A Nigerian lecturer who works at the University of Port Harcourt (Uniport) went the extra mile to prevent cheating in the attendance register of his classes.
In a video posted on TikTok by Port Harcourt Icons, the lecturer was seen using a fingerprint machine to take records of those present in his class and prevent petty fraud.
The TikTok video shows the lecturer walking around the class and presenting the scanner to the students to thumbprint.
UNIPORT lecturer attends class with a fingerprint scanner
The Uniport students did it willingly and even happily as the man patiently waited for each to go through the authentication process.
People who saw the video said the man did the right thing because mischievous students are known for writing the names of their friends absent from the class in the attendance register.
However, others insisted that some students might still find a way around the lecturer's innovative idea.
