The Nigerian society and their college
the Nigerian society and their college is an article I would our Nigerian youth to embarrassed but it can be helpful to other countries because it speaks for a general sense.
it is not only for Nigerian, but it is also incorporative.
Why did society define who we are meant to be?
the society has succeeded in defining many people and has misled them with their fakes high standard that has never benefited them anything.
Was everyone meant to be in the college environment?
A question that I have asked myself as many times as possible.
College was not meant for everyone but society has made everyone believe that it is, now society grades everybody’s importance based on college.
People still need skills as a matter of urgency and fact.
It was well obliged for one to be learned, still, society has nothing to offer to graduates.
Most graduates become lost after their school and their situation turns to the worst, meanwhile, it was not meant to be so.
Genders and college?
The society encourages women to go to school and colleges nowadays
Women after college, 96% only think of becoming a housewife.
That is why most ladies after colleges get married off to a man and put the certificate to rest.
The society wanted us all to go to school but doesn’t provide us what to do after school.
The society said it is good for both to go to school but unconsciously designate powers, authority and all the necessary work to the men.
Check the Categories that society has placed us on
The society has already categorized each of us right from the inception.
In an underdeveloped country, 0.01 percent of ladies go to school but don’t have a utility application of the school they are going to.
This makes them rely on their counterparts on all basis.
The society has already determined that few will use their heard-earned certificate and vast knowledge in applying to society.
The society has already determined those that will serve others and the ones people will serve.
It is said that the balance must be maintained.
The society decides and pick the talented and dumps the untalented.
He decides who get preferential treatments and others that do not.
The broken chain
Some have broken away from the natural order.
They are the ones fighting the storm.
They refuse the world to choose their destiny for them.
There are those that are mostly untalented but refuse to accept the category that the society has placed on them.
There are selected individual that fought the natural order, most of them are well known across the nation.

Thomas Alva Eddison, who tried to produce a light bulb for 999 times but failed all of them, of course, the last try which was the 1000 time was a success.
Masashi Kishimoto (岸本 斉史, whose work for naruto was rejected many times from different producers for so many reasons
There are many of these folks around the world, maybe because their ideas were more sophisticated, more refine and even incomprehensible to the people the society discarded them.
It is for you to prove them wrong and remain at the top.
Our very famous musician Wizkid, many People thought he would not make it in life and probably in music also, but he proved them all wrong.
People also thought the famous musician Davido would not succeed in the industry, after all, he didn’t have the natural voice but here he is making it.
what about Famous Burna Boy, how many times did he try so hard before his light could be seen in the world
Fear between success and failure
Many people who failed to act when they had their chance was probably because of fear.
The fear of the unknown has placed us on a category.
In the end, it was not society that placed you where you are but your fears did.
Ladies become afraid of not getting married after college days are over, that they end up not using their talents, gift, and hard work they had acquired over the years.
So they run off with guys they believe will take care of them, meanwhile, it was their worst choice.
The New age
Ladies are not meant to be housewives they are meant to be entrepreneurs.
They go to school to make optimum use of the environment they came out from as well as their qualifications.
Many of the girls are doing better and are respected also.
People like Linda Ikeji, and so many entrepreneurs, their stories are so thrilling and exhilarating that it gives hope to the hopeless most of the time.
College and society
College is meant to be for enlightening the society which has made everyone believe that after college there must be work and money
Nobody wants to understand the love for knowledge and deep experience again.
Nigerian society gave people a prestigious course to study instead of a loved course.
The society makes young scholars impatient of waiting for the right time and the course to go to school.
It has also given them a choice of, “wait forever or take the one you’ve seen already”.
Advantages of society to college
The society helps shape the way college is meant to be executed.
Good society with an enormous culture has contributed to the development of the college.
A good society produces competent men and women who end up contributing great service to college by becoming a teacher and lecturer.
A college is made up of societies and it is also included in a bigger society itself which contributes financially as well as morally to the college student and the smaller community.
Disadvantages of society to college
If the society is bad it automatically affects the college, a corrupt system adheres to a corrupt system too.
The society inflicts pains to the students by valuing one course over another.
This makes other courses look unimportant and undeveloped for utility usage.
Bad society steals from the college instead of supporting it.
The Nigerian society has no specific norms on how to run a college.
That is why the college is so corrupt and not productive at all.
Society designs the education system.
So when a society is valueless it produces college that is valueless also.
