In particular, we are targeting parents and organizations involved in providing parental responsibilities, as well as governments form part of the key groups that are being sensitized by TERRIFIC HEADLINES to play proper roles in taking Nigeria and the younger generation to the ‘Next Level’. This noble objective conforms to the very pertinent issues raised in the attached proposal as a unique and innovative idea that seeks to educate the citizenry to play greater premium to preventive, over and above reactive options.
WHY ARE FAMILIES & RELATIONSHIPS CRASHING? An answer that covers this broadly is the fact that lack of misunderstanding of the values associated with the first institution created by God who ordained the marriage of a man and a woman.’ Jonathan L. Perz, a United States preacher wrote that: ’The family was God’s first institution, but today, man seems to think it is the worst institution. In the beginning, God created man and woman and joined them together for life. It is believed that civilization has played a huge dysfunctional role in damaging what God put in place with even priests liberalizing the Scriptures to do violence to commandments of the Creator. This development is indeed a very dangerous one because the world will never know peace and sustainable progress for as long as humanity continues to erode all values associated with the family.
THE WHOLE WORLD IS WAITING FOR AFRICA: I appeal to our young people that the situation may not be as hopeless as you may think. All you need is patience, quite determination and the willingness to build. In 2011, a major global investment firm identified Mexico, Indonesia, Nigeria and Turkey (abbreviated as MINT) as four countries likely to become part of the ten biggest global economies by the year 2050, because their large populations means there would be many young people and a strong workforce. Nigeria’s numerous rich natural resources plus the oil and the well-regulated banking system, make it a good candidate for a strong economy. My dear young people, why not learn a vocation in addition to your degree and start your own business? With Chinese products gradually becoming expensive, Africa can be the next factory to the world to replace China. We can become the world’s solar energy headquarters if we could develop cheaper solar panels using our local materials. With so much land available, farming for export is a wonderful opportunity. Our young people should consider converting the internet and social networking sites to forums for sharing best practices with their overseas counterparts on how to modernize artisan professions like building, mechanic, tailoring, textile design, farming, metalwork, etc. The world is eagerly waiting for our products in the global market.—Dr. DK Olukoya.
