Please describe your vision of a world that works for everyone.
My vision of a world that works for everyone is one where there is freedom of speech, movement, access to basic amenities, etc and fairness, regard for the citizens, good governance, accountability and competence, integrity and solidarity, Democracy and Justice, protection of lives and properties, and compliance to the laws in the Constitution that governs the land.
What do you see as the most pressing problems facing the world today?
Our attitude towards money is the biggest problem faced by the world today. As the Bible says, “the love of money is the root of all evil,” truly, it is. Lots of the violence in our world today have proven to have the pursuit or abuse of money to be their root causes. In countries like Nigeria, kidnapping and banditry are the order of the day. People have resorted to taking hostage their fellow citizens all in a bid to make money. When you examine the lives of the culprits, you discover that the money obtained eventually is invested in drinking, smoking, womanizing and all, sorts of uncouth acts. In recent times we have seen people go to extreme lengths of using their family members, or even their spouses, for money rituals. Thinking that was the worst, we realized a recent trend of people consuming excreta, and furthermore, making use of the menses stains on pants or even used pads just in a bid to make money. In most developed countries, cybercrime is the order of the day. People deploy such high levels of intelligence all for the sole aim of scamming other people. Immorality and waywardness are not only promoted but are the order of the day because that\’s the only way some know how to make a living. Educational pursuit has gone down the drain because the presumed essence as to why an individual should do so is to make money; so the society makes it seem. My question is, why not deploy this same level of intelligence in improving your nation, thereby making money from it? Why not look out for the root cause of penury in your environment and try every possible means to nib the bud at the end? Why not look inwards and rely on our creativity and hidden talents since a man\’s gift can make a way for him? The love of money has rendered prerequisite values required for uprightness and prosperity in a nation futile and is a menace that should be checked before the world goes on a standstill.
How do you feel these problems could best be solved?
First of all, the educational sector needs a whole lot of “overhauling.” We need to purge the system off of the mindset and thought systems it is propagating in individuals. We need to make sure that the right moral values we intend to see in our society are the values being passed on. We must take out time to thoroughly educate our young on what the right attitude to making money should be. We need to build up their beliefs in themselves and make them understand that they can do anything they put their mind to. We need to educate them on what the proper individual in society should be. Even more importantly, the elders of the land need to live by example and practice what they preach. They need to show to the younger generation that uprightness is achievable. They need to avail themselves to rebuke, correct, and ensure discipline amongst the younger generation. They need to speak in one voice against ill-mannered behavior in society. Lastly, our leaders need to create an environment that is favorable and encouraging to thrive. They need to create policies and laws that will improve the standard of living of the people. They need to keep to their words and show forth competence in all that they do. They need to abide by the law and uphold it to the latter. They need to have an interest in the growth of the nation at heart and promote equity and justice in the land.
My name is Egbuchunam Ngozika Amuche. I hail from Ika North East local government, Delta State. I attended the Federal University of Petroleum Resources, Delta State. I\’m the 4th born child of my parents. I\’m left-handed and about 5 feet and some inches in height. I love adventures and learning new things. I love to sing as well. One of my greatest desire is to grow to become an authority in my field of study. At the University, I studied Electrical Electronics Engineering. My time there helped me to gain more confidence in my academic ability, with my lecturers constantly challenging me to achieve more and set my goals high. I learned the correct procedures to analyze problems, evaluate findings and develop solutions to determine the best course of action. After school, I registered to go for NYSC and was posted to Dangote cement plc; which is currently my place of primary assignment. This experience has helped to give my academic studies an industrial perspective. I get to work alongside some superb people and have the opportunity of gaining first-hand experience of putting into practice some of the theories learned in my college lectures. I’ve worked under various supervisors and teams. The team encouraged me to put across my views and suggestions on the projects we were working on in industries that included Automation, Power Generation, Communications, and Manufacturing. I have enjoyed my time at the company and am pleased to say that I learn something new every day. I now fully understand the importance of listening to and understanding the requirements of clients, as well as appreciating how vital it is for engineers, technicians, and project managers to work together as part of a group. All my work experience and academic achievements to date now make me feel very positive about my future in the world of engineering.
