(A Narrative by Jawolusy)
After this pandemic is over;
We will definitely know the value of greeting our loved ones with hugs and what it means to exchange pleasantries with handshakes,
After this rough road gets smoother,
We will learn never to misuse our freedom for it not to be taken away from us, we now know how it feels to be caged,
After this scary time is over,
We will all realize that “air” is the most valuable asset for the rich indoor and the average man at the gate,
After this turbulent sea gets calmer,
We will all know the value of having fun at playgrounds, especially, hanging out with loved ones for a date,
After this tough time is over,
We will all respect the fact that all breathing things have feelings too, even the animal in a cage,
After this hard time is over,
We will learn to know that we can cut our daily costs, and live without some luxurious stakes,
After this is storm is over,
We will definitely learn how to take life easy, because tomorrow is like an unpredictable outcome of a game,
After this weird moment is over,
we will all realize that we can do without several addictive habits, the only discipline we need is a mere tame,
After this cloudy sky gets clearer,
We will all realize that breathing, sleeping and waking up are the most precious gifts of life, they should be much more desirable than our endless quest for wealth, power and fame,
After this dark cloud gets brighter,
We will definitely learn to pay more attention to scientific research and technological solutions, even beyond the academic frame,
And after this pandemic is over,
We will always remember that sons of men fought with two types of enemies; the poor were scared of hunger (an enemy within), so they trooped into the streets, while the rich were perplexed of a virus (an enemy outdoor), so they stayed indoor to evade the fierce flame.

#GlobalGoals #17SDGs #Goal4 #QualityEducation #Green4Blue @netismorg #SDG4 #EducationDay
Greetings Ladies and Gentlemen,
My name is Jawolusi Oluwaseun Solomon, and I am the NETISM Author.
As we all know, history defines us, because sometimes, the past dictates the future stakes. So within the next few seconds, it is quite pivotal to give you a brief about my Journey as an Author.
I feel so fascinated to inform you that this is my 4th book within the previous 4 years. After so many years of doing research writings and different online publications, my sideway career as an Author officially started in 2016 shortly after the completion of my service in the 7th Senate of the Nigerian National Assembly as a Legislative Aide. My first book was titled; Empowering Youths with 30+ Lucrative ICT Ideas – a research work with the focus to foster the long-awaited digital economy in Nigeria. In 2017, I participated in a National Development Reality TV Show where I unveiled the Investor’s handbook, titled, NICTIP Initiative – with the vision to establish National ICT Industrial parks in all the 6 Geo-Political Zones of Nigeria. In 2018, I publicly presented the The New Ekiti Dream: which is a long-term Socio-Economic Development Plan for Ekiti State.
But in 2019, I decided to write about one of the pressing societal issues in Nigeria and other affected regions across the globe, focusing on the pros and cons of technology in the digital era. Ladies and Gentlemen, it is my utmost pleasure to introduce to you; “NETISM: The Art of Digital Parenting”. It is a Tech-Social Development Literature that maximizes education as a viable weapon to combat the down-sidedness of various experiences in the digital world.
The Research work, titled; “NETISM”; is dedicated to all the Nation Builders across the globe, particularly, the Educational Institutions, Religious Institutions, Matrimonial Institutions, United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals, Agenda 2063 (The Africa We Want) by the African Union Economic, Social and Cultural Council (AU-ECOSOCC), Non-Governmental Organizations, MDAs and other Civil Society Organizations that are committed to the sustenance of public moral ethics and the restitution of the vanishing value systems in various states.
To start with, I need to note that the invention of different digital technologies in the 21st century has reshaped the conventional daily activities of humans. Most importantly, evolution of the internet has introduced innovations channeled towards different value-added purposes, such as; education, Commerce, information dissemination, social interactions, entertainment, administration and other facets of the society.
It is a natural phenomenon that every invention could come with its unique pros and cons, that is, the blue side and the red side. Advancement of the internet and other ICT innovations are not immune to abuse or misuse. Moreso, children/teenagers in this day and age are highly exposed to ICT and the associated social exposures.
