Nigerian university education has become known for being very tasking that only the fittest have been said to survive with good grades.
Some lecturers in the country have built a reputation for failing students indiscriminately even if they are deserving of better marks.
In some schools, some teachers have even put it in the minds of students that the A grade is for God and the B grade is for them, meaning that their students cannot get above the C grade.
Well, the University of Lagos recently held their convocation ceremony and 300 students graduated with a 1st class.
This good news did not sit too well with one Nigerian lecturer, Sam Amadi, and he aired his grievances on social media.

According to Sam, the Nigerian education system has become a mess and he is sure that the 300 first class graduates cannot defend their results.
He tweeted: “I am a university teacher and I am watching on TV as Unilag graduates 300 first class graduate. Horrible. I can swear that these graduates cannot justify first class. Nigerian university education has become sh*t.”
Interestingly, Amadi's opinion has raised various reactions on social media. Some people agreed with him while others felt he is an example of a bad Nigerian lecturer. See some comments to his tweet below:
Hmm...This is an interesting debate.
In other news, Legit.ng reported that a Nigerian man, Ogbeni Dipo, revealed on social media how he failed woefully in a Nigerian university but graduated with first class in UK.
He added that it is not as if his brain was dead but that the condition of things in Nigeria made education hard.
Dipo explained that a student who graduates with a 2:2 or 3rd class from a Nigerian university has the potential of doing better in a foreign school because no lecturer is proud to make students fail over there.
