Youths are the leader of our great nation and they are expected for a change in order to move this country to a greater height. Nigerian youths are energetic, hardworking and intelligent. They engage in creative arts works, some are doctors, lawyers, some are oriented, career builders, some work for God ministries and many more. This youth are gifted with different talents which fully exploit the potentials in them. If they are not given the chance to exhibit the great talents, it will fade-out. In the new generation churches you likely find more youths than old likewise in schools because they believe the future lies on them.
However, the same youths are not left out with bad activities, they engage in smoking, drinking alchol, arm robbery, ritual act, lebanism, some selling their body for money and all sorts of bad act. Even in clubs most people find there are youths. You see females and males dress in an indecent manner to attract the opposite sex. They have turned our campuses for learning to cultism homes. Both girls and boys are involved in cultism, they forget their purpose on campuse but to shed blood. They allowed some of our political leaders to use them for their selfish interest. Our youths want to always be at the top without thinking of what it takes to get there. They intend to look for wealth by all cost which the consequence of it may be dangerous to their existence.
These miserable acts of our youths are so enormous that is why they dying day and night. They need your help for a change. Some of these ill-deed are cause by frustration where parent disown and abandon their children. Children who took to negative wayss of life are in most cases a victim of being left to find way for themselves.
Lack of proper co-ordination can affect the complementary towards achieving success. Love for money can hinder the success of greatness in the lives of our youth. Too much exposure of foreign movies can pollute the mindset of our youths because they are great imitator and they imitate the attitude of a popular model which might be unfavourable to the society. A childmay learn aggressive behaviour from what he/ she was been exposed to.
A way to transform the youths will makes their lives and our society meaningful.
The government should spend enormous resources on the development of the youths. Creation of job opportunities will make a useful tool in the society. State government, local government should contribute their efforts in improving and transforming the youths.
Parents should take more interest in the lives of their children.
Wealthy individuals private sectors should use their resources to support the transformation of the youth.
Schools and religion institutions should organise atransformation seminars and workshops training which will be measure to the success of the youths.
Every community should have a youth forum section where they agree and discuss the upliftment of their future and the nation.
The youths transformation can only be achieve from all hands. Do all within your power to see that the youth accept change, this will strengthen our nation. Let all see that new nigeria emerges from our youths. If the youths are lost the nation is gone
