A lecturer with the University of Ibadan, Bisi Olawuyi has denied the reports alleging that he gave 10 of his students, 100 dollars each for attending his first class.
This comes after one of the students of the lecturer tweeted that some students were gifted a 100-dollar note for being the first students to attend the lecturer’s class following the suspension of the Academic Staff Union of University (ASUU) strike.
The student made the tweet with a photo of the dollar note that was supposedly given to those present in class.
The tweet went viral, as other students stormed the lecturer’s page in droves to solicit for theirs.
However, the lecturer via Twitter 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 this. Thank you.”
