Billionaire businessman, Obinna Iyiegbu, popularly called Obi Cubana, has revealed how he suffered seeking for employment opportunities after completing the mandatory one year National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) scheme.
Obi Cubana, who graduated in 1998 with a degree in Political Science from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, said after serving the nation in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, he could not secure a job.
He made this known while speaking in an interview with BBC Pidgin following the burial of his mother which became a topic of discussion on social media.
The burial was one of the most attention grabbing public events in the country in recent time, as billionaire young men and women engaged in a show of wealth.
According to him, he was however, able to make his first N1 million through an entrepreneurial venture after failing to secure a job.
“After undergoing my compulsory National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) programme in Abuja, I started searching for a job all to no avail.
“That made me start some small jobs and from there I became a real estate agent. I usually get five percent of every task that is successfully executed. It was along the line that I and my colleagues met a man who asked us to help him furnish his house.
“We did it very well that he gave me N500,000 separately from the profit of N600,000 which I also made from the deal. That made it N1.1 million in total. It was after my NYSC that I made my first one million naira,” he said.
