Tertiary education ; not for all

Year in year out, millionons write the joint administration and matriculation board exam hoping to be admitted to tertiary academic institution. These millions cut across every size, age, tribe and status. They all have several backforce to aspire tertiarry education.

This prompts one to ask. Is tertiary education for all?off course everyone would instantly yell “yes”.before we answer that, we should note that tertiary education difers from literacy. Everyone should learn how to read and write but not everyone should attend a tertiary institution.

Two basic factors should be considered before one undergoes tertiary education.one is interest. Are you the type who hates reding? Do you dislike assignments ?can u spend one month without scaning newspapers,magazine etc?if your answer is yes, then you have no buisness with tertiary education. Such person will end up involving in all crook examination malpractice to pass.
He shoild go pursue your interest like wizkid and 2face.

The second major factor is capability. Were you alwayss bottom in class?can you speak and write fluently,did you rewrite Waec three times before getting 5 credirts? If your answer is yes, then you have a big problem educationally.however,with extra hardwork and interest,you can make it.

There are other factors which disqualifies one from enroling into tertiary education.not everyone is talented in reading and writing.some are gifted to work with their hands. They should focus on trade or vocation.
what is the point of wasting four years + aasu years + NYSC chasing a course one is very poor at.with the high rate of school fees,one should chanell money instead in an investment.

Examine yourself.choose wisely. Pursue university education and graduate halfbaked almost sure of failure or follow alternate route almost sure of success

Hypertension on the high? Here are top 10 tips to get it down and keep it down.

Sharing is caring!

Seven in 10 adults are at a greater risk of stroke or heart attack because their blood pressure is too high. Desk jobs, lack of exercise and eating salty fast foods have contributed to the problem, even among the young. If your level is consistently at or above 140mmHg/ 90mmHg (referred to as 140 over 90).

Love the police

Nigerian police force They should protect us, but how do we treat them?

Obviously, a LOT of things are wrong in our nation BUT we must REJECT the temptation to look away from our meaning, our honour and our dignity simply because we want to underscore our struggles.

This is a pointer to a consciousness within us that SEARCHES FOR MEANING AND FULFILLMENT even right IN THE MIDST OF PAIN AND STRUGGLE.

This is IMPORTANT- society MUST find its rhythm and balance in the INDIVIDUAL CONTRIBUTION of every stakeholder in the system. INDIVIDUAL RELEVANCE IS THE STRENGTH OF COLLECTIVE PEACE. And this brings us to an issue of collective concern – THE POLICE FORCE. Yes! The police force.

Kenyan president Uhuru Kenyatta signed a bill into law Tuesday that makes it legal for men to marry multiple women, even if it is without their wife’s consent.

Capital FM reported that female MP…
