At a time when there are too many graduates in Nigeria with little or no job opportunities where they can practice what they studied and make an living, it is very impressive to know that there is an unemployed graduate who have decided to put his brain to work and come up with an idea that will fetch them an honest income.
This is the inspiring story of a young man who graduated from Ambrose Ali University in Ekpoma in Edo, where he studied Accountancy.
Having been hit with the reality of the economic crunch in the country, he decided to go to a catering school and eventually started a food hawking business after 4 years of fruitlessly waiting to grab a white-collar job.
His pictures were shared on Facebook by Daniel Usifo who wrote:
“I saw this man on my way to PH hawking cooked food in wheelbarrow this morning in Ekpoma, Edo State. I was moved to patronize him even when I was never hungry.
“Guess what…… he is an Accountant, he graduated 4yrs ago but never got any job. He decided to go catering school. Today, he stepped out in the streets of Ekpoma where he graduated from to do his first personal business ever.
“I asked why he decided to go this way and his response was WOW. He said “bros wetin I go do na, hence there is no job anywhere and I am the first son of my parent I decided to go this way rather than becoming an armed rubber to take care of those who took care of me from childhood before they die in regrets”.
“You know what….. he is an Igbo man…
“I respect his courage….”
When your country gives you no choice as a graduate, you just have to do something for yourself…
