Permit me to Add COVID-Caution to Nigeria’s Unworkability in Almost All Sectors and Her Citizenry Doggy Styles in Chasing Productivity.
I listened to President Muhammadu Buhari (Cloned or Not Cloned) at the Comfort of my Home Last Week without any Understandable Routine Pressure I would have faced if i were to be in the School Premises Commemorating my End-time Days in the University Community. Such Very Important Pressure that Engages you in A lot of Academic Attitude Could Many times Resist and Prevent you From Coherently Ingesting the Needed Vitamins Such Speeches could bring or Offer. Hitherto, I Wouldn’t say this pressure was not needed but it’s Necessary anyway.
According to His Excellency in His Pre-recorded Speech, It was Made Succinctly Clear to Nigerians at every walks of Life, Great and small, School and Unschooled, Powerful and the Commoner, Religious and Unreligious, the Professor and the Undergraduate and very Crucially the North and South to Understand whether we were Heading into Chaos or Not. But Angrily the myth behind this Speech being Made by the Country’s Highest Representative, after he Has said we were going to Await Rhetorically Foreign Researchers and institutions for Curative Aids and Vaccines to Relegate the Current Trend Called COVID’19 in Nigeria as a mark of Protection to her Citizens.
If I were to say, Let me Quote one of His Excellency’s Striking Speech, “We are in touch with these Foreign institutions as they work towards a solution that will be certified by international and local medical authorities within the shortest Possible time”.
Does it actually mean that his Excellency Doesn’t Trust The Nations Health worker’s functionality?, What has Happened to our Great Laboratories?, Where are our Nationally Owned Research Centers? what are Researchers in the Nation Left with?, Are we Going to Remain Incommunicado in terms of Responding to Such Attitudes? Who is Responsible for this? Does it actually mean our Racial Color Depicts our level of Evenness in Breakthrough Research?
A lot of Questions Like this are Put up to see that we properly understand what and what parcel of Meat has been left for the Rest of us Nigerians who might barely afford to confront the Nations Giants for some Bread given our Reclusiveness and taciturn behavior.
TRUST AS A CHALLENGE
On the Side of Trust, Looking at the Shape of Reasoning and Thinking-Behavioral Quest that Maternally Invades an Infant Birthed into the Nationality of this Countryside(by Genetic Inheritance), You could Understand, perceive and see that Structural Growth and Development in the Mind of such child would not be Trusted if The Maternal Dependence on international Approval is not Established. So we can Boldly and courageously Affirm that we were Born by the International world.
Corrupt Practices Befall Our Gigantic Nation, we hardly Trust our Art or Doings, how did we Start by Investing into wrong Evaluation Schemes by International Observers? All boils down to Lack of Self trust from the Country’s Olympus height down to the Poor Commoner.
Currently, I am studying a Sub disciplinary Course Inserted and Approved by the Nigerian University Commission (NUC) in Public Health Called “Public Health Laboratory Practice”. The NUC Requirements of this Course to Every Nigerian Institution Offering a Degree or Masters or Any kind of Certification in Public Health is to Help Those called under studentship to Build, Develop and Accelerate their Knowledge, skills and understanding in Public Health Laboratory Practices. This Measures and skills Are guided by Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), and several Reinforced Knowledge of Guides Needed to be Assimilated before Taking up a space to Research or Carry out a Task or Activity in a Public Health Laboratory.
But then, our Nation Only see Education as a Tool to Fighting for Societal Aid and Accumulating wealth used to accumulate more wealth good or Bad, Right or wrong, merited or unmerited. The issue of Trust Might have Made the federal government abandon the need to Listen to ASUU’s Reoccurring Decimals of Complaints for Proper incomes and series of pleas for Revitalization Funds for The University Structures which eventually will diffuse into our laboratories for Proper Staffing, instrumentation and Functionality at a Productive peak. But then are those Elected actually Aware by Notice, They’re are Depressed in Thinking productivity anyway!.
LAZINESS AS AN INDUSTRIAL EFFECT
On the Second Hand, Laziness Dues to First Hand Trust well mishandled. In a country having a population of over 150 milstone. and also Facing a COVID’19 threat that wore a Crown, of which would have been called a poor man’s disease if it didn’t put up such a Fanciful Crown by tormenting the Rich and socially established. Many Nigerians at Powerful Positions Having opted to assist In any means could have done well but Sadly it might seem that water is being Scrubbed (Rhetoric) on a Stone Rug.
Nigerians are Made to belief, Put to belief, Born and Reborn into a belief of “Bring food make we de Chop” lot’s of Activities are made to be known but sadly we are left to be Tray-fed in an economic Dark atmosphere where Everyone seek to be placed on Attractive Emoluments.
Even at Higher Institutions of learning, People Called into Duty be it Technologists or Practical Personnel forget the Ethics of Activity and Laws Governing Productive Outputs, they Blame His Excellency when such Arguments springs up and Regrettably this is during their Toe-time, Sadly it means Everyone Contributes to our Professional Training in Failure.
Nigerians in every sector must at all fronts learn to Strive hard in Creativity Pursuit which Develops even the instinct of an infant to Suck Productivity, Crawl in innovation and Walk at Growth. Forget social media and how it keeps disdaining and engaging our unborn Researchers Severally into Childhood activities that Lessen their Utility(Productive Utility) in front of their own very Duty, lately a KubOl Anonymous Scheme has been introduced on Social media Increasing Hate and Divorce among Happily Married Parties in the Educational Contraption.
Also Looking at this Area, where President Buhari Admonished about working for Possible Short time solutions against the COVID Virus, but how can we get this short time accurate solutions if we’re left with such Sets of Uneasy going unproductive Technocrats as branded in our Institutions?
A lot of Things need to be installed by Nigerian’s Citizenry Well Nourished by the President.
President Buhari Must Have to Empower the Trust of Nigerian Scientists and her Researchers by Empowering and Providing them with the Necessary Objects that’ll pose to be vital to combat this Pandemic so that at the End Workers of the Country’s Success will have a sense of Humor and belief to live in.
In all the Federal Government and all Arms of Government must give Priority to the Necessary bodies concerned to Help Give and Restore the folklore of Public Health sense of Understanding and also Apply and reduce foreign Dependency when these Intuitions are funded drastically.
PRISONING A PRISONER
Social Media as a Uncooked Parcel Used Vigorously as a Metaphor of Hope and Social Destruction as our Preachers Usually confer to us, Religion as an art that poses a Continuing Growth Struggle for Belief in This Country, GradeAcademics Where Students See Grades as Skills and Up through Evaluatory Tool in Achieving the Various Requirements expected of them by Nigerian Education Binding bodies, Unworkable but Unworthy Competitions in Various Fields towards Productivity, Eating the Humble Pie of Unwilling Virtue by some Set of Nigerians said to be Empowered by Wealth as a yard stick of Selection, these are they Only Meat left for Nigerians.
Like I titled the last parcel of this piece being “Prisoning the Prisoner”, the only Option for Nigerians are the Above where we will have to settle for the less and await a Day where True Freedom in Thinking will Manifest.
Conclusively, For Now, we’re left to Battle the Current Pandemic in Dependence and Hope the international communities informs us on when it’s time to Raise our heads with Our mouths Open for our own “Holy COVID Communion” for Survival.
