Let’s Face It


Graduates? What Are You Waiting For?

The problem of unemployment is exacerbatedimg_2489 by the fact of the unemployability of most of today’s job seekers. Quite frankly, you can blame it on an education system that is zero in building skills in learners. Be that as it may, how about self-reliance spirit? When systems break down and the government’s effort to rescue is dismal, must we resign to fate and do nothing?

In 1988, when for some awkward development I couldn’t embark on the study program I had intended to and no white collar job was readily toyota_prius_front_20071025available, I took to mini-cabbing in the city of London. On a good day, especially back in my native land at that time, that was an anathema! However, I had a goal. I knew my capabilities but without money nothing can be done. So, for me, the road to success required some short-termism. After all, it is unarguably true that “the end justifies the means”. My stint in mini-cabbing paid dividends. I converted it into seed-capital for my first “white collar” business in the United Kingdom. So, I transited from cabby to an entrepreneur beginning with Fonecast Ltd, a broadcast service that utilized rented British Telecom lines.

Recently, I came across the story of a young lady, Susan Aghogho Asakpa, who has a degree in Accounting from University of Nigeria, Enugu Campus. She dared the odds to drop a “peanuts” paying job in order to pursue self-employment as a cab driver in Abuja. Find details of her enchanting story below.
