Thousands of law students are currently in anguish, as the Nigerian Law School recently released the poor results of 2013/2014 August bar examinations.
PM News reports that out of 6,000 candidates who took the exams, only about 2, 172 students passed. Which means about 3,828 students failed.
Many of the students are said to have blamed their failure on the Director General of the Nigerian Law School, Olarenwaju Adesola Onadeko, whom they have accused of plotting to destroy their careers by failing them. The students have subsequently demanded for a review of the exam and their results.
Some of the students reportedly communicated with PM News about the matter via text messages. Here are some of the alleged messages sent:
“Save Law School Students: The DG Olarenwaju Onadeko has come to destroy the future of over 70 per cent of students who wrote exams in August and has run to the United Kingdom to seek solace.”
“Please save the future of 5000 law school student, so that the results may be reviewed because some lecturers are in support of this movement as they know the DG asked for a lot of scripts to be marked down. Please this is the least you can do.”
“We the law students of Nigerian Law School protest the poor handling and marking of our Bar 2 final exam. Please we need the media to come to our aid.”
