Nigerian University Dumps Hundreds of Students’ Projects In The Trash
This viral photo seen above has caused quite a stir online. The photo shows a collection of ‘Final Year University projects’ being dumped inside a rubbish bin.
The photo was shared on Facebook by one Dr Raphael James, who was furious with the unnamed institution that had the nerve to discard academic works of research in such a horrible manner.
Although the particular school to have done this is not known yet, social media users have joined James in slamming it for the act.
Below is what James wrote on Facebook.
He wrote: “In your final year in the university it is compulsory you write a ‘final year project’ which is a test of your ability to do research.
“You are to formulate hypothesis, review related literatures, sometimes you do interviews, surveys and other research techniques, which may include both present and historical information.
“The result of your research work can be used for further research works either to support it or to disagree with it. Most university undergraduates today, don’t even bother to do a proper research work , they copy from old projects and change the identity of the owners. That is by the way.
“Look at this photo, posted by Franklin Okechukwu Onwubiko. For a university, an academic institution to throw away the project findings of her finale year students, this is the end of education in Nigeria.
“Why go to school, why do research if it will not be used to benefit the society?
“I am appealing pls any university that wants to throw away things like this should donate it to CRIMMD Library, we will be glad to keep the rubbi
