Nigerians on social media have criticised the ₦100,000 prize awarded Lawal Oluwafemi, the Best Graduating Student of the Obafemi Awolowo University for the 2017/2018 session.

Lawal was presented with his prize at the convocation of the university. He shared the news on Twitter on Saturday and users of the platform have been congratulating him.

Besides congratulating Lawal, Twitter users have also pointed out that the prize money was too small.

Critics of the prize money weighed Lawal’s prize against the N30 million that the winner of the last Big Brother Naija reality TV show went home with.
