Checkout 5 Problems Nigeria Youths are Facing
According to recent research, Nigeria is a blessed nation, unfortunately not everyone sees it. Although I agree that many factors can predispose one to either being a success or a failure. Here are list of problems Nigeria youths are facing.
So in my little years on earth I’ve found out that these few problems constitutes reasons why many youths do not excel.
1. Financial Home training
They say charity begins at home. Most parents rarely teach their kids financial education. Many parents have through the course of their lives made financial mistakes that made them failures. In as much the world now moves in a fast pace dynamic way. Most poor parents rarely inculcate financial discipline and intelligence to their kids. They still believe that academic excellence is the best way to riches.
2. Misplaced Priorities

The things we desire to have as a youth never goes out of fashion. Things like clothes, sex, technology, housing e.t.c.

5. Looking at the bigger picture
Most youths don’t see beyond their nose. They are just about now and today. Rarely thinking about the future and what it holds.
We are all created to serve God and people. And when you serve people, you get something for yourself too.
