It’s not even funny any more! We laugh at the funny videos with Chuey Chu on PulseTV where people can’t spell words. But… the reality of Nigerians, as seen in this latest video on Battabox TV is NOT funny!
The education system in Nigeria has gone to the dogs! How on earth is it that Nigerians are unable to spot Nigeria in a map of Africa? What is going on in primary schools – basic primary schools? We are not even talking about the fancy pants schools where they go on excursion to Paris and study the Louvre. What is happening at the grassroots level of education in Nigeria?
We need to start paying more attention to basic education. Yes! All of us. Spend an hour with a child today and teach them some Math, Geography, English. Teach them deductive reasoning and inductive logic. This doesn’t stop at the government level – even though the bulk of it lies with them (policy makers and directors… what are you doing in Office?) We need institutions, families, religious bodies… everybody… ALL HANDS ON DECK!
Honestly, we need a complete re-evaluation of our system at every level! This is just so sad and appalling.
A complete OVERHAUL… is what we need in the Nigerian education system. If we don’t fix it now, there’ll be nothing left for our children.
They’ll all run away to America oh! And you know how you people don’t like Americans to corrupt your African values. And if we as Nigerians can’t spot Nigeria on the map, how can we in good faith get mad when people say “Africa is a country”
Okay, we’ll stop hyperventilating now and let y’all watch the video:
