No jobs! Language of the fools

13 June 2013, 10:07 Onyeji Dominic Uzoechi

Ignorance, make believe and mediocre-living are major things that make man to loose opportunities in life. Cities and labour markets in Africa are filled with frustrated applicants and mediocre-graduates. Their general Language is, "No jobs!" Language of fools.

White men are everywhere in Africa creating jobs. Their companies and machines are planted all over. Why are Africans not creative? If we are graduates and there are no jobs, why can't we create them like the white men? They are graduates too.

There are jobs and lucrative opportunities everywhere in Africa. Things that we actually need to tap into the opportunities have been neglected for so long. Africans don't embrace knowledge and wisdom like the white who know the values of sound education. This was among things that made Nigeria to "perish" recently in downhill.
ou can ask anybody. Nigerians are now like ghosts. Nothing is working in the dead country. Education and economy are in shamble and electricity and other things are not working. Citizens are living like ghosts in darkness. If you doubt, ask Pro. Wole Soyinka. He wrote a poem (Elegy) to his dead friend, Chinua Achebe and said it there wisely that Nigeria is dead.
