Over the years ..i have tried to answer this question.. Its so ironical seeing that illiterate friend Make it while you “a book worm back then ” still struggling to survive.
I have Made some investigations .. And this is just the main fact .. Please Read on
JUST ANOTHER COMMON SENSE LECTURE
“Give N50,000 only to a secondary school dropout and watch him buy stove, a frying pan, cooking oil and other things to start indomie joint business. In just three years, the young man will have a wife and a plot of land worth N1million, a tokunbo car, a TV, sofa, bed etc in
his one bedroom house.
Give one million to most university graduates and watch them buy Samsung Galaxy phones, several pairs of skinny jeans, take their numerous girlfriends out, take selfies and post
them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
In less than two years, they will still be buying indomie on debt from the secondary dropout guy and paying rent or staying in their parent’s house.
The question is:“` *DOES EDUCATION BREEDS WASTE, ARROGANCE, GULLIBILITY AND STUPIDITY?*
Education does not mean gullibility but it makes you look down on possibilities as low status. Unemployment is actually higher amongst the educated not within the uneducated. The uneducated are more innovative and ready to do what the educated will refer to as “dirty menial jobs” and before you know it, that uneducated guy will be needing an accountant to look into his books and will now employ the educated guy.
REALITY OF OUR ENVIRONMENT
We Educated guys ..or students have always had this Negative Mentality of Securing a good job after we graduate from higher institutions.. Yes securing a good job is a good thing .. But that should not be what you should hope on. Looking at the conditions we are in Nigeria today .. You will be a big fool if you still have that Mindset on
We need to start being creative. Yes Self employment is the key. Don’t fully rely on getting a job after school. Trust me .. You will fail. Unless you have a rich Dad out there who is ready to will his company to you. Or an uncle ready to employ you.
You need to stop dreaming. Start something your self and grow with it .. Don’t wait to get a confidential call telling you that you have been employed as an office Manager with a salary of N500,000. Be your Own boss.
Am not saying you should stop looking for jobs. You should and when you get it save money .. If its big enough invest!.
Stop lazing about hustle!!!
