Bible Reading:. Ecclesiastes 5:10, 1 Timothy 6:10

Memory Verse:  For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. And some people, craving money, have wandered from the true faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows. 1 Timothy 6:10 (NLT)

Our boys whom we sent to the Universities to study are now living in hotels doing “Yahoo”, defrauding people. They are not studying. They are “sorting”. Bribing lecturers to pass. They only come to campus in convoys once in a while to show off. Guess what? Some lecturers are even worshipping them. Our teenage sons are now driving Benz cars in the University. They are now “happening guys” on campus. The houses our sons in Universities are living are flats and duplexes as against the self-contain that we used to know. Well furnished and so beautiful like the home of some state governors. Our sons are all married in the university but single at home.

Girls swarm around them, living with them, cooking for them, and doing all sorts of things with them and for them. These girls are our daughters whom we sent to the Universities to study. They are in every club and hotel in town. They are found in front of exotic cars, fastening seat belts, taking selfies, recording short videos and moving their tongues and lips like dogs. My recent research in Nigerian Universities opened my eyes to this current ugly reality. I weep for the future. These are teenagers, not even adults. Guess what? We still see them as children who know nothing. I don’t want to mention names of hotels in Ibadan, Lagos, Ijebu Ode, Abeokuta, Akure, Ekiti state where you will see your sons and daughters. They have been living there for weeks if not months. They are not going to school. These teenagers — boys and girls are abusing drugs. Not just hemp (igbo) but cocaine, tramadol and other hard drugs.

I had once boarded a vehicle with a young girl in Ago-Iwoye who had some crack (cocaine) in her purse. For a reason l did not know, the police officer that stopped us for a search didn’t search her but searched every other passenger. On the way, she brought out a drug, gently sniffed some and threw out the remaining through the window. I looked at her and paused, she also paused; both of us paused. I remained deaf and dumb until I got to my destination. Who will save this generation who painfully are our tomorrow and future of this country? We are sadly keeping quiet. Future Tears.

QuoteA man could have all the money in all the banks of the world and be worth nothing as far as God is concerned, if he were still living “to and for himself”!

Major Ian Thomas.
