The current economical recession facing Nigeria today will never stop until Nigerians learn to be dependent, productive and self employed.
Last month I was opportune to visit eastern part of Nigeria Anambra State (Ewkusigo LGA) I visited the new corpers who were posted to that local government for service, and I had an interaction with some of the corpers who where serving in that local government.
Though it was kind of an interview I had with them, I came across a particular guy who said he is from Imo State Nigeria but he was posted to Ewkusigo LGA in Anambra State.
Then I asked him what he does and how he make his money while serving, though it was kind of embarrassing to him, because I was asking him that question, my intention was not to mock him, but I really wanted to see if I could help him, because one of my main vision is to help touch lives in different ways and aspects of life.
Okay, coming back to our conversation,
He then told me that he is using his monthly stipend paid to them by NYSC every month and also the money given to him by his parent to take care of himself while serving.
After hearing that, I came up with my second question,
Do you have a skill?
He was like, no he don’t have any skill acquisition, but he would like to learn any of them, so I decide to come up with this particular topic to help most corpers out there who don’t have any skill acquisition, and also help those corpers who don’t know how to make money working for themselves.
Okay so I told him that he should visit my blog in the next two days for list of skills that he can learn and also make great money for himself even while doing his service.
And I also adviced him that he should try to make good use of his monthly stipend given to him by NYSC and his parents to invest on whatever skill he have passion for than staying idol without a skill.
Now back to the main topic, if you are here reading this article and you are confused on what skill to learn or what skill to venture into, well don’t worry because after reading this great article you must surely discover one or two of the skills.
