A lecturer at the University of Ibadan has alleged rewarded students that showed up for his first class following the reopening of school.
The varsity lecturer identified as Dr. Bisi Olawuyi, stunned students when he gave 100 dollars each to the few who attended his lecture.
Recall that the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) recently called off its 8-month-old strike and higher institutions have already asked students to return for academic activities.
The union went on strike to demand full implementation of agreements it had entered into with the Federal Government a few years ago.
According to reports, the lecturer who is in the art department called for lectures but when he reached the hall, he saw only 10 students.
He then handed each of them a $100 and they decided to take photos of the rare unexpected moment.
A student who did not attend the class lamented after missing out on the cash rewards.
”So… today that I didn’t go to class… Dr Bisi shared 100 dollar notes to everyone who came to class… whyyy,” the caption read.
A Twitter user who shared photos on the microblogging site, wrote; ‘‘Ọmọ, one lecturer for art at the University of Ìbàdàn give 10 students who attended his first class 100 dollars each.
However, in a later development on Tuesday, October 25, 2022, the lecturer dismissed the claim as false and advised Nigerians to disregard it.
Dr. Bisi wrote: “My attention has been drawn to a tweet circulating that I gave $100 each to 10 students. This is not in any way true. Please kindly disregard. Thank you.”
