Ifeoma Ezeonu, a professor of Medical Microbiology & Molecular Genetics at the University of Nsukka, has reacted to the report making rounds that the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, graduated with a pass in Philosophy.
The lecturer in a post on her Twitter account said when she hears people talk about Obi studying Philosophy she laughs, wondering what he was looking for in that department.
Ezeonu who noted that she didn’t meet Obi in school said she heard that he was busy with business while in UNN.
According to Ezeonu, Obi graduated with a pass not because he was not intelligent but because he was in the wrong department.
She further stated that the presidential candidate has earned other certificates in what he loved doing (Business and Economics).
Ezeonu in her post wrote, “As a lecturer, when I hear them talk about @PeterObi’s Pass in Philosophy, I laugh.
From what we know of PO today, I wonder what he was even doing in a Philosophy Dept.
“Lol I didn’t meet him in UNN, but those who knew him say that even as an undergrad the guy was doing business.
“Just in case some people didn’t get my point.
“He made a Pass because he was in the wrong Dept not because he’s not intelligent.
Since then, he has earned other certificates in what he actually loves doing – Business and Economics.
“That Pass is irrelevant to what he can do.”
