For some Nigerian graduates, it took two, three years or more to secure their first job after series of application letters and interviews.
While some were lucky to secure jobs early irrespective of their degree type or class others had different stories to tell. Hence, frustration and depression set in.
A Nigerian graduate from Katsina State identified as Usman Abubakar couldn’t contain his ill luck as regards getting a job as he went ahead to burn his certificates according to sources on Facebook .
The certificates he reportedly burnt include his NYSC discharge certificate, SSCE and that of his University.

Instead he should've created job for himself, if he has a new business idea and does not know how to fund it, he should've join the fastest rising industry of Nigerian yahoo boys.

Haba!!! Has it gotten to this?This country can frustrate graduates sha,but I believe as a graduate u can be innovative by coming up with ur own business idea on a small scale using the knowledge u have garnered so far while in school which will help you in generating wealth.

Two things, one, d system should stop nepotism, do favouritism and allow the technocrats to work by retiring d necessary old man power from d system.
2. The boy needs to change is mind set by knowing how to accept rejection and moving on with life.
