Ex-Head boy spotted doing POS work

Meanwhile, Fox Nigeria previously reported that a lady had mocked her former secondary school head boy after she spotted him doing POS work.

Mocking his hustle, the lady explained that she expected him to be doing better because he saw everyone back in secondary school as unserious people. She wondered how he ended up doing POS despite his sound use of the English language. She wrote in a TikTok video:

“Omo I see head boy for my secondary school back then. Weyrey think say I don forget him face. With all the English for school back then, so na POS you go do last last weyrey.”
