Ojukwu Varsity Students Receive Fowl, Yam, Catfish And Paw Paw As Prizes by massmediang: 10:49am On Nov 23, 2017
Students of Department of Mass Communication, Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University (COOU) have received Agricultural products as prizes for emerging tops in a competition organized by their lecturer.

The students who emerged best in various categories were given live fowl, cat fish, paw paw and yam tubers, together with their certificates after they were selected as winners in the competition.

The competition was organized by their lecturer, Dr. Chinenye Nwabueze, together with massmediang.com and partners for 300 level students taken his course in Magazine and Newspaper management and production.
The competition which spanned three months had three categories – best student blogger, best in newspaper production, and best in magazine cover design. Every student in the class participated in the competition but the students thought it was simply a class work, not knowing that the results of the practical exercise will be given to external assessors to pick out the best.

At the end of the assessment, Judith Muoneke emerged Over-all best Student blogger because she was the most active among all bloggers. She received a live fowl and paw paw. Next was Immaculata Nweke who shared the first position with Judith, because she created the best blog (paragongistng.com). Immaculata left with a live fowl and paw paw. Next was Onyinye Nwankwo who took the second position in this category, also received a live fowl. She was followed by Onyinye Emenajo who left with a catfish for taken the third position. Others who received consolation prizes of one yam tuber each, in this category are Bob-manuel Nnebulu, Chetachi Anwuka, Joseph Agu, Chikodiri Nnadozie, and Chiemena Alia.

Dr. Nwabueze said in an interview that it is always good to honour and celebrate students when they do something outstanding, adding that this will inspire others to work hard. On why Agricultural products such as live fowl, paw paw, catfish, and yam were used as prizes in an academic exercise, Nwabueze insisted that the best way for Nigeria to get serious with Agriculture is to ensure that every award is agricultural product. According to him; “If someone wins Miss Nigeria, instead of buying the person a car, give her a ‘mighty’ fish pond which can even fetch her 10 cars within a shot while if the business is well managed.”
