I have read most of the comments online on these cut-off marks. Largely, most are missing the real deal: the UBE and broad funding of basic education in Nigeria are designed per student. In other words, resources are evenly distributed. What that means is that if governors in Yobe are producing students that need a score of 2 to be admitted when Abia students need 130 on the same per student budget, it is fair to ask ICPC and EFCC to get the Yobe governors to explain how they spend the funds.
Don’t forget this is one of the major problems leading to Yoruba Nation!!
Does this quota system look normal or fair?
This is how we ended up with too many idiots in power sir.
The quota system is skewed in favor of the Fulanis in power.
When a knucklehead with 2-points from Yobe or 45-pointer from Borno gets accepted, but his age mate from Lagos with 132-points does not get accepted, and starts struggling through life, we say na family curse, fast forward a few years, the 2-pointer and the 45-pointer graduate have become interns at the corridors of power or get sent to police academy or military college, and become oga, while our boys and girls have to continue to struggle to make sense of life the system is taking them through in the same time frame. Fast forward again, the interns have now become appointed advisors, ministers, DGs, and with a few more years they are running for elected offices.
This is why some of us support and advocate for Yoruba Nation, or else we will not recognize the SW (Yoruba Land) in 50yrs if this continues. We can’t and we must not continue like this.
We have a bunch of shallow-thinking elders but NO visionary leader yet. Maybe there are among us and they’re just in hiding. Maybe there are and their voices have just been drowned and dwarfed by the mega noise of derailers in our midst. This shouldn’t spell doom for us IF and ONLY IF we can still find ways to just unite the “available” selfless, and willing generational thinkers among us, and ignore these bunch of self-acclaimed YN leaders who are actually short-sighted saboteurs pretending to be well-meaning leaders.
There is an absolute need for a REFERENDUM or at the very least RESTUCTURING for us to have a better, fairer and greater Nigeria, otherwise, let each go their separate ways.
