@OIOlawale asked: “Where’s the Minister for Education in all of this?
What’s the rationale for shutting down the school?
After three days what next? Jesus will resurrect again?
Really wonder how our decision making works? Is it strategic, reactionary or just convenient?”

@terkxofficial stated: “@GovWike should just demolish that school for rn they’re distorting the master plan of Abuja. They should be shut down till further notice”

@tomileko commented: “They should start with expelling the bullies first before shutting down the school 🤦🏽‍♀️”
