When is it meeting the parents of your boyfriend appropriate? I mean you don’t want to do it too soon. So, when is soon too soon? A lot of people fall in love and become a couple and it is in rare cases that the folks are either the cupids (the ones that introduced the couple). So, they’re there from the inception of the relationship. I have friends that their folks consider it an insult to bring a man into their house without him stating his intentions to the lady he’s dating. “My posy must not hear boyfriend. He wants me to bring fiance home” Tola says.
For other parents, they don’t mind being introduced to all the “boy friends” as long as they’re involved in their child’s lives. Ultimately, popsy and momsy will have to know about the romance, after all their blessings will be needed to reach the perfect climax to that union.
Funny enough, a lot of women believe that it depends on the traditional background of the guy in question. For example; The Igbo and Calabar guys will rather take their “final bus stop” to their parents than the flings or side chicks. But the Yoruba guys on the other hand do not mind taking all the babes (side chicks and all) to see the parents.
Stella 26 says “Its because the Igbo boys knows that once you show your mumsy the bride, it is straight to planning the wedding. And worst of all, the guys are gonna be the ones paying for the wedding“.
“Only when I am sure of the guy will I show him to my parents,” says Iye, 23.
Chuka, says; “I actually do not think there is a rule to this, I will introduce my girl to the family only when I’m sure I”ll marry her.”
What do you think about this? Let us know your opinion.
#EndSARS Protest: Sanwo-Olu Orders Closure Of Schools In Lagos
The Lagos State Government led by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has ordered the closure of public and private schools indefinitely in the state.
The closure of schools in Lagos was announced in a press statement on Monday by the state’s Head of Public Affairs, Ministry of Education, Kayode Abayomi.
The statement which was titled, ‘Lagos directs students to stay at home’, quoted Mrs. Folasade Adefisayo, the Commissioner for Education, as saying that the schools were shut down over “tension generated by the anti-SARS protests.”
This is coming at a time #EndSARS protests against police brutality and bad governance by Nigerian youths grounded academic activities in some schools in the state on Monday.
“A new date of resumption for all classes will be announced as soon as possible.”
NECO Shifts Exam Over #EndSARS Protest
The National Examination Council, NECO, has announced the rescheduled of one of the practical examinations supposed to hold in October till the next month.
This was contained in a statement made available to newsmen on Sunday, October 18, by the Head, Information and Public Relations Division for the Nigerian exam body, Mr. Azeez Sani.
He announced that the Paper I Computer Studies Practicals examination which was supposed to be taken on Monday, October 19 is now delayed till November 16, 2020.
Sani revealed that the postponement is a result of the ongoing #EndSARS protests across the country, particularly the blockage of movement of transport at the entrance gate into Benin City, the Edo state capital.
He noted further that the truck conveying NECO examination materials had left its take-off point two days earlier to deliver to some states but has been held up in the ‘blockage.
FG, ASUU Meeting Over IPPIS, UTAS End In Deadlock
The meeting between the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on Thursday ended in a deadlock.
Although some agreements were reached at the meeting, the meeting is set to reconvene on Wednesday, October 21, 2020, by 3.00 pm after the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting for ASUU to report back on the decision of its NEC.
In a bid to end the strike, the federal government agreed to release N30billion for payment of arrears of earned academic allowance to the university lecturers.
The communiqué issued at the end of the meeting revealed that the release of N20 billion funds for revitalisation of public universities will be payable by the end of January 2021.
On the issue of Earned Academic Allowances(EAA), which had accumulated to N40 billion since November 2019, the Accountant General of the Federation (AGF) made a commitment to release N30 billion on or before November 6, 2020.
He said the remaining N10 billion would be spread equally over the two tranches to be paid in May 2021 and February 2022, respectively.
The communiqué also revealed that ASUU agreed to take the offer to its members for consideration and revert by Wednesday, October 21, 2020.
The issue of the implementation of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) almost stalled the meeting as the federal government asked that IPPIS be allowed to operate in the interim until the test run on UTAS is concluded.
But ASUU insisted on payment of outstanding salaries on the old GIFMIS platform before full implementation of UTAS.
