I was shocked and disappointed when I came across this news, how a Girl commits suicide over JAMB score because nothing in this life is more important than your life that is why I wrote Going to School or being a graduate is not a do or die Affair
In as much as education is very important, you should as well know that going to university is not a do or die affair, I understand that you want a brighter future but permit me to say this, sometimes the most successful people in your start or your hometown might not be educated.
Many Landlords that builds the house you are staying are mostly illiterate and yet they are living a comfortable life and the most annoying thing is that 50% of students who gains admission into the university forgets what they came to do and start doing another thing
All am trying to say that your life is more than anything because once there is life there is hope.See how a young Gire ends her life because of her poor Jamb result.
A girl, simply identified as Loveth, aged 18, and resident of Imowhe Street, had gone to check her JAMB score on Tuesday, where it was discovered that she performed below her expectations in the exam.
Sources at the centre disclosed that the girl, who scored 160, started crying, saying “My father will kill me.”
Another source, who visited the girl’s family residence, disclosed that she had collected three bottles of the poisonous substance from her mother’s shop the previous night.
According to the source, “the father said he did not scold her for her result, but only told her that there is no way she would get admitted to study medicine in the university of her choice.
“Feeling slighted for her poor performance after her encounter with her father, she went to stay with her mum in their shop, collected the poison after they closed.
“She brought it home and drank the content. Her lifeless body was discovered on Wednesday (yesterday) morning.”
It was gathered that after her remains were discovered, her parents rushed her to a Pentecostal church at Upper Agbarho for prayers, where she was confirmed dead.
At press time, efforts to speak with the state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Andrew Aniamaka, was fruitless.
