Andrea Ekeng Inyang, the special assistant to Cross River Governor, Ben Ayade, on Strategic Communication, has shared his thoughts on a viral photo of a mother carrying her son’s locker.
The photo, showing a mother carrying her child’s locker on her head to his school, gained widespread attention on social media after it was shared online.
The image elicited a range of reactions from netizens, many of whom pointed to it as evidence of a “mother’s love” for her child.
Inyang, however, had a completely different viewpoint. He asserted that the mother’s act was pampering rather than a display of affection.
“This is not love please. This is pampering. I carried my locker to school alone and here I am on Facebook today, not dead,” he wrote on Facebook.
