AASU (Academic Staff Union of Universities) in Nigeria are currently on strike which means their members are forbidden from lecturing but a lecturer at Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University (formerly Anambra State University) decided to do the extraordinary for his students.

He was reported to have told his postgraduate students who wanted to have a final discussion with him ahead of their project defence to expect the Spiderman to assist them and he did eventually but in Spiderman’s costume.

The lecturer reminds me of  Mamoudou Gassama, the hitherto Malian migrant who scaled a Paris building to the fourth floor to save a child dangling from the balcony, earlier in the year.

This Nigerian lecturer perhaps burnt four litres of fuel to be with his students.

Naija we rock!
