In schools right now abroad, they are teaching kids on how to be homo, they are teaching them a lot of things on how to… you’re a man you can actually live like a girl and change the other side and become a girl from being a man. They’re teaching them a lot of things that I don’t want my son to learn and I don’t want my son to be, so it’s really a problem.”

“With all they are teaching them they are still making aeroplane and creating scientific Solutions to global problems but you wey them no teach bad thing wetin you do wey don make global impact. Wetin you invent, wetin you create? Abeg!!”
“Which abroad? Can she one school abroad the teach kids homosexuality? Your child definitely gonna be exposed to a lot of things( good & bad), and that’s why you build the foundation at home. As if homosexuality is not in Africa.”

“This is so true!!!!!! Your fears are valid, I can relate pls.”
“Aunty they don’t teach them that, it’s a choice!!!”
"This one is just plain ignorant. No one is teaching children abroad to be gays or les*bians. Rather, they're teaching them of the existence of gay people and teaching them to not be homophobic like y'all. With the way you're talking, the homophobia is so clear and that's what they're doing. They don't want the next generation to be homophobic like y'all are."
“Whether you take the child abroad or not,person wey be shim be shim. They no need go school to learn am. Home or abroad.”
