I won the much coveted MTN scholarship just after my first year in Uni. It was a proud moment for my family and I, and my widowed mother could not have been more grateful. MTN was set to pay me 200k every year provided I remained on a first class/2.1.
A date had been fixed for our results to get to @MTNFoundation . I went to meet him and pleaded with him and he arrogantly walked me out of his office saying I was supposed to bring a percentage of what @MTNNG paid me to him and a percentage to the department.#sexforgrades
Deadline for sending verified result passed and I had to go to @MTNNG office in Ikoyi to explain the situation, they were kind enough to reach out to the Dean faculty of engineering asking him to look into the matter.
The Dean called me in for a meeting and summoned my HOD.
At this point I was devastated to say the least. I put away every sense of pride, followed my HOD and started pleading, this man literally screamed at me saying if he sees me within sight again, he'll call UNN security on me and lock me up. #SexForGrades
I understood that the people (students) have become soooooo oppressed that they have become willing to give their dignity for freedom. And this is what this lecturers leverage on, this is what births the entitlement culture. #sexforgrades
