One thing we should understand is that aside from the medical professionals and the scientists, we are not concerned about what happens.
The only reason a student should stick to the media is to learn a few tips to stay safe and inform friends and families. Truly concerned students are concerned with how they will get out of this trouble, by applying a questioning methodology
By trying to answer a few honest questions; what one needs and possible shortcomings, one ought to have realized that “how to get out this looming global recession” is paramount.
And this post is focused on sharing my personal thought about the post-COVID-19 era. Stories always have it that the Spanish Flu left the world restarted, with millions of jobs lost to the pandemic.
Why should you be Worried?
You might be probably living in a country that is still answerable to her colonial masters, through aids and loans. Most African countries give examples of nations where a PhD (certificate) cannot be equated with an American passport.
Should we continue to watch clueless generations toy with our future? The answer might not be as intended because outside politics, agitations and unlawful acts, youths can take the arms of skills and innovations.
Our countries might be seen as third world countries today, but the future totally depends on the decisions we make today.
