Lecturer teaching

 

Lecturing in Nigeria is a dream comes true for so many Nigerians. I really so much find so many predilections in the lecturing career in Nigeria because of so many reasons. The first of all my reasons for my sincere passion for the lecturing career in Nigeria is that no matter what I read in the university, I can always become a lecturer in any of university in Nigeria.  

Another reason I love the lecturing career in Nigeria is that lecturers are not stressed much like another profession in practice. Do not get me wrong; the lecturing job can be pretty stressful especially when there is no passion. There is nothing like over-monitoring of the activities of lecturers in Nigeria; I believe this is one reason why so why so many lecturers have been found in the practice of several disgusting indecorous acts.
