This is just unfortunate. Young Nigerians lacking ingenuity in ideas and morality in behaviour.

This is just unfortunate. Young Nigerians lacking ingenuity in ideas and morality in behaviour.

Permit me to say that the students, parents, teachers and government all share from the blame in 1:2:3:4 respectively (my opinion).

》The students have the least of the blame because they are vulnerable and rightly so.

》The parents share a larger portion than the students for failing to uphold family values within the unit of the family. A child that is well trained from home will strive to behave well at all times, speak the truth and won't have the flair for illegal misdmeanours.

》 The Teachers share a much larger share of the blame because they should serve as role models for all students and strongly fight against exam malpractice whilst maintaining the highest discipline possible in all our institutions. The teaching profession should not be a last resort for job seekers but rather a job for highly skilled and well paid professionals.

》Lastly the government, I don't even know where to start but one thing is certain.... *Misplaced priorities* is their problem. A country that its government priotises the funding of static sectors of its economy e.g entertainment, tourism etc and abandons the dynamic sectors, most especially education, science and technology, will never achieve development of any kind.

Take a look at the so-called world powers today, USA, UK, Germany, France, China, Russia even North Korea etc....they all have something in common and which is; extremely high standard of education across all levels.
A total revamp of our education is needed to arrest the situation. May God.save us, our children and future generations from this plague affecting our growth as a nation.
