@DrOlusesan Just to buttress your points, I want to speak specifically in relation to what Nigeria has done for me and my contemporaries in terms of education. Forgive me for piggybacking on your tweets to express my thoughts. I attended FGC Warri in the 80's. I finished SS3 in
1989 and got into university in 1990. As with most people, my secondary school classmates and I have a WhatsApp forum where we chat and keep up with each other's lives since most of us reside in various parts of earth.16 of my classmates are medical doctors. Of those 16,
only 1 studied for MBBS outside Naija. Out of the 16 only 7 live and practice medicine in Naija. One day when we were debating furiously on our forum and some of my classmates were of the opinion that Nigeria had done nothing for them, I broke it down like this. I asked the ones
Who are doctors how much the average American trained medical doctor (not sponsored by parents or scholarship grant) owes in student loans at the end of his training and they said at least $250k. I then asked them how much they owed at the time they graduated from university
With their MBBS degrees and the general answer was zero Naira. Now that is just the class of 89 FGC Warri. There are likely going to be at least 8-10 doctors on AVERAGE in each set of FGC Warri from at least 1980 to 2000. I just want to use that 20 yr period as a sample.
Imagine how many there would be from ALL the federal government colleges. Just imagine how many medical doctors Nigeria has paid to be educated in that 20 year period. I got into Unical in 1990 and my main friends were medical students even though I was studying
Political Science (I later left Unical in my 2nd year to start afresh with Law at Bendel State University, Ekpoma) and I hung around them a lot. One of them just confirmed to me that he estimated all the monies he had paid as fees throughout his stay there and that he didnt pay
more than N12k. His parents spent N12k as fees for his medical degree. This is just for doctors ooo, I never add lawyers, engineers, architects, surveyors and so forth. So when people say Naija hasn't done anything for them I just laugh. When we criticize we should do so
From a place of tough love because we want the country to get better not from a place of self hate and low self worth. This country has done and continues to do a lot for us and we should continue to fight for it to get better. Pardon me once again for burdening you with this
long tweet. There are many, many areas in which PMB's govt can do better. We should continue our to hold their feet to the fire with constructive and well meaning criticisms not self loathing, unproductive and unpatriotic missives.
