Oga op, ur write-up is good but not in context with naija. I know of hood guys that graduated with excellent grades, I mean they taught their fellow students during their school days, but right now its over 6-7 years of graduation they are still eating mama-thank-u. Meanwhile those they taught are now living big.

When a Degree is not who you are.
Gani Fawehinmi was the best legal mind of his time in Africa but he was not even the best in the University days, truthfully, he had ordinary pass in his Law degree, not even a third class degree. He could be classified as "let my people go" in those days.
After Gani left the University and passed his Law school , there was nothing ordinary again in his life, he was the best in everything he touched. He wrote lots legal books and journals in Nigeria. He visited Courts more than those who made First class in the same school with him or those who became SAN before him.
Gani's presence in any court was a big news to the Press and the nation, he was delightful and reassuring to watch, he spoke the language of his profession like an angel and every judge knew him as a man of integrity.
Gani was the most honorable lawyer Nigeria ever produced, to most Nigerians particularly the poor and middle class,he was their hope, and epitome of graceful expectations of how to prosecute cases, he made legal profession honorable.
Gani's most memorable case to the Oracle was against Rotimi Williams over integrity. He made a mockery of the man Nigeria called *Rotimi the Law* the Chairman of the 1979 Constitution drafting committee of 49 wise men. It was supposed to be 50 wise men until Awolowo pulled out of the committee.
The first appointment given to Rotimi William as Attorney General of Western Region was by Awolowo as Premier. It was the mistake of the Head of State Gen Muritala Mohammed to think Awolowo could serve under Rotimi unfortunately, he never consulted Awolowo before the announcement on the radio.
Rotimi Williams had sued Gani over his integrity and like Shylock he wanted a pound of flesh, the flesh that will show the nation Rotimi was the law. He also wanted an open apology in the court with the Press and new radicals of media like Dan Agbese, Dele Giwa, Mohamed and Ogunsanya around. He got more than what he bargained for.
When Gani stood up, the poor and middle class stood up with him, if Gani had failed lots of his fans would have cried openly in the Court but he turned things around. He took few steps towards the Judge and demanded to put Rotimi the Law on the witness stand for cross examination.
No one had ever done that in the history of Nigeria, probably in Africa. Rotimi was not a short man either probably around 6.2 ft, tall and huge with sharp penetrating eyes, broad shoulders, his presence took away the oxygen in the room, he was the attention in any Court.he was indeed the Giant of legal profession.
Rotimi wore his robe like a rag and if the event could be biblically assessed it was like David standing next to Goliath. Rotimi had everything his profession could offer, fame, money and power, Judges bowed before him and who would not? He wrote the law of the land.if not why would he be called* Rotimi the law*
To the surprise of the nation, the presiding Judge granted the request of Gani to have the man that was greater than life on the cross-examination box. Gani had a mischievous smile on his thin lips, he knew he had Rotimi by the balls, he was going to tear down the wall to show Nigerians how coleric his adversary was.
The hate was glaring, we knew the occasion would be historical as we were about to witness how David of Nigeria legal profession would defeat the Goliath of the learned colleagues.
Gani asked if Rotimi ever attended the popular High School in Lagos, he mentioned. Rotimi had no choice than to confirm he did. Gani told the Court to look at Rotimi Williams as a student of the High School who stole a calculator or so and was sent out for stealing if such a thief had any integrity?
Rotimi never had any integrity he said infact he lost it from his High School days and wondered what he wanted to protect as an adult. Gani Fawehinmi concluded. Rotimi was almost in tears.
The Judge called the two lawyers to his chambers and Rotimi withdrew the case. He never recovered from the bruised of the shame which the Press sensationally reviewed on the pages of the newspapers and talk radio.
From Gen Gowon to Military President Babangida, they were all scared of Gani Fawehinmi. Gani was a friend of the sick and the poor, a philanthropist with special attention to education where he noted his own weakness, he gave Nigeria his all, energies and commitment to the rule of Law and love for humanity.
If his profession were to be military, Gani would be more than a four star General. He was indeed what a Lawyer could be, to this Oracle, Gani was the Perry Mason of Nigeria law.
The Oracle says, what you make out of your University education depends on what you put into the society. Your degree is not a waste it is template for you to understand life and contribute meaningfully to the society, the man who made a difference is the one with education to improve his environments not the paper qualifications.
I beseach you my readers to have a renewal of spirit and mind in how you see life, let you goal in life be guided with your contribution to your your society and never looked down on anyone who came out of the University with ordinary pass. He could be the one to make a difference.

