As i take a critical and introspective look at the state of affairs in this great nation(Nigeria) and its future, with the increasing number of unemployed graduate and the alarming rate of unemployment currently ravaging the country. I cannot but ask myself this question: “Is there really hope for the youths who are supposed to be the leaders of this nation in years to come? I doubt if we are on the right part to securing the future of our great country, and if we are making any concrete plans for the so-called future leaders of tomorrow, looking at the high rate of unemployment and unproductivity. Because an unemployed person is not only bankrupt, but also lacks the capacity to be productive. . For instance , the recent recruitment exercise conducted by the Nigerian Immigration Service(NIS), in which 18 people lost their lives, as a result of stampede. Six million unemployed or underemployed graduates applied for only four thousand five hundred available immigration jobs. Can you imagine the overwhelming level of unemploment? The facct is that government lacks the will and capacity to create job for everybody. The unsteady state of the economy, unfavourable environment and the spate of insecurity makes it difficult for investors to invest in the country, which also contributes to the high rate of unemployment. The only way you can overcome these challenge of unemployment, is to be creative, look inwards to discover what you can do to create job for yourself. There’s no better time than now to start thinking of becoming your own boss.
