What Were You Taught In School That You Later Learned Was Completely Untrue? by GreatResearcher: 4:31pm On Mar 04, 2019
My government teacher taught me that:

1. If you are a public office holder (governor/president), your wife is not expected to be pregnant throughout your stay in office.

2. You can't contest for public office while you are occupying a public office. You must resign first before being qualified to contest. For example if you are a president and wants to contest for second term you must resign first. You can't stay in the office and contest.

That if you dont know book you will never make it in life and you'll be a beggar



Businessideas:

Honestly, how many people have you seen to have made it in life,as in really made it o, without education? Even countries that don't have sound educational system have failed let alone individuals. Education is key.
Anyone who tells you that you can make it in life with education loves you. The failure of people to apply their education is their personal failure not that of the school.




Professor am not sure u sef know book. I didnt say if u dont go to school. School teaches alot not only book. Change ur way of reasoning abeg. U must have an education but that doesn't mean if youre not first tru out u wont make it. Understand me before u jump upandan.

I was taught that the citizens have the right to chose their leaders in a democratic government. In Nigeria the leaders impose themselves on us.

Hear the word of the Sovereign LORD o simple one:

Does a clay pot dare argue with its maker, a pot that is like all the others?
Does the clay ask the potter what he is doing?
Does the pot complain that its maker has no skill?--Isaiah 45:9

I have made everything; that's how it all came to be. I, the LORD, have spoken.--Isaiah 66:2
