Pity is the case in Nigeria when Efe of Big Brother Nigeria can win N25m and gets loads of gifts which surpasses that amount and the best graduating medical student of University of Nigeria gets a gift prize of N10,000 from Guarantee Trust  Bank.(GTB). 

Please who is fooling who here? 

Organisations and the public at large is encouraging youths of today by this conduct that Education is no longer the key to success. It shows that hardwork no longer pays but being immoral and fun loving is more beneficial. 

And before we start comparing ourselves to our European or American or the Western world, may I ask this question: What did Efe invent?  Mark Zuckerberg came up with Facebook and Bill Gates came up with Microsoft. 

Because next argument or line of reasoning would be Zuckerberg was not a graduate when he became rich. Etc.So Efe can become rich without going to school and we are only beefing him because we are not the one. 

Don’t be fooled or deceived. All I can say here is that Nigerians are drowning the value of education in Nigeria by glorifying immoral acts on the altar of gold and at the expense of education. What stops these so called  big organisations to promote an educative competition like maths or English or even life skills. 

And here we go again as if the gift of N10,000 to the best graduating medical student is not a slap on our faces. The best graduating student of Paediatrics received N250 from the Paediatrics Association of Nigeria. This is for real. 

I wish we all know how hard it is to study to excel in our classes, because it is only then that we would reward the best of the best in our educational system. Sad thing is most of these organisations have the best graduates working for them so it beats  my imagination on how this same people come up with dumb ideas such as rewarding sex and fun as against education. Education which led them to the zenith of their careers in the first place.

  1. Fans of betting in Owerri received encouragement to
    keep on betting when a young man won himself a life changing sum of N30 Million Naira in a Bet9ja game
    he played with N100! One hundred Naira! Imagine!

    This happened last week at one of the popular betting centers owned by a guy named Vicki who is also
    popular in his own way in the betting business. His office is located
    at the Akwakuma Junction, Orlu road. I gathered the game had an extra 400k on top
    and the winner was said to have given it to the friend who borrowed him the
    N100 he used to play the game. A lot of people have been amazed by the game and
    are studying it to understand what the young man (who
    is now at large for reasons you should know) was thinking when he placed the bet.
    His luck might rub of on them. I got the code from one of
    them who showed me how to login and check it (I
    don’t bet so I didn’t know how …lol).
