TOLU'S DIARY

TUESDAYS 10AM

Dear diary,

I can see you are all smiles as I engage you once again. My reflection this week is triggered by a visit to my farm. I see you are grinning that Muhammadu Buhari has finally sent the lazy youth to the farm. Count me out, ‘lazy’ cannot be found in my encyclopedia. On a supervisory visit, I met some of the workers wrapping their so called ‘menu’. I asked why they have to smoke before doing my job. One of the guys replied ‘’haven’t you heard about the science students? Be rest assured, we will do a perfect job’’. 
I’m a science student even though their opinion about science student is totally different from mine. In my inspection, I met another group weeding the yam farm. Five boys have already bent down low to take life out of the unwanted plants. At the end of the day, those boys that took their menu had worked like machine (saves time and energy) and have done a thorough job while the others that started earlier were still toiling. "Those boys mixed tramadol and codeine" one of the boys sound the alarm when I said they were as slow as the current government. 
Youths have become drug addicts which has hazardous side effects. These drugs are gradually becoming legal since severe actions has not been taken against them. No wonder crime rate is as high as Sodom and Gomorrah. These drugs enter through our border despite the said ban on these products. For us to have a sane society that can boast of able youth clamoring for ‘Not too young to run’ then we have to join hands to stop drug abuse. 
Science students may rock in relaxation centers and on your playlist but guys please SAY NO TO DRUGS. Our lives shouldn’t be determined by drugs. Let stay out of hard drugs that can hamper our greatness in life. Diary, let them know no one is as high as the almighty no matter their intake. Till next time, love you diary and please doing drugs is not an option. Stay blessed!!!
