Why schooling abroad is dangerous – Cleric

An Anglican cleric has identified the dangers in sending children abroad to study.
Ven. Festus Nwafili, the Chaplain to the Primate of All Nigeria Anglican Communion, Archbishop Nicholas Okoh, was delivering a sermon at a service to mark the 12th graduation ceremony of the Anglican Girls Grammar School, Apo District, Gudu Abuja.
He sounded a note of warning about students who are sent abroad for further studies, saying that they should be careful of countries that are struggling with three evils of secularism, sexual perversion and decay at a very high level.
According to him, the western countries think they don’t need God again because they have everything and are developed.
Ven. Nwafili pointed out that only the grace of God, faith in Him and a determination to succeed can push someone forward.
He reminded the students that the determination to succeed must be sustained, adding that those who fail to plan, plan to fail.
Drawing his text from Philippians 3:14, the cleric gave them the assurance that the future promises to be bright only if they can remain focused.
He called on parents to guide their daughters in making the right career choices prayerfully and without coercion.
The Primate’s Chaplain also warned them against keeping bad companies, pointing out that they are the ambassadors of the AGGS and their families.
