Emmanuel Ahmadu Bagged Two Doctorates in US After Failing WAEC 17 Times

The story of a Nigerian student, Emmanuel Ahmadu, is fascinating as it shows that no condition is permanent. That you failed today does not necessarily mean you won’t succeed tomorrow. Consistency in pushing forward, regardless of academic woes, is one of the keys to academic success.

The Nigerian student Emmanuel Ahmadu, who faced challenges by failing the WAEC exam 17 times, has successfully earned two doctorate degrees in the United States. He encourages young people to demonstrate perseverance and resilience in pursuing their goals.

He said, “Seek out opportunities for growth, leverage available resources, and connect with mentors and supportive networks. Remember, every setback is a setup for a greater comeback. Keep pushing forward, and your efforts will eventually yield success.”

He also noted that his story is a beacon of hope for youths facing similar challenges, inspiring them to rise above their circumstances and make meaningful impacts in their communities and beyond. According to him, he first gained international attention in 2018 as the International Award for Student Brand of the Year in West Africa while studying at the University of Benin (UNIBEN). His story of resilience, having attended 16 primary and 14 secondary schools due to family instability, and sitting for O’level examination 17 times over five years before passing, showcases unparalleled determination.

My take from his story is that failure is for those who fail to push further after defeat. However, success will be guaranteed if you fail to give up and keep pushing.
