Principal Sent 10 Year Old Pupil Home For Using Peter Obi Poster To Wrap Her Books



A Junior Secondary School Student of Odomola Secondary School, Miss Marvellous Barinaadaa, and her parents got more than they expected on Tuesday, when the girl was sent home by the school principal for allegedly wrapping her books with the poster of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, Mr Peter Obi.

Her mother, who took to social media to lament the situation, appealed to Nigerians to come to the family’s rescue, saying the girl was apolitical and just 10 years old.

Part of the message sighted by our correspondent read: “This is to inform you all, that my daughter, Marvelous Barinaadaa, was exited from Odomola Secondary School today 14th March 2023, by the principal, just because my daughter used Peter Obi’s poster paper to wrap her notebook for school.

“And this girl is just ten years old.

“She didn’t know anything about politics, but she was sent away from school without informing the parents because they say we support Peter Obi and Labour Party.

“Please, is this act by the principal good? See what the school principal wrote in that letter. And after we will say we are one Nigeria.”

She also alleged that the family had suffered a lot because of their perceived support for Obi.

‘Not true’

However, the President of Odomola Secondary School Old Students Association, OSSOSA, Epe, Apagun Saka Shola, stated that the JSS2 student was sent home for allegedly causing nuisance and distraction through the distribution of posters of Obi in the classroom.

He noted that the move by the principal was to curtail the nuisance being caused by the student in sharing the posters with other students.

His words: “I have been able to reach the principal. The issue circulating is far from the truth.

“There is a directive to stop all forms of campaign in the classroom. As some political parties use the students to campaign in class.

“The principal did not expel or suspend the student. She sent her home for causing havoc and disturbance in the class during recess by chatting and sharing LP posters to her mates.

“Again, the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education is on the issue,” OSSOSA President said.

However, calls and text message sent to the contact purported to be that of the principal were neither acknowledged nor responded to at the time of filling this report.

Whitney Adeniran mum.

According to her, “a fellow parent, , told me that it was an accident that could happen anywhere and asked if I wanted money from the school.

She wrote to me, “May God console your family, but my question is, do you want the school to pay or for the school to be permanently closed?

“Then, consider other children in the school who have paid their fees. Are they supposed to be thrown out of school? We feel your pain, but we are not clear with your revenge. This could have happened anywhere.

“Others said I should allow their children to sit for their examinations. I have been bullied and trolled.”

Mrs Adeniran went on to say,
“I spent 16 hours during labour when I had my child. I collapsed, suffered and she couldn’t stay to enjoy all we are working for. They took my daughter away when she should have been with me. My child was already cooking, wearing my shoes. She fried two cartons of turkey during our December party. My daughter was responsible. I travelled for days and left her to take care of her siblings. She was the head girl when she was in Primary school,” she lamented.

Owing to the death of a pupil, the Lagos government ordered the closure of a Chrisland School.

As the deceased’s family persisted in scrutinizing the school, Blessing, the deceased’s mother, accused Chrisland of incompetence.

The school is currently shuttered while an investigation is conducted, according to Lagos education commissioner Fol asade Adefisayo.



“We also note the impact of this unfortunate event on family, friends, and acquaintance of Whitney and call for calm as we assure that no effort will be spared in investigating the incident”, the commissioner stated.

Due to proximity issues, the school claimed it chose to take Whitney to a health center rather than a hospital.
