Nigerian singer and songwriter, Simi is bewildered at the need for a formal education when it’s not usually put to use.
The new mom took to Instagram to ask why getting a formal education is still important when people mostly forget what they were taught in school and “end up doing something else with their lives.”
According to her, the “educational system is so sh**.” She added that people have “potential and talent” but do not tap them because they spend many years in school learning something they don’t care about.
”What’s the point then? Who did this to us?” she added.
Meanwhile, as the ongoing West African Senior School Certificate Examination progresses across West Africa, there are reports that some public secondary schools in Imo State are charging students N2,000 per subject to provide them with answers to questions.
The school owners met with students before the commencement of the examination where they informed them that they would provide the answers if each student paid N2,000 per subject.
According to Sahara Reporters, relative of the students, who spoke to newsmen, said the schools claimed that majority of the students might fail because of the Coronavirus lockdown and unpreparedness for the examination.
