Throwback This is what a bad day looks like in Nigerian secondary schools

On a bad day, cane and punishment fall on students in Nigerian secondary school.

  • Published: , Refreshed:

Secondary school life in Nigeria back in the days was full of fun and antics.

But on a bad day, you blame your parents for sending you to school.

If you are not having a bad day, this will remind you of a day you wanted to go to school to have fun but it turns out to be the day you reference as your most embarrassing moment in secondary school.

It's a Monday Morning.

You came late on a Monday morning and you know what awaits you at the school gate. Cane and Punishment. But because you are used to being flogged for late coming, you just bounce off to your classroom.

In the Classroom

You entered the classroom to play with your friends  a little before the Mathematics teacher enters. You were expecting him to just teach and go, but when he came he said "open your General Mathematics Textbook to page 101 and do exercise 5d No. 1-76".


The bad day started

You opened the textbook to see the exercise and you wonder why the teacher wants only you to solve all these questions in 10 minutes. Confusion fall on you.

What a relief!

 The Maths teacher later changed his mind and asked the class to submit their work on Friday.

Not knowing your teacher has another plan. Suddenly, he calls you to explain the three ways to solve simultaneous equations, but you don't know the answer.

Here's how to survive the heat wave in Nigeria play


(Party Jollof)

And instead of you to be honest, you wanted to try to impress your friends. But the moment you dropped your rubbish answers, your friends who think you know it were like:

The teacher got angry that you don't know the topic he taught you for three weeks.

You just disgraced yourself and was uncomfortable throughout that day. Before now you used to go home like this.

But this particular day, you were the first to go home. And your friends were looking for you.

What is your most embarrassing moment in secondary school?
