Although President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration has kept millions of children at home to allow for voter registration in schools, the president’s two children and those of other affluent citizens are attending school uninterrupted. The elite school these children attend, the American International School, Abuja, is in full session. The Federal Ministry of Education had on January 6, ordered all schools to postpone their resumption date until February 4. The American International School, Abuja - which counts among its pupils and students children of prominent senators, ministers, governors, and even the president - resumed on January 10 and has remained open ever since, running a normal school programme.
A reliable source at the school confirmed that the school, which runs an American system of education, is attended by the children of high-ranking government officials and politicians, many of whom are active members of its Parent-Teacher Association.
According to the source, who is a staff member of the school, “This is an American school but I don’t think it is enough reason for them to disobey a government order. I see it as an embarrassment. Maybe it is because all the teachers are foreign and they are sure that the school will not be used for voter registration.
“The school fees range from between N600,000 to N4 million, and no parent will pay that much and see their children at home during [a] normal school session for any reason. National Assembly members, ministers and even the president’s children are here. The two of the president’s children are in primary school in this school.”

I don't blame these people but i blame and will continue to blame the masses that always accept all these rubbish from these people. E.g. 'Jumbo pay' while to pay #18,000 minimum wage is a big problem to them' is not a problem to nigerians, 'bad road network all-over the country while these people fly' it's ok with nigerians, 'poor man has no money to buy malaria medicine & no good hospitals in the country but if these people feel head-ace they will fly abroad for treatment ect. since we don't know how to say NO with simple non-violent protest, things like these will not cease to happen
