Sickening Story of How School Bus Driver Tried To Kidnap Pupils In the Bus

If Nigerian parents will have to start sleeping with one eye open after putting kids in a school bus then na real wa! for Nigeria. What could be worse abeg? You See this life? While the dad was out there working selflessly for kids he didn't know, God sent Angels to watch over his own kids and help them. We should never be weary of doing good, never worry about the fact that you work selflessly and no one recognizes or acknowledges you, just remind yourself all the time, that God's reward is better and more preferable. When he wants to bless or help anyone, he doesn't need man's help to do that.
 A Nigerian lady, Anazodo Caroline shared this shocking story on her wall to save lives. She says:

'Two days ago, my nieces, the "Igwe girls", were picked from the house to school as usual. The school bus driver who has been driving for the school for 4 years, accompanied by a school teacher picked them and proceeded to the next location to pick other kids for school which is typical.'
On getting to the home of the other kids, the teacher had to go In to get the kids from their apartment (which I wonder why the bus was accompanied by just 1 teacher, leaving kids with the driver, but again, who knows the heart of man). 
Guess what? After the teacher left to bring the other kids to join my nieces to school, before she got back, the driver had sped off with my nieces already. The teacher came out with the other kids and the bus, driver and my little girls were no where to be found. 
He switched off his phone while the innocent girls had no idea what was going on. I mean, what do

The best way to prevent teen pregnancy is to educate them on the use of condoms.Telling the youth to abstain is a failed strategy, as they will have it anyway - Church Leader argued

A counselor and elder of the church of Pentecost, New Achimota District in Ghana, Mr Nii Armah Hammond, has admonished stakeholders to allow teenagers who can’t control their libido to be allowed to practice safe s*x.

The respectable church leader, was speaking on Ahotor fm during a program aimed at educating the youth.

Hammond believes that the best means of preventing teenage pregnancy and its associated complications is through protected s*x. As he puts it, the stigma associated with teenage pregnancy affect the family concern long after the act and in most cases making the products of such pregnancy liabilities for the nation.

Telling the youth to abstain is a failed strategy, as they will have it anyway, he argued, so the best way to prevent teen pregnancy is to educate them on the use of condoms.

*Hmmm, do you agree? 
For me, I can't imagine myself teaching my child how to practice safe sex or how to wear a condom. I know I taught the girls how to wear sanitary pads, demonstrated with underpants and some pads, also taught how to properly dispose used pads. I did that happily and
