A Nigerian lady identified as @Butterbibi trended on social media after claiming she failed her final bar examinations.
She had taken to social media to make the announcement just for the fun of it, and checks by YabaLeftOnline shows that she was just catching cruise for the sake of trending on social media.
The Nigerian Law School had released the results which are a prerequisite for being called to the Nigerian bar, on Tuesday, July 6th.
A total of 1,325 persons have failed the bar final examination 2021 the Nigerian Law School released result on Tuesday. The statistics by the Council of Legal Education showed that a total of 5,770 persons sit for the examination.
However, there were 1,326 failures which formed 22.98 per cent of total participants.
Twenty students (0.007%) bagged first class, 432 (7.49%) bagged second class (upper division). 2,172 (37.64%) students bagged second class (lower division) and 1,725 (29.90%) got a pass.
In the breakdown of the result, 35 (0.61%) students had conditional pass, while 60 (1.04%) students were absent. The result of the examination is a prerequisite for getting called to the Nigerian Bar.
Thus, successful participants will be called to the Nigerian Bar in a call-to-bar ceremony scheduled to hold on July 27 and 28. The Director of Administration of the Nigerian Law School, Elizabeth Max-Uba, confirmed the release of the result.
The social media Lady apparently, saw this as an opportunity to trend on social media and she did so.
UPDATE: She has now confirmed that she was indeed ‘catching cruise’
