Problems Affecting Nigerian Youths by Emmiasky(m): 4:49pm On Jan 08, 2020

You know, when one thinks of Nigeria and her problems, the first thing that pops up in the mind is the corrupt system she’s been practicing over decades.

The young children and adults in Nigeria are nurtured up in the corrupt system run by the ruling powers, the political parties.

The old (rulers) of the nation are greedy politicians and game players who over the years have refused stepping down from the game of politics and made the plebeians their pawns in this game of theirs, they decide who comes up, who goes down and who stays there, all for their own personal benefits.

This is can be noticed even in the local council centres where the public are to be offered services on a first come – first serve base, but with a few money-shakes (handshakes), positions are swapped for money and rights are too.

The resulting upshots of being nurtured in such a system are the visible moral misconducts and activities being performed by young adults in the nations today, the involvement in scams, cyber crime (yahoo yahoo, wire/waya), institutionalized bribery, nepotism and so many more since they’ve been watching the elders do it, why not them too?

Youths in Nigeria are claimed to be more than half of the 200+ million Nigeria and with reports from the National Bureau of Statistics the unemployment rate among the youth at 65%, this shows Nigeria still has a long way to go regarding employment and job creation for her ever-uprising numbers.

Many struggle through their tertiary days with hopes to find a valid and sensible job which they would in turn use to fend for themselves and their family but so is not the case, as after graduating, many more are left to deal with job searches and the bribe-infested officers in charge of recruiting.

Since the saying ‘an idle hand is the devil’s workshop’ still is valid, the lack of employment opportunities has led so many (not justified) to involvement some degrading activities such as kidnapping, cyber thefts, ritual processing and so on.

In terms of education, Nigeria seems to be lacking in a lot of ways, gaining entry into public schools these days even involve money, what’s more, the pricey cost and toils of getting admitted into universities , with all these to settle for the poor and traditional methods of black and white, the educational system of Nigeria has refused to move with the advancements technology has brought to educators and educationists.

Moreso, the educational system of Nigeria doesn’t seem to train you for tomorrow anymore, many students are yet to figure out why they are in school in the first instance and so many just attend tertiary institutions for the certifications.
Students don’t even take examinations serious anymore, most now rely on the ‘orijo’/cheat-sheet that would be provided by a fellow students or on life-damaging websites that provide these answers some periods prior to exams.
