A viral photo trending online shows the cheque of N10,000 given to the best Medical graduate of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN).

The cheque was presented to the best medical graduate on their day of Induction and swearing ceremony, which took place recently.

According to reports, the money was given to the awardee on behalf of University of Nigeria Medical association and Guaranty Trust Bank.

This generated a lot of mixed reactions as some believe the amount is too small for a medical graduate, they believe a car or a larger amount of cash should be given to the awardee not N10,000.


In a rather ironic twist of our moral decadence in the society, the best graduating student of University of Nigeria medical department was rewarded with a meagre sum of N10,000.

In a country where beauty pageant queen go home with brand new car and Big Brother Naija winner goes home with N25m and a brand new SUV, there’s little or no inducement for academic excellence.


See reactions below…

iyanga_girlie Imagine and a reality TV show that doesn’t even educate the youth gets 25m for rubbish… Chia this is not done na

porshextacey Haba …. D money small na …. Yet dey will be sponsoring 10 million for one rubish talent abi music hunt

graysuave Even the banner they used for the shoot are you sure it’s not almost N10000; they would have simply given her cash or check ….

According to one comment, the user said it’s from the association alone that the department has pledged N200k to the outgoing student.

sommy_okpala It was from medical students association. Our Faculty board gave her about 200k. Stop defaming University of Nigeria. We are much better than that.

When I heard one of my nephews was not good at playing football, my heart skipped several beats. And this was well before PSG did a madness to sign Neymar.

His mother later said he did well as a goalkeeper and, at five years old, there’s still enough time for him to become competent in a more advanced position.

Not many kids of today are like the ones before the late ’80s who would reply ‘What will you be when you grow up?’ with ‘Doctor’, ‘Lawyer’, ‘Engineer’ without thinking.

Now? Kids won’t even tell you, you’ll just start seeing signs of Wizkid, DJ Cuppy and whoever else is famous and making money.

Enter Neymar, who became the world’s most expensive footballer and will be earning a staggering N270m per week after tax (after tax o, Mother Mary) when he signed for PSG last week.



N270m every week and I’m here. Pick my call oh God
That’s obscene money for someone who simply does what he does best, play football. He’s really good at it and, going by the money being thrown around in the sport lately, deserves to earn such.

Dream come true.

Then someone who turned out to be a very good medical student (another lifesaver among us) is rewarded with the whooping sum of N10,000?

Surely it won’t be the only prize she’ll get for her academic brilliance but that amount simply emphasises why many young people today would rather be a Neymar, or just ‘Skiboribo’, ‘Skekerobo ske’ and be a wicked producer than, I don’t know, study overnight to pass exams with a lamp because, NEPA, in an environment where we have lecturers who would fail you for no reason.

Humour me!

And that’s not even the best part. God help her if she ends up in a government hospital and she’ll be counting down when next her colleagues would go on strike.


N10,000 has never looked more glorious
Nigerian students go through too much already than to be getting rewarded with N10,000 in this economy – only God knows how much the bank will take as bank charge.

Also, maybe it’s not only in Nigeria that a group presenting an award or cash prize would go the lengths of printing a banner that would probably cost more than the award, but was it even necessary? No.

Maybe it’s the banner and not the amount that’s got my blood boiling, or it’s the thought of my nephew not being a good outfield player just yet.

I’m just pissed at it all!


When a Nigerian university offers you N10,000 as best graduating student, you do this!
And now, I’ve sent my in-law a text to remind her of our agreement to change my nephew’s position from goalkeeper. There are goals to be achieved and scored aplenty!

Nobody’s got time for paltry rewards anymore.
