It is so glorious to have vibrant and outstanding youths in Nigeria. Having that in this resourceful nation is a good match. However, it is too poor to dedicate our precious time for unrepentant services in our dwindling economy. We see how we sleep with pity and wake up with sorrow; yet, our borrowed government and religion are adding rooms for such entertainments.
We are living in existing deplorable rooms and we are still establishing our futures in the rooms. We get comforted by the same people repeatedly on short services. It is a big shame to our composure and exposure. To the regards, we must try to do something that could change the narrative.
Our youths have abandoned useful things to marry meaningless things. High rate of damages done to our prospective generations due to our reckless enterprises are way too forward. We have dwelled with blind promotions and have solely engaged with most deceptive things while we thought advancement is on a goal. We have refused to learn and emulate basic things that could help facilitate and fast-rack environmentally-oriented results.
Hence, we should stand up for ourselves – no one would do so. We should do away with backbiting, jealousy, belittling, fighting and depriving one another so that our uniformity can move certain merits for our upliftment which can pave ways for our collective dominance.
Why should we continue to work for people who have no singular regards for our options? For how long should we continue to borrow to manage adventures that couldn’t be of use? Why should we be noisemakers on the national issues – unadulterated claims with lack of proofs? Why do we think the government would take us seriously while we spend our time and little we have on inoperable things? For how long do we wait for our failures because of the less ego to start campaigning and mobilising for one another on time?
Our government is getting things mixed up daily. The same thing to our religion. Our immediate families are making this, too. And, this has left us in a middle of confusion. Happily, most of us have been educated and we are still opened to learning.
In the wake of that, this is why we shouldn’t drown in the pools of confusion and high standards of difficulties before us. Therefore, we must begin to strive and continue to strive no matter how difficult is it to liberate ourselves and to work towards reasonable and effective directions unlike these years used and drove in ignorance.
For as many of our youths who are doing well, it is an opportunity to see to demands of our brothers and sisters. If we make it mandatory that once a colleague or colleagues have; is invariably, when all in the class have, then, we can’t live our lives on excuses, blames and workings that wouldn’t take a minute. Open and genuine growths and developments are upon the calls.
Therefore, when our young celebrities, our young great entrepreneurs, our young intellectuals and the host alike can drop excessive life on purchasing expensive things that wouldn’t transit with us to the other realm, but to be used in networking and building lives of meaningfully and reasonably-minded youths – we trade our comfortable lives together and to our future generations. Because, the government and the religion don’t hold us humanity. Humanity credits them. We should just embrace love with humanity. We use this to mount and dismantle what we like in the societies. We must therefore use humanity to settle one another.
