Of What Use Is A University Degree In Our Society Today? by Rapmoney(m): 4:02am On Dec 28, 2012
Yesterday, I came across this thread created by one dude who felt or should I say 'convinced' that he was being respected unnecessarily by members of his community because he happens to be a graduate. I laughed. Funny enough, the poor guy graduated 2 months ago! It seems most prospective graduates and the newly graduated are yet to come to terms with reality, or should I say they hate reality? Some still think that they are 'very special people' in the Nigerian environment. WRONG!!!

The bitter truth is that nobody gives a damn about your certificate because there are so many graduates out there. Nigeria is a place where money supercedes the highest degree. Who is a professor to speak when people like General Gbamu-Gbamu, General Migwor, General To(m) Po(lo) , General This and General That have not spoken? Even rich illiterate business people employ graduates as Personal Assistants and pay them 20k bullshi(t) every month!

Apart from having a degree, the present situation demands that parents should make their kids undergo training in a particular trade for 2 yrs before going to the university, especially, those who leave secondary school at the annoying age of 14! They can use such knowledge to create wealth for themselves while in higher institution and become independent before 22!

About 95% of final yr students in our tertiary institutions don't even know what they want to do when they leave school. Pity(ma' face down)

Your society is not limited to Nigeria and whatever education you got in Nigeria can be useful to you outside of Nigeria.

It boils down to how effectively you put it to use (how beneficial) against all odds.