There are so many courses where no one asks for your grades before giving you any employment. I did marine engineering and it's a field where no one gives a shit about what you graduated with. Once you get your license no one cares. We even have chief engineers and captains who don't even have degrees but they have sailed long enough to acquire licenses. The only downside to a bad grade is you won't be able to do a masters degree or get into a top MBA program easily. It doesn't mean it's impossible but you will need to proof yourself.

op what u said is true ooo but at this level where nigeria schools and institutions have gotten too we cant just say that grade is a reflection of someones input or ability like for example i graduated last year an through out my days in the university i never sorted any course my guy i just dey get c upon c ever time i check my result why because i dont have money to sort(bribe) i read like a mad dog some lecturer even gave me an e when he took me in year 2 and and two e when he took me in my final year i even got an f(bcause of missing script) i did all i can just to still have a good grade i read and read still i got c, b was like a scarce comoditty i still came out with a second class lower , i have seen people with third class doing very well outside and the lazy ones will say grade doesnt matter too me i think it matters but what i notice is that grade is not a true reflection of someone capability or ability what i think is that if someone is hard working it will show any all areas of his life and that person will be successfull

Gtuns:bro, you are still talking of one person here
buh i would partially agree with u on this wise quote which says "what is meant to be will surely be"
though his integrity must have qualified him to be in that post even if we aren't sure, buh one thing is for sure no matter how intelligent or hardworking you are u still need to tender a good result @least that shows your true picture
|Re: 5 Things That Happen When You Graduate With A Poor CGPA by DAntivirus: 11:07am On Jul 09, 2017|
now I disagree with you... most made men aren't made because of certs or brilliance... its being prepared for that opportunity and praying for favour for that opportunity to come...
success to me is simply preparedness+opportunity
who says several men didn't meet the same opportunity Dangote met but guess they just weren't prepared to make the most out of it

If grades are to be gotten effortlessly, nobody will go for third class and pass. Grades measures the level of knowledge and commitment in ones' field of study. Even the pass graduates that own businesses will not want to employ graduates like themself but will got 2. 1 and 1st class. Go for the best!
|Re: 5 Things That Happen When You Graduate With A Poor CGPA by Hdanny(m): 11:15am On Jul 09, 2017|
I can feel your pain bro, u really worked hard to earn ur grades even tho u are not satisfied with it buh @least u tried ur best, nd may God reward ur sweat
back to the topic, graduating with third class or pass doesn't mean u won't have a good earning buh the most important tin is that is good to work hard for a good grade incase you want to further more even if @all help will still fall on u
everybody knows the truth, we are just trying so hard to hide from it.

Anything worth doing is worth doing well, it baffles me how some people promote mediocrity by saying grades do not matter.
Grades does matter, at least it boosts your self esteem and I can't imagine an organization that goes by grades in recruiting considering a 3rd class graduate before one with first class honours or second upper.
Imagine comparing a third class graduate of Harvard, Cambridge, Oxford or other ivy league schools with one from a Nigerian university.
I don't believe anyone should start off anything in life with a mediocre mindset, always aim for the best, and make the sky your springboard. Even when you don't achieve your set out goals, you won't be far behind.

6. You forgot to mention that it can motivate you like crazy to want to excel in life knowing you've got minimal lifelines. You won't leave any stone unturned because you feel you don't have an edge, but failure or the threat of failure is actually a better motivator than little comforts. Those who have made a mark in this world have been dubbed failures once. They failed not for lack of trying nor lazyness, but for abscence of proper motivation.
Einstein, Fawenhinmi, Abe Lincoln, Edison, Bill gates, Steve Jobs, Buhari 2BABA, etc. Either drop outs or had very poor grades in school.
Many folks are motivated by failure especially when they did everything they could to succeed to no avail. It doesn't apply to everyone though.
Your failure can make you develop other skills that propel you. Now that is proper motivation. Excel or fail in grades, ke3p pushing. You fail when you stop pushing.
