Nigerian Billionaire businessman, Obinna Iyiegbu, better known as Obi Cubana, has opened up about his struggle for employment opportunities after completing the one year National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) scheme.
Obi Cubana graduated from the University of Nigeria Nsukka in 1998 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science. He searched for job after the NYSC but he couldn’t find one.
He was engaged in an interview where he spoke about his journey after graduating from school and struggling for a job. He explained that he made his first big break with N1 million after he delved into the business world after school.
He said: “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 added.