To be specific, the internet has paved ways for humans to explore a newly discovered planet beyond the well-known ones with just a click on a button. Amidst all these value-added products and services being created by the development of digital technologies in this era, committed nation-builders of this age must show a proactive concern about their negative effects on citizens’ morality, (most especially, when children are prematurely exposed to the pessimism of the digital world).
At this junction, please join me, kindly have a glance at the cover of the NETISM book; the kids of this digital era are illustrated as robots in the reflections of humans, it takes a tech-savvy style of parenting to properly nurture them to survive in an ever-changing digital landscape. It’s all about preparing them for the FUTURE, especially at their youthful stage and other subsequent phases of growth.
That is what I call Digital Posterity.
It is essential for us to take note of a point here, which is; “the resultant digital lifestyles of kids at their subsequent phases of growth, most especially, at their youthful age.”
Emphatically, as a parent, a guardian, an educationist and a nation-builder; if by today we fail to prepare something for the FUTURE, whenever the time comes, it could prepare anything for us…”
Everything about the NETISM initiative revolves around its logo, that is, the red and the blue concept.
The logo of the NETISM Project is relative to one of my oft-recited quotes, which states that, “the internet (and other digital gadgets) in the hands of a kid are likened to a double-edged sword, it could either make or mar the handler: it is healthier to tame the tech-savvy kids of today than to correct the irrepressible youths of tomorrow…” (Jawolusy, 2019).
Please note the five important emphases in this quote; “DOUBLE-EDGED SWORD, MAKE, MAR, TAME AND CORRECT”.
At this point, it is crucial to tell you what the NETISM book is all about in just one word!
TAME! TAME!! TAME!!!
What does it means to tame something or to tame someone? It means to control, monitor and be on top of a particular situation or to quench the negative power of something.
Redefining “Tame” in my own technical language; taming is contextually denoted as an early-precaution-system against the futuristic consequences of digital-based insecurities being caused by the activities of the end-users of different tech-gadgets.
Primarily, this book has a strategic focus on how to tame the tech-savvy kids of today towards the right digital footprint; while alongside ensuring that they use the internet and other digital gadgets at their disposals for career advancement, creation of national wealth and societal values and for their personal development – rather than using them in a pessimistic way.
When we were young, scientific facts and fictions informed us that 9 planets were in existence in the universe. Eventually, a new planet has been created through the productive activities of humans – that is, the internet – which is the ever-known largest market place, a place to sleep and wake up, a place to learn and earn, a place to associate, a place for business meetings and a planet for different forms of value-added services.
Recently, the internet has been purported as the “NEW CRUDE” with respect to its endless potentials for economic diversity of any nation, while also enhancing the GDP (Gross Domestic Product) and GNP (Gross National Product) of the same – by offering different outlandish services to end-consumers across the globe. However, the viable indicator to measure the well-being of any Nation is per-capita income, not GDP; sequel to this fact, ICT could be maximized to actualize a digital-driven self-reliant economy that solely relies on the youths’ active participation in the nation-building process.
By the matter of fact, most of the top ten richest men across the globe all have internet-driven businesses and other digital-related innovations.
I mean the likes of:
Bill Gates of Microsoft,
Steve Jobs of Apple,
Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook,
Jeff Bezos of Amazon,
The Co-Founders of Twitter & Instagram,
and the list goes on.
This indicator should be the major focus of various nation-builders across the globe, most especially in the developing states; if the youths of today in this side of the world are being allegedly seen to be lagging behind in catching up with the wave of the global economic shift, as nation-builders, what apparatus are we presently putting in place to ensure that the tech-savvy kids of this age would turn-out to have a responsible digital citizenship in the future – most especially at their youthful stage? Knowing fully well that the responsible digital citizenship of the people is essential in stimulating a sustainable socio-economic development of the target nation through tech-based industrial establishments and Foreign Direct investment (FDI). The task is hanging on us like a sword of Damocles.
