So the Federal ministry of education approved 5 years jail term for students who cheat in S.S.C.E? How many years did Farouk Lawan get? How many years did Ibori get in Nigeria considering over 100 charges brought against him? How many years did Bode George get? How many years did the subsidy thieves get including the son of the PDP chairman? How many years did the pensions thieves get? How many years did the bank thieves that contributed in crippling our economy get? Well it has always been the norm in our country that 'there are no consequences for criminal acts if you belong to the right group'.
Education has been the most neglected sector in this nation, the strike has made learning difficult. You cannot find a graduate that has not experienced strike up to three times or more before he or she graduate, most times they spent extra year as a result. L
ook at the condition of the classrooms, lack of libraries and equipment that can enhance learning, take a look at the teachers too, neglected!!! How can you deny students these things and still threaten to put them behind bars for cheating in exams, how then can they pass? I don't intend supporting any form of cheating but it's high time we stop making senseless laws in this country.
First it's child marriage, now its jail the kids, lets keep our fingers crossed and see whats coming next, if i may guess jail social network folks. The book of Lamentation was not written for Nigerians alone, yet we are the most lamenting humans on earth. This has to stop! We need to show these selfish ogahs at the top that we are no more the lame ducks they use to know.
