Captioning the photo, Zlatan Ibile questioned the relevance of education which has raised various reactions from several sections of social media users.
“Wetin I gain if I go school I get certificate but I no fit use Am chop.”
Some social media users seemed to disagree with the rapper while others agreed with him.
One follower seemed to be against Zlatan’s point of view, responding with a tweet saying:
“A lot of people nowadays give little importance to education, they believe making money is more important than getting educated but that’s wrong. Education is will take u places wealth can’t take u, knowledge is power. A knowledgeable person is better than a rich illiterate.”
Another follower seemed to be supporting the rapper saying:
“Brother @Zlatan_Ibile with all modesty education is basically to get u civilized and equipped not necessarily to get u a job or bag you with money, but if you are lucky to get a good job after school still kudos, pls stop misleading ppl that skul is for money or necessarily 4 job.”
What are your honest opinions about education, especially in a country like Nigeria?
