A Bayelsa State-born female lawyer, Miss Ebizi Eradiri, who graduated with first-class honours from the Niger Delta University, Amassoma, and repeated the same feat at the Nigerian Law School, has narrated how she was almost frustrated by some randy lecturers in the university


Miss Ebizi Eradi, a female lawyer from Bayelsa state who graduated from Niger Delta University, Amassoma with a first-class honors. The young lady who managed to repeat the same feat at the Nigerian Law School recounts how how she was almost frustrated from achieving such a feat by some of her lecturers in the university.

She revealed this on Wednesday during a reception organized in her honor by a Sele Eradiri Foundation and some other NGOs tagged ‘#Schoolnobescam.’

According to the lawyer, if not for hard work and dedication, it would have been possible to achieve the feat of being the first female student to graduate from her faculty with a First Class.



Commenting on how she overcame the challenge of lecturers frustrating female students, she said:

“l would say it’s through prayers. Secondly, l would say it’s the way l kept myself.

“I was very conscious of my dressing, which enabled me to get the best dressed female student in the Faculty of Law, NDU, in the year l was graduating. I made sure I didn’t wear skimpy things that would expose sensitive parts of my body.

“I felt that was the starting point for me not to even attract the wrong lecturers to myself. I would say its prayer because there was a time when we had a borrowed course and a particular lecturer was trying to do something funny.

“When I sensed it from that particular lecturer in the first semester, l had to call home and told them what was going on and we all prayed and prayed.

“At some point, l had to escalate the issue to my HOD and told her what the lecturer was doing and she had to call him and warned him. These are some of the challenges the girl child is likely to face but through prayers and escalating it to the appropriate quarters, l think they can scale through that.”

She further revealed that her lowest grade during her university days was a “C” which was given to her by malicious lecturer who she she refused to sleep with. ‘l knew what I wrote but he gave me a ‘C’. I know what I mean.”

Eradiri has promised to use her appointment as the New Face of the Bayelsa Girl Child by Governor Douye Diri as a corporate mentorship platform to imbibe reading culture in young Bayelsans.

However, members of the audience at the reception called on the state government to live up to  the promise made by the governor to sponsor Ebizi Eradiri through her Masters and Doctorate degrees in any university of her choice in the world.

Also speaking, the Convener of the Ebizi homecoming reception, Dr. Ebiekure Eradiri, stated the purpose of the ‘#Schoolnobescam’ tag was to initiate the change of the current narrative about the youths and raise new generational leaders through intellectual prowess.

“We want our youths to begin to see education as the real thing for development, using Ebizi as a role model,” he added.

Recall that Governor Douye Diri had on Monday announced automatic scholarship to Eradiri for her master’s and a doctorate degree in any university in Nigeria or abroad.

Asides the automatic scholarship promised by the governor, he also offered the double first-class law graduate automatic employment to lecture at the NDU Faculty of Law.
