Just as Nigeria is good at winning u16 football cup; in the same vein, Nigeria loves producing first class graduates at BSc level.
You can't compete with the whites at advanced level All these talk talk won't get us anywhere; we are NOT INTELLIGENT enough!!

How many of our programmers can hack better than the Indians, Americans and Europeans? At least we all have computers. How many Nigerians can invent a cryptocurrency like Santoshi Nakamoto did? How many of our chess masters can beat the average Asian grandmaster?

We'd rather gather and talk, talk and talk!

Cool.
I tell people, no matter how the society try to make education seem worthless, there is pride and dignity in getting educated.

You can stand on your roof top and shout "school na scam" as loud as you want but don't make the mistake of thinking education is a scam. It's not.

Education still remains the best legacy parents can leave for their children. Better to get the degree and it'd not be needed yet than for it to be needed and you'd not be able to tender one.

My story:
I gained admission in 2013 and it was that same year a friend of mine who lied to his people that he was doing predegree at Uniabuja to gather enough money traveled to South Africa.
We weren't really in touch and it continued like that till I graduated and was waiting to be posted for service. He called with an international number and boom, we started conversing on WhatsApp.

I was in NYSC camp when a strange Nigerian number called me and it was him. He told me he was back and asked where I was. I replied and gave him the location of the camp.
Later in the evening that day, my friend came to visit me inside the orientation camp with his new whip (evil spirit, I don't know the official name of the car)
I went to meet him putting on my white round neck over my white short with my white canvass and NYSC cap .
We had a conversation in his car and I jokingly told him I went to school while he went to the abroad and while I was dressed in that NYSC uniform, expecting my #19,800 per month as a graduate, he came with a car and a lot of money from his trip abroad.
We laughed over it but then, that was the truth, mhen!

That's how ridiculous our government has made education look like. Very sad and serious. You wouldn't even have the courage to motivate the young guys are now prefer seeing the rich criminals as their role models than you who are a broke graduate.
Dude is made now in Nigeria and has established a big farm somewhere in the country, got himself a wife recently and now owns two cars with a furnished apartment.
But I'm here, months after service, still looking for meaning to myself and direction. I've trekkked all the nooks and cranny of Abuja looking for a job.

But yet, we remain focused and determined.
I've been broken but not damaged beyond repair. While I'm happy for him, I believe my years in school plus NYSC won't come to a waste. We all will be okay last last and that's the goal.

Right !


Education is the bedrock of any economic development.. Our greatest resource is not oil but our mind... We need to go back to the drawing board and have a complete overhauling of our university system.

Build a strong Internal control and periodic personnel Audit for the Teaching and Non teaching staffs..

Attaching Lecturer remuneration to student performance and intellectual development and beneficial progressive research.

Segregating duties of Lecturer,The lecturer marking should not be the one teaching..There should be a different department marking exams script and review the results in case of mistakes and error in grading..

Any lecturer caught accepting blocking or having sexual relations with a student should be JAILED and all his qualifications withdrawn!.

All department should have a highly skilled Technocrat with an enormous industry experience,he can be a visiting lecturer to teach the Ultimate students and transfer practical knowledge and prepare them for the real world...


FG should invest massively in STEM education. STEM is the new oil..

FG should set up a technical committee comprising of Expert with vast experience in each field of study to look into each Department syllabus and academic time table,they should remove all irrelevant topics and add more practical topics..They should build the syllabus in line with current world standard.



The University campus should have a Metropolitan Area network to enable student carry out research and have access to many e-learning facilities..

The University should have an effective Human Resource Department were employment will be based only on merit and intellectual ability,organising workshop training and sending some lecturers to further abroad,a more robust remuneration and incentive to motivate them,Promotion should be based purely on Practical and innovative research that will help industry and economy not mere "copy" and paste" journals.

France produces 80,000 engineers and 70,000 Ph.D.s every year, and one in three now create business..FG should start fuelling the entrepreneurship spirit among students because its the only panacea to the high unemployment rate.

FG need to start running our Educational sector like business,we need to focus more on this sector.
