Nigerian man who became a mechanic in 2006 when there was no job finally makes it previously reported that a young Nigerian man, Oluwasunkanmi David, demonstrated the importance of upskilling oneself no matter what the situation is.

In 2006, while he was waiting to get a job, he started apprenticing at a mechanic workshop. Oluwasunkanmi in a LinkedIn post said he was a big subject of ridicule among friends who thought he was doing a dirty job.

Some of his friends even advised him to wait at home until a suitable job shows up but the man’s thirst for knowledge and self-improvement would not allow him to sit still.
