A Nigerian graduate with the handle @JESSEDREVIVAL who studied mechanical engineering in school has taken to Twitter to showcase the work he is doing for survival.

In a tweet on Thursday, May 13, the Nigerian man shared a photo of himself at work and a snap showing when he got his National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) certificate.
Tagging President Muhammadu Buhari on Twitter among other handles, he said that he had to make a career switch because the Nigerian government had failed him.
His work snap has him holding a paint bucket in a room that is undergoing a decoration process.
Though his tweet has not gathered many reactions as at the time of writing this report, a tweep, @DangoteOfData, told him to keep his good work up.
