The last generation, got admission on merit, Jobs on merit, without knowing anyone or being friends with well-placed individuals or knowing people who know someone.
They were opportune to attend good schools, many of them sitting in their father’s compound or attending to their farms or fathers farm in the village, or where ever they are, were called/invited for interviews, scholarships and were scrutinises base on the formula available at that time,
They enjoyed life, did things as at when is due, the Government cared for them, the little they could do to make life comfortable for them with the level of system and structure on the ground.

Their poor illiterate parents produced, Doctors, Engineers, Scientists, Accountants, Lawyers, Architects, Nurse, Journalist, Professors of yesterday and part of today whom, we will refer to as grade 1 Group.
the grade 1 group struggled on their own after Primary 6 or WASCE to become notable personalities. With the valuable treasures their parents give to them, part of it was, contentment, truth, trust, and hardworking, which produce integrity,  Most of them trekked to school barefooted, done with a meal a day and went to farm or do itinerant trading after school to survive, being  happy with available things for them then,,,,,

Now that  Grade  of professional  produced lower grade children with mentality don’t want my children to go through what i went through, without knowing that what they went through really made them strong people they are today, rather they pampered and helped  their children in their home works or home assignments from nursery school through secondary schools to higher institutions. Members of Grade 2 are chauffeur driven to very expensive schools and they watched Nickelodeon, Musical videos and do a lot of Pinging, spending more time with people far off than people close by after school. Their parents help them in doing their assignments. One important phrase at the back of their parents mind is that, I don’t want my children to go through what I went through in life.(to them, they feel, they suffered thru life)……..
