    As a nation, salone have fallen prey to the impossible expectation that Sir Milton counselled against nearly 60 decade ago.

    A government by the people, for the people, and of the people is only as wise, as just, and as free as the people themselves;. Ignorance and indifference inevitably erode our freedoms and destroy our republic. It is not without cause that one national discourse in recent times has been so histrionic and hateful.

    At it core true education, or leadership is more than facts and figures;- It engages and enriches the soul. It rightly orients one to understand his or her place in the wider world, to pursue truth, beauty and perhaps most importantly to understand why the pursuit of these things matters, not just for occupational productivity, but to know how to live.

    It is this knowledge that makes self-governance possible. It is this knowledge that will maintain our freedoms did not stem from a low view of education, indeed, education is vital to forming, the kind of virtuous and active citizens who could successfully govern themselves.

    A popular government, without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a prologue to a farce or a tragedy; or , perhaps both knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors, must arm themselves with power which gives.

    Religion, morality ,and knowledge being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind, schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged.

    Education is metrics;- an increasingly complex set of measurable, quantifiable, standards designed to prepare students for productivity in the workforce. It ignores the soul and is anathema to the development of virtues which is the lifelong process of seeking and loving truth, and without which no human let alone an ape can live a genuinely satisfying life.

    Education is fundamentally a spiritual and moral understanding and as such it is well beyond the capabilities of the state to teach. We need citizens who understand liberty and justice, who objectively pursue truth and who will ardently champion these values in the public squares of African countries. Only a holistic form of education that takes the content and context, the vision and values, of our salone into account can create such citizens and preserve their freedom in the generations to come.

    THEREFORE, AN UNLEARNED/UNEDUCATED POPULATION HAS HELP THE POLITICIANS TAKE CONTROL AND EMPOWER THEMSELVES TO REGULATE AND CONTROL THE FOLKS.
