Where Are Nigerian Students When They Are Most Needed?

Why are nigerian students so sheepishly silent with the abominations going on the country?Why can't they roar up and bring about the much needed change in that country and let the world watch and see how many the government will kill.

The youths are said be the future of tomorrow but nigerian youths are as disillusion and placid as broken creatures.

Oh,what a hopeless situation.

But what the education all about then?Education is suppose to nurture people to create,to built,to establish and multiply,it is a state of fearlessness and state of delving into the unknown

When the universities was producing those kinda people, the students were only worried about having fun and being rascal, and those days are gone, the students now want a share of the national cake.

The students now wanna run out of Nija and all that, cos now it is survival of the fittest and no one wanna be known for being a good boy anymore.

Disillusioned,eeh?.

The era of studentship that produced men like Wole Soyinka,Tai solarin,Chukwuma Nzeogwu,The Kutis dem and co was an era of vision and reasoning,it was an era where students chart their destinies because they are endowed with knowledge as a result of education ,even at secondary level.

But what we have in nigeria today as students even at university level are like bosom feeding babies that can't even see that the people they call leaders are their enemies that must be taken out by all means possible for them to be able to forge ahead and realize their destinies,rather they see the wayward,senseless,dubious and heartless generation of present leaders in nigeria as ELDERS that must respected and followed like zombies all because they don't have minds of their own as suppose intellectuals,they seem lost without the failed generation ahead.

Knowledge they say is power,but in nigeria it is otherwise.Education is freedom,education is decision making,education is leadership,education is selflessness,education is sacrifice,education is revolutionary and above all it is evolutionary.

At this time of instant media communication,where the world watches every move at every corner of the earth in an instant,an organized mass student protest can ground the country to a halt and make animals that call themselves nigerian leaders see differently.

well, OBJ's pikin is a senator and his other pikins are also doing fine, as far as i know.

Students whose parents sent them to school to study, but who decided to start fighting OBJ fatally for reasons best known to them, will have their reward in heaven, no doubt.

I agree Nigerian students have been fully surpressed. The situation is very pathetic. In times like this in the past, the voice of Nigerian students used to be strong and heard on national issues. Not only carrying placards, but also making robust intellectual contributions to national debates.

They are busy facebooking now.

Where is NANS? The situation is very bad. Many destructive national policies in the past have been reversed due to students' resistance. The Ali-Must-Go riot of 1978 and many others. The Segun Okeowos of the 70's, Lanre Arogundade of the 80's and even the Tony Fash of the 90's.

It's a pity Nigerian students have been embarrassingly silent on national issues. No threats, no propaganda, no even press conference or advertorial on the litany of mess the nation is wallowing in.

It is not only students, all the labour Union Unions, from ASUU to NLC, appear to have been surpressed. Too bad.

Must it be the students? In any case, I am not too comfortable with Nigerians living outside Nigeria talking about Nigerians living in Nigeria not doing enough because the fact remains that those living here are doing enough by not running away like others.

Even in your host countries there are still anomalies that you are still living with and none of you have carried placards or stormed the government houses of your host countries.

You guys should stop talking like you have done better or would do better if you were in Nigeria. Enough of these comments!

Things have changed, students of today have different priorities, hey spend too much time worrying about materialistic stuff, facebook and NL, they're are not ideological and patriotic like Nigeria students in the 70s and 80s.

Hundreds of student died back then fighting the government and OBJ, Today's students are just weaklings,

BECAUSE

Unlike African American students during the 1950's, Nigerian Students REVEL in their differences with the rest of Nigerians. They get off feeling they are better than poorer, unschooled africans rather than uplifting their country.

This is why Nigeria will not move forward. They are silenced by their parents and are more concerned with their own inflated status.

Many of which enter into the workforce jobless and are ready to leave for greener pastures abroad.

Too late to cry.

When Mr Obasanjo was busy dealing with 'student union' and organised Labour, you all applauded.

Now it has come back to haunt you all.
