“Adulting” should be a course in universities

Although most elements are meant to be taught from home, church, other agents of society, schools, and institutions of higher learning, it is primarily the last mode of community learning before young adults do enter various industries.

In Nigeria, over the years, the NYSC National Youths Service Corps has been elated for its physically and mentally demanding training. At the same time, NYSC has its advantages and terrible flaws that threaten the continuation of the program. Why not the governing bodies of the education and youth empowerment system infuse these trainings and teachings in the classroom during schooling. Why wear college graduates in uniforms after failing to fully equip them with the reality of the society to which they are about to be introduced.

Yes Adult should be introduced as a course, among the subjects that should be taught are financial management, self-employment, nurturing relationships, spirituality, anger management, mental health, bodybuilding, healthy eating habits, l personal hygiene, political impacts, household management, survival hacks, etc. If taught, this crucial information needed for personal growth will play a huge role in building a greater nation.

But then, who is competent enough to teach it?
