Popular Nigerian singer, Harrison Tare Okiri, better known by his stage name Harrysong, has taken to social media to talk about how education is being neglected by the youth and the influence it has in the society.
In a post which he shared via his official Instagram page, he made a controversial statement to further prove his point and cited an example with youth who neglected education due to being nonchalant and end up being at the mercy of societal vices.
Harrysong continued by saying that people like that who refused to go to school are the reason politicians always find hoodlums to carry out their unlawful acts during elections.
In his words in pidgin: “Dem tell Emeka make him go school, him say pencil float. Nai make governor see hoodlum use thief ballot box for election day.”
