Imagine! UNN Best Medical Graduate Rewarded with N10,000 Cheque Publicly

This picture has gone viral and it is enraging Nigerians.  The picture shows the the best Medical graduate of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN)receiving a cheque of N10,000 in a public function. If this cheque were given to her secretly no body would have bothered. But the idea of celebrating an event where the best Medical Student is commended with N10,000 seems appalling to many social media users, whether it was given by an association as is being claimed or by the faculty. It is such a serious event that a GTB cheque was used.

Rewind events: In this same society beauty pageant queen go home with brand new car and Big Brother Naija winner goes home with N25m and a brand new SUV.

That is how the society sees education, according to social media users who ae unhappy with this development.

What do you think about this?
