Nigerian lady bags Ph.D. at 23 after failing jamb in 2008

A Nigerian lady identified as Winie, has bagged a Ph.D. at 23 after she failed her first Joint Admissions Matriculation Board examination in 2008. According to the excited lady who took to her Instagram page to thank God for the achieved milestone, she said the Ph.D. came before her 24th Birthday. She wrote:

'God has been too faithful. I'm not sure there are any words to use or describe how I feel. God has been a ROCKSTAR. I failed my first Jamb in 2008. A Ph.D. came before my 24th Birthday.  To anyone reading this, God is Faithful, God never fails, God is very dependable, and it's never late. Thank you to all my family, friends, and my amazing blog readers, Love you' she wrote.

Nigerians continue to misunderstand what a (degree) Phd signifies,Phd means going into the realm of master thinking to bring about a good new creation or resolving a problem. I heard on a Lagos radio station of a young lady with 5 Phd degrees and not one! thing being researched brought to light. Girl real celebration will actually come from the creative fruit for humanity from your Phd. Anybody can bag a Phd degree. Congratulation on your Phd degree though.

Madam Linda and her Comments Task Force (CTF). If you like dont post this comment. Do you think it is cheap to buy data these days?

Please where is Tolu Ogunlesi, President Buhari's Special Assistant on digital/new media?

I am waiting for him to ask what this exceptionally talented young lady will be doing with a PhD at 23 years.

Please take note that she is a Nigerian and DEFINITELY NOT from Senegal!

Congratulations to her. What a great achievement!!! (Clapping)

How will you insunuate a PhD will not do anything in somebody's life? For me I have not seen any jobless PhD holder. Try and get one okay...When you do u will understand what it means to the lady.
