Look around you. What do you see? Young men and women- the teens,isn’t it? They are not only within your reach. They are every where in the world.In villages you find them but quite a good numbers in urban areas.They are so demanding because of their prime years and they are extremely expectant.They want a new and good life.They want to excel in whatever they do.The youths are the back born of the world,so they say and indeed they are movers of all things if they are put to good use.They are actually Jumbo jets.The people you are looking at can help you politically,socially and economically change your country and at the same time they can make it difficult for you to live in it.Am I sounding threatening? It is for you to decide what is the missing link,that can make matters worse for you and those who deal with young men and women.It is the energy within the youths that is left untapped or used inadequately in the personal growth and the advancement of the nations,I suggest.Many do not have skills to fetch for themselves and their relations.They meander every where for the ends to meet and survival and usually find themselves unsuccessful in their endeavors and their dreams expected to be a reality become instead a hoax.
Those who have gone to school and eventually obtained paper qualification do not find jobs easily and others do not get them at all.This is common in A Africa where every thing is run basically on the foundation laid down by those white people who ruled them during their colonial days.Unemployment is actuary the missing link.It is beyond doubt that the Executive(s),the Judicially(s),and the parliament(s)hold the planing wheel of such nations,but one wonders why the young go hungry,lack basic need of life and yet out number the categories of other citizens.
One person told me that planing units in many countries are there in name and serve no purpose at all and the other one told me that most countries largely depend on hand outs that they add very little to their National Domestic Product and that those in political positions at any levels are egoistic that they cannot stretch their hands to equally distribute the public wealth or have the guts such wealth to go beyond their relations.What do you have to say anyway?
Yes! the bridge between the rich and the poor that has existed since time memorial ought to be bridged.Usually you find a young man or woman working in a private company or government institutions being paid peanuts in form of wages and salaries.Others stop at the food they eat while at work but the monetary independence is for other people.You find young men and women in security disorganization-guarding at the gates of the industries and shops others actually guard the boundaries of their countries against foreign invasion and provide the internal surveillance and security As well but they decry of less pay and partiality in the distribution of assets that can be turned into money for their benefit.
That young man who dig in your back yard farm,how much do you pay him?What about that young woman who baby sit your child while you are at work and champion the cleanliness of your home? Will you be happy if the money you pay them are paid to you at your place of work?
You are rich simply because you unsparingly used the resources of your country the citizens put in your jurisdiction to your advantage.You are rich simply because your country paid for your education in the 50s and you do not care and you are not bothered after all you are in politics and at the financial decision making table in the company your father started many years ago or you are a revenue collector or some other business man who have conspired for along time with revenue collectors and dodged the payment of official taxes.You are rich simply because you deepened your hand in the your nation coffers and body knew about it.
The youth are poor simply because they are deprived of every opportunity to earn wealth and they cannot cross the bridge to find you where you are.You have made it impossible and a taboo in the single word for them to do so.If you cannot help them cross the bridge the n remove the bridge.
Even a smallest unity of administration must have all embracing strategic plans that helps even the young (teens)to have a unity of exchange that makes them possible to acquire basic needs of life without to much ado.The economic village policies and the national must be practical plans for5 everyone.There is no need for developed countries to feel envy for the less developing countries and make their waters of economic growth turbulent.There is no need at all.The peopled living in less developing countries will move with the economically laid strategic plans put in place by their governments and the youths most especially will not became a thorn in the legs of such governments.At the lower levels governments must always come to examine the wages and salaries rates in the industries and The strategic plans put in place must tackle all spheres of life and must be all embracing.
As you need the funds to start or improve your income generating activities where you are,so is the youths.The teens have all considerable and perfect ideas that can gradually be put to good use for continued acquisition of daily bread but they lack the legal tender for exchange to do it.In presence of unemployment the youths in your country and in absence of assets for the youths to sell and get money in return,what do you expect them to do?Why don’t influence the authorities in your country to put in place a workable policy that will enable the government to allocate working capital to this class of people.Why?
This will enable the youths to keep themselves busy and generally avoid redundancy.Crime will become less as days turn into weeks and weeks turn into moths in the long run.The government will receive local taxes out of the youth will make- which money will be used to finance other government expenditures.Fund acquisition for the youth is very crucial and every ones responsibility.But funds without strings attached.
Help the youths to have a crime free generation.
