Ishicheli Kenechi, a graduate of the Delta State University (DELSU), has attracted a plethora of mixed reactions on social media after she made a beaded face mask.
As the world continues to grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic, multiple measures have been taken to contain the spread of the virus, including lockdowns and sanitary practices like wearing masks.
Alongside hand sanitizers, it is widely known that the practice of wearing a face mask is to prevent a healthy person from inhaling the pathogens that may cause them to become infected.
Kenechi, who is said to have graduated from DELSU with first-class honours in anatomy, however, got many talking on Twitter after she made a facemask which she said was meant to help fight the coronavirus while enabling users to breathe comfortably.
While a segment of netizens hailed the creativity behind her craft, others faulted it from the perspective of science, pointing how inconsequential it is in preventing one from inhaling the virus.
“A first-class anatomy graduate making face masks with beads to help people breathe better is innovative. It’s not easy for someone to come up with an amazing idea like that,” a user wrote.
“Her school deserves to be fined for giving an unintelligent anatomy student like her a final clearance, though.”
“If that’s how a first-class graduate of anatomy views this situation, what would be the state of mind of the third class?,” another user asked.
“NUC (Nigerian Universities Commission) is supposed to close down her university.”
“First class graduate of anatomy thinks wearing facemasks in an epidemic is a fashion statement. -She stood with no shame, smiling as they took her pictures.”
Here is what some Nigerians had to say:
First Class Anatomy? More reason why HR prefer a 2.1 or 2.2 or even pass for a Job. Cos First Class students think inside the Box instead of Outside..
Note: not all.. 🤨 https://t.co/y0ChG5kFKQ

First class? Anatomy?
What they are teaching in Delta State University has to be investigated. https://t.co/prYdZnL0Ym

1. Studied Anatomy: at least sometime in university she learnt about how small microbes are. I don't think she paid attention
2. This is innovative if you are looking to make a fashion statement, if you want to protection this is as useless as using toilet paper as bulletproof https://t.co/3FQyCLVI4S

A First Class ANATOMY graduate making face masks with beads to help people breathe better is innovative. It’s not easy for someone to come up with an amazing idea like that tbh, even though her schl deserves to be fined for giving an unintelligent anatomy student like her a FC.

FIRST CLASS Graduate of anatomy cannot fully grasped the concept of face masks in these period, instead of her to explain to people how to wear the masks correctly and ease discomfort, she’s making beaded masks.
Our educational system is more messed up than we thought.

This is a first class Student of Anatomy from Delta State University and she "invented" a mask made with beads to protect one from Coronavirus.
This simply proves that it is possible to cram and have 100% without understanding how to apply your academic knowledge in real life. pic.twitter.com/x3lL5o4iV5

What bothers me the most is not the useless face mask but the fact that she has first class. Like how ????

they put her degree, to know how well she performed. they put her university name, to know where she comes from. they put her name and pictures, the face of the clown & then slot in “isn’t this innovative?”
don’t know why some of you are dragging the page sha but i read sarcasm.
