Realities of the life we go through in #Lagos. the parents have to get to work in time therefore they must do school runs earlier that usual, and get on the road to beat traffic. Aside from Lagos and may be #Abuja i don’t think this is the case in other parts of #Nigeria

Lagosians are wired differently, specially and ruggedly.
That is why they always lead wherever they find themselves.

All this working class parents won’t allow their kids get enough rest. Imagine going to school by 5.30 and the school closes by 3pm or 4pm that’s if there is an extra lesson. Parents should look for a school close by fir their kids. They are too young to be stressed this way.


  1. My kids wake up at 5am to get ready for school because the school bus pick them up by 6.30am which Everytime I woke them I feel sorry for them but the solution to this problem is for government to shift the resumption time further up to 9 or 10am.
