Nigerian Youth has been advised to pursue high paying skills rather than spending year to study outdated degree courses in our various higher institutions.
Mr. Reno Omokri, a former special assistant to the former president of Nigeria, His Excellency President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, gave this piece of advise in a statement on his official Twitter account that considers High-Paying Skills Rather Than Outdated Degrees.
Reno Omokri said in his twit: “Instead of spending four years reading a course like sociology, philosophy, anthropology, political science, library science, and so on at university, just go and learn a high-income skill like nursing, cloud computing, blockchain engineering, artificial intelligence, web design, coding, programming, ethical hacking, and analytics for between six and eighteen months. You will earn more in a lifetime than most university graduates”.
“The world has changed. Many university courses have expired. They belong in a museum. Maybe a few people can read them to preserve some knowledge. But when you have hundreds of thousands studying them at the degree level, they will never find real-life, applicable jobs for those degrees”. “And they and their courses end up being a drain on society. Get a skill instead of a semi-useless degree!
