The education system in Nigeria
needs a total revolution and re-branding.
We need an education system that will
accommodate our cultural values.
Our culture should be rooted in our education
for if education is the foundation of every modern society
then it shouldn’t be treated lightly
the way the Nigerian government treats it
The American dream which houses
what America stands for
is embedded in it education system,
the dream that you can be anything you want
but in Nigeria reverse is the case.
The Nigerian education system
frustrate, strangle and sniff the life out of your dream
You dare not like Obasi Shaw
submit a rap album as your final year thesis
you will be labeled a fool that has spent his entire years
in the university learning nothing, but they would clap and award you
if your final year is a well recycle old ideology.
The world is changing and as long
as we continue to study things that don’t fit
into the Nigerian culture we will always be a third world country
we need new ideas fresh brain to take on educational portfolios
not the old brains tied to practice and mere traditions
