5 Things Nigerian Lecturers Do, And How The Average Student Reacts To Them

May 4, 2020

Lecturer-student relationship in Nigeria is quite something. There are a lot of decisions the lecturers make, which the students cannot object to. However, this doesn’t mean they won’t react under their breath. These are some of the most popular decisions and the accompanying reactions.

Enforcing the 75/80 % attendance rule

“I thought I was an adult and responsible for everything I do now. So what if I don’t feel like attending your class. What does it matter to you if I even fail this course? “

Organising impromptu tests

“This is not the “open for a surprise” situation I signed up for. Why are you so bent on giving me this F?”

Locking the lecture room after 10 minutes

“Look, it took me a lot to get here. You should be glad that I even came at all. Now, allow me into the lecture room and we will forget about all of this.” 

Scheduling classes for weekends

“I know you probably have a lot of free time on your hands, but I’m a busy person, and of all the things I planned for the weekend, attending a lecture wasn’t one of them.”

Giving group assignments

“If you can give group assignments, why don’t you give us free rein during the exams to work collectively as well? Now, I have to figure out a way to work with this person I absolutely detest. “
