SHOCKING AND APPALLING STATISTICS! “By 2006 87% of children that sat for NECO and WAEC exams failed. By 2007 it had grown to 89%. Well, the last results that just came out, for the first time in Nigeria, 98% of the children failed math and English. 98% of every hundred children that sat for the exams that had dreams of becoming something, only two of them passed. This is a nation that the official language is in English, it is not Pidgin English; and 98% of our children could not pass that language.How can we build managers of the future if the future cannot read and write? You’ve got dreams of companies you want to own, those great multinationals. Well tell me where are you going to get your staff from if 98 of every 100 children you will need to hire cannot pass? Don’t you understand? Where are you going to get your customers from when the average income of the people that will need to be your customers will probably be between 0 and 25,000 Naira? Why do I say so? The more you learn, the more your earn. . . .” ~Fela Durotoye

This is an eye opener for us all,there are just some things that humble and this is humbling beyond words,We are the leaders of tomorrow lets join hands and make us better
