Just Do It
For some reason I believe that Nigeria can be better than our dreams. Maybe I’m young and naïve or I’m just idealistic but I believe we can get things right in this country not by trading blames or philosophizing but by taking action.
I’m Nwokoma Chimgozirim and I hope to make you resist the status quo one article at a time.
The Youth, Africa’s Problem
Africa can’t be Africa if the effectiveness of the youth can’t be seen! Let’s forget about Africa progressing if the youth are not willing to change for the better!
Take Africa to be a CAR, the youth is the ENGINE!
Take Africa to be a COMPUTER, the youth is the CPU! But hold on…
The better the engine, the more durable the car!
The better the CPU, the better the performance!
The youth, the most energetic with the most developed minds! That’s why the youth is AFRICA’S engine.
But the YOUTH have still remained AFRICA’S PROBLEM.
The Problem of the Day and the Sea of Bribery and Corruption
For it was also said “there’s enough for everyone’s need but not for everyone’s greed”, the act of greediness in our society has helped in promoting bribery and corruption. Not only has it promoted bribery and corruption, it has also been the reason for the failure of many talented young Africans! When I say the failure of many young Africans, I mean not to say it’s the fault of theirs, no! But it is as a result of their supposed positions (in education or employment opportunities) being given to others.
It’s a pity! It’s devastating to see the Careers of these young talented Africans come to a halt because they refused to indulge in bribery and corruption. In fact, it’s heart attacking!
Let’s join hands together to bring bribery and corruption to an end in order to solve the problem of the day.
Arise Africa, arise Ghana.
