A veteran lecturer and a Cross River State chieftain of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC)  in Nigeria has been awarded by the Students' Union Government of Cross River State College of Education Akamkpa, TDN can confirm. 

The award which was presented to the lecturer in a local beer joint by the SUG President was suppose to be an award of Excellence. 

According to pictures posted by the APC chieftain on Facebook, the recipient seems to be very pleased receiving the award in a local beer parlour.  

"Receiving award of excellence from the President, Comrade Awakang Awatt, Students Union Government, College of Education, Akamkpa, Cross River State." - Owa egbara Owa Esq.

A close source who pleaded anonymity disclosed that the veteran lecturer is one of the most respected lecturers of Cross River State College of Education Akamkpa.

This award of excellence given to a teacher by his student presupposes that the said teacher is a teacher par excellence, if this seems to be the case, why on earth should this be done in a local beer hurt by the SUG President Comrade Awakang Awatt alone?

 Where were other members of his executives? Was Comrade  Awatt  in a hurry to make some cool cash from the lecturer behind his comrades? Why was the award not presented in an official ceremony or in the lecturer's office or classroom which should be the best. 

Well TDN wants to believe that both the lecturer or the student's leader know why they choose to present/receive the award in a local beer joint. 

There's another question begging for answer which is, is this award really an award of excellence in lecturing or an award of Excellence in "downing" bottles of beer?
