A lecturer in the Department of Mass Communication, Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University (COOU) has given away free textbooks to his part-time students to encourage them to attend his lecture.
This is the second time the lecturer is giving free textbooks to his students to encourage attendance to class.
The unnamed lecturer was unhappy that the part time students were giving excuses that their work was preventing them from being regular in class, a claim the lecturer did not agree with.
He then promised to give his textbook for free to those who make it to his class.
The entire class came and he gave them the textbook used for the lecture for free. The incident took place Friday, May 31, during his lecture with 300 level students of the department.
The students took to their social media handle to celebrate the gesture which they said they did not know a lecturer could do.
Last semester the lecturer had given free textbooks to 200 level regular students. This time he extended the gesture to part-time students.
