“How Nigerian Government resorted me to become an Okada Man” – UNN Graduate


A Nigerian 38-year-old bachelor’s degree holder, Temitope Aladesanwa, has narrated how the economic factor of Nigeria resorted him to become a motorcycle rider (Okada)

The married man who is a 2014 graduate of political science from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, uttered that he wanted to work with the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps and Nigeria Immigration Service, but his applications were refuted on different occasions as a result of age regulation.

The Nsukka-based man identified further that multiple failures and his eagerness to feed his children plummeted him to become an Okada man.

His words:

“The first problem I had after my youth service was that companies were requesting five to 10 years of job experience. Over the years, it became the issue of age because I was around 30 when I completed my youth service but now, I am 38. Most of the jobs out there now are requesting a lower age.”

“In the past, I applied to the NSCDC, immigration and the police. In fact, I wanted to apply for the immigration recruitment that was done last year, but having seen the age limit, I couldn’t because it would just be another wasted effort. It is painful that I spent a lot of money schooling and ended up doing this work; this was not the reason I went to school to obtain my degree.”

Question of the day: 

How have the Nigerian government affected your career?
