WE NEED A RADICAL OVERHAULING OF THE NIGERIAN EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM.
FUNNY, BUT TRUE!
If you take a school leaver O’ level and you enrol him with a tailor: 3 years after he would be able to sew any style of clothing.
If you take a school leaver and you enrol him with a mechanic:
3 years latter, he would be able to fix just any car, even the complex internal combustion engine and it’s systems.
If you take a school leaver and you enrol him with a Mobile phone repairer: 3 years after, he would repair your latest iPhone with precision.
If you take a school leaver and you enrol her with a baker: 3 years after she is baking multi level cake of different varieties and taste for occasions.
If you take a school leaver and you enrol him with a welder: 3 years after he would fabricate gates and just anything made of iron.
If you take a school leaver and you enrol him with an event planner: 3 years after, she would handle your events with such skill and style.
If you take a school leaver and you put him in a university,
Under the tutelage of Professors and Doctors
4 or 5 years + Strikes after:
He would not know beyond diagrams, formulae, Definitions and Theories.
He would need extra training to work in his industry.
He would be seeking for who to employ him or her
Is anything wrong with the school leaver?
NO, I doubt
But something is wrong with the system that kept him for 5+x years yet made him obtuse and out of touch with reality of what obtains in the real world.
That system needs to be OVERHAULED
but while you await its OVERHAULING
DEVELOP THINE SELF!
