Pastor Chinedu Eze, who was released from prison after serving a 14-year sentence for a crime he didn’t commit, has narrated how he took the Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (SSCE), administered by the West African Examination Council (WAEC), to advance his academic career.
The preacher, who was born in Enugu, claimed he failed the exam on his first try but passed on his second attempt.
At the Silver Lining for the Needy Initiative (SLNI) 14th anniversary, Pastor Eze told a Punch journalist about how he continued helping people even after the WAEC results were announced.
He claimed that he persisted in enrolling at the Christ Embassy Church-sponsored National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) to study Peace and Conflict Resolution.
“I took my time to write and compose 157 songs while in detention and wrote seven books”.
Hauwa Abass, the founder of the organization said the organization won’t stop from assisting the needy in society and fight injustice in Nigeria.
