Senator Dino Melaye seems to have a solution to students failing courses in Nigerian universities and he has publicised his opinion on social media. In a recent post shared on his Instagram page, the senator opined that Nigerian universities should adopt the style of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in determining status of an examination.
Melaye stated that exams in which majority of the students fail should be considered inconclusive and a supplementary exam issued in 21 days. His suggestion is stemmed from the practice of INEC, where an election is declared inconclusive when the margin between the leading candidate is lower than the cancelled votes.
With his suggestion, Dino, has managed to spark debates on social media where people agree that it might be a good idea. However, some are of the opinion that such a practice already exists in some institutions, where staggering failure in a particular course questions the teaching method of the lecturer and sometimes leads to a supplementary examination being held.
Meanwhile, Professor Akin Oyebode said Nigeria should change its name to Republic of Songhai. Oyebode said the Green White Green does not symbolize anything progressive. The professor earlier called for constitutional and electoral reforms to accommodate electronic voting and transmission of results.
