heIn the simplest words possible, an average Nigerian is ‘unintelligent’ despite their level of education.
Unfortunately, only not up to 50 per cent of Nigerians are aware of this average unintelligence.
Arrogance, ego and the ‘Giant of Africa’ syndrome leaves a good number of Nigerians myopic to the nation’s core problem: quality education. And so, as the time progress, despite great heights Nigerians attain, the average Naija person is unintelligent.
Grace to timely and conscious initiatives, maybe Nigeria’s average intelligence rate can be increased. 2017, saw the Nigerian Union Bank’s centenary celebration. The event was marked with a focus on education.
In the 16-minute plus speech, Dr Modupe Adefeso spoke about the solutions for teaching the future. According to Dr Adefeso, Nigeria’s educational system needed a literal turn around of procedure. The education section needs to be occupied by the very best.
Unhappily, the reality of education faculties in institutions overflows with rejects from other departments and low-scoring students.
These same low=performing students graduate to occupy teacher, lecturer, professor and instructor roles in educational institutions. A sad cycle of national crap.
