"It pays to be kind. God bless him."
"Wooow. It actually doesn't cost much to be nice to people, kudos to him."
"This would have been me, if i was a lecturer, cos' i adore kids."

A lecturer at the University of Calabar identified as Frederick Bassey was celebrated on social media for assisting one of his students, who is a mother of twins. The lecturer helped his student babysit her twins.
According to Bassey, who talked about the experience on Twitter, the student was writing a statistics exam and he knew she would need help looking after her twins while she wrote the exam.
Bassey explained that he decided to babysit for her so she could properly write her exam. He said he knew it would be stressful to write her exam and babysit.
