Ufeli Margaret: The matter is real, the signature is that of the principal and am in Epe too, the father told me
proudly Nigerian: Is the student now a politician that she has to be carrying political stickers on her bag?
Happy: Read the form. They didn’t say campaigning is bad. They said campaigning for PO is “against the wishes of Lagosians”. They didn’t send her home because she had a sticker, they sent her home because it was Peter Obi’s sticker.
ItsOladeni: But seriously.. Campaigns are not allowed inside school sha.: But seriously.. Campaigns are not allowed inside school sha.
General flexible: Why did they not simply take out the sticker from the bag and tell the pupil formally that such is not allowed?
Their best solution was to send the pupil away. This is how you sow hate in the hearts of children for no reason whatsoever.
Nkechi First: It seems reasonable that students should avoid wearing or bringing items that display political affiliations at school. Where I live, a similar policy is in place regarding football. Students are prohibited from wearing or bringing items that represent football clubs to school.
Victor: What are you even saying??? Both apc and pdp have given schol material as a campaign gift and some student made use of it so have you heard any news of such act was done to any student??????
OBI ni ooo!: When I was a student in college, we had academic debates organised by our school on who is the better candidate amongst the Governorship contestants then in our State. This helped us – students to have social and political awareness.
