Student forced to resit course for partaking in a beauty contest
A Twitter user “@__faves” who goes by the name “Favour”, who is also a student at AAUA has accused Adekunle Ajasin University Akungba-Akoko (AAUA), of allegedly making her resit a course which she had passed, because she participated in a beauty pageant.
Miss Favour, who made the allegations via series of tweets posted on the social media platform, said both the online results and her lecturer’s records showed that she had passed the course, but the department is insisting that she failed it.
She accused the university of double standards, saying the only reason she is being told to resit the course is because she had no influential person to speak up for her, and she will have to pay N80,000 on tuition for the resit.
Several students has experienced ordeals similar to hers in different higher institutions in Nigeria. Most cases are found to be between male lecturers and female students.
