ABU Zaria Denies Girl Who Scored 302 In JAMB Admission For Medicine & Surgery by ochejoseph(m): 3:21pm On Dec 19, 2019
Dear Prof Garba This Should Not Happen In ABU Zaria

It was Martin Luther King Jr who said that “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.'' it was on the premise of this that I decided to open this thread when I stumbled on a post by my journalist friend and brother George Onmonya .

I was Pained by the details of the post and decided to draw the attention of JAMB and Prof Ibrahim Garba the current Vice Chancellor of Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria an astute administrator in who I strongly believe will act in the Spirit of justice equity and fairness.

I Have decided to reproduce the facebook post George Verbatim in order not to dilute it's content

Attention: Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria

*Goodness Thomas*, the Valedictorian of St. Clement Secondary School, Gbaiko Minna, Niger State for year 2019.

This girl scored 302 in her JAMB, 274 in Post UTME at the ABU Zaria. She has 6 A1s (including Maths, Biology, Physics and Chemistry) in her WAEC yet ABU Zaria denied her admission to study her course of choice, Medicine and Surgery.. rather she was offered Human Anatomy.

ABU Zaria cut off mark for Medicine and Surgery is 250. She surpassed that score by 52 points.

She is currently demoralized by this act and we need to fight for her. She is only 16 years old and does not deserve this trauma."

https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10218422876754656&id=1575764303

It is unimaginable that in this age someone with English , Mathmatics , Chemistry, Biology and scored one of the highest scores in recent times in both JAMB and the Post UTME will end with a course she never when those who scored half of what she scored will end up as medical students.

To deny this girl this admission is to cement the the wrongly held notion that the ABU of today no longer values merit . Using religious quota under any guise is a sacrilage that no Nigerian Muslim or Christian should be subjected to.

Those charged with the responsibility of correcting this error should remember that the tenor of human positions no matter how highly exhalted will one day come to an end only Gods tenure is eternal.

This is very unfair except if ABU has some other meaningful reason which I can't think of now. Perhaps she should do change of institution and try another university.

That's to avoid victimisation if she gets into ABU.

Northern Nigeria thrives on mediocrity, see the kind of president they gave us, someone who never address Nigerians or Nigerian press directly what we are always hearing is this.
The president was ATTRIBUTED saying that no no haram has been defeated
As narrated by Garba shehu he said Mr president when he was about going to his private quarters made this statement
As was narrated by Lai Muhammad the president said that the boko haram sect has been technically defeated he was in London when he made the statement
As was narrated by Demi Adeshina the president was sitting down and was watching the super eagles match when he said that and I quote" insha Allah boko wil
l be defeated
As narrated by Lorita onochie, it was when members of ohaneze came to see him with some Palm wine in daura that he said boko harms was collaborating with IPOB to destabilize the country but they are on their way to be defeated, he was on his palour
And this statement was made same day, our president is a DEITY

The available slots for that discipline was purchased by those with money.

There's nothing like merit in Nigerian Universities and work places too.

Admission and Jobs are being sold.

The question is what happened and why she was denied admission. She has a very high score. You cannot tell me that everyone that got admission into that course in ABU Zaria had above 302, NOT POSSIBLE!

Most times we keep shouting injustice because we want to trend and forget to ask for the full story. Let us ask what happened first, was it ethincity motivated or because she is female or what? Then we know where to head from there.

I'm saying this because I don't see any special reason the school will deny her admission.

Your name is Goodness Thomas and you expect to be given admission when there are a lot of Zainabs, Rukayats and Rashidats out there from ELDS states.

This country needs to be balkanized, I swear. We can never be one.

Very very unfortunate. This has been happening for a long long time. At least give some room for merit, irrespective of the region the candidate is coming from. Nepotism will kill this country faster than anything.

A girl like that should not settle for ABU.
