The other day, I was at radio continental where Wale Powpowpow and his crew engaged me in a fierce discourse about the future of many of our hopeless youths.
I was so mad about the youths predicament in Nigeria, that I kept swearing, cursing and dissing our leadership for mortgaging and stealing away the future of the Nigerian youths. Trust me, by the time I gave my phone number out on radio, the phone lines were jumping off the hook, Hummm come and see calls. Many who called in, plagued to stand behind me on battle day.
“Nonsense why would you people stand behind me and not besides me, how many times have I led different groups in the advocacy of whatever their challenge may be only to turn around and not see anyone behind me or is it the people you’re fighting for always denying you?” For any nation or people to succeed, such people must be united in their effort with unabated spirit to fight for a course which is no other than social justice and equality. However most Nigeria youths are wasting and dying in the sad river of frustration, dejection, suffocation and total hopelessness, Chai!!!
Most of our youths these days are, incapacitated, unwilling, unable and incapable of standing up for their rights. How can they? When most of us are still collecting pocket money from our parents, some still writing Jamb., can’t feed or fend for themselves, still jobless and not even making any tangible effort to reshape their bl*ak future. My guys why have most of us become so docile?
Why for Christ sake ain’t we angry, what can Sagging our trousers achieve when we have been robbed of our destiny and future by all the Yahoo yahoo kalukalu leaders. Why for heavens sake are you not Mad that the leadership for long have never cared about us, hence they have killed education because all their children are abroad in the best schools with our stolen money. Oh God!
Our Mumu never do?
What about all the campaign promises to hit the ground running, or is it just People Deceiving People still? Till today I haven’t seen or heard of any road map for the youths of this country.
They promised us 3 million jobs a year, not only have we not seen 1 job but they have taken 1.5 million jobs from us with their abrakadabra economic policies. Yet we all just tanda der like zombies, as we still await their miserable pittance of 5k after the billions and trillions of our recovered stollen money and you’re not upset? Don’t you know that for every kobo that is stolen from the public treasure, the life of one of us is made hopeless? Do we need to be shoemakers to know if our shoe fits isn’t it obvious that government has abandoned us De people, God are you keeping quite?
I challenge the youths towards changing their mindset.
We should be thinking about a non-stop public protest and demonstration until most of these useless leaders are made to pay for their sins against the nation. Why can’t there be a revolution that will serve as a deterrent to future leaders. Where youths are weak to standup to government, every successive government would continue to intensify their effort to compound the horrors that had been caused by the previous leaders and the future of Nigeria would continue to be in a state of detour. Fear is a state of nervousness fit for children and not men.
Lets inspire one another to stand out and do great stuffs, not what is popular, but what is different, what can add value in our homes and on our streets.
Great Naija youths, stop whining and sagging, swing into action, take the oath of authority now, assume your leadership role with the philosophy that the supreme authority under every democratic regime resides with the people.
Remember, who will save Nigeria from Nigeria if not YOU, Kai!!! Make una no fall my hand. Where are Nigerians exceptional youths? Come fourth because you are our last hope.
God bless you Area Fada, This is a wonderful piece.
