There is a need for the Northern elites to do something about the number of kid beggars that is increasing day by day in their region.
Am going to use the South west and South east as an example without reference to agitators such as OPC, IPOB, Mend or Avengers. They are all products of the issue am about to discuss.
It is not every family in the South east and South west that are rich and connected. But it is every family that ensures that their children do something meaningful.
In South west, when parents have no money and the child is of age, parents sit down and explain to the child when he can still be corrected to choose what he wants to learn, some choose brick laying, some mechanics, some plumbing, some will choose to be a Capenter. Once that is down, the parents will look for a master in that field and give the child to the master..

The South east will learn trading and so on.. I can’t say much on South east.. But I know they have merchants in trading.ADVERTISEMENT
Back to my issue with the north, the poor kids are mostly not taken care of, they beg for food to eat and sometimes carry the food you just bought at the restaurants if you try to blink an eye. And it is the same children that are given wrong doctrines to unleash mayhem since they have nothing doing, and there is no one to put them through.ADVERTISEMENTADVERTISEMENT
So if we must move together as one nation, there is a need to give those children a future.
Else it will appear that a region is developing its region, and another region is breeding destroyers. Such marriage must definitely hit the bed rock someday.
Marriage? Yes, our coexistence as a nation is a marriage and that is what makes us one Nigeria but each and everyone of us have their language. So for this marriage to work, the elites in the North should sit up! And ensure that poverty is reduced to the barest minimum so that these children can have a means of livelihood, else the marriage that produced Nigeria may expire someday.
I smiled when Bishop Oyedepo said, Lord if it is your will for Nigeria to break now, let it break. It is not the will of God for Nigeria to break, what will break Nigeria is if some people are ready to move forward and some are not…. What will break Nigeria is if some people have a mentality that Nigeria belongs to them…and because of that take what belongs to everybody and deprive others of what they should get. Nigeria belongs to every citizen of this country, it does not belong to the North, East, South or West…
