What is she on about,they were sent abroad because of the fall in level of education, now they are asked to return because their parents can't afford their school fees, so we should do what?
After studying abroad hope the parents already made provisions for their place of work, security, good roads and steady power supply by the time they are done studying abroad.
Our education system was left to rot by some of their parents.
An intelligent child is an intelligent child.
Most of them sent abroad to school have turned DJs, musicians, video vixen etc.

Are we not supposed to patronize made in Nigeria, or is education an exception? They should come back home and help in rejuvenating our dead educational system!!!

LMFAO. Please stfu if u have nothing better to say. Prolly cause you can't afford to go abroad that's why you are commenting nonesense. Nigerias educational system/ institutions are all mediocre please. A handful are very ok but better than abroad bro chill with ur patriotism ok?!

ode oshi said...

What is she on about - biko, bring dem back and lets tackle the rot in our educational system.....in fact, lets tackle the rot in our system PERIOD

Eddy Ogbunambala said...

Ok

Mecious said...

Exactly@Bonario. And what is she going on about only those that their kids were sent abroad. What about those ones here that this term, their kids couldn't afford to resume common 60k school. At least the ones abroad can come back to a so called local school. Please let me hear word.

She's got nothing important to say though.

BONARIO, I Love you!! The only brain on LIB, I always look out for your comment as you always vomit what I am thinking, Betty Irabor should be ashamed of herself for even thinking this is an issue, I am awed and ashamed on her behal, it's like her use of common sense is on a journey sharking hennessy and too drunk to be used by her brain. Parents wreck our school system embezzling money everywhere they are then send their children and wards abroad to study and now the system is trying to cut those frivolous excesses and a supposed mother and enlightened woman is complaining. Betty Irabor first begin to explain to our children here why they are suffering a dilapidated educational system before explaining to children to back home after all they say "Charity begin at home"

This is a blessing in disguise. It's an opportunity for us Nigerians to help improve our own. This applies to academics, the arts and sports within elementary, middle, high schools and colleges.

I attended secondary school in Nigeria ... that part of my life turned out to be a wonderful experience and one that I will always cherish. I yearned to study at Unilag but my father insisted on the UK. Fast forward: I took my adults sons from the USA on a tour to Unilag a few months ago, they were impressed with the students but complained about the infrastructure which they admitted was not that big of a deal since it's fixable. Now my sons have invested their time and special projects within Nigeria's educational sector.

It starts with us passing on good values to our children. We must pump money into our own economy and invest in our own sectors. Education is key.

The question is where do the parent getting the money to fund their children school fees before now, most of them were feeding on corruption, now the free money is no longer there to steal they are shouting. The truth is 60-90% of Nigerian are leaving beyond their means, send their children to expensive schools, have various exotic cars, stays in luxurious houses in highbrow area for the mighty, let us be true to ourself how many Nigerian are leaving according to their earnings.

Wat gives u the right to make dat comparism?have u gone abroad before,not to talk of comparing the skools.take back seat abeg.

Clearly ure not that "concerned" cuz if u were, u would know that's not true...it should be and in tge past was the case when we had people overseas coming to Nigeria to school in Ife, Ibadan and Nnamdi Azikwe but things have drastically changed for the worse...and the universities that are mrant to be promising also cost close to an arm and a foot.

Dear Ode, these are not tge first kids to come from avroad...This has been happeneing from time so this statement is quite useless..a well trained child should remain that way despite who they meet unless they are doomed to face the real world anyways

Thank God for this Recession. What is a 9 & 13 year old girls doing in London while their parents are in Nigeria. Thank God. The best gift any parent and especially mother can give to their child/children is the gift of their presence. Thank you LORD for Recession. Good reason is beginning to set in.

Now this is a matured point compared to earlier comments!

The reality has stared all of us on our faces that the era of free money is over. most of thes e parents relied on external (KURUKERE) fund outside their legitimate salaries and allowances to send their kids abroad. E DON SET NA, BREEZE DON BLOW FOUL KINIKO DON XPOSE

Recession could be a blessing in disguise at the long run. I pray that we may learn from it. You can sack your landlord by owning choice properties in Festac Town, Ibeju-lekki,Ikorodu,Sango-Otta etc at Affordable Prices. Contact Segun on 08052467442 for details.

Betty and Co are up in the air. People have to face REALITY. There is no money and not much business. Everyone-apart from Dangote & Otedola- tighten your belts and get real.

PARENTS WERE LIVING ABOVE THEIR MEANS IN THE FIRST PLACE.
CORRUPT MONEY.

I'm sure you don't even believe what you're saying. Very unintelligent

sholetoga said...

What's she saying exactly, Betty just speaking from both sides of the mouth. Betty herself said when she changed school, it was a blessing. So let the girls too come home and it's gonna be a blessing to them too. Why send 9 and 13 years old abroad to school, have school finished in Nigeria........Madam go inside your husband other room and sleep

Ashley said...

THIS isn't a very dumb comment. People work hard to send their children outside Nigeria to school. It was easier then because of the exchange rate at that point. But right now you have to pay fees at almost 3 times that amount. Will the parents then tell their bosses to increase their salaries x3? You need common sense.

That's what happens when you try to do big things on a small budget.
When the going was good or manageable they didn't cry out.
Oya come and face what less than average Nigerians are facing, and keep quiet.
