The Need For Real Entrepreneur Among Young Nigerians

September 12, 2014.

The grief and fear of low or inconsistency of pension and retirement benefits, the terror of not having steady salary leads our retirees to a shot life span after retirement.

More than 90 per cent of those ones that tries to start up a business do fail because of lack of financial literacy. Our country is blessed with variety of natural resources; we are front runners in our continent in terms of economic power.

We are the giant of Africa; we have all opportunity at our disposal. Universities and colleges do teach us to become good employees so that we can have good and secure job but nothing is taught on entrepreneurship.

Although most universities are trying to bring entrepreneurs courses in our curriculum, but they are entirely different from what it is in real sense. Nigerian government has failed to provide employment for its citizens.

The rate of unemployment is rapidly shooting every day as students are graduating from our institution with no certainty of having employment.  No any other graduate has to die seeking for employment.

Let us seek entrepreneurship education so that we can exploit the God’s given gift our dear country is endowed with. The sky should be our beginning towards making our country a better one.
