How It Started
On 9th of August, 2013, the Association of Nigerian Graduates Against Unemployment started like a joke on Nairaland.com as National Association of Unemployed Graduates when a post went viral about graduates coming together to form an association or movement to stop unemployment. Most people saw the idea as a very good initiative that will go a long way in influencing government policies to create a place for unemployed graduates in the national budget.
Things to Note
Graduates have been sidelined for years in Nigeria, jobs are not forthcoming and graduates find refuge in obtaining masters forms while some depend on their parents for daily bread. Nigerian graduates play video games better than their counterparts in other countries, yet some people speak about being entrepreneurs. We ask, entrepreneurship without enabling environment?
