The values we ride on in life dictate the pace and direction we follow, because they act as subliminal guidelines in our ambitions and goals set out as a targets in the course of our existence on earth. We need to remember that, our environment and everyone we come across on a daily basis are a reflection of our choices and decisions and if we decide collectively to impact the next person’s life positively, we are in return doing good for ourselves in the long run.
For a long time, it seemed like the decision I took to follow diplomacy and peaceful cohabitation looked alien to the Nigerian system, even the most educated will look at you and still call you , Oyinbo, you know why? Just because you want things to go accordingly or in line with impacting the people that do not have access to the best things in life.
While we want to pass our cultures and values from one generation to another , it is important to maintain the current institutions that exists, to facilitate equilibrium in growth and development. The educational institutions have to be given top priorities as they are the bedrock for progressive strides across areas of government.
It has been reported that the Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba, has postulated that the striking university workers which includes the Academic Staff Union of Universities, Joint Action Committee of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities and the Non-Academic Staff Union of Education and Associated Institutions are totally wicked and mean for the continuous closure of universities. It is sad that the unions are still currently on strike over failure by the Federal Government to honour their agreed terms and conditions that has risen from several meetings in the past. The strike is said to have reached its 50th day as at the 5th of April 2022.
