What audacity have the leaders and elders of Nigeria to judge the youths when they have pillaged the entire treasury of the country and left the young with nothing!
What sort of nation have the elders built for the young ones to be proud of?
Did we not enjoy virtually free education, with scholarship and bursaries, when we studied at the universities?
Did we not have jobs waiting for us when we completed our studies?
What sort of country have we handed down to the youths that makes us feel justified to pass judgement on them?
“The rector of the Kogi State Polytechnic, Lokoja, Prof. Mohammed Atureta, has decried what he described as the prevalence of various acts of indiscipline among Nigerian youths.
Atureta, a professor of mathematics, who pointed at the ugly trend during the matriculation ceremony performed for the 3,200 new National Diploma (ND) and Higher National Diploma (HND) students of the school, lamented that cherished national virtues were being lost to myriads of social vices.
He said that the school, as a reformist institution, will do all within its powers to deliver on its responsibility of molding its students into future leaders.”
