Acquisition of knowledge should not be an end in itself(which it is to a lot of nigerians),but a means to an end.The question now is,what is that end? We seem to falsely overcelebrate the means while we fall flat on using it for an end that should benefit us all as a people or race. Getting a degree or two is nothing but a start of a long journey to that end.One should only jubilate and celebrate when that end is reached successfully. So the question again,what is that end?What do we want to use the knowledge acquired(means) for?That is the big question. Waste it developing other people's civilizations and getting no credits for the trouble,or going back to develop our own civilization and be bathed with glory,against all the odds? Which one makes better sense?Which one commands more respect?
