University of Nigeria Awards N1,000 to it’s Best Graduating Students as Prizes

The University of Nigeria Nsuka, (UNN) Enugu, has being dragged on social media after it was revealed that the institution awards a sum of N1000 and N1500 to its best graduating students in several categories.

The 49th convocation of the University of Nigeria Nsuka, (UNN) held last Thursday. As reported by SaharaReporters, parents and visitors were disappointed and angry that the first-generation university could award such “ridiculous prizes” to its best brains at a public ceremony.

The prizes and award night programme booklet of the best graduating students obtained by SaharaReporters, confirmed that the university awarded the said prizes to its best students.

Some university workers drew comparisons between the university’s paltry prize money and Big Brother Naija, where the winner takes prizes worth millions of naira.

They added that even runners-up in the Big Brother Naija show still smile home with magnificent prizes such as Sports Utility Vehicles in a television programme devoid of academic rigour.

It could be recalled that during the 2020 Big Brother Naija ‘Lockdown’ show, Olamilekan Agbeleshe also known as ‘Laycon‘ went home with prizes worth N85million.
