Struggles Of A Nigerian Youth
It is often said that the youths are the leaders of tomorrow, but in this part of the world the opposite is the case.
Nigeria's population is over 200 million the youth making about 70% of this population yet there is still high level of poverty, joblessness and hopelessness across the country.
These days your Edcation counts for almost nothingnothing out in the labour market, jobs are scarce and graduates are becoming much.
What is really the way forward my dear country.
First of all youths should change their mindset of white collar jobs and look deep within themselves and find something positive they can do with their lives like:
1. Learning a new skill: it doesn't matters what you study in school try and also learn anything which can give you an edge or something you can be managing before you get your dream job.
2. Strive to constantly improve yourself: this is another very important aspect which is developing yourself daily by reading books, attending conference and seminars and linking up with people that matters.
3. Never stay idle: it is often said that an idle man is the devils workshop so you should always occupy your time with something meaningful always.
4. be patient : I know it's not easy after finishing school and serving your father's land not been able to land a job is frustrating which has lead many youths to tow the path of internet fraud and other social vices. It is good to be patient and hardworking when your time comes you shall surely make it.
These are many more are problems faced by the Nigerian youth which hahas lead to the influx of our youths seeking for greener pastures oversees.
The government seriously needs to come to the aid of the people else by the next 5-10years they won't be enough youth in the country.
