Urgent measures have to be adopted for the cankerworm to not destroy the nation’s potential totally before long: it’s also important to be neglected. And, this is certainly, another cogent purpose Nigeria needs ethical renaissance and value regeneration in most areas of its national life.
But then, a applicable problem any honest-minded Nigerians ought to ask themselves at this juncture is: How did Nigeria get to this decadent state in their knowledge industry? Just like some significant stakeholders and professionals severally, have expressed sincere problems about the continuous injury regular examination malpractices are wreaking on the state, several factors have been sophisticated for this ugly development. The unbecoming tendency voraciously, continues to consume deep in to the social cloth, right from major schools to tertiary institutions of learning across the Nigerian Federation. It’s no surprise then, that the Nigerian Union of Educators (NUT), of new, passionately asked the National Assembly to declare a situation of crisis in the education industry in order to consciously revamp the missing wonder of the once flourishing industry.
Let’s focus on Africans. Most Africans I came to learn or proclaimed with are suspicious of and want to loathe, Nigerians. I do not suggest that at the person level. I’m speaking in collective or normal terms. Every-where I go, I hear Congolese, Togolese, Sierra Leoneans, Liberians and South Africans and the others speak ill of Nigerians. They hate the fact Nigerians are “also intense,” “also dishonest,” “love showing down their wealth,” and are “generally loud.” They link Nigerians (and Nigerians only) with “419” even when their particular nationals have been found doing criminal offences.
That 2019 jamb runz Nigerians are the nou’veaux riches in some of these African places is a source of jealousy. Unfortunately, when faced, many of these Africans have never related to or individually identified such new-Nigerians. They’ve just “been aware of Nigerians” who fit their problematic expectation. And they sing the song so noisy to anybody they match, painting Nigerians since the enemy.
One in every five Africans is really a Nigerian. Without Nigeria, close to 40% of sub-Saharan African places might have discovered it difficult to gain independence or be in existence today. Our place remains the lifeline of a few African-american countries. Also some Caribbean places are been served by Nigeria, economically; we staffed many of their medical facilities and schools. Since 1970 or thereabout, Nigeria has spent billions of dollars towards peacekeeping and financial and political stabilization missions. Additionally, 1000s of Nigerians have missing their lives in the company of those countries. But what do we get for every one of these attempts? Scorn and ridicule and loathe?
Despite an show recommendation by the National Construction that the Nigerian Universities should stop the perform of post-Universities Matriculation Examinations (post-UME) tests being administered by these institutions, it is instructive that the concerned authorities require to improve on the interior systems of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Panel (JAMB) and operations of related exam bodies in Nigeria.
The Nigerian undergraduates are, apparently, the harbingers and custodians of colossal sustainable progress within and outside the Nigerian society. This really is owing to the scintillating fact that the knowledge of youngsters is set by what the culture deems match for training and learning at all levels of the academic institutions.
Based on the Justice of the Great Court of Federal Republic of Nigeria, Justice Andrews Otutu Obaseki: “A university student is just a expensive asset on the tolerance of earth of vibrant service to his nation. We can not manage to stigmatize him with the shame of offense except shown in the Judge of Law “.The evident truth here is that the school scholar is really a invaluable advantage, however it stays arguable today. This is because, a typical Nigerian undergraduate has been exposed as to the is frequently called the “crap in, waste out” mechanism.
