Written by BOSS.

Education is not a privilege but a right as well as a priority for any nation that wants to survive.

There is no way a building with shaky foundation will have an everlasting structure. Examination malpractices are so rampant in our institutions to the point that not making the minimum requirement guarantees an admission neither does satisfying the minimum requirement guarantees a place except you know your way. University are being closed at will. Our institutions are places to practise cultism, raping, kidnapping. In place of working hard and spending a lot of time in the library and in group discussion, now students device many different ways to survive in the system. Students spend their cash and body in obtaining what they want. Unfortunately, we as a nation can only reap where we sow.

Lecturers miss classes with impunity. Our present leader was once a university lecturer but he’s closed he’s only done well by paying lip service to the ills of the education sectors. Students are no more willing to learn but look for short cuts to good grades and certificates without actually working for it.

Our university representatives are being bought. We could collectively let them know they’re no more speaking for us. Students should see the power that was once manifested in them as in the days of old. The memories of student power in the early nineties are still fresh and I believe the firing power is still there. More and more students are travelling abroad to get an education of more eminence. How about the families that cannot afford it? How about the consequences brain drain?

After all in the 70s and early 80s when educational institutions were of very high standard, the trend for foreign education was negligible. Some opinions even have it that, then only the ‘never-do-wells’ scurried abroad for further education. What then has led to the present decay in Education?

Let’s join hands together in putting this madness to an end. If we act, the younger generation will live to enjoy a better and a more prosperous Nigeria. Thereafter progress and tranquility will rain in this country and our nation will be full of future youths who are gainfully employed.

We are poised with the struggle for youth matters as it affects the youths and our nation, and map out ways that will better our community and the country in general. To acknowledge a fault is to take the first step in its transformation. A problem known is a problem solved. We are willing to sacrifice our time, efforts, energy and everything we have to save our country’s educational system. It’s up to me and you.
