It is very sad to say that Africa's most populous country and largest economy has a youth unemployment problem. In Nigeria, nearly a quarter of the population is jobless and 25 percent is underemployed.
For young people within the age of 16 to 30, the figures are grim: 55.4 percent of them are without work. Creating jobs has been one of the key issues discussed by past and present federal government.
Being a youth in Nigeria is "very challenging", this view can be exemplified in our everyday activities.
Graduates from universities, polytechnics and colleges of education find it quite difficult in getting established. Youths who weren't opportuned to go to university who should be getting vocational training are not getting it. They're not getting into formal employment. Unemployment isn't just a challenge for Nigeria, but for Africa and the whole world.
A picture which was shared on Facebook captured the moment when a University graduate was seen hawking pure water while wearing his corporate wear.
The picture was accompanied with the caption:
"Corporate Pure Water and Bottled Water Seller. As a graduate, can you engage in this kind of business?"
See pictures below:
As expected,the picture was greeted with lots of reactions,see screenshots below:
So my dear readers,due to unemployment,can you sell pure water as a graduate? Let me know in the comments section.
