    If our country has good programme for the youths,i strongly believe none will embark on such trips.

    This trip is by choice, no one should be forced to embark on a deadly trip. Rip to dead.

    What are our mis-leaders saying/doing about all these? Do they really care if their citizens live or die? Very soon it will be election time and you will all be voting to maintain them for a few naira. It is really true that every nation deserves their leader. We are doomed for ever because we are ALL part of the problem.

    I just hope its not these Benin girls again like it was reported yesterday. I doubt if they listen to the news about how their daughters are sold into prostitution, because if they do, they wont fall for the story about sbdy taking their daughters out of the country. The saddest part is that another batch will be preparing for such journeys again

    It is very sad to see these autrocities going on, and heartbreaking for families to bury their young ones. We always depend on the government and wait for the government to find us better jobs, build something for us. We depend on evil ways to get rich quick and the end results is always bad news. It is true that the people in government are greedy and getting rich day by day and grabbing all the monies overseas and pocketing them. I think it is also time for the youth to step up with a different thinking that not only travelling overseas will make me rich or happy. Nowadays everywhere in the world is so difficult to live and very stressful to find a job, even though you can have the welfare system to take care of you before you find something to do.

    My advice is have we looked at the backyard of our country and say, well I can make it in Africa. We can start farming in different ways, because farming produces food, meat etc everyday for the people. We dont need a huge capital to start business. Dont let us wait for the government to give us money, what we can do is pressure the government to make the banks bring down interest rates so people can borrow money to start a small business. And when the money is given to you, make sure you pay the money back so that someone can also get the opportunity to borrow. Travelling overseas yes a lot have travelled but we still have the same mentality. God or Allah bless people wherever they are and so let us start looking at the backyard. The money you borrow to pay these smugglers can be used to start something.
    My heart breaks to see the young men and women dying for the sake of travelling overseas. Let us learn lessons from those who have been killed, maimed and destroyed by different kinds of abuses and let us change our thinking. We need critical thinking to wake and better the lives of us and our families.

    And to our political leaders stop looting the money and think twice, if someone has to loot the money will you have some left to loot. Think about your people and not only your pockets and acquiring wealth and more money, they are all vanity

    This is further proof of the level of moral decadence in Nigerian society. What do 14-18 year olds know about life to embark on a journey without their parents? No doubt, these kids nowadays are raising themselves without parental guidance or support. The country may be tough but still does not excuse parents from the moral and legal obligations of properly raising their children. How do they feel now about the disastrous end of their children’s lives? You don’t just give birth to children and expect others to raise them. My children are my children, not government children and I owe it to them a duty to raise them properly and accountability to God who in his mercy entrusted me with their care and upbringing. They never asked to be born and most people become parents by choice. Perhaps if people, especially women learn to have one or two children they can raise alone whatever circumstances they find themselves, we can save ourselves from these embarrassing saga and needless waste of precious, innocent lives. As for those traffickers luring children into destruction, the wrath of God will never depart from their households and their unborn generations.
