« on: July 15, 2015, 05:13:59 AM »
With very low manufacturing and increasing number of Universities in Nigeria, is there any hope for the Nigerian graduate?

There is very little or no hope for Nigerian graduates. The first thing we need to establish is to look at the role of manufacturing in the creation of employment opportunities. All over the world, manufacturing sector absorbs much more people than any other sector. An average Nigerian graduates wants to travel abroad simply because he/she believes there are more jobs than the available population in abroad. Reverse is the case in Nigeria.
Everyone is clamoring for entrepreneurship but not everybody has the entrepreneurship skills to create job. Manufacturing can absorb both skilled, semi-skilled and unskilled labour.
The survival of an economy is majorly centered on its manufacturing sector. The unemployment rate in China is 4.1% while that of USA is 5.3% despite the fact that USA population is much more less than China population. The simple truth is that, with very low manufacturing and increasing number of Universities in Nigeria, the hope of Nigerian graduates seems to be hopeless.
