Nigerian education

If 2y(5x-7y) -6y X +6 = 45 find x.
Yesterday i was in the sitting room watching a program called
China24 on CCTV NEWS, an electric lamp manufacturer was
interviewed together with his workers in his factory. The workers are
kids between the ages or 12-18 the most beautiful part of it was that
the kids can on
their own manufacture same.
Now let's come down to Nigeria.
Nigerian students are busy searching for "x" while students in the
developed countries are manufacturing things for the development of
their country.
In Nigeria, our engineering students spend nearly all their time solving
difficult equations and searching for "x".
In Nigeria, students will be asked to search for "x" I do smile and ask
myself how can we use Algebra and simultaneous equation to boost
the economy.
How can we use the located "x" to solve the challenges facing us?
In Nigeria, teacher will draw a circle having dots in it on the chalk
board and tell the kids "this is an Orange" imagine.
In Nigeria, a teacher will be in the class room using acid to change
litmus paper to red on the chalk board. In fact, in Nigeria the best
place to mix acid with base is on chalk board.
In Nigeria, a teacher will be in the class teaching rock and it types
and expect the students to be able to identify them in real sense how
However, the above are some of the reasons why at 50+ as an oil
producing country we are still
importing tooth-pick and matches. Our brain has been channel to the
fact that failure to go to school will end one up as a domestic servant
of the educated ones which I seriously disagree
with. We can't all be in the class room at the same time and expect
us to catch up with the developed countries, it never done; we will
keep depending on them with such barbaric idea.
Let those that are willing to go into sport be on the field or track not
in class room, Christiano
Ronaldo of Real Madrid FC was expelled from school at the age of 14
and today he is a world
Let take those that are good in construction to factories or workshops
not class room. Let's take away pen from our engineering students
and send them out of class.
Let's take away pen from those that are willing to take hoe, cutlass,
hammer, saw, screw driver etc.
Our too much dependent on pen is sending us backward.
To me, spending 5, 6 or more years in tertiary institution is nothing
but a total waste of time, 3 years is enough for engineering courses.
12 calender month is enough for food related courses and 3 or 4
years is enough to be a lawyer. Imagine our youth spending 8years of their lives in university and still our Government don't trust on their expertise rather they travel out of the country..
At this juncture, I will like to call on the government at all level to
look into this and find a lasting solution to it.
Lastly our government should stop sending the talented ones away
by sending them aboard for
training and failed to establish/provide where they will be discharging
what they've learnt or the skills they've acquired upon their arrival. If
we can do this, I believe that few years to come Nigeria will be the
greatest country of the world while others will be on the queue at our
But before then, I remain my humble self. God bless my father land. Send dis 2 al nigerian students on ur list...
