Mixed Reactions As Lagos School Sends JSS2 Student Home For Having Peter Obi Sticker On Her Bag » Ngnews247
Epe, a student at Odomola Junior High School in Lagos state, was reportedly sent home after she came to school with a bag bearing a poster of Labor Party presidential candidate Peter Obi.
The JSS2 student, identified as Barinada Marvelous, was given the school leave form because she had violated an instruction allegedly issued to schools in the state by the Lagos state government.
This was revealed by an unnamed school source who shared a photo of the exit form.
The principal of Odomola Junior High School instructed Marvelous to go home and campaign for Obi because it was “against the wishes of the people of Lagos,” the newspaper reported.
The source stated; “Can you imagine the daughter of one of our members being sent out of school because she had a Peter Obi sticker on her bag and she was given a withdrawal form at Epe“
The actions of school administrators drew mixed reactions, with many saying sanctions should be imposed while others said it was wrong for students to bring political stickers to school.
@MargaretUfeli; It’s true, the signature is from the principal, I’m in Epe too, dad told me
@maaziakuchie; Lagos is losing its aura, and what makes it special. The Lagosians allowed the APC gang to give it a bad name.
@punditalasakasa; The decision is unacceptable, but the idea of that bag will cause a lot of distraction in the classroom.
@Temsdej; if this actually turns out to be true, we have a serious problem on our hands and it won’t end with this election
@oladayovincent; Ha, my generation..we just believe everything we see online, no due diligence..no one actually cares if it’s propaganda..why can’t we let someone School, find out and upgrade this thing on all platforms if it’s true
@RealChris_ng; Will that kid be safe after this?Just asking because anyone willing to do this to a child can’t be trusted with a child
@nkechi_first; it seems reasonable that students should avoid wearing or carrying items showing political affiliation at school. Where I live, football has a similar policy.Pupils are prohibited from wearing or bringing to school items representing football clubs
@AkunnaBrown; it’s so unnecessary…so sum1 can’t have a free and fair election
@Akdiamond4fcb; It is not right for a school to tear off a student’s sticker and expel the student. It is also irresponsible for parents to put any political party stickers on their middle school students’ schoolbags.
@BolanleA4; what kind of nonsense is this? @jidesanwoolu Your strategy to win the election will backfire. You threatened businessmen, teachers and civil servants to forcefully vote for APC. This intimidation must stop! If you do well in Lagos, people will vote for you.
