The Cost of #FuelSubsidyScam to my Generation
The House of Representatives Committee recommended that N1, 067,040,456,171.31 be returned to the FG’s treasury. According to the Minister of Youth development, Malam Bolaji Abdullahi 28M of the 67M youths like me are unemployed let alone those that are underemployed, yet our leaders both in the private and public sector ganged up to rape our economy of immense financial wealth. While those corporate octopuses filtered away our ‘subsidy’ funds, their cronies in the public sector continued to release funds with little room for accountability. Government consciously created a loosed environment that brought about lazy and overnight billionaires with no room for employment opportunities for my generation.
Monies that should have helped develop (when we have a responsible government) our comatose education system that suffers from a dearth of quality lecturers, irrelevant curriculum and plagued by incessant unwarranted strikes, funds that should have been used for enterprise and capacity building of my generation so we can be self employed and further create employment ,resources that should have been used for industrial development and massive agrarian scheme to drive employment generation where stolen by a renegade and dangerously unpatriotic few.
Thus, what do we have today? High voltage crime and violence rate because the hopes of many young people have given way to despair, ambitions have given way to wishful thinking, enthusiasm taken over by frustration, passion swallowed by hate, patriotism is virtually extinct and goals reduced to mere frustrated trials.
Today, millions of young people roam the streets in search of a future that has been taken away from us by our rogue leaders.
If there is anything this probe has highlighted, it is the very fact that my nation is a #SCAM!!!
