“Nigeria is Building a Generation of Illiterates“ – Wole Soyinka
Nobel laureate, Wole Soyinka in a speech he made at launch of InnoCreativa Youth Hub 2030 by Creative Youth Community Development Initiative (CYCDI) expressed his dissatisfaction at Nigerian youths.
“We are building a generation of illiterates,” he said.
He particularly referred to internet trolls who write and comment on issues without knowledge.
Read His Statement Below:
“They are waiting for Wole Soyinka to lead a march to Aso Rock. It is about time to get off your feet and stop writing rubbish on the internet about things you do not understand. I do not know how to describe the new generation beyond a generation of internet trolls.
“Nigerian youths are full of spunk outside, but when they are inside Nigeria, they are full of gas. We are building a generation of illiterates. They are the first to comment on the internet on issues they are ignorant about. When you talk about education, I get texts from the new generation and can’t believe these texts are from the youth.”
