Unemployment! Do I Really Have to Be Unemployed?

Are Afe Babalola once said "The rich cannot sleep because the poor  are hungry". Why are the poor hungry, you may ask. I would say because they have no jobs. Some of these poor without jobs are graduates, and may be tempted to use the knowledge acquired in anti-social manners. You may disagree with me, I mean it's your right, if you do. That to me is the source of danger.   Dr Tai Solarin also said "I have no sympathy for unemployed graduates". According to him, "a true graduates should be a job creator and not a job seeker". These two statements by Nigerian elders about Nigeria are certainly food for thought.


In Nigeria, jobs appear to be defined as  paid employment, that is excluding  self-employment?

Try this out. In a discussion of employment with an unemployed graduates, steer your talk to self-employment, and see if he will not loose interest. I have done this several times with the same result. Another paradox is that the Nigerian graduates will accept a very low wage instead of applying self in self employment. These observations motivated this Job-talk.  Yes, let us talk about it.
Chinua Achebe in "No Longer at Ease" observed that people do not go to cities to seek for work (jobs) but money, because the thick forest behind their father's house is ample work!
How do we explain the apathy towards self employment among Nigerian graduates? What can you say about this serious issue?

Quoting Onwuegbuzie Innocent:
Indeed Sir you have a point, looking at the current situation of Nigeria, it will be very unwise for one to begin to solely depend on Government provided Jobs alone.
It is time to look inward, it is time to self-discover the hidden potentials inherent in we youths and am sure with your expertise Sir you can guide us in thee right direction.
What is the way forward?

Hmm. The way forward?The challenges is multidimensiona l. Let us examine the challenges and the actors. The major actor is government.
Again Sir you have a point there. Been an aspiring youth, Sir your wealth of experience will go a long way to carve a future for me. I do hope to learn a lot from you even if have to pay.
