Child of Industry – Millions of people who study in our Nigerian schools either do not have passion for what they study or graduate without finding industries where they can practice and get gainfully employed from it.
This problem is multifaceted and is a major reason why Nigeria is not seen as industrialized but seen as an importation oriented nation who consumes but have nothing tangible to offer to both herself and the whole outside world.
So have we gone to schools without advocating the resuscitation of dead industries and planning for more industries to engage our ever growing population?
Have we blindly given this same economic slavery of importation to our children to suffer instead of teaching them to be inventors, producers, mass producers and industrialist?
These are questions that one of the most talked about books, Child of Industry by Obinna Uche Uzoije, is addressing and proffering solutions to.
Industrial revolution must begin from our schools.
We should start teaching our students how to process our raw materials and make them distaste the culture of exportation without processing.
