The education system is so poor to the extent that the present generation of youths should not even think of meeting up with the past intellectuals this country had produced, talkmore of beating them.
Reading culture among the youths is dead and buried in the depth of the Atlantic Ocean.
The internet is a tool that aids fast learning, understanding and practice. But in Nigeria it is widely used towards the negative sides. Instead of reading inspiring books and journals that contains numerous intellectual benefits, we prefer to chat on frivolous issues like football, music, movies, rumours etc.
Many students only read to pass in school and not prepared to use what they have learned to uplift the society. So, what is the hope of marching the people of the past? Things are just getting worse on daily basis. As far as education sector is concerned, the present government has scored nothing but zero in the year under review.
The rate of plagiarism and intellectual fraud is also very high in the academic circle and no one is ready to legislate on this dangerous virus that can bring down the whole education sector completely. If our lecturers cannot create ideas on their own in their various fields, what do we expect from the students they are training.
One fundamental problem confronting researches and innovations among the Dons is lack of proper funding. The Federal Government must now wear the cap of sincerity if the education system must thrive in the nearest future. But the University lecturers must now sit up, put on their thinking caps and drive the education sector towards the appropriate path.
