I would like to draw our attention to some situations that can hike the spread of the COVID-19. The government is very wise to close down all schools and public gatherings. I could see that some parents who don’t have a modicum of respect for TEACHERS and are wiser than the GOVERNMENT have decided to go contrary to measures taken to contain the pandemic.
These parents have contracted some teachers to organize classes for their wards. In fact, right from our secondary schools to the basics, these classes are going on. We are made to understand that we put on the face mask when leaving home and talking to someone. I wonder how long these children can wear the face mask while sitting in our classrooms for hours.
Someone might say they will observe social distancing. Let’s not forget the funny behavior of students, how recalcitrant they can be. It’s difficult controlling them during these class times.
I humbly appeal to parents to make their wards stay at home and learn. Those teachers organizing the classes, please don’t put your life and others at stake because of small loose coins. Headmasters, headteachers, school administrators, and churches who have given their premises to be used for such should please give it a second thought.
As a matter of urgency, the MCE, MP, Security Service, and all stakeholders should take steps to stop the spread in such a situation. This pandemic will pass away and life will be more enjoyable.
STAY HOME, SAVE LIFE!
