 First Class graduate reveals how randy lecturers almost frustrated her

Miss Ebizi Eradiri

BAYELSA State-born female lawyer Miss Ebizi Eradiri, who graduated with first-class honours from the Niger Delta University

(NDU), Amassoma, and repeated same feat at the Nigerian Law School, has narrated how she was almost frustrated by randy lecturers in the university.

She spoke on Wednesday in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital, during a reception organised in her honour by the Sele Eradiri Foundation, in collaboration with other NGOs, and tagged ‘#Schoolnobescam.’

According to the young lawyer, but for prayers, hard work and dedication, she would not have attained the unprecedented feat of becoming the first female student to graduate from the NDU Faculty of Law with a First Class.

She said: “I would say it’s through prayers and how I kept myself. I was very conscious of my dressing, which enabled me to get the best dressed female student in the faculty the year I graduated. I didn’t wear skimpy things that would expose sensitive parts of my body.

“I felt that was the starting point for me not to even attract the wrong lecturers to myself. I would say it’s prayer because there was a time we had a borrowed course and a particular lecturer was trying to do something funny. When I sensed that in the first semester, I called home, told them what was happening and we prayed and prayed.

 “At some point, I related the matter to my HoD and she warned the lecturer. These are some of the challenges the girl-child is likely to face, but through prayers and escalating it to the appropriate quarters, I think they can scale through.”

Eradiri vowed to use her appointment as the New Face of the Bayelsa Girl-Child as a corporate mentorship platform to inculcate reading culture in young Bayelsans.

The audience urged the government to match words with action and fulfill its promise to sponsor Ebizi through her Master’s and Doctorate degrees in any university of her choice.

Convener of the Ebizi homecoming reception Ebiekure Eradiri said the #Smchoolnobescam tag was to change the narrative about the youths and raise a new generation of leaders through intellectual prowess.

“We want our youths to begin to see education as the real thing for development, using Ebizi as a role model,” he said.
