Stories from movies and the development of technology have created a massive awareness among young people, there is too much of what our society is heading to we have already missed the part of the culture and looking forward to the globalizing environment.
As a global village where the smartphone has made it possible for us all to connect and share the experience.
The majority of our young people have been exposed to the benefits and privilege of staying overseas through this technology.
Our teachers and lecturers always set the reference to overseas as an example for good circumstances and used Africa as an example for bad circumstances, even in national politics we do always see the overseas country as a best practices continent, why we view Africa as a best-fit environment, all these teachings from schools, university and the leadership style of Africa came about with a just conclusion about Africa.
sadly, who will bring the change?
One evening among a group of young people in my local community, I overheard a discussion about a job opportunity and its terms and condition of service, after the discussion all I hard was, we must take the risk rather than die poor.
This keeps beating my imagination at the end of the discussion was taking risks rather than die poor.
This meeting must have some good news but with greater consequences that may lead to great success or total loss.
The following days, the mindsets have been occupied with traveling overseas, few of these people decided to keep their decision secrets, others went ahead preparing traveling documents some sell all they have including houses and other assets to raise this fund.
Some of the entire family has to contribute to this journey.
His death Muammar Muhammad Abu Minyar al-Gaddafi by the gun do not only destroy Libya but also a cause on the African population.
Traditional it is a tabu and abomination for a sitting president to be hunt down by the gun as this will bring about a difficult-to-end war. This tradition has been a bridge, today Libya servers as a crossing point to Europe since 2011
Migrants told the IOM Program Director at Niger Alberto Preato, that the desert is a bigger cemetery than the Mediterranean Sea.
In an unlicensed vehicle here we force ourselves to a deadly land, and inhuman behavior among people, we are being chased by smugglers, tribalistic and Jihadists. Many people lose their lives during this process.
The danger and the impossibility in this journey have been describing as Temple Run a journey of die or live but must endure all circumstances and pain for a better life and no turning back.
No turning back indeed, after all, we left nothing behind, but we are out here to make our family proud, said a migrant.
Migration is a right but must be done regularly to minimize life loss.
