Earlier today, Tumihub engaged undergraduates on her WhatsApp platform about what they (the undergraduates) have achieved since the beginning of the ASUU strike and Corona break.
The question was asked on her WhatsApp status and several people engaged. The question was asked this way
“Undergraduates! Come out. What have you been doing since the ASUU strike and Corona Virus begin or you are just sleeping?”
Some people said they were just sleeping while others gave testimonies of achievements.
One of the testimonials stands out and it was from this lady that started from zero to make at least 100k through agriculture. She stayed back in school intentionally to find something doing.
See what she has to say
“In fact, I have achieved a lot of things, this break made me.
Earlier this year, I had no plans, no new year resolution because it has not been working for me. I only aimed at self-development.
Before the break, I was with a lot of problems, I had nothing on me but I have hope.
I stayed back at school because I surely know going home won’t help me (I will just be sleeping), though, it was a difficult decision but I must grow.
I’m an agricultural student, I perfected my agro skills by engaging more in practical agriculture, which is something I can’t learn within the four walls of the classroom.
I’m glad to tell the world that I started this year with nothing but I now have a net worth of about 100k. The process is not smooth, I lose, I gain experience and I move.
I have a bearing for myself and I have new dreams.”

Another person named Obafemi said so far, he has learned the following:
4. Graphics designing
5. I am a carpenter too.
All have been beneficial.
I realized that if society disappoints, you also disappoint society.
He also made a clear statement that
If you notice, the Nigerian youths aren’t lazy. It’s the society that makes it hard to thrive.
Why do u think Nigerians excel outside the country?
These days, we hear of best graduating students in foreign countries being black, then Nigerian. Check Harvard, Cambridge, Oxford, you must see at least 10 Nigerians in 100 students.
A Nigerian was appointed as mayor in Canada.
We aren’t lazy, but we just need a fertile society to thrive.
Tumihub concluded the conversation like this
It is a great privilege to learn something outside the four corners of your school. Ask graduates and they will tell you what being a graduate brings along.
If Job is not forthcoming, you start feeling undue pressures.
Ladies want to get married ASAP; Guys want to settle down but where is the money? Where is the job?
So, you now have the opportunity to pause that journey the will land you at that junction and all you can do is to waste it away?
Think about this distinct.
One more thing
Please, don’t just learn something for learning sake.
‘Because i don’t want to waste my time, let me just learn this’
It is fine and i also understand that no knowledge is lost but you can do better.
