Obama holds summit on college costs saying as follows;
- A College degree is the surest path to a stable middle class life
- We do not strive for equal outcomes, we strive for equal opportunities.
- We want to restore the promise of upward mobility that is part of America.
In attendance were College leaders, state government officials, business and non-profit organisation executives.
Now comparing his emphatic position and the ambition of his government can Nigeria say the same when corrupt ASUU and Politicians are in bed together and the basic educational requirement needed to hold a political office in Nigeria is O’level and it does not matter if you forge it?
What is the vision of this administration whose education Minister seems to be in a locked fist with Amaechi over the soul and heart of River State instead of education in Nigeria.
If we believe Obama and agree that a college degree is the surest path to a stable middle class, what the hell are the many illiterate social inadequate politicians doing in leadership in Nigeria? Are we likely to have the equal opportunity Obama talked about and how with these people in place.
As they say a snake can only bear a snake so we need to begin to look into our leadership class and weed out the bad and the ugly. These will open doors for the true patriotic middle class of the type Obama envisions emerging and leading us to our destiny.
