RETRO: UNN Says I Was Too Small, Couldn’t Take Me In – Anosike Favour

A singer,  comedienne, and on air personality who goes by the name Anosike Favour took to her social media account to tweet on how she was refused admission to study at University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN), because she was assumed too young to be in the University, despite the fact that her UME scores were above the stipulated  cut off marks for the school.


Favour, who is now popularly referred to as Itootok, graduated from Alex Ekwueme (AE FUNAI) Federal University Of Ndufu Alike Ikwo,  formerly Federal University Ndufu Alike Ikwo (FUNAI), where she studied a course in biology.

The OAP stated in her write up,  how she had increased her age and  had gone to a court,  to swear an affidavit to enable her get admission to the university. “My dad and I went to aba north to swear an affidavit of my age… It was increased by 3years abi was it 4 years sef Because I just couldn’t stay at home….”

She however admitted the fact that she lied,  and went further to call out on anyone who hasn’t lied to throw the first stone.

See her write-up below:-

It’s amazing how people who don’t bat an eyelid about you keep tabs on you …. I love you all jareh.. 💁💁

So here’s the deal…

My size… my age

People keep mixing the stuff up like mai chai

I was six (6) in primary 3 when I sat for common entrance examination at Wise Brain Academy (that was in 2004) I passed and gained admission into Ninlan Demonstration Secondary school … I was then 7 Seven in Secondary school JSS1 (very tiny Lol)

**Fast forward**
Secondary was over in 2010 .. Wrote jamb… Applied UNN (biochemistry) … Above cut off … UNN said they couldn’t take me in…. I had turned 13 then. They said it was 16 years or nothing ….
I had to wait at home for an extra year before FUNAI came along, now AE-FUNAI

FUNAI admitted me in 2011 (New school)
My dad and I went to aba north to swear an affidavit of my age… It was increased by 3years abi was it 4 years sef
Because I just couldn’t stay at home….

School couldn’t kick off in time due to infrastructure placements , so we all chilled till 2012.

I was now 14 turning 15 (thanks to our academic calendars) in 100level. .. Tiny smally 😝😝

**Fast forward**

I graduated FUNAI at 19 in 2016 (studied microbiology) Got my call up letter for NYSC in 2016 too and served till 2017.
Finished service in 2017

Got a job immediately I was passing out

Plenty Job offers ooo, for something I didn’t study in school (call me favoured)

So …… Right now I’m 21 and I’m happy

We have all made mistakes….we have all lied about things… I have lied…I agree 😎😎

Cast a stone if you have never lied…
