They exist like they actually don’t. They are to me, unwanted and burning as they sizzle and fry to the bone like a chicken wing left on the grill of an outdoor barbecue. Pose this opinion to people and you will get countless crucifying answers, but who cares, if you talk, you die, if you don’t talk, you do. So, my opinion is that, the following undergraduate courses should be scraped and buried deep in the dust in Nigerian universities :
I KNOW SOME WILL KEEP THROWING ONLINE STONES AT ME AS I POUR OUT MY OPINION, I WILL KEEP DODGING THEM!!! BUT BEFORE I START JAM-TALKING, YOU MIGHT WANT TO CHECK IF UNDERGRADUATE COURSE OF STUDY REALLY MATTERS OR NOT.
- Philosophy : First on the list but not necessarily the most prior. I think they are of little or no usefulness in this society. Dodges stone . All they do is argue ceaselessly on whether God exists or not or try to prove an unprovable point saying “All humans are mad”. They are more needed in countries where confusion is the order of the day, scrap it!
Zoology : The reason behind this is not far-fetched. We have less than 200 zoos in Nigeria and you still feel like being a zoologist? Or you want to become a researcher for National Geographical Wild? Certainly not in a nation like ours. That course is meaningless, scrap it! Dodges stone
Social Work : Never heard of the course until someone told me it’s been studied in some of those sacred universities in some vantage locations at some remote areas in Nigeria. I still need someone to come and explain what and why it’s an undergraduate course in Nigeria. Scrap it!
Public Administration : Which public are we administrating? I just dey vex! I don’t want to talk much in order not to start crying. #EnoughSaid
Political Science : Who knows why ducks quacks don’t echo? No one! Same as how no one knows the head or the tail of this course. It’s useless. Scrap it! Dodges stone
Estate Management : And where is the estate? Most graduates of this course run abroad to get something done related to the course as it’s a total waste in Nigeria. Then if that’s the case, let them go and study it abroad and stop congesting our universities. Scrap it in Nigeria!
Religious Studies : If you want to become a pastor or alfa, God will call you. If you are in love with the holy book, you can read it. You don’t need to waste a whole degree on that. Scrap it!
Marketing : Everyone has a marketing strategy and built-in ability. Ask the market women. Though the course is more than that I know but at the same time, scrap it! Dodges stone
Botany : They just go about the bush testing leaves and weeding farmlands. Most of them graduate to become farmers. If that’s the case, let them study Agriculture. Scrap it!
Library Science : As useless as that ‘b’ in ‘tomb’, scrap it!
***Continues Dodging Stone***
So many courses on my mind but I decided to keep them to myself in order to avoid getting my head torn with online stones. Also, he who talks and chill lives to talk another day. #FattkayHerebySignsOut
