"And back then those little girls were not wearing hijab, no noise, no upheaval. Those little girls there are women of virtue today, but in this unfortunate age that we make hijab an issue, we have millions of women of low moral standard. Who can save Nigeria from this madness?"

@Saheed825 said:

"That will be a kind of good memories. But please sir's, make sure you work on your past errors if any, to leave a nation wide good legacies. God help you all."

"Good one! But Sir, what about the two female teachers in the 'school-group' picture are they still alive?"

@peteregwuatu said:

"And no hijab for the females and all of a sudden, today, there is outcry. Anyway, hijab is just an Arabic tradition and not a religious one. That's why in picture you never saw anyone of the female folks putting it on."

Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that two friends showed that the best thing about friendship is helping each other to achieve mutual goals.

In a Twitter post on Tuesday, March 2, one of the friends with the handle @No4troublemaker shared a throwback photo of when they were students at the University of Benin (UNIBEN).

The second snap showed them in Munich, Germany several years later. What is obvious in both photographs was how their skins went from being dark to fair, making them look all fresh.
