He wrote, “Stop blaming the government for being unemployed despite your having a university degree. The government is not to blame. You chose to go to university to read a useless course that has no relevance to the nation or your environment instead of tailoring your university education to meet the needs of the labor market.”

Omokri highlighted the demand for professionals in various fields, saying, “The labor market needs teachers, doctors, engineers, agricultural workers, nurses, coders, web designers, system maintainers, etc. You read sociology, philosophy, theatre arts, linguistics, political science, library science, religious studies, etc.”

He also pointed out the impact of technological advancements on certain fields of study, adding, “Now that AI has rendered your course even more irrelevant than it was before, you have now joined the bandwagon to blame the government. Even you, do you go to the market to buy what you don’t need?

Omokri advised aspiring professionals to invest in education that is not only prestigious but also practical and in demand. He urged individuals to consider the evolving needs of the labor market and to choose courses that will equip them with the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in their chosen fields.
