The Education is Clear

Have you ever met someone who is intelligent yet illiterate? I have, and how you know they are intelligent is by the way they conduct themselves, and carry on useful conversations with the level of English that they speak. This intelligence shows in their neat appearance, the way they interact with others, and in the thoughts and ideas they share with you. In that moment, you know that if this one was opportune to have formal education, they would do much better.

Plagues of The Nigerian Workforce

I hear people complain a lot about the quality of the workforce in Nigeria. Stories abound of graduates who cannot write a job application letter; cannot communicate fluently in English; cannot think on their feet to proffer solutions to problems on the job; cannot innovate, improvise, or adapt in a bid to tackle challenges.

We Must Disrupt Traditional Education

Gone are the days when it was enough to be academically successful and therefore expect to also enjoy success in life. Times have changed; if anything, there are more people in the world meaning that more people are competing for the same limited resources, jobs, and opportunities that you desire. Global competition is steeper as the world continues to evolve into a more interconnected community through technological advancement.

There is No Such Thing as Unemployment in Nigeria

Most people would disagree, but I strongly believe that saying there are no jobs in Nigeria is a fallacy. How can one confidently say there are no jobs in a country riddled with so many problems begging to be solved? Or are we unaware that wealth is created by solving problems?

It’s another New Year and I guess that like me you have also resolved to do some things differently this year. The problem usually is not with the decisions we make about how to conduct our affairs in a new year rather it lies in how disciplined we are in executing those decisions.