This book contains the digital literacy tips handy for parents, educators and nation-builders – a timely intervention needed to foster the long-awaited responsible digital citizenship in Nigeria – in an attempt to change the recurring international misperception about the Nigerian youths to a splendid narrative.
This book would serve as a manual to guide the kids, the youths and other internet users on how to have a positive influence-exchange in the digital planet.
At this point, it is essential to have a strategy on how to restore the lost glory of the Nigerian youths in-line with the misperception about them in the international community. The Nigerian youths are talented, they are hardworking, they are vibrant and resilient – these are the types of reputable testimonies needed to facilitate Foreign Direct Investment that could foster the long-awaited industrialized economy in Nigeria – considering the fact that the youths constitutes the pivotal workforce needed to facilitate the full-flowering of any industrial establishment.
Here is a workable approach to change the narratives about the Nigerian youths to a decent one.
In reference to the Pareto 80-20 rule; it contextually states that if the 20% of a problem is rightly addressed, the problem would be 80% solved.
If you want to deal with a tree, you don’t cut its branches; rather, you deal with it from the root which is the foundation.
This non-country-specific book has the main objective to address the recurring tech-social problems in Nigeria by using education as an engagement tool. This entails the dissemination of handy digital literacy tips to the key role-players. Research has clearly shown that education and the right orientation of the general public about the dos and don’ts of the digital world has been proven to be the most viable weapon to combat digital insecurities – that is, “IF YOU KNOW – YOU KNOW…”
Pragmatically, the Government and the masses both have crucial roles to play in this process.
Sequel to this fact, through the means of different corporate social responsibilities, private and public institutions MUST be ready to embark on projects targeted towards the provisions of necessary digital literacy to the general public.
Additionally, through the maximization of effective policies and legislative tools, the 3 Arms of Government, that is, the Lawmakers, Judiciary and the Executives must synergize efforts making and enforcing laws, orders and policies that would immediately and futuristically protect the kids, the teenagers, the youths and other citizens against the negative influence of digital exposures. However, I have drafted a public bill to this effect.
Putting all these solutions together, Nigeria would undoubtedly take her rightful position as the Giant of Africa in all ramifications within the shortest period of time.
In conclusion, it is crucial to give a brief introduction about the contents of the NETISM book.
As earlier noted, this tech-social development literature was written based on the pressing need in this digital era.
The book is multi-faceted, it has 7 chapters; the kids, the teenagers, the youths, the parents and guardians, educationists, the internet users, nation-builders and all the citizens in the digital world all have a distinct chapter that talks about their roles in fostering a responsible digital citizenship.
The first chapter introduces the family as the smallest unit of a nation where the necessary societal morals and ethics are being infused into the citizens. In line with this fact, if the family fails, the futuristic moral potency of the nation in question might be at the brim of collapse.
The second chapter highlights the dynamics of a family with the following sub-headings:
That highlights the second chapter.
Logically, chapter one and two emphasize on the problems at hand and the statement of need, while chapters 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 talk about the solutions to the afore-listed challenges.
Chapter 3 enumerates 30 actionable tips for digital parenting.
Chapter 4 talks about the parents, the youths and the well-being of the nation at a glance.
Chapter 5 elucidates the strategies for effective parenting in the digital era by proffering recommendations for the role-players.
Chapter 6 enumerates 20 cyber security tips for kids and teenagers, that is, the dos and don’ts of the internet.
The last chapter of the book enumerates 20 cyber security tips for parents, teachers and other internet users.
In sum, there are two-sides of every technology, that is, the blue side and the red side: information and communications technology, especially the evolution of the internet is not left-out in this regard. In-line with the context and content of this research work, titled; “NETISM: The Art of Digital Parenting”, our roles as Nation-builders is to ensure that the Nigerian citizens are rightly positioned at the blue side. That is the concept of a Responsible Digital Citizenship as postulated in the NETISM book. This is the fundamental factor that is needed to foster a sustainable Digital economy in Nigeria.
