Radio host and CEO of BlackPride Entertainment, Haruna Babangida has expressed not to defend the kids for insulting the president. However, he blames the politicians for taking politics to the doorsteps of these innocent ones.
A few days ago, some second cycle institutions came out from the examination hall and went into a rage as some were even damaging public properties. Their reason was the questions were so tough, and there was a tensioned atmosphere due to tightened invigilation. Their rage wasn’t limited to destruction of public properties but also insults towards the president of the nation, H.E. President Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo.
For days, the incident has been the headlining topics in media houses. However, the YFm radio broadcaster, Haruna Babaginda blames the politicians for the outburst.
“I’ll dare not defend students/kids/whoever insulting the president. We can’t afford to encourage that, but I hope you recall the concerns of some of us when they took the politics to the kids?”
During the time coronavirus seemed to go down, though still unsafe, final year students were freed to go back to campus to sit their final exams. This didn’t go well with a lot of people. But the directive stood and was carried out.
Sadly, parents were even restricted from seeing their kids at their various schools out of fear of coronavirus infection. And yet, the media saw whole EC officials trooping into the schools to register them Voter ID cards. Also, a politician was spotted holding a campaign. Thus, Nana B, as he is affectionately called in one of the schools.
Babangida again shared “Too much power in the hands of politicians. These poor students have no business in school in such trying times. Even adults have problems adhering to the protocols, how much more kids?”
Consequently, the virus started affecting them in numbers. Some lost their lives but there were reports that they were not taken by the evil coronavirus.
In some way, Haruna Babangida believes the kids now understand how these politicians are meddling with their lives and education with their gimmicks. Yes, a lot of people believe reforms in our educational sector are politically motivated.
Unfortunately, if the kids should also express themselves politically because they are dealt with politically, the only language they express themselves is vulgarity. After all, that has been the political language lately, indoctrinated by our ‘honourable’ men when they sit on the media to defend their parties.
“One of the repercussions of our style of politics is what we are seeing. The politics we took to the schools,” Haruna Babangida stated, “The earlier we deal with the political nuisance the better.” He concluded.

The earlier we deal with the political nuisance the better.
