Jobless First Class Graduate Begs For Job On Twitter

 A first class Nigerian graduate took to Twitter to openly beg people to help her get a job.
Odufuwa Sola, 22, from Ogun State, has remained jobless since she graduated in 2015 from Ajayi Crowther University, Oyo State.

She was also the best graduating student in the university for that year with a 4.83 G.P.A. She had the honour of delivering a valedictory speech in the school.


So far, nobody has asked her to come over for a job interview.
Ms. Sola told PREMIUM TIMES she was inspired to resort to Twitter for help having seen other people with similar situation get help through the social media.
Ms. Sola said she has applied for employment at the Ajayi Crowther University, but that she was yet to get a reply from the school.
She has also submitted applications to several companies and organisations within the country.
“Most jobs I apply for are graduate trainee slots that are science-related,” Ms. Sola said, adding that she was not feeling sad at all that she has not been able to get a job.
“I know the situation of the country, though I didn’t expect it to take so long,” she said. “But I trust God.”
Also, she does not regret studying physics. She said she would do it again and again if she were to start her university education all over. “Physics is fun,” she said.
Ms. Sola’s dream is to work someday as a renewable energy analyst, she told PREMIUM TIMES.

Meanwhile, she has started learning tailoring at Ijebu-ode, Ogun State, where she resides, while waiting and hoping to be called up for a job interview soon.
“My family has been supportive, everyone around me is just wishing me the best and praying I get a job soon,” said Ms. Shola who lost her dad in 2015, few months to her graduation ceremony.
“My appeal to Nigerians is to help me get a job of my dream and passion. I know it’s not easy out there, but with the help of God, I know something good will happen soonest. Nigerians are good people, it’s just the situation we find ourselves in as a country,” she said.
When PREMIUM TIMES contacted the spokesperson of the Ajayi Crowther University, Alvan Ewuzie, he said that giving first class graduates instant employment in the university depended on the availability of space in the department where the student graduated from.

Mr. Ewuzie said he was aware that the vice chancellor of the university had offered employment recently to two first class graduates of the school.


The Head of Physics with Electronics department of the school, Christopher Olowokere, told this newspaper that he was aware of Ms. Sola’s situation.
“The vice chancellor is interested in hiring first class materials, but for now there is no opening in the school.
“She needs to be patient. She could find a secondary school where she could teach for now,” Mr. Olowokere said.
Nigeria’s unemployment rate has been on a steady increase in the past few years. It rose to 14.2 per cent in the fourth quarter of 2016, according to a recent data released by the National Bureau of Statistics, NBS.

  4. "Ms. Sola said she has applied for employment at the Ajayi Crowther University, but that she was yet to get a reply from the school."

    Big shame on the management of this university. Does she even need to apply? Safe me the crap talk by the spokesperson that giving first class graduates instant employment in the university depended on the availability of space in the department where the student graduated from. That's nonsense. She could be employed in another capacity in the school Na.
    A bigger shame on the vice chancellor for suggesting she could go apply in a secondary school. Imagine! Can he say that to her own daughter? I don't think so.
