A University of Ibadan lecturer (UI), Bisi Olawuyi, on Tuesday denied claims of giving out dollars to students after resumption.
The Arts lecturer disclosed this in a tweet on his verified Twitter page.
Olawuyi’s response followed the claim in a tweet that propagated his alleged gesture.
“One lecturer for art in University of Ibadan give 10 students who attended his first class 100 dollar each”, @peter_pentane wrote.

The tweet, which has gone viral and been published by blogs, attracted several reactions.
Some responders said they were interested in knowing how Olawuyi made money since universities’ teaching staff just called off its strike.
The lecturer in his reaction said; “My attention has been drawn to a tweet circulating that I gave $100 each to 10 students. This is not in any way true. Please kindly disregard.”
