If there's anything the steady rise in Nigeria's unemployment rate has taught graduates, it is that they should get something doing instead of hoping year in year out for a white collar job that may not come.

Nigeria unemployment rate in 2020 of 9.0%, according to Statista, has pushed many graduates into doing jobs unrelated to their studied courses in school and Mustapha Yusuff Abidemi is one of such graduates.

The young man who studied Insurance at Ibadan Polytechnic, now Oke Ogun Polytechnic, Saki has risen to the occasion as he sells zobo with his mother.

In an exclusive chat with Legit.ng, Mustapha whose father is late said his inability to raise funds to start up the business properly on his own meant he had to work with his mum.

He wants to brand the zobo making

The optimistic man who rounded off his NYSC in October 2020 spoke on his plans to get the business branded.

He however lamented that he lacked the money to carry this out.

"...But the issue is that I don't have enough funds to carry out the task.
"Getting the ingredients is not the issue, other things are.
"Things like sealing machine, plastic and other important equipment needed for the business."
