INSIDE AOCOED: I am teaching my lecturer’s son against his will

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Mr Alaka Michael Oluwasegun is a lecturer in the Department of Integrated Science in Adeniran Ogunsanya College of Education and I love him very well. He used to tell us (jokingly) that our generation will not teach his children but today I am teaching one of his son.

This is narrated by Oliver Obu. Oliver is a 300 – level student in Adeniran Ogunsanya College of Education in the Department of Chemistry and Integrated Education. Oliver is presently undergoing a compulsory teaching practice exercise in AOCOED Staff School where he met Alaka Oluwafemi Ezekiel one of his lecturer’s son. He is in primary four.

In a WhatsApp group, he posted: “I am here today teaching Mr Alaka’s son who used to say I can never teach his children. But now, in my teaching practice exercise school, I am here teaching one of his sons. It is really wonderful.

Mr Alaka is his lecturer in the Department of Integrated Science even up to this moment that Oliver is doing his teaching practice exercise.

According to the Student Teacher, Mr Alaka would always say to us in the class that we can never teach his children anytime he asks a question and nobody seems to know it or bold enough to say it. The beautiful thing about it is that Oliver started teaching his children while he is still under him.

Indeed, the incident is a clear picture of what an American singer and songwriter Justin Timberlake said in his song titled: what goes around… comes around! Truly, what goes around; comes around is a parable one can’t understand except with a practical step or a real-life situation.
