SPEED DOESN’T MATTER, DIRECTON IS EVERYTHING

SPEED DOESN’T MATTER, DIRECTON IS EVERYTHING

In case you haven’t heard me say this, i repeat. “The ultimate height of a man is not from his head to the toe, but from his neck to the head”. That succinctly captures and summarizes the man Mr. Chinenye Nwaogu, the Abia State focal person.

Have you ever heard him speak on critical issues of any sort? If you haven’t, then you need to. Mr. Nwaogu no doubt is intellectually sound and coded. A man of intellect, perspicacity and wisdom. He has answer to any question being posed to him at anytime and in all places with stammering.

Earlier today The State focal person was a guest speaker at the first Mega induction and award presentation day ceremony organized by the National association of political science and public Administration students in collaboration with the student Union Government (SUG) held at the Abia State University school Auditorium, Uturu, with the topic, “SPEED DOESN’T MATTER, DIRECTON IS EVERYTHING”.

The students had yearned to hobnob with this intellectual giant as he shares some quality interactive moments with them.

Before his arrival, the auditorium had been filled to the brim. The curiosity could be felt at the countenance of these students, as his triumphant entry was greeted with much ovation. Trust students anyway.

What does an average Nigerian youth need? Not speed, but simply the right direction to go. They need a dependable and reliable guidance and councillor. They need a mentor and a teacher. They need a role model, a paragon, an exemplar and one they can comfortably and conveniently call their hero. They need regular orientation and reorientation. One who can profer them with the right attitudinal and behavioral therapy. That’s what an average Nigerian youth need and that’s the antidote to the several restiveness in our contemporary society.

They want the leaders to be accessible and reachable. In all, the demands of these generation nexts aren’t much. Mr. Chinenye Nwaogu understands all these and more about them because the headmaster they say, was once a school boy.

As his address was going on today, one could hear the sound of a pin drop on the ground, as there was absolute calm, decorum, and quietness from the students, signifying that the message was being understood. They wished he could stay longer. Like Oliver Twist, they needed some more. But tight schedule won’t allow him stay longer. A little here, a little there.

Mr. Nwaogu had since left Uturu, however the impact of his visit at the citadel of learning today will be cherished and felt by the students for a very long time to come.

An Igbo adage sums it up this way, If the sick was being provided with this type of pills, he would have since recovered from his ailment”
