I am sure we have all been following the current series of probes going on in the country. Never before have we seen first hand,the greed that has coveted the hearts of many public office holders. While our public institutions, healthcare systems,infrastructure and educational level continue to fall bellow standard, the accounts and wealth of a few continue to multiply. But the message of doom is for another day,for I am tired of complaining,I am here to talk about finding solutions.
I have learnt from the life of Barack Obama that social organisers are desperately needed if we must put things together again, because we all know its hard to trust all these our current leaders to do a good job,apparently they are busy spending estacodes. Therefore we youths need to start taking charge.
We can make a difference by starting pet projects that would aim to make things better and proffer solutions in our respective fields and organisations. I am talking about being part of operation save Nigeria.
We can begin by organising our communities and neighbourhood,it could be something as little as organising cleaning of our environments or helping out in our schools and places of work. It could be putting together a youth town hall meeting in your area or organising a mentoring class. It could even be providing pro active platforms by which youths can constructively engage one another,anything you do,just do something.
Ask yourself, what can I do to make a difference?. Post a comment and let me know what you decide to do. May our efforts be rewarded with success, Amen.
