Doom Day

17 November 2014, 18:25

Sometimes I wonder where we are heading. Today's youth always blame the government for not providing the necessary equipment needed to shape their future but I say other wise, I do not believe in someone that someone can do for me what I can do better for myself.

Our youths has be compromised by the Western lifestyle, instead of making things easy for themselves, and improvise with the situation, they always compromise it. American for instance would pay a million dollars just to match Jay Z perform, rather than go to sanate house for free,t hey worship artist like Jay Z, P Diddy, Beyonce, etc.

This stretch has extend to our beloved country, we now worship people like Tuface, P Square, Terry G, Wizkid, Olamide and many others,don't get me wrong this people are good people at least they have done something reasonable with their life. I feel sorry when ever I look at our educational sector, no Nigeria University entered top 700 university in the whole world.

People what are we doing? Are we sleeping? Even the Asia who find it difficult to speak English are fast becoming best in the whole wild world, they have become so successful when it come to education because rather than worship artist and movie stars, they took people like, Bill Gate of Microsoft, Paul Allen of Apple, Albert Einstein, zark of facebook, Warren Buffet as their role model,we as youth are not doing enough to encourage our government, likewise our government are not doing their work well enough.

Why? Why? Is it that mostly those who are less educated become something out of the ordinary that those well educated,I will tell you why,the less educated knows less about corruption,he or she only do what their mind tells them,while the well educated wears the wrapper of corruption around his or her neck like a birth core, thinking they are wise, I for one is among the less educated when I drop school early. But I have a dream ,so we most work together as one to avert this doomday ahead of us.
