Eating junk meals consistently, has been pronounced as unhealthy for one’s health, various researches have proven this!
Once upon a time within a great Nation, people in higher institutions had the best of education, the Nation was so rich that a former head of state once said ‘’Money is not our problem, but how to spend it’’. I never studied history in school but my Father’s interest in the Nation’s history made me know much about my Country.
Many people have said the discovery of Crude oil some decades ago has led to the present situation that we have at hand currently, but I beg to differ! There are quite a number of Nations in the World today that have Crude oil, but have been able to manage the financial resources realized from Crude Oil effectively and efficiently over few decades, these Nations have diversified tremendously into other Sectors such as Hospitality & Tourism, Agriculture, Mining, Transportation , Health (Medical tourism & effective health recovery process), ICT, etc.
The challenge on ground in my great Nation is the manner at which the Nation’s Multi-billion dollars or possibly trillions of dollars have been mismanaged or squandered over many decades. Poor governance/bad leadership, and CORRUPTION (the grandmaster of greed) across various arms of government has brought the Nation to her current critical condition.
The next generation has seriously been at the receiving end of all that has been happening, many graduates are left jobless, and to make matters worse, they are made to believe that they don’t have all it takes to get attractive jobs, but surprisingly when the same set of graduates leave Nigeria to any other Nation in the world, they are ranked among the best, so who is deceiving who?
The generation ahead of the youths are truly giving out their ‘best’, but their ‘best’ seems to be far below what they received from their predecessors. They had good education and had access to better jobs easily without stress, we’ve heard a lot of pleasant stories of ‘’Once upon a time, it was so beautiful in Nigeria’’, but when will they actually vow to make the next generation (their successors) enjoy all they ever had access to while they were youths within the same Nigeria?
The above question is what they need to ponder on and right the wrongs done to the next generation (their successors). When, how and if that will happen? It’s an answer that the Creator of the Universe has tangible answers to! And I hope that we’ll not finally settle with the words of the Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka who said ‘’My generation has failed Nigerians’’?,according to an article I once read.
