Living in Sierra Leone is fine and great when you have all what it takes to survive. Sierra Leone portray truly the saying of Charles Darwin, who says survival of the fittest. In meaning only the strangest of the strong will survive.
In my quite moment I always think about the scaring report that was publish on UNDP-SL website, which state that eight hundred thousand people (youths) are actively in search of job. However, these youths are healthy, able, and qualified but they can not find job.
In a depensation of complete joblessness, the noun “dignity” is obsolete. In an instance of job offer that is suppose to be carried out by a BECE holder or a non school goers, here the case is different degree holder in communication or Business will compete too for that same job.
In such a case I see a society that produce things they don’t want and hoping to have something of un imaginary. Sometimes I asked myself are we still in slavery? The reason being a lot of articles have came up, pointing that slavery has being abolished.
In the former, some people were saying we have been librated which I say is not true from our ways of doing things.
Pending down this article, I am of the believe that the government will change this current dispensation. As things stand I want the government to note that there are lot of people going to bed hungry everyday.
I want also the government to not that many people these days are having lot of illnesses because of not having a job. Not having a job when you are qualified able and willing to work also has it on psychological effect which I want the government to note.
In that instance were you have acquired a certificate and that certificate cannot put food on the table is a cause for alarm.
Coming up as a Young man in this part of the world I had hardly hear people saying I want to be a police, soldier, and prison officer, now this has change as many careers aspirations has been alter along the line as there are no alternatives to make choices. Now you can get job of a bit higher magnitude in the police, soldier and prison, careers which were far not consider.
Government please up your game by encouraging more foreign direct investment. encourage the central banks and commercial banks to give more soft loans so many people will get themselves involved in business.
However, this condition or state of affair must look into seriously as to preserved our fragile democracy.
