Economics and C4 in the English language.
He sat for the WAEC examination as far back as June 2011, and he was born in 1991.
The candidate also scored B3 in Agricultural Science and B3 in Biology. But curiously, the record for mathematics was missing.
