The low rate of unemployment in Nigeria has led to a number of youths getting creative and seeking alternative means of generating income other than waiting for a white collar job that may never come through.
Such is the case of a young man identified as Emmanuel Obayagbona, who shared his story with Legit.ng and revealed how the frustration of job seeking had lead him to getting creative and going on to invent a device he described as a generator power booster.
According to Obayagbona, the high rate of job seekers in the country has been an issue of concern for him, and he had particularly wept when Nigerian billionaire Aliko Dangote, was in search of just 100 truck drivers and millions of Nigerians with degrees had applied for the job.
The situation, however, inspired him to look around and think of an innovative way to create a means of earning a living.
