What All Nigerian Youths Should Take Note of As Some Igbo Youths Raise Awareness About A Damaged Road

Some smart Igbo youths in the south East have really gained the heart of many Nigerians after they humbled themselves to raise awareness over the terrible state of a road in Imo State. Below are some pictures showing how far these youths went to draw the attention of the government to the bad road:

According to Linda Ikeji Blog, these youths decided to raise awareness after the road got neglected for a long period of time. 

This road has been identified as Nekede-Ihiagwa road and the road has remained in this bad state for over some months now.

It was alleged that the president of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari, will commission the road during his visit to the State. But the youths got so surprised that the road was not commissioned during President Buhari visit to Imo State. The youths decided to draw the attention of the government to the road through pictures.

In my opinion, I think these youths have laid a legacy and shown a path that other Nigerian youths should follow. 

One thing all Nigerians should learn from this, is that protest and violence is not the only way you can generate awareness. I have come to realize that most Nigerians are so quick to protest once they notice something going wrong. Some Nigerians will even be violent, all in the name of generating awareness or passing a message to the government.

These youths have shown all that you can still generate awareness without any form of protest or violence.

With the level of reactions these pictures have generated online, I think in no long time, those in authority will act of this.

As a reader, what do you have to say about this?
