Dangote Refinery: Increase Your Knowledge Base by ytdivine(m): 8:50am On May 23, 2023
The much awaited industrial revolution is set. The positive change is here, about to happen only to the prepared minds. Someone rightly said, and I quote " over 70% skill staff that will work in the refinery will be Indians ". That's an indisputable fact. The question is why is it so ? Of course you know the answer - Nigeria lack skill workers. India is top in the rank of poor nations just like Nigeria but they kept on improving daily. Unfortunately, for Nigeria, especially the youth, the energy is used negatively. Time and data wasted on ethnic divisions, unfruitful relationship, nude videos, etc. You can't be doing the same thing continuously and expect different results. The truth is that no serious and future minded individuals will engage in the vices above. Yes, there is high level of unemployment in Nigeria, whose cause ? the opportunity of employment is here and Indians are taking it over? Why wouldn't they ? The are prepared ahead of time. Nigerians are not.
Now, let revolt and chase them away and take our job positions ! Remember we have other four refineries before, none is working because we lack the technical skills to maintain them. Also, remember Ajaokuta Steel company is moribund for same reason.
Now, we must wake up from our sleep and take over what is ours. This is a gradual process.
The required knowledge is scare, hidden and unavailable. Even when available, the cost is too high. I was privileged and opportune to acquire this knowledge and cannot die with it.
In this thread, I will be dishing out the industrial skills. Subscribe to the YouTube channel below and join the moving train.

You mean you are a 'grajuwet' of Nnamdi 'Azikuwe' University?

Dangote group is managed by Indians and am privileged to have worked with a lot of them. I will tell you some secret. If you leave Dangote companies to be managed by Nigerians, they will collapse within six months. Tribalism and Nepotism will bury them. Dangote knows this, the reason for being managed by foreigners.
For you to work in the complex, it must be on merit mostly.
There are many entrances to the complex:
1. Fresh graduate/trainee
2. Experience recruit
3. Contract staff
4. Expatriates etc
However, whichever road you follow enter, you have to congratulate yourself for not finding it easy.
Sometime ago, I applied to work at Chivita company, CHI Limited managed by Indians. I got the job and will relay my experience to you. First, it was aptitude test which I know I didn't performed well but my name scaled through the second stage. Why ?- My CV was stronger than the aptitude test result. I went through about three stages, all bordered on technical knowledge, the final stage was salary negotiation.
I remember, some of the questions were
1. What's the difference between solid state relay and electromagnetic relay
2. Differentiate between Sensor and Transducer
These and others, I answered correctly and that earned me the job.
Most people here are young graduates, and may not have entered factory before. Some are suffering from I too know but know nothing in reality. Please calm down and help yourself.
The truth remains that you're likely going to lose the offer having gone long way on the journey as a result of shallow knowledge.
At this point, if we put your knowledge base on a scale, what will be the value ?

If you're lazy type, even if you succeeded in being employed, either you remain stagnant in one position or you may be ejected. Before my first job engagement, I studied more than I did during my final year exam. Those theories you read in school must be applied to the real job life. Let's me tell you why you should get serious.
Let's say you're employed as an electrical engineer. Depending on the organization, you might be expected to get used to the system within three or six months. If not well rooted in knowledge, even after one year, you still see yourself floating. Six months is probation period - Time to confirm your appointment.
This is how your inefficiency will be exposed. Majority of the organizations believed that three months is enough for you to get used to the system after which you're scheduled to run a shift. If given a shift to run as an electrician for example, and you're not able to solve the electrical problems that occurred during your shift, just consider yourself to have lost the job.
You can now see the reason to get serious and advance your knowledge base.

Do you know that what boost your confidence in any interview is what you know. Let me sound it clear to you, Aptitude test is a filter to reduce the number to a manageable size after which the major - the knowledge based interview. The earlier you start learning industrial processes and activities, the better.
Let's me ask , how much do you know about industrial electronics ? this is something you cannot avoid and escape. Mechanical, electrical, process, production, industrial, and chemical engineers, you can't do well without good knowledge of electronics. Same to those that will be in quality control department I.e. Industrial chemistry, microbiology, biochemistry, food technology etc
These electronics parts are very expensive and easy to damage. Let's take for example, something broke inside the machine, and you as mechanic has to fix the problem, ideally, an electrician should be close to assist you but may not be available all the time. In the case of not having an assistance from electrician, you have to fix the problem alone. There is every tendency that you might damage something if you're not very knowledgeable in this regard. The consequences may be unbearable.
Please increase your knowledge base.

Do you know that your salary at the entry level will be negotiated base on your assessment. Two people with same qualification will be paid differently base on what they intend to offer.
Also, future salary adjustment will be on your performance. There is one thing young graduates don't know, on the job floor, there is a lot of identity competition. Everybody wants to stands out as the major problem solver. Nobody will cover your inefficiency. Problems you could not solved will be recorded against you. Credit goes to your colleagues that solved same. Promotion is simply base on that, no two ways about it.
My dear, for your interest sake, start reading, researching, and learning on your future Jobs.

💭Misfortunes and hardships serve a purpose.

🎯Some takeaways from this post are:

➡️Unfairness, betrayal, loneliness, bad luck, loss, rejection, pain—they're all part of being human. We can either be better or bitter from it.

➡️Life itself is a chain of events. In a cyclic manner, it puts you into circumstances and exposes you to every facet.

➡️Beneath this opportunity lies the challenge of facing these issues with fitting attitudes and positive mental approach.

➡️ Growth mindset is an abstract concept, it helps us to focus on the problem and find ways to solve it despite challenges.
