The time of youth is the period between childhood and adulthood. The nation is a country considered as a group of people living in a certain territory under one government. We have to know that ‘building’ here means not masonry constructed, but the development of the nation and the future of our country. The vision of our country lies in the hands of our youths. They are filled with tremendous and towering ambitions.
It will be a great waste of human resources if these youths are not given the opportunity to exercise their talents. This beautiful land needs these youths in order for our soil to become a brighter one.
The primary role of young people is to get good education in order to become better citizens of tomorrow. If there is no proper education, it must reflect on the society. The youths need to learn skills to do the job that their country’s economy needs.
They also need to know how to read, write, think, understand, analyse, and discuss the issues that Nigeria is facing. The entire success of the nation depends on the youths. However, in order for continuous success to take place; it is the government’s responsibility to provide the youths with proper facilities for getting equipped with the knowledge of the modern era. It is time for Nigerian youths to do away with those old fools who have become useless to our country.
Youth is the spring of life. It is the age of discovery and dreams. They have the power to transform the nation into a better place. They also have the ability to lead their fellow citizens into the right direction. Youths are fighters. They can fight for identity in the society, equality, the homeless, unemployment, exploitation, poverty and other problems which Nigeria faces today. As youths, we need to stop depending on our parents for everything. We need to be able to think by ourselves.
All of us hope for a world full of opportunities, so only great minds can conquer and become better individuals. We need good morals and values to handle conflicts in a positive way. We have aspiring doctors, entrepreneurs, scientists, and who knows; maybe the next president. Illiteracy is a major problem around the world. About ninety percent of the people who reside in villages are illiterate. They need help. Someone has to pull them up. We young people can be of immense help.
The role of the youth is the most important in today’s time. We have underplayed ourselves in the field of politics. Youth are strong forces in social movements. We are problem solvers. Our nation needs us to resolve most of our problems. The nation is facing a lot of problems, and I believe that we youths are capable of solving them. We just need to be given a chance to prove ourselves. Youths have the power to unite individuals in the different ethnic groups.
Racism is an ongoing issue around the world. Individuals are fighting against each other because of the complexion of their skin and the texture of their hair. Religion is another issue. The youths can convince their fellow man to live in peace and love. All of us are one and we should not allow these little differences to push us away from one another. There are also a lot of crimes taking place. Women are being killed by their abusive husbands. People’s homes and businesses are being broken into.
All of these crimes and violence need to stop. The youths have the ability to bring about a change in their country. Youths have the ability to face any challenges and problems. They have a positive influence on their fellow young people. They are able to teach them the positive things in life. The wise youths that we have out there should be taken into consideration. Some of them, though educated, are unemployed. They should be given the opportunity to expose their intelligence to the world and make themselves into something good. We youths need to stop running after politicians who have nothing to offer us.
