I feel like screaming on top of my lungs today….and I really mean it. I am in the middle of recruiting promoters, for a brand campaign, and it is appalling that young people, have a hard time expressing themselves clearly. What are we doing? I have chatted with 10 young people and they couldn’t express themselves in English. For instance, I asked a young man (23 -25years) what he was engaged in, since leaving school and, his response was ‘NOTHING’. I wanted to scream at him “What do you mean by Nothing?” How can you be living within a vaccum? My colleague who noticed my expression, stopped me in time from committing a huge blunder.
Mr. President….what are you doing if you cannot move the nation forward? It is so appalling that you travelled to Saudi Arabia for an opening ceremony of a world class university, while your educational institutions are rotting and have degenerated.
What is so appalling about our situation is that, the situation is not resticted to the Nigerian youth but adults as well. I see so many people living in a vaccum on a daily basis. It is so frustrating. Phew…I am so speechless and I am thinking of how I can turn this situation around. It’s no wonder why most young people have adopted street language as an acceptable form of communication to replace English Language. So much for 7 point Agenda and 2020 vision or whatever.
