I will like to share a secret with you. It is a secret
because lots of people don’t know about this, but it is also an open secret
because it is obvious, and it’s been staring us in the face all along.
The job market is saturated; as a matter of facts, it
is over-saturated. Everyone you know is looking for a job; everyone is looking
for someone else to employ him/her in a job.
Not a lot of people explore the opportunity of
starting a business or to be an employer of labour. A lot of people do not
understand that the difference between the employer and employee is the
presence of a will to act upon a dream and vision. All of us have dreams and
aspirations, no matter how small they maybe.
But this is the startling statistics: The United Kingdom
as a successful country relies heavily on the strength and sheer number of
small and medium enterprises [SMEs] for her growth; these SMEs constitute about
99.3% of all private sector businesses at the start of 2016. There are over 5.5
million private sector businesses in the United Kingdom at the start of 2016
and the number keeps increasing. Total employment in the SMEs was about 15.7
million i.e. 60% of all private sector employment in the UK. [FSB]
The population of the United Kingdom is about 65
So how does this concern us as Nigerians and what can
we do about it. The answer to this is quite simple; let us start employing one
another. Instead of coming out of university to join the millions of other job
seekers, why not join the 1% who are employers? All you need is your ideas and
the will to go for your dream. There is a network being put in place to support
small and medium businesses, to foster growth and expansion which will
consequently provide the much-needed jobs and employment opportunities.
