ASUU Strike: Lecturer disguises as Spiderman To Attend To Students (Photo)

A lecturer in one the Universities in the Southeast ‘transformed’ into Spiderman to attend to his students.


The unnamed lecturer was spotted on Wednesday morning walking into his office in Spiderman costume.

It was gathered that some non-teaching staff present when the incident happened, were stunned to see a man dressed in Spiderman costume walking into the office complex. As they greeted the lecturer and called him his name, he ignored every greeting, pretending not to know anyone since he was not ‘human’. He opened his door, walked in and sat down, waiting for students whom he had told to await the arrival of ‘Spiderman’ to assist them.


It was revealed that the unnamed lecturer had told some students he was a strong member of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) currently on nationwide strike for the past one month.

According to sources, some of his M.Sc. students wanted to see him to have a final discussion with him before their Dissertation defence which would come up immediately after the ASUU strike was called off so they wanted to get ready before then since ASUU was having serious discussions with the Federal Government and the strike may end anytime.


In order not to break ASUU directives which required lecturers to stay away from academic work while the strike was on, the lecturer decided to ‘transform’ into spiderman, probably on a rescue mission, so he could attend to the students with his disguised alter ego and not the lecturer everybody knew

It was also gathered that though the unnamed lecturer ‘was’ spiderman, some students were positioned to lookout for ASUU strike compliance monitoring team in case they headed the lecturer’s way.

4 Ways Buhari responded to those who call him Jubril from Sudan

There have been rumours bordering on the identity of Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari.

Some members of the Nigerian public actually believe that Buhari died during one of his medical trips to London and was replaced by a clone called Jubril from Sudan.
Pulse weighed in on the rumours a week ago, the AFP did a fact check and the presidency was forced to react to what had become widespread and maintsream.

On Sunday, December 2, 2018,

President Buhari responded to the rumours during an interactive session with the Nigerian community in Krakow, Poland, where he is attending the 24th session of the Conference of the Parties (#COP24) which is under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (#UNFCCC).

Here are 4 ways Buhari dealt with stories that he has been cloned and replaced with a lookalike....

1. People who spread the rumours are ignorant

According to Buhari, it is ignorant and satanic to say he is a clone from Sudan or anywhere else for that matter.
"A lot of people hoped that I died during my ill health. Those who spread the rumour are ignorant and irreligious", the president said.

2. Buhari says he was not surprised by what the tale bearers were able to come up with
“One of the questions that came up today in my meeting with Nigerians in Poland was on the issue of whether I‘ve been cloned or not.
 “The ignorant rumours are not surprising  when I was away on medical vacation last year a lot of people hoped I was dead", he said.

3. Some politicians were already fighting over  how to become Osinbajo’s vice president, believing that Buhari was dead
There was already a power play among the political class over who should be Osinbajo’s vice president.
In other words, the lobbying for the VP position was intense.

Buhari said; “Poor Prof Osinbajo (his deputy). Even he had to deal with the rumours. Some people reached out to him to consider them to be his vice president because they assumed I was dead. That embarrassed him a lot; we discussed it when he visited me while I was convalescing”.

4. Buhari says he’s going strong and he’ll be around for a while
In the president’s words: “I can assure you all that this is the real me. Later this month I will celebrate my 76th birthday. And I’m still going strong!”
So yeah, there you have it.
