Don’t Encourage Bullies, They Are Perverts, Sanwo-Olu Counsels Pupils…As Governor commissions New Classroom Blocks, 182-Bed Dormitory In Lagos Model College

By Ezra Odogu

At the commissioning of four newly delivered school infrastructure projects in Lagos State Model College in Igbokuta, Ikorodu division, on Friday, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu spared time to engage in a heart-to-heart talk with pupils on bullying.

The Governor frowned at any action taken up by pupils to become overbearing on their mates and anyone partaking in organised intimidation of students. He described bullying as “perversive culture” alien to the virtue of education.

Sanwo-Olu told the pupils that bullying must not be seen as a sign of courage, but antics of physical weakness, urging them to immediately report anyone intimidating them.

He said: “The choice of school projects we are delivering is to raise the standards of our schools and ensure that you pupils learn under the most conducive environment. You must be well behaved, if there is any unusual event, don’t be afraid to say it out. We will not allow bullying in our schools.

“Pupils in the senior classes will not be allowed to bully their mates in junior classes. Senior pupils are meant to support and encourage their junior ones. We do not want to have pupils that will be condoning bullying and cultism in their schools. Anyone of you who is a bully or member of a secret cult group must renounce and stay away from the act.

“I encourage you to say something if you see something. We are determined to eradicate bullying and ensure there is harmony in all our schools. I want you to be supportive of one another. It is only when you support yourselves that you will grow to become great students, individuals and great citizens of this nation.”