And here’s my closing note; “Future! Future!! Future!!! If by today we fail to prepare something for the Future, whenever the time comes, it would prepare anything for us…”
The right time to act is NOW! And the Future is NOW!!
As we labour together to make Nigeria a great domicile of abode, kindly accept the assurance of my esteemed regards for you and your gargantuan contributions to the process.

This year, thousands of potential prospects across the globe submitted different competition components for the #WBGYouthSummit, themed; “Smarter Cities for a Resilient Future”. Sequel to the submission of my 4-page proposal, titled; “#Green4Blue Initiative (Green Tourism for a Blue Economy)” and with respect to my preceding proliferation of green revolution for global infrastructural shift, I eventually emerged the Nigerian Delegate for the World Bank Global Youth Summit 2019, although, ‘circumstantially’, I would not be participating in the ongoing Summit, slated for today and tomorrow.
The ultimate goal of the international discourse is to instrumentalize ideas and policies that would actualize the 13th Goal (Climate Action) of the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals – with the ultimate aim to #SaveTheWorld from Global Warming effects and other climate-related hazards.
However, Deo-Volente, my competition component shall be the theme of my 5th book in 2020, which is the articulating of a Long-term Techno-Economic Development Framework for a Coastal Green City.
The GREEN4BLUE initiative is a Maritime-Green Tourism Project channeled towards the realization of the Paris Agreement Goals – as it is in-line with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
Under the Article 3, Paris Agreement (2015): “each country must determine, plan, and regularly report on the contribution that it undertakes to mitigate global warming”.

eRACER V1 – Electric Racing Car: A prototype of the future modes of transport
Objectives: Blazing a trail for a technology shift in the conventional transportation systems in an attempt to mitigate the recent climate change (extremely hot weather) in Nigeria, the type that may have resulted from the possible effects of global warming, due to the recurring emissions of CO2 from various fossil fuel internal combustion engines. Hence, a necessity to invent an eco-friendly modes of transportation – such as the different models of electric vehicles.
THE PROBLEMS AT HAND: Apart from other forms of environmental pollutions and breathing-related health issues being caused by the by-products emissions of petrol/diesel-driven engines, several research hypotheses also confirm that CO2 also affects the level of atmospheric precipitations, thereby forming acidic rain. This can affect the full-flowering of various agricultural practices and other aquatic lives (overpopulated regions and highly industrialized areas are mostly affected in this regard, due to massive CO2 emissions from power plants, Fossil fuel I.C.E. vehicles and other power Generators).
ACTUALIZING THE 13th GOAL OF THE UNITED NATIONS’ 17 SDGs: While analyzing the actualization of the previous MDGs – Millennium Development Goals, several reports depict that Sub-Sahara African Countries and South-Asian Countries are the under-achievers among other Nations. However, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals are here again – strategized by the United Nations, in an attempt to make the world a better place to live in – today and in the subsequent decades. “Climate Action” is the 13th Goal of the 17 SDGs of the United Nations. In an attempt to combat global warming, some nations are already making actionable moves, whereas, most African Nations are redundant by not considering the futuristic consequences of their actions and inactions of different climate exploits. This is another wakeup call for all!
So Far, So Good: In an attempt to actualize the global climate goal by collectively infinitesimalizing the effects of global warming, several countries/cities around the world are currently experimenting and implementing policies/methods on how to actualize a clean air by banning the sales and importations of fossil fuel-driven vehicles within the next few years/decades – in an attempt to achieve the 13th SDGs of the United Nations. Pragmatically, as reported by the Reuters: “In Norway, 52% of new car sales were electric in 2017” while the country is already making moves to ban the sales of petrol/diesel-driven I.C.E. cars in the next 6 years (2025). “By 2030, Israel will be banning the importation of I.C.E. vehicles – while only electric cars and the hybrid ones driven by natural gas will be allowed”. GZ also reported that: “Rome (Italy) will be banning diesel vehicles from the city centre by 2024, while Athens, Paris, Madrid, Mexico City will be banning the use of all diesel vehicles by 2025, Brussels (Belgian Capital) by 2030”. “In France, there shall be no sales of petrol/diesel vehicles by 2030”. Alongside, some States in the US, Germany, India, Taiwan, China, United Kingdom, Netherlands and Ireland are already developing a long-term plan to actualize a clean air by phasing out the conventional fossil fuel I.C.E. vehicles.
