Professor Sarki Abba The Genius That Broke WASCE Record Even Under Duress

Sarki Abba who hails from Kano State is the genius that was made to rewrite WASCE after scoring 9 distinctions 


In 1984, 16-year old Abba, a student of Science Secondary School Dawakin Tofa, scored 9 distinctions (8 A1 and 1 A2) in his West African Senior School Certificate (WASCE) Exams. 

Examination authorities in Lagos didn't believe Abba made those excellent scores without cheating. The authorities provided a car that took Abba to Lagos in order to retake the exam. 

Abba was made to take the 9 exams in a duration of 3 days, under heavy supervision. After marking the rescheduled exams, he scored 9 A1 (the only ‘A2’ he had in English Language before the retake, became ‘A1’ resulted to 9 A1) Faced with shock, the authorities apologized and instituted the National Merit Award. And, rightfully, Sarki Abba was the first recipient of the award. 

 In 1989/90 school session, 21, Sarki Abba graduated as OVERALL BEST Medical Student, and OVERALL BEST Graduating Student at ABU, Zaria— he was just 21.

  6. Wow...very impressive.

    You see hausas ba?? When you meet the intelligent ones, they are INTELLIGENT! I have met a few that have genuis level IQs. It's just opportunity and religion that is the problem.

    I keep wondering if Nigeria will ever get to a point where a sitting president will appoint based on credentials and not by compensation and the tribe won't matter for once.

    This is the kind of man that could have revamped the medical sector with his expertise if given a chance but politics will never allow it.
