School results for sale

29 October 2013, 16:52 Onyeji Dominic

Sometimes I wonder if Nigerians really know that their country is covered in tick darkness. "How can they know when majority of them are living pretentious lives in schools, churches and mosques?" said Mr. Sincerity. "Who is sincere, sound and genuine in Nigeria?" he asked. You will not understand what a retarded nation is if you lack insight, intuition and wisdom.

How can Nigerians know when the country has the highest number of mediocrities in the world? How many Nigerians are truly learned? If the people are sincere to themselves they should know that great number of general population is educated fool-cum-illiterate. If they are not why are they buying and forging results in schools?

Truth is that things had got to the ebb. Deterioration and retardation are enthroned in lives and minds. Evil is now ruling because the people are full of corruption, pretense and wickedness. They are just there in schools, churches and mosques deceiving themselves in hypocrisy and make believe.

Let somebody tell me! How many students in Nigeria are seriously committed to study, research, discovery and finding? Truth is that system of education is down-rightly down. Nothing is working because ministry of education had been sleeping for too long. The students are just there wasting and whiling away their precious time and the authorities are dubious, willfully selling school results to the unmerited. Majority of graduates in the country are carrying fake results. That is why they are mediocrities. If you doubt go to places like WAEC and NECO. Just tell security man at gate that you want to buy school result. He will not hesitate to direct you to the dubious source because he knows that cheap reward is there for him. It is certain that he will get a tip if not bribe from the purchase. So, why won't he direct you when he knows that his salary is miserable? Things like bribe and fake result are justified in Nigeria because ways are evil, and lizards are laying flat.

I have asked this question before. Let me ask again. Who are mediocrities? If you ask the learned they will advise you to run away from religion in Nigeria. You know why? People like pastor and Afar are downright mediocrities. They wallowing in shadow due to lack of sound education and low mentality. They cannot lead you in the right because half-education is dangerous. Millions of minds in churches and mosques are poised with erroneous and benighted sermons.

One big problem is that people are no longer seeking knowledge. Nigerians are not asking the wise. They are starving and killing them instead. Why?
