Mr. Bemigho Reno Omokri, a human rights activist and former spokesperson for former President Goodluck Jonathan, claimed on his social media account that when someone passes an exam, it doesn’t mean that the person is really smart.
According to him, it means the person has a good memory.
Reno is known for using his verified social media account as a platform to educate people on how to live a good life and succeed.
He further advised people not to let anyone fool them, thinking they are stupid, just because they failed the exam.
According to his tweet, Reno suggested:
“Reading a book and passing an exam based on what you read means you have a good memory. It does not mean you are intelligent. Intelligence is more than memory. Intelligence is creativity. Don’t allow anyone to fool you into thinking you are dumb for failing an exam!”
