OAP Azinge calls out Enugu school over HIV stigmatization
An Enugu School has been called out by OAP Azinge over an alleged HIV stigmatization, which she claimed the Enugu state Education board & P.P.S.M.B signed off.
A message painted on the walls of the Enugu school reads “Cultists are HIV positives, run away from them”. Calling out the school for an alleged HIV stigmatization, OAP Azinge wrote;
Who thought this was a good idea? I can’t believe that the Enugu state Education board & P.P.S.M.B signed off on this! “Cultists are HIV positives, run away from them”
This is a message painted on the walls of Day Secondary school, independence layout Enugu. What the hell?? In 2018. We are still teaching children to run from & stigmatize people who are living with HIV ? How can u compare a person living with a disease to a cultist? Do u realize that there could be children in that school who are HIV positive ? Is HIV a crime? So many things are wrong with the country but the worst thing is that we have people running our educational system that think these sort of messages are okay. There is a better way to sensitize children about the dangers of cultism, without degrading people living with HIV.
