Miss Sylvie, a unijos student redress the Dora Akunyili concept of Rebranding Nigeria
Nigeria is a great country blessed with natural resources and great human resources, fertile land engulf with vibrant youths but poor industrial orientation and inadequate infrastructures hedlines by unwise level of corruption have turned dreams of many to nightmares. Its all on me like is just on u, let’s join our thoughts to built this Black Nation to GREATNESS. Indeed the land is green (T.Y. Bello).
“Nigeria; Good People Great Nation”
“country of over 180m citizens, about 327 tertiary institutions and numerous vocational centers with high pride in Solid minerals”, still import over 95% of her consumer products and with the high concentration and vast occurrence of our mineral heritage, we still can’t utilize the endowments of nature to our own very advantage, to tackle unemployment an reduce crime rate, we rather convert only an insignificant percentage of this assorted heritage to use, through an incompetent route of exchange. With that, any revenue generated from this transaction can not even satisfy the greed of those who Masterminded such exchange talk less of the vulnerable masses awaiting the dividend of thier co_heritage. “Nigeria Good People Great Nation“
Where as, Bad governance and coperate theft wouldn’t have fraustrate the economy successfully if every other phase were thriving well.
Statistics on trading economics has it that age 15-24 Is rated the highest unemployed age range, same age bracket a popular teen crime blogger Laura Sulivan, also recorded the highest crime rate.
How about Illiteracy;
Literally and logically, illiteracy as maniac is a cold form of psychosis and also as a social ailment is worse than HIV ( illiteracy denied you everything; u’re more or less useless).
According to WHO about 3.1-3.4% of Nigeria population live with HIV which account for over $4.3BILLION total sum of money lost to HIV/AIDS management annually.
Also, based on the 2006 Nationwide census, statistics has it that about 40.4% of the approximately 180Million Nigerians are illiterates.
The socioeconomic implications of illiteracy cost us 10 times more than HIV/AIDS. The differences between the two is that ” The former(HIV/AIDS) is a direct consequences due to somebody actions why the later(Illiteracy) is as a result of somebody‘s negligence and the consequences is indirect”.
My point here is this; if half this 40.4% were to be educated (Formal or vocational), they will reluctantly contributes atlest 5 times ($21.5B) of what we spend on HIV/AIDS. which is approximately equal to half of what we lost to not adequately utilizing human resources (Labor force) which may be due to individuals, families, societal or governmental negligence. perhaps, this will positively affect the annual GDP of the country, Which will also reduce unemployment and crime rate and it is a positive economic growth.
The change we desired begin with us, lets not fold our arms to dish out blames, just play your role, Who knows: who is to make the difference; THE EXTRAO=RDINARY IS JUST A MILD PLUS TO THE ORDINARY. create that change you crave for it begins with you…
