REASONS WHY THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD NOT PAY UNEMPLOYED GRADUATES.

It is no longer a secret amongst HR companies, departments and corporate organizations that majority of Nigerian graduates are unemployable. I.e. Most of them do not possess working, technical, intellectual and moral skills to help in the growth of any corporate organization.

The average Nigerian youth is more concerned with how much he will be paid as salary at the end of each month that how much value he can help add to the company employing him.

Majority of our Nigerian breed graduates today have VERY POOR written and spoken skills. With a whole lot of them getting carried away using short text to write official letter, application, and cover letters.

Knowing we have more LAZY youths today than we have ever had before, I strongly believe the N5,000 the government instead to give "unemployable unemployed graduates" will only encourage them to lay back and become more useless to themselves and the society.

The government should rather channel such funds to the building of skill acquisition centers in every local government area in each state of the federation.

Today where Alcohol, gambling, smoking and betting have become the norm in the Nigerian society, such allowance will only last most of the youths a day or two before it vanishes due to their addiction on these vices.

After a few months of receiving these supposed allowances, these youths will start demanding for an increase (like NYSC, and Labour). They will shut down government parastatals if ever their demands aren't met.


The government should encourage her youths to learn the basics and tenets of hard work and not encourage them to relax and be fed. No good father does that to his children.


These same youths rather that encourage the present government fight corruption, actually are the ones supporting all corrupt politicians and condemning the presidents fight against corruption. The president should give a condition that it will only start paying unemployed youths allowance if it can recover at least N500Billion naira from past corrupt officials. Only then will the youths start supporting government in its fight against corruption.

I agree

I disagree.

Op, I don't think you know the daily challenges of an unemployed person? Meanwhile, the unemployed youths did request for monthly payments from the Federal Government, they were the one that deemed it fit to make promises and every promise is a debt.

Therefore, you have no point.

They might not have asked directly, but they surely did indirectly.

These are the type of threads they totally avoid because it exposes their greed, laziness and unrealistic expectations.

I disagree... while your arguement is well placed you ignored the main idea behind the welfare payment .

1= 5000 can't make u save enough to. buy land , car etc it's to allow you have 'something' in your pocket to manage monthly till you secure employment.

2= how a person chooses to spend that 5k is his/her palaver because at the end if you save it it remains in the banking system for loans to others and if you spend it , it becomes revenue to others and tax to govt thus economy remains buoyant.

3= also as a recent ex-corps member I can boldly tell u the call for increase is more due to the lack of savings one can make from 19800 after deducting expenses. if a corper today earned 30k Majority would have @ least 100k when they wrap up service. rememebef majority are sent to village schools and not even places to develop their skills actquired during school

4= we can't ALL be entrepreneur or employed ... there will always be unemployment /unemployed youths ,thus nations cater for them until they off the unemployment line

I like the fact you added the Nigerian angle but let's be honest to ourselves .. we all know goovernments key responsiblities and when they fail they should compensate like other nations do.. or is it only politicians who should receive something

Skidskid, in as much you tried to disagree with me in a very intellectual and mature way, I respect your views but still stand that government should not give out a dime. Rather, they should setup manpower training centers in areas of Agriculture, Mining and Solid Minerals, Arts/Sculpture/ Painting, Draftman/Architecture/Construction, Marine/Vvessel Engineering/ Electrical/Mechanical works. Now these centers are not university but advance real-time practical skills to help you secure jobs faster and reduce the number of expatriates taking up all the skilled jobs in Nigeria.

Giving N5,000 will only worsen things.
