  1. That's the way it should be. My nieces have stopped going to school too. Though their school is still in session but we had to do what we had to do when we realised even their proprietor hasn't been to school since February.

    1. Good,but for some of us who work,where do we keep our kids?

    2. This is a Funny question. They pay their kids school fees so obviously they also work too. They probably have househelps that their kids stays with while they go to work.

    3. Anon 19:26 there are 365 days in a year. Your children don't go to school round the clock do they? They have midterm breaks sometimes three months long holiday around June till September. Please during that time where do you keep them or do you go on leave from work the moment your children are on holiday?

      Stop hiding under the excuse of work and admit you don't see anything wrong with the situation and that's why your children are still in school. Not that anyone is forcing you or blaming you for your decision but stop feeling inadequate as a parent and looking for cheap excuses up and down. Her family is doing what is best for them so you too do what is best for you and stop asking childish question.

  2. Lol...those people hate school hen... fast fast shut down school. North West lohun lohun...🤣🤣🤣🤣. Even Lagos state that is a port of entry has not so quickly shut down education. Have the north west shut down mosques? That's the one the will be last to do.

  3. Good development,we nee to stay safe

  4. And the world gradually shuts down.

  5. And the End has actually come, next is the TRUMPET and rapture. Turn to Jesus and be save.

  6. Gradually everywhere is shutting down ooooo.......Lord have mercy
