Gone are the days when Nigerian youths like me would sit under a tree and listen to the stories of ancient fights from our grandparents. We now live in an age where we are restrained and scared of getting killed.
The economy is in great depression; terrorists have taken over, Every year we lose lives that could have been saved if the government would improve the educational sector, law enforcement agencies, military forces, health sector and other vital sectors in the economy.
Youths are considered the leaders of tomorrow, but what leaders are we going to be if we are not given sound education? Learning in Nigeria is as difficult as living in the country.
We are made to write a series of tests and exams that are not important in determining our intelligence. A graduate who hopes to begin a new life after college is left to wander on the street with no job.
New data issued by Nigeria’s National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) pegs the unemployment rate at 14.2 per cent in the last quarter of 2016, up from 13.9 per cent in the preceding quarter.
Among college graduates, unemployment is now the order of the day. You must know people working in these industries or companies and bribe them before you can get a job.
A single United States dollar equals 364.50 Nigerian Naira. The exchange rates have gone so high that it is difficult for Nigerians to send their children abroad to study. Meanwhile, Nigerian politicians are enjoying their lives, living in luxury while the people are crying for help.
The democracy that is supposed to be by the people and for the people is now by the government and for the government officials and their families.
We need the government to help us in every possible way, and just as we need the government, the government needs us, the people.
If we all can speak out and vote, then we can make a change, For years we have been voting for the wrong candidate who has no interest in making Nigeria better, but rather to embezzle money.
Both men and women, young and old need to vote. Your vote is your voice, your voice is your choice and your choice is your life.
