See what this private school in Ondo did
According to a Twitter user, in a series of tweets, the school Great Connerstone International Science College tasked parents of the 2017/2018 graduating class ₦5000 each for a plasma TV parting gift.
A particular page in the school’s magazine shows names of students who paid the fee around an image of a plasma TV with the amount they paid while names of defaulters’ were written underneath.
Many people who commented on the tweet accused the school of extortion and entitlement, like these children’s parents have managed to pay their tuition and other fees in full, why do you choose to ridicule them like that because of ₦5000?
Why is President Buhari meeting with APC governors so often?
According to reports, for the second time in less than a week, Bubu met with APC governors of Lagos, Imo, Bauchi, Kano and Borno states at the State House in Abuja.
Imo state Governor Rochas Okorocha reportedly said the meeting was held to proffer solutions to some of the party’s problems. Many Nigerians, however, believe that the president is mostly scared of losing next year’s presidential elections to PDP’s Atiku Abubakar. What do you think?
Prank gone wrong
There’s this particular video of a guy pretending to see a scorpion walking up a lady’s shirt that has been making rounds on social media.
In the video, while filming the scene, the guy, UbaniZion known for playing pranks on people walks up to an unsuspecting lady and tells her she has a scorpion on her body. The fear of the scorpion led her to taking off her shirt. According to the prankster, the lady, realising it was a prank reported him to the police and he was arrested.
I’d say he had it coming, because there was nothing funny about the video.