WAKING UP THE SLEEPING GIANTS: To aggravate the situation of the recurring global warming, culturally, African Nations have been the dumping ground for Tokunbo/used-cars which are more susceptible to CO2 emissions, while the inveterate use of petrol/diesel powered generators also contributed to other wailing environmental pollutions. It is very wrong for a country to import/use a diesel powered locomotive train in this cyber age L – considering its severe environmental pollution challenges. Most African countries that are majorly influenced by the global warming effects are not strategizing long-term plans on how to actualize zero-emission transportation systems within the next few decades. If I may ask! Are we going to become slaves to civilization once again? For how long shall we continue to import more than we export? In an attempt to strike a trade balance in the global market, African Nations (most especially Nigeria) must have more exportations than the incessant importations. That is the true meaning of gaining independence!
Recommendations: At this point, there should be bills and motions in the Nigerian National Assembly, structured towards experimenting and implementing some environmental laws in Nigeria – with the target to actualize a clean air in the next few years/decades. The only ACTION PLAN to accomplish this goal is to engage some dedicated Nigerian Scientists, Engineers, Technologists and other Foreign Research and Development Consultants on the global-moving-waves of technology shift in transportation systems – inventing an eco-friendly transport mode, such as electric vehicles and other hybrid cars that are driven by natural gas. The point remains the same, paradoxically; “In this side of the world, those who have ideas are not in power, while those in power have no ideas”. However, the right time to change the narratives is NOW!
RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT OF THE Electric vehicles: The developmental index of a Country can also be measured by her level of Research and Development of various scientific, technological and engineering inventions. Practically, when it comes to the schematics of electric vehicles, either the ones driven with AC motors or DC motors, there are still a lot of milestones to be reached in terms of service performance. For instance, the regenerative braking systems being deployed to auto-recharge EV batteries through its forward momentum can be upgraded, so that an electric vehicle can always recharge itself more efficiently. Also, for the case of electric cars driven with DC motors, a sturdy magnet that can produce more RPM/Torque for faster EV engines can be invented in this side of the world. These are the areas and many other ones that can be exploited in this course.
INTRODUCING THE eRACER – V1: The Electric Racing Car (eRACER V1) was modeled with an AutoCAD Application (2010 Version) in an attempt to invent a new genre of racing sport with faster EVs, while other replica models can be used as the conventional zero-emission trains, vehicles, sky-birds, trams and others – in order foster an appropriate climate action in Nigeria and other parts of the world, while also contributing to the actualization of the 13th goal of the 17 SDGs. The optimum target is to engage in R&D to invent a faster/turbo-like EV engines which can simultaneously recharge its battery as we pedal to the metal, alongside supplementing the existing battery-recharge system (regenerative braking) derived from the forward momentum of the motor.
CONCLUSION: As I have always canvassed for in my previous writings and during prior public interviews, it is high time for the Nigerian Government to partner with other private players in order to establish a National ICT Industrial Park in the 6 Geo-Political Zones of Nigeria. The action plan is to engage in the research and development of certain timely products (hybrid cars that use natural gas and other types of electric mode of transports, alternative source of cheaper/readily available/affordable energy for the generation of electricity) while the end goal is to blaze a trail for an industrialized/export-led economy among other dividends such as generating employment opportunities, actualizing a human-friendly nation, combating global warming and improved standard of living.
Most of all, no matter the amount of deposits of fossil fuels in Nigeria, research already confirms that such precious mineral resources will finish one day. If I may ask! What shall we fall back to – as a viable means of transportation? In the next few decades, how shall we sustain as a Nation in terms of a supplemented source of power generation? In reference to one of my epic quotes: “if you fail to prepare something for the time, whenever the time comes, it will prepare anything for you”.
