Usman explains why he dropped the advice

The actor did not only drop the advise, but also gave reasons and calculations as to why he concluded that waiting for government jobs is a waste of time.

According to him, the compulsory National Youth Service Corp (NYSC) programme has three batches and two streams in each state every year which brings an average of two thousand graduates per stream.

With his calculations, the country produces four hundred and thirty two thousand graduates in a year which is too much for the few jobs available.
