Yazid Surajo, a young Nigerian man with a master's degree, has said he prefers his scavenging work to staying idle.
The young man has tried to get a white-collar job but all to no avail and he decided to engage in a menial job to survive.
The master's degree holder said it's better to be a scavenger than staying idle.
Speaking with Daily Trust, Yazid said he applied for Nigerian Army, Navy, and Air force but none of them was successful.
In his words;
"I also applied for Nigerian Security and Civil Defense Corps, Nigerian Immigration Service, Customs Service, Fire Service, Correctional Service, Nigerian Police, and the recent one that I applied was National Drug Law Enforcement Agency NDLEA which they called me for an aptitude test and up till date, I have neither received a message nor heard about anything about the test."
He said he gave his scavenging work more attention when he realised that getting a job in Nigeria was difficult
Yazid studied history at the Umar Musa Yar’adua University, Katsina, and obtained his master's degree from Bayero University, Kano.
The young man called on the youths to start their own business with the little they have at their disposal.
