EDUCATION KILLS… Series II

Posted: April 26, 2011 in Uncategorized

ALDOUS HUXLEY once said: Every man who knows how to read has it in his power to magnify himself, to multiply the ways in which he exists, to make his life full, significant and interesting. Education is like a light through a tunnel, it goes straight in to the crucibles of a man’s heart and turns on that part of him that has been long dead like a magical wand into something magnanimous. It kills mediocrity and laxity including procrastination which is a very dangerous enemy towards success. Modern civilization has helped most African countries emerge from the darkness of archaic way of life into a bold manifest of discoveries.

Some part of Africa still suffers from improvishment and lack of education. In the far northern part of Nigeria and also, part of East Africa, young people still have a divide in terms of education whereby they are disconnected with events happening down south and this is a very great challenge towards development. Recently, Nigeria had one of the most historical events which was the election process for her President and just because the Winner of the election who probably had the best agenda, the best political campaign and also allowed the freest and fairest election so far, was from the South South, the Uneducated Youths from the Northern region instead of using the power of education to re-model their strategies and also check-and-balance their possible mistakes, they went blindly into the street to start killing innocent citizens mostly corpers who had participated as presiding officers for the elections. If only this young people were educated, their ignorance would have been killed. One question that keeps coming to my mind is who will remove the scales from the eyes of the Uneducated?

This is a call to NGO’s, CBO’s, CSO’s NFP’s etc to find a means of leaving already educated regions and move into local communities where their impact can be felt more readily. Move out of your space and educate someone today on something New.

The Good books says, one will chase (change) a thousand and two will chase (change) Ten Thousand.
