On the 11th of February 2023, Nigeria was buzzing with excitement as the Labour Party held its final campaign rally in Lagos. The presidential candidate, Peter Obi, was making his way to Alaba International Market to address the traders, when a young boy by the name of Yusuf Alabi jumped in front of his car and showed his love.

In a now viral video obtained by MandyNews.com, the 15-year-old boy from Ibadan, South-Western Nigeria, expressed his admiration for Peter Obi and stated that he would pray for him if he won the election.

In the video, Yusuf was asked why he took such a risk by rushing to the front of the convoy. He simply replied, “I love Peter Obi because of what he is doing.” When asked about his hopes for the future, Yusuf stated that he will pray for Peter Obi to do good for the citizens of Nigeria if he wins the election. He also expressed that he believes Peter Obi is already making a positive impact.

Yusuf Alabi’s act of bravery and love has captured the hearts of many across the country and has drawn attention to the issue of out-of-school children in Nigeria. The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) estimates that over 20 million children are out of school in Nigeria, making it the country with the largest number of out-of-school children in the world. This is a cause for concern, as education is a crucial tool for breaking the cycle of poverty and improving the lives of children and their families.

In Nigeria, poverty is a major challenge and is a root cause of many social problems such as crime, unemployment, and low life expectancy. Education is seen as a key tool in addressing poverty and providing young people with the skills and knowledge they need to participate in the workforce and improve their lives. However, many children in Nigeria do not have access to education due to a variety of factors such as poverty, cultural beliefs, and lack of infrastructure.

The lack of access to education has a significant impact on the future of these children and their communities. Children who do not attend school are more likely to experience poverty, have limited job opportunities, and are more susceptible to exploitation and abuse. This is particularly concerning as children are the future of any country and they need to be equipped with the skills and knowledge they need to contribute to society.

The Nigerian government has made efforts to address the issue of out-of-school children, but more needs to be done. Investment in education, particularly in rural areas, is crucial in addressing the challenge. The government can also work with non-governmental organizations and the private sector to provide support and resources for children who are unable to attend school.

Furthermore, political leaders like Peter Obi can play a crucial role in addressing the issue of out-of-school children by making it a priority in their campaigns and advocating for greater investment in education. Peter Obi’s commitment to improving the lives of citizens and addressing the challenges faced by Nigeria is inspiring and his efforts to raise awareness about the importance of education should be commended.

Yusuf Alabi’s act of bravery and love serves as a reminder that young people have a crucial role to play in shaping the future of Nigeria. Children like Yusuf need to be supported and encouraged to pursue their dreams and ambitions, regardless of their background or circumstances. Education is the foundation for their future and it is our responsibility to ensure that every child has access to it.
