"Exactly 27 years after graduating from Suleiman Barau Primary School, Suleja, I went in search of my class 6 teacher, Mrs Emily Olowookere whom I last saw during the school prize-giving day on the 26th July 1995. Shockingly, my teacher recognised me after my pretense of not knowing her."
"Really surprised and at the same time, overjoyed that after 27 years, my primary 6 teacher still recognises me and of course, my name. This is a happy reunion. Will your primary school teacher recognise you after 27 years?"

In a separate chat, Moshood, who is an HND graduate from Kaduna Polytechnic, told that he is very happy that the teacher not only recognised him, but also called his name correctly. He said he appreciated her.
