On-Air-Personality, Frank Edoho, has disclosed that nowadays, youths do not want to work but aim to drive flashy cars and own luxuries items.
According to the Who Wants To Be a Millionaire anchor, some youths do not want to put in any effort in what they do and get off the rail towards their destinations or tow the dubious part.
Speaking on the strong point of the television game show, Frank explained that the show strongest point is its underlying philosophy that you have to work for what you earn. It looks like it easy to answer 15 questions and get N10million, but when you see the drama and what goes into it, you will know. So, N10million doesn’t come easy; no wonder we’ve only had one jackpot winner. So, I think the philosophy of the show is that we want to entertain, we want to educate but most importantly, we want to pass on the hidden message that you have to work, to earn the prize, he added.
Frank also disclosed that part of the reasons why the youths do not read these days is due to the kind of lifestyles they indulge, which doesn’t encourage reading. Those days, we didn’t have a lot of technology, we didn’t have social media and we didn’t have many distractions, so one of the ways you could entertain yourself is to carry a novel by Jeffrey Archer to read. The ladies will pick Mills and Boon, he said. Then technology came and took over and we now have many distractions. We must have missed it somewhere along the line, because even in the developed societies, they still read and their culture enables it, he observed.
