A frustrated graduate of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN) in Enugu State, South Eastern Nigeria, has put up his certificates for sale due to his inability to find a job in the country.
According to facebook, the graduate who identifies as Godwin Joseph Ochie put up his Bachelor of Science (Bsc) and National Youths Service Corps (NYSC) certificates for sale on Social Media on Saturday, August 30, 2020.
Ochie who said certificates don’t work in Nigeria stated that he’ll burn them if no one buys them.
“Certificate for Sale or I burn Them. They don’t work in Nigeria”, he posted on Facebook.
Ochie had graduated from the department of Political Science, UNN with a Second Class Honours (Upper Division) in 2010 and was issued his certificate in 2011. He completed the compulsory NYSC service in 2012, which he started in the year 2011.
It further learnt that Ochie was one of the beneficiaries of the N-Power scheme that was dissolved in August, 2020.
In one of his post, the depressed graduate complained that: “The Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs under the affairs of HM Sadia Farouq has barred volunteers (from the N-Power scheme) from commenting or replying on their timeline. Volunteers can no longer comment or reply to the Ministries tweets. And so. And then.”
N-Power is a Federal Government social intervention programme aimed at helping youths without skill, job, or economic means to survive. Monthly stipend ranges from N10,000 to N30,000.
