Margaret, stared endlessly at the sky counting the number of stars for the umpteenth time,she hissed as she checked her time, she realized she had been sitting for about four hours alone reflecting on how her life had been for the last four years, waited two years for admission, then corona virus compulsory holiday, some months strike again by her school because of some issues, then this incessant Asuu strike.

She thought about her mates from secondary school, some are already graduate or final year students in private universities, some have travelled to greener pastures(abroad), some are working and doing fine, running businesses and enjoying life but painfully she realized she had just been doing a little business with great focus on her academics, with little progress because of federal universities’ strikes upon strikes.

She felt cheated of life, what can i do she exclaimed? She looked up and down and tears raced down her eyes like downpours of rain. “Should I face my business,( they said school nah scam before!), quit school and do something else with my life(she lamented)______” No, No, No. Not too fast, does this describes you or somebody you know? Here’s five reasons why you should not quit schooling now.
