There is something very crucial i want us to think about, and thats about the nationality of Nigeria, do we actually believe in one Nigeria, despite the different language, different traditions, different culture, do we believe we can live together in love and peace, in unity, in bond, can Nigeria survive as one, can all the ethnics in the country of Nigeria remain together, or do you believe that, the Biafra should go on its own, the naija-delta, the youruba's, the hausa's, should all be seperated?i dont know what you actually think about this. This is a great concern for Nigeria and Nigerians, do we think the name Nigeria can still bind all of us together, this is something we cant continue to shy away from, we need to be objective, and proffer a solution to this issue. If we the youth of Nigeria can all agree on one thing, then we can at least know we would have one voice, this would go a long way in strengthening our nation. On my part i think its worth it, we need to remain together as we have always been. I ask let all of us have this mindset, WITH THIS MINDSET WE CAN ACHIEVE ALL THAT WE WANT.

Admission crisis into Nigerian Universities

Just stumbled on a write up while browsing the internet, feel i should let you all see it, still on the issue of academic problems and issues facing the Nigeria youth.
The authors critically examined the problems of admission into Nigeria Universities; and expressed the view that about seventy percent of Nigerians are not aware of the essence of the present system of education, which is geared towards producing individuals with adequate knowledge and skills needed for self-reliance or employment on graduation from secondary school. Consequently, most parents and students still lust for the academic type or university education, hence the serious problem of admission into Nigeria Universities.

Certain factors militate against thousands of qualified Nigerians getting admission into Nigerian Universities. These factors include:
shortage of adequate manpower;
federal government policy on admission and the effect of catchments area and quota system
Inadequate Number of Universities in Nigeria
Lack of Adequate Facilities
Lack of Awareness of the Essence of the Educational System.
etc if you want to see the full details of this write up, click the heading of this post at the top.

Ngerian Universities

Looking closely at the universities we have in Nigeria, the first thing you notice is that is is over populated, that is the number of students exceeds the actual amount that should be there, this is not to mock our dear country or universities, but then the question is why cant there be more universities, the lecture theater gets as full as we having students staying in the corridor to listen to lectures, the classes are so large that if not seated in front, it would be impossible to hear what the lecturer has to say, a lot of times missing result is a normal phenomenal in our universities what do we do about situations like this?
Our Bachelor's degree in Nigeria holds no water in no part of the world. why because it has been concluded that we don't produce good graduates, what then should we do about this?
Nigerians have now put up the attitude of let me come out with anything, "whatever i read i can still work in the Bank" isn't that true?
Truthfully a lot people come out from this same universities, with all the problems and all the stress and yet they are tops in their field, so then the question is not really with the university, but the student. Our lecturers are really doing their best, a lot of the professors in our universities are well read, and they are trying to give us the best, well i think the rest is left with us as student to either come out the best or a mediocre which a lot of us prefer to be. Never ever forget that every child as to compete with every other child around the world, the world is an open place, what you make out of it is highly dependent on you.

Micheal Jackson

While growing up as a child, i use to dream of being like MJ, i use to try out his steps, tried singing like him, would imagine when i would be given the opportunity to have a hair do like his, all those wish finally drained as i saw my then hero change from what he was to what we had become in the recent past. That's not the essence of this message, no doubt MJ was a great man, as a matter of fact i would also agree that he is a legend.Going through some of the songs he sang, he was indeed a born musician, he was born to do it, the press said he was planning to go on another tour, but then death said, its time to go. I would like to say again TIME IS PRECIOUS, whatever you have to do today, do it the best way you can, like your life depended on it, give it your best shot. A lot of us still have talents inside of us that we haven't started using,let us discover the gifts we have inside of us, we need to wake up and smell the coffee its a new day, do something the world would recognize you for, don't waste time, time is precious.

Reuben Abati and Nigerian Entertainers

The tabloid in the guardian news paper that brought up so much dust is really amazing to me, its not the first time there would be such criticism, but how come this has raised up so much dust, well someone like rugged man got his fame through this kind of criticism, but why is this so different, well from my opinion, the man is partially right, its only the gravity at which he spoke about those things i worry about, he mentioned a lot of names, wrote their lyrics, i must comment the man, he is current but yet he still has an oldskool mentality, because i don't personally understand his problem with funkynyzn of the name Nigeria, i don't see how that shows dis respect, anyway, the man has made a lot of point, especially the fact that we get to hear more of beat than good lyrics these days, that is the truth, so i dont think we should just criticize the man without putting into consideration the truth in all he has said, i dont think its right for us to just judge, he is not saying he is not proud of us, he is simply saying we can do better, i think that should be taken as an elderly advice, in my own opinion, Banky w was too rash in answering back, its not a clash for stars.
Our Nigerian musicians are really doing well, but i think they can do better,i think this what he is trying to say, although am not in favour with the comparisons he made. Lets look inward and look deep into what he has said, some truthful, some biased, but then lets pick the good and make good use of it.

Questions for Nigerian youth

Questions for Nigerian youth

A lot of questions run through my mind everyday, and they have become a burden to my heart;
Why cant we make something relevant in the technology sector (e.g invention)?
why are we still struggling with power generation(PHCH)?
why is there a high rate of unemployment?
why are our politicians so corrupt?
why do we all prefer to leave our country(at least a high percentage)?
why cant we have enough universities?
why do we prefer to do scam(419)than other legitimate business?
why cant we have our own refineries?,
To be continued.....................

Nigeria youth and Admission problems

Alot of us Nigerians are still battling with the issue of entering universities, but most of us wait ignorantly, while waiting for admission, there host of other things we can engage in, from learning a craft, to increasing our knowledge.
While waiting for admission, we can enroll in for computer classes,language courses, or even start up professional courses from the beginners level, instead alot of us waste precious time doing nothing. Sitting at home would not help you, or getting involved in other activities that would not improve us, our alm is to look for something important to do that will add value to our lives.
