I worry for the kind of future we are creating for our children. And to compound my worry, we are even not preparing the children to be able to cope with the challenges we have deliberately created for them to encounter.
0We don’t save for them. We don’t empower them. We are not showing them how to take care of issues. They lack mentors. And we actually now borrow huge loans to fund our frivolous lives, thanks to politicians, and expect the unprepared children to deal with the issues when they get to the future.
Imagine this. When your hairdresser is bad you look for another one. When the team is doing badly, you sack the coach. When your tailor is not giving you clothes that enhance your body and hide your flaws, you change tailors. When your driver is driving you nuts, you drive him away. Bad mechanics can’t last 2 servicing with some people. When your doctor has wrongly diagnosed you twice… You think twice. When your house help adds more pepper and salt to your meals, you intervene on behalf of your kidneys, liver and Good health. Make you no come die of unknown causes. Even when a marriage is not walking, you walk away. Oh!, i nearly forgot. If a particular church is not feeding your spiritual hunger, you make a divine move to another church. BUT WHEN THE TEACHER IS NOT GOOD, YOU CANT SACK HIM. IN FACT, THE NATIONAL UNION OF TEACHERS SAY YOU CAN’T BLAME THEM. YOU MUST KEEP TOLERATING THEM. That is exactly what happened in Edo State. That is what happened in the case of Ekiti state. And the same thing is now happening in Kaduna State. So teaching profession is now where quacks that need to be taught, are teaching impressionable minds that need the teaching to be ready for the future.
Now I clearly understand what BOKO HARAM means.
Death to literacy.
