Nigerian Who Failed WASCE 17 Times Achieves Two Doctorate Degrees in US

A Nigerian, Emmanuel Ahmadu, who failed the West Africa Senior School Certificate Examination (WASCE) 17 times, has urged youths to remain resilient and never lose hope despite the challenges they face.

Ahmadu, recently honored with two doctorate degrees in the United States, shared his advice in a telephone interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Sunday in Lagos. Known as ‘Mr. Voiceover’, Ahmadu emphasized the importance of dedication and self-belief in overcoming adversity.

“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,” Ahmadu stated.

He recounted his remarkable journey from significant personal and educational setbacks to becoming a global advocate for mental health, demonstrating the power of resilience and unwavering determination.

“My 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,” he said.

Ahmadu’s journey is extraordinary, having overcome substantial educational and personal challenges. 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 resilience, having attended 16 primary schools and 14 secondary schools due to family instability, and sitting for the O’level examination 17 times over five years before passing, showcases unparalleled determination.

Upon graduating in Mass Communication from the University of Benin in 2018, Ahmadu received recognition from the vice-chancellor as an extraordinary student, with his achievements archived in the university’s main library to inspire others. He was also recognized as the ‘Most Innovative Student in Nigeria’ and ‘Media Personality of the Year’, among other prestigious awards.

In the US, Ahmadu has continued to make significant strides, earning numerous awards including “Distinguished Student Leader with a Big Heart” from his college and “Outstanding Mental Health Advocate of the Year” by Active Minds.

On June 8, Ahmadu received an honorary doctorate degree in International Affairs (DIA) from Global Seminary University, New York, in collaboration with GEPEA University, Portugal. This prestigious recognition acknowledges his significant contributions to promoting peace, sustainable mental wellness, and hope globally. Additionally, he was honored as a Professional Doctoral Fellow by The Across Global Institute of Foreign Languages (AGIFL) for his outstanding leadership and global achievements in mental health advocacy.
