A frustrated Nigerian student has cried out online on why he regrets going to the university! The final year marketing student of a South-Eastern state university writes below...




when I was in secondary school I was among the best in my class,is either I came first, second or third I never had any position below them. 
my parents were so happy and proud of me and vow to train me up to University education even if it will cost them starving just make sure I attend University because they were poor.
After hearing this from them I became so happy and elevated (remember those feelings then that u will go to University, those feelings no be here) at that time I don't think about anything else except University, jamb,post utme , life in campus and any other thing relating to University.
I wrote my first jamb in 2009, scored above 260, then score relatevely high post utme but I was denied admission in one of the federal University in Nigeria not because I didn't meet the cut off mark but because I don't have money to runs the admission,I lost the admission that year and became so frustrated and dejected. 
let Make it short, i have been writing jamb from 2009 till lastly in 2013 when I got admission to study marketing in one the state University in South East.
I,m in my final year now studying marketing just few months for me to graduate.
You may be wondering while i,m writing this,now let me tell you. 
I,m writing this first because ......
1 I,m frustrated right now because after graduation I will start roaming the streets looking for job.
2 Had it been I use those time I spent in writing jamb and do business by now I would have been s millionaire by now.
3 Had it been my parents advice me to learn trade by now I would have been my own oga controlling millions.
4 I have to start afresh and enter the streets for hustling because there is no jobs out there, so why the certificate when I can read and write with secondary education.

Then, why did I spent all the years looking for certificate that I may not use tomorrow because streets pays more than salary.
I remember how I hustle during holidays to meet up the needs in school thinking after graduation good jobs are there waiting for me.
Should I said I wasted my time acquiring University education or what, somebody should answer me.
I think I regret Ever going to University.

KFBers, what do you think?

  1. You have not graduated yet, you are complaining. Let me tell you my story. I graduated in 2006. I started a business after I completed my youth corp, things were easy back then. In 2012, I went for my Masters and I completed it in january 2015. I spent all my money on school fees, research. etc. By the time I was through, I didn't really have much money on me and I was far above 30 years with no job experience. Few interviews I attended, I wasn't chosen. I had no money to pursue Phd. So last year may, I decided to apply for a teaching job in a school, it was during their third term, so I was asked to apply for the next session. I didn't have any choice than to wait. one day, I went out, before I came back, there was a power surge, and before you say jack, the whole house was on fire. I lost all my belongings, my clothes, my shoes, my phone, my mini laptop etc. Everything got burnt down in my presence and I couldn't do anything, till today, i have not recovered. I was frustrated and depressed, I was not suicidal but if a car came while I was crossing the road, I don't think I would move out of his way. I was sad, depressed, alone, and I felt disconnected from the world. I couldn't kill myself, because I know I would end up in hell fire , also my aged mother would be devastated. I didn't know what to do, the people I told didn't really help infact a man wanted to give me money to buy clothes and some other things but on a stupid condition, since no help came, I started taking sleeping pills, cough syrup, so that I would sleep for hours, that was the only thing that kept me going. Atleast, it kept me from crying, thinking, lamenting etc. Lateron through a friend, I managed to get a small tecno phone. I searched for jobs, but all to no avail . Then I started reading blogs just to keep me busy. I would go to linda ikeja blogs to participate on her Monday giveaway money. I would comment several times, pray so that she would pick my no and give me 20k but she would not pick my no. Infact i taught of begging celebrities for money but i was just too shy to do that. Im still unemployed at the moment, but my regret is that I went directly into business, if I had known, I would have gotten a job first before pursuing all other things. My advice is that you should graduate first then start job hunting immediately after your youth corp. it's easy for fresh graduates to get jobs and please be optimistic.

  3. Hmmm...another frustrated Nigerian. I think education is really important, so he hasn't wasted any time at all. Being a graduate is even an added advantage to whatever business he wants to do. And who knows, he might even get a good job o. Don't lose hope on Nigeria bro.

  6. Education is not for everybody, it's only advisable you get a degree. If you've got the entrepreneurial thing in you, go for it, the degree can wait. #IMO
