  1. Hello my fellow student, my name is Samuel. I wrote my WAEC GCE 2014/2015, and the
    result was at waiting and I was crying
    because this was my forth time of writing
    WAEC GCE. So at the process, a friend of
    mine came and was telling me not to be
    crying that my result can be release and
    upgrade with the help of mr alex. So I did
    not believe and I was still weeping until
    when she told me how mr alex helped her
    sister last year. She told me that mr alex
    upgrade two subject math’s and biology for
    her sister. So I now decided to give him a
    try. My brothers and sister as am writing
    this testimony am very much happy for what
    God have used mr alex to do in my life. As i speak now two of my result has

    appreciation for what you have done in my
    family and I pray that God should equally
    help you in times of your needs in Jesus
    name. A close mouth is a close destiny. If
    any of you is having such problem please
    contact mr alex also on 07032076032 and I
    believe God will also use him to bless you
    and your result would be released
