As the rate of unemployment continues to rise in our uncertain economic climate, Nigerians must find ways to sharpen and hone their God given skills so as to engage themselves meaningfully. They must employ these skills in order to proffer solutions or create objects/products of high standards that meet some recognized and unrecognized need which will in turn allow them earn a living.
Starting must not be left for later, but ought to be done now.
