THE FUTURE LIETH NOT IN THE GOLDS, DIAMONDS, OILS AND COCOAS BUT THE YOUTH OF AFRICA.
I see no wrong with the younger generation being allowed to take leadership roles in this our time. I see nothing wrong with the society laying down ample structures to empower the youth of today to take active part in the democratic process of our dear nation.
I have gone through the rat-hole and that of the hole of the crab. There is only one similarity, whiles that of the rat’s is a hole, the same applies to that of the crab. In all, we must never take an ignorant stance against the vast differences that lieth between these two holes. Whilst that of the crab holds water and mudd, that of the rat holds residual products of cassava, palm nut and dry earth.
We need not to think in the abstract like that of an African rocket scientist who has never seen a rocket engine before, yet he believes and hopes in fairy tales of the impossibles and unrealisticalities.
So far as the future of our beloved nation(s) and continent lieth not in her vast natural resources like the Golds of Ghana and South Africa, the Oils of Nigeria and Lybia, the Cocoas of Cote d’ Ivoire and Ghana and so on, and the elderly, the youth must thus be involved in decision making and as such be allowed to undergo mentorship routine from the older generation.
This way I believe, will enable us to safegaurd the future of our nations, continent and generations uborn. We can, and we must. Let that which have being eaten to spoilage go away, then lets make deliberate efforts to safeguard that which has not gone waste.
The time is not tomorrow, instead it’s about today and how we prepare against the unforseen tragedies of tomorrow. The society must as well be ready to engage the youth productively and the necessary help must also be given to the youth.
