Nigeria youth and contemporary global challenge

16 October 2014, 20:24

Fifty one years after independent and witting the 21st century, Nnamdi Azikiwe still battle with one of the major fall -out of our social forces of democratization and globalization which have brought into prominence issue concerning young people. This is derived from a recognition by national government that the youth is arguably the avant-grade of social change, according to this paper, it examines the place of the youth in Nigeria in the political participation and
development process.

As a dominant stakeholder in the democratic project, it is considered the opinion of the authors of this that the youth mirrors the fears, anxieties and expectation of the civil society, unizik have been a school of political favouritism the after spend all the money in buying jamb and postume and sitting for the exam, that's why the youth get invalid results. I have seen it as a challenge to the youth and in Nigeria academic sector where by gain admission is not for those who suffer and sat for the exam but for those who have money and who are politically connected with the administrative board, I have look to the nature of this year admission and to my own view it was nothing to write home about, corruption in our academic sector, if you ask their call it (Espirit de corps) unizik academic sector has been the greatest obstacle to the nascent democracy is the pervasive favouritism. This has been an evidenced by the spate of youth not being educated, drop out, armed robbery attacks, political assassination, religious conflicts and exclusion of youth from political participation coiled with the seeing helpless of education sector in Nigeria ( unizik).

Mostly youth, some of whom are ready recruits for criminal activities ( Nigeria Tribune ,2002) PROBLEMS, The relevance of Nigeria youth and contemporary global challenges (unizik) The department of political science and social affairs of the united nation, while examining challenges and contributions of the youth toward the realisation of the 'Millennium Development Goals( MDGs )however, there are considerable obstacle and challenges facing Nigeria youth such as poverty, illiteracy, unemployment, drugs, poor education foundation in Nigeria education sector.

Government should look deep in some of our education sector and see what some academic administration is doing, where by the VC will keep 20 personal security for himself were non of his student can come close to him and discuss issues with him, let us give our youth chance of participation in education, political. It is hoped that if policy pronouncement of matched with action, the youth will from fulerum of transparent, purposeful and service _oriented leadership with sustainable development in the 21s century, let there be a solution to our problem in our academic sectors (unizik) youth are crying to day because they are denied from their own hardship. Invalid results should resolve in UNIZIK postume. Let's put our hands for the innocents that cry becouse of corruption in Nigerai education, this article was power by national association political secience student( NAPSS)say no 2 unizik academic corruption
