Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a Nigerian graduate manufactures paint to overcome his disability.
The man named Odebode studied mechanical engineering at Ladoke Akintola University of Technology and concluded his NYSC service year in 2015. His focus was to secure a blue-collar job, but in 2016, disappointment in securing a private-sector job pushed him into paint production.
"After my service in 2015, My friend called me and asked me what I was doing to manage but I told him nothing because I was still looking for a white-collar job but one question that he asked me was that did I have any skill but I said no.
"And this my friend happens to be a mechanical engineer. He acquired roadside mechanic skill before I went to Lautech to study mechanical engineering. So that was how he introduced me to the man that taught me how to produce paint. So I started paint production in Feb 2016."
