The Survival Of The Youths As Leaders Of Today

The Nigerian youths are living the future of the past already. It is a more multifarious world now remember and challenges are even more wholly immeasurable. Let's rejoice because we are not as bad as they say after all. It is imperative to assert that we are not where we dream or deserve to be and yes, it could be better but it way supersedes the cynics' conviction about us. We are beyond the halfway mark, far from our dream land but nothing close to the skeptics conception of us.

They perceive us as indolent silhouettes and mannequins, metaphorically speaking who are incapable of championing an initiative but that's not us, far from it. We are the new order, the electronic age generation who do not necessarily follow suit or script, semi-formal, work lesser hours, sometimes spend profligately, gritty juveniles, laugh at empty jokes and still love to meet new people.

We are there, the new youth is alive and ripe for leadership, we have shown our unlimited capacity in as much as many aspect of life. At half a decade of age, our invaluable efforts cut across all ramifications. From the health sector, to the educational system, the industrial sector, food and drinks, technological advancement is modern, science world is widely dominated, textiles, construction and engineering is dominated by our agility and character. The list is endless.

So, this may lead me to ask; why the fallacy and hoax about the lack of leadership character amongst us? Gibberish talks you might want to agree. But in reality, it's a simple phenomenon of never give a lawyer's job to a dentist. We have youths who have excelled beautifully in their chosen fields and all we need to do is choose carefully the meritorious character with the top agility and leadership dexterity to lead us.

Youths have liberated nations and emancipated the citizenry. Youths have led wars and conquered. Youths have set foot on the moon, orbited the earth and lived aboard space stations for extended period of time. Youths have consummated so much for humanity, why will the leadership in the Nigerian structure be an exemption.

We can't keep looking akimbo when the leadership office becomes vacant, we can't keep maintaining the passive mode at critical times, we can't hold on to the dormancy state when much is expected of us. Leaders of today! Tomorrow is today! Let's put our acts right, let's hustle and join the tussle for the office of the premier in our different realms, our provinces have to be dominated by the youthful aura instilled in us by nature. This is the defining moment in this period of our existence, let's go all out and dominate our species.

Time for the youths is now!

The Trump Card

The greatness of America cannot be over emphasized but lacking prominently is Ethics and Value. Long wallowed in time immemorial extinction.

The American election campaigns played host to too many unethical rulings, all manners of slander, exhuming of archives and encroachment of privacy. It did went over the bar. I remembered Donald Trump once threatening Ted Cruz of being involved in his wife's nude photographs which resurfaced online and in retaliation he would spill the beans of Ted Cruz's wife too. It was that bad.

He went vulgar on Hilary at some point, called her all sort of names.

Then came the Access tape, where he was heard bragging about groping women and other allegations of sexual misconduct and assault. Pre-election polls rated Trump bleak with the women folks.

But needless to say, all these factors were stage shy when it came down to the manifestation of the people's franchise. He won nonetheless. And it was on record that a large chunk of the white women voted Mr Trump and he won in Pennsylvania, a state that had voted Democratic since 1992.

He was spiteful of women sometimes or may be he wasn't, may be he was being intuitive and lacked second thoughts on key issues or may be he was play-acting, playing out a script; the Trump card. Either way it worked out just well for Trump and team.

Left in awe of these revelations, I'm tempted to ask: would this have worked out in Africa, Nigeria precisely? The answer cannot be farfetched. You completely remove your ethics and morals garb, gab conceitedly and still get the nod and 'dab' of the majority. Awesome. Isn't that a drive against the odds.

I hope his manner of historic feat against all foresights, seers, analysts, predictors and expert reviews is adopted into the curriculum as a basis for political campaign. Get-the-ticket-at-all-cost tactics. He has even greater task ahead of him, raising the wall don't come about that easily, you make even more enemies.

I hope he makes America great again!
