One of the ways Nigeria can stay ahead or keep pace in Energy and I.T innovations around the world, is by maximising the time and potentials of our youths.
Our young ones and students are very innovative, industrious, quick to learn. They just need an opportunity, someone to believe in them and send them to a place where they can develop their skills and interests.
They can go from repairing TVs and computers and cars to building our own, they are all around computer village, selling bootleg softwares or downloads, stealing machine parts or selling just about anything on the streets.
This energy and passion can be channelled to mind-blowing Energy, I.T and other innovative projects. WE ARE WASTING THEIR YEARS. We encourage our own backwardness, youth frustration and eventually, crimes.
When will the first Nigerian or African car be built, or computers not just assembled here, but made here. Keep the African Child’s passion alive. SSCE, JAMB, Post UME, they’re just too much. Two JAMBs by one smart student can translate to 50 years of backwardness for the continent.
We never know, who that one giant is, so let’s rescue as many as we can. The school is not the place where you gain knowledge, there is currently knowledge everywhere. But the school helps you think critically and encourage never-before-seen modes of thinking and creativity. So we should also save the system from traditions and old methods or do or die answers to questions by old teachers and professors who fail to evolve with their profession. Or the ones who send students out of the class for asking too many challenging questions.
Questions lead to research and discovery, young minds are curious. This is our chance.
EXPORTS CAN EXCEED IMPORT, WE HAVE SO MUCH MORE WE SHOULD BE SELLING TO THE WORLD.
KEEP THE CONTINENT IN MIND. TIME IS PRECIOUS. HEAL THE EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM, HEAL THE ECONOMY!
