You’ve done well. Yes…after the years spent on campus, you yielded to the clarion call. You’ve done well!
Now its over, Allowee is over, New level, new start. Where do you kick off from.
Some had hopes they would be retained at the Place of primary assignment, but nothing surfaced….so what next?
Reading through some comments during the Passing Out Ceremonies, hmmm…… Well Said…..
In Akwa Ibom State, the governor, Mr. Godswill Akpabio, advised them to continue serving the nation in whatever sector of the economy they find themselves. The governor advised the outgoing 2,893 corps members in the state to embrace self-employment.
Also, Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun State, urged the corps members to deploy their creative thinking into how to create jobs for themselves rather than roaming the streets in search of paid jobs.
He said, “ It is imperative to stress that gone are the days to expect that immediately after service, one would secure an automatic life-time job even among several alternatives. The attitude and orientation of majority of our young graduates was that creative thinking and individual initiative ended when they wrote their final examination.“This is absolutely wrong. You need to apply creativity more now in the face of unemployment bedeviling the nation. Focus more on self employment.”
Also, the Rivers State Governor, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, – “As you are now faced with the task of seeking gainful employment, I advise you to nurture and apply yourselves to the practical lessons of self-employment, which you were exposed to in the course of your service year, through the skills acquisition and entrepreneurial development programme, as white collar jobs are no longer available for all employable Nigerians as in the past.“I therefore urge you to be self-reliant so as to assist the government in fighting the rising rate of unemployment in our society,” Amaechi said.
However Governor Sullivan Chime of Enugu State urged them to make the necessary sacrifice required to achieve success , “Some of you may be rightly apprehensive of what tomorrow holds for you. I want to assure you that it is bright. As educated young men and women with requisite skills, the sky is your limit.
“However, you must recognise that the road to success has never been easy. History has shown that no individual or nation has ever achieved success without sacrifices.”
Words from the leaders…. I will say, that’s some good advice for those willing to take to it.
Even if there are vacancies, it may not be enough to accommodate all the graduates we have. The best way out is Skills and self employment. Making you not only good to go but good for the Economy.
My words go out to y’all. The time you have now, use it well. Some were here at the Academy during the Service year and have definitely gained a lot.
The doors are always opened. Join the team of the Naija Changers. Your input goes a long way for you and the entire Nation.
To all the corpers, congratulations. May the land be green for you all. Nevertheless, stand up and add more to your CV even while you await that dream employment.
