After the photo of the University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN) Medical Students Association Best Graduating Student receiving N10k cash reward went viral, several online commenters have expressed displeasure on the poor reward for academic excellence as opposed to entertainment.
#Seyilaw shares his thoughts
@seyilaw1 - I saw this picture and read a lot of comments on it and I had a good laugh. We don't seem to realise that BBN is business that brings returns and profit to the organisers while Prize giving is just a CSR for the giving party which is not compulsory by any means.
We talk about how Educational events gets less sponsors and low reward prizes and we blame everybody but ourselves. May I ask when last we watched " Who wants to be a millionaire"? Oh ho!
If we are truly pained, let's develop an Education based entertainment show that can guaranty millions of viewership, following and bring in good returns and watch companies eat out of the palms of our hands until then, we will keep crying for nothing.
Abi, we think say the shareholders of the companies won't want to count profits and improved dividends? Abegi, make I continue with my snoring jor.
#BellaNaijarians let's hear your thoughts... N.B: The Bank whose logo appeared in the cheque has said that it didn't give the student the cash prize, saying the Medical Students Association just used its logo to create the dummy cheque.
