I will ban ponmo and parents from writing homework for their children when I become president – Ebuka Obi-Uchendu
Media personality and former housemate of Big Brother Naija, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu has revealed what he will do when he becomes President of Nigeria.
The father-of-two took to his Twitter page to talk about his next line of action as Nigeria’s president, should it ever come to pass.
“I must make it illegal for parents to help their children with homework when I become president. Let me rest. Right after I ban the ponmo. He wrote.
His tweet received several replies from his followers who agreed with him that parents help their children with their homework.
“Why do they have to give homework when the lesson has been taught in school? Why exactly do we pay teachers, isn’t it to teach them, why the change in responsibility?, @PaulShedrack.

Education is a student-teacher-parent affair. How would you contribute to your child’s learning if you don’t know what he has learned? »
