The youths have been advised to equip themselves with necessary skills in order to stand on their own rather than seeking white collar jobs.
The advice was given by Mr Daniel Oluwasesan, a teacher at Akure Command secondary school, Akure.
The teacher while speaking with The Hope, noted that for someone to be a successful entrepreneur, he or she must be determined, focused, committed and be ready to sacrifice his or her time
Oluwasesan said: “Many graduates are afraid of taking risks, because of fear of failure, while some believe they can’t succeed by starting their business, forgetting that many great successful business moguls in Nigeria and of the world at large started as small scale business owners.”
He encouraged youths to have the mindset of developing skills that will be profitable and innovative to the growth of the country
Oluwasesan therefore called on the government to improve entrepreneurship among students by providing facilities such as loans and other resources that will motivate them to be self reliant and should also improve the economic, technology and industrial development of the country.
