A Nigerian lecturer has shown that not all lecturers are unaccommodating as he could be seen in a viral video carrying his student's baby while the mum and other students receive lecture.
In the video that was shared by @instablog9ja on Instagram, the Western Delta University lecturer walked around the classroom as the lecture went on and the baby did not interrupt the flow.
He dictated a note to the students and the baby appeared to be enjoying the atmosphere.
Social media users were impressed with the lecturer's kind gesture and they soon flooded the comment section of the post.
"Awwnn ... that baby will not make one noise like this .."
"It pays to be kind. God bless him."
"Wooow. It actually doesn't cost much to be nice to people, kudos to him."
"This would have been me, if i was a lecturer, cos' i adore kids."
"The baby was crying i guess, if it was to be some other lecturers, they could send the mother and the child out of the class."
In a similar story, Briefly.co.za reported previously a photo has gone viral which showed a professor holding a baby while he taught.
It has since been revealed one of his students was the baby's dad. The young man could not get a babysitter for his daughter, so, he had to bring her to class. The professor offered to hold her so that he could focus on his work.
The KCPE exams kicked off on Monday, March 22, and several cases of pupils giving birth or sitting for the papers while expectant have been reported.
