At the University of Ibadan, Dr. Bisi, a Nigerian lecturer in the Art Department, surprised his students when he gave out $100 to each of the 10 people who showed up to his first class after the school reopened following the recent eight-month-long strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
The moment was captured in photos and shared on Twitter, with one student expressing regret for missing out on the surprise cash reward. The post caption read, “So…today that I didn’t go to class…Dr Bisi shared 100 dollar notes to everyone who came to class…whyyy.” Another Twitter user shared the photos and wrote, “Ọmọ, one lecturer for art in University of Ìbàdàn give 10 students who attended his first class 100 dollar each 😂😂😂.” The unexpected cash reward has left students with a pleasant memory, and a reminder that attending classes can be rewarding.
Dr. Bisi’s gesture is one that is alarming and pleasing.
