"When I used to hear about illiterate students graduating from Nigerian schools, I often wondered how that was possible," Wilsom Bonfere rejoined. He said this in response to the questionable characters of Nigerian graduates and applicants who we see everywhere roaming about with pseudo-files of credentials. They are there in the streets, villages, towns and cities. We have them in great number, and one does not need to go far to know that they are downright mediocrities and pseudo-graduates under the Sun.
Bonfere, please, let me ask you! When last did you visit a public school in Nigeria? If you ask me, I will ask you to go and read one of articles titled, "PUBLIC SCHOOLS ARE PUBLIC TOILETS!!! It does not require explanation. Just go to any public primary or secondary school anywhere in Nigeria! You will see dilapidated structures with smelling human excreta both in classrooms and premises. That is Nigeria for you. Massive ignorance and social negligence under the Sun!
Truth of the matter is that both the country and citizens are wasting away in limbo of downhill. That is why dreams, desires and longings are seen everywhere in fantasy or facebook. Everybody has dreams and plans but the means are not there for everybody to realize them for good under Sun. It is only political thieves (godfathers) and their thugs that are making it (leaving large) in the dead country, Nigeria. That is the problem. So many dreams and longings without means and resources for the implementation!
My candid advice here is that the people should continue fooling because there is no food for the wise in any retarded country under the Sun. It is known in wisdom as "Irony of life!" The wise are trekking while fools are riding on horses.
So, let us stop being hopeful in Nigeria. All hopes are gone because students are called "future leaders" while sound education is known as "hope for the people". There is no hope due to absence of sound education in the country. Hopeless nation with hopeless people under the Sun!
