If you are wondering what I am concluding, kindly check the first two posts here and here. It is great to know that our youth know what changes to expect and demand from our leaders for the benefit of society and national prosperity. After listening and interacting with many young people like myself, I have come up with some wrap-up points-or words of wisdom, like the older people say it here. I hope many youths find invaluable advice in these words. 1. Education is not...

Have you had an experience that upended your views or enlightened your view concerning certain issues? You need to read my first post in this series. On August 12, the International Youth Day, the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and Global Citizen launched a #showyourselfie global social media campaign to urge world leaders to make the needs and rights of young people a priority in the post-2015 development agenda. Young people were encouraged to take a selfie and...

On a transit from one part of Nigeria to the other I noticed the highway has really become scanty with bushmeat traders trying to make a living from their game, and my thoughts ran wild. It dawned on me that the Ebola virus has taken a turn on the lives of the local people hunting in the wild to make a living for themselves and families. The fact became clear, that indeed the western world has gradually taken over our culture in full with fearful stories that our wildlife and d...

When I sent out the question, “What matters most to the youth in Nigeria?” I thought I already knew what the response of most young people would be. The International Youth Day (IYD) was coming up and though the theme was concerned with mental health, I considered it important to have the people affected weigh in on what really mattered to them. Moreover, I had read about the European Parliament’s IYD priority here: The article, in commemoration of IYD, highli...

A developing country has at least three dire needs - development, national transformation and youth employment. These are dire needs of Nigeria. Development: because an economy that has experienced some years of stable economic growth requires this growth to be inclusive and accompanied by economic development. National transformation: because the need for leaders who lead by serving and have the necessary skills is critical to transforming societies. Youth employment: be...

The last two weeks have not been a beautiful one on the global backdrop. The war in the Middle East and the gradual ravaging of lives in the West Africa sub-region are some of the ongoings. The latter is fearful especially as the World Health Organisation’s chief has said that “Ebola is spreading faster than the effort to control it”. Nigeria has also shared a spotlight on the news stream about Ebola following the unfortunate death of Mr. Patrick Sawyer who apparently had con...

I learnt from my "Women Weave the Web" page, how young ladies from Nigeria, Ethiopia, Japan and other parts of the world join forces to affect the life of women in all endeavours. Also, the AWID, a non governmental organization, in South Africa, portrays the notion of feminism. I remember, when my mum stood behind me, when I came home with a cut on my head. Although I had caused the fight, she stood behind me no matter what. That is the trait of mothers today, to advocate. Every Mother will do t...

Girls have rights -- like the right to Quality Education, Health Services, Good Food and Socioeconomic benefits, as well as Values. Yesterday at my intern station, I watched a program where in the northern part of Nigeria, 35% of teenagers and young ladies go through hard labour, suffer to feed, have no quality education and no comfortable bed to lay their heads. Teenage girls also have children from poor homes. Values make us outstanding. It amalgamates us to the essential traits of life and a...
