A young man with the Twitter handle @Mahmoud_Damisi has shared a video of agric economics students of the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB) celebrating their lecturer's birthday.
During a lecture, the students burst into songs as the man stood in the aisle with a smiling face, amazed by what was going on.
With unmatchable energy, the students sang and clapped, saying: "May the good Lord bless you."
The amused lecturer kept looking at his wristwatch, perhaps a marker that he was shy or just checking time for his next class.
@Mahmoud_Damisi said the video is really a wonderful thing to see.
