Facebook user, Onyinye Okoye, shared photos of Ebere Nwabuike, with the hopes of inspiring many more youths to take up whatever little opportunities they can find, to fend for themselves, instead of lazying around waiting for a high paying job.
According to her: "In the last two months, ORENDA SCHOOLS has received not less than 85 job applications/cv's as at yesterday and still counting. The high rate of unemployment in BENUE state and Nigeria as a whole is alarming. It got to a point when a job applicant walks into my office, I make sure I do a small re-orientation talk with them. My aim is to inspire them and gear them towards financial independence and entrepreneurship.
"I tell them (WHY CANT YOU GO START SOMETHING ). As a year two student in BENUE State university I fried and sold Akara and did mama put to earn extra money. It baffles me when able bodied youth just concentrate on photocopying their Cv's and dropping every where.
Don't get me wrong. I am not saying it is wrong to apply for a job, what I am saying is GET BUSY with something while you wait for the Job and who knows, You may be the next employer of labour.
"I INTRODUCE TO YOU Ebere Nwabuike. She is a graduate of Agric economics from university of Agriculture Makurdi and was able to put herself through school from the proceeds she made selling akamu. A trade she inherited from her mother. STOP lazying around. GO START SIMETHING."
