Nollywood actress Mercy Johnson is not happy after a teacher used mean words towards her 8-year-old daughter. Ranting on her verified Instagram handle the actress wrote, “Since when is it a crime to be Mercy Johnson-Okojie’s daughter? Before I consider myself a public figure, I am FIRST a WIFE and a MOTHER to my four kids, that is my priority in this life, and nobody can make my child feel less than who she is because her mother is a public figure”.
The post continues to read, “I do not honestly care if someone does not like me, I do not expect everyone to, but to take your hate out on my child? Unacceptable! A teacher at my child’s school has been bullying my daughter constantly for 2 whole weeks. She is not her class teacher, yet she shows up at her class every day to intimidate her! Uses biros to flick her hair. She tells her to her face that she does not like her mother, tells her that celebrity kids are badly behaved and she should not bring her ‘aura’, she should stop feeling proud, she should not bring online drama to school. An 8-year-old! Purity that used to love going to school is terrified of going to her new school because of this teacher. Purity would greet her; she would not respond. Purity would report this to me every day; honestly, I thought she might be worrying too much”.
Purity was recently transferred to a new school because of distance problems. Her mother reports to have recently noted a change in her daughter who no longer loves school as she used to. Mercy Johnson has already reported the incident to the school authorities and has promised to take further action against the teacher.
“What do you do when the teacher is actually the bully and your child the constant victim? Enough is enough, I have reported to the school authorities and I will see this to the end.”
