Economic Recession and the ample opportunities

by Gerald Umeh

“The Chinese use two brush strokes to write the word ‘crisis.’ One brush stroke stands for danger; the other for opportunity. In a crisis, be aware of the danger–but recognize the opportunity.”― John F. Kennedy

coverAs Our dear country battles economic recession which is obviously as a result of the ruling class, the truth is what are you doing as an individual to help the country. Data from the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) have shown that well over 60% of Nigerians live in abject poverty and the fact that close to a million jobs have been lost this year alone shows how deep we seem to be falling in to the ditch. In quarter one of 2016, the total number of employment generated was 79,469 jobs, representing a sharp decline of 83.1 percent (389,605) year on year and 84.1 percent (420,056) from the previous quarter. This obviously is a sharp decline in employment generation in the 1st quarter of 2016. There is no sign of things getting better anytime soon, at least not with the Nigerian economy recording a negative growth of -0.36 percent.

There is no sign of things getting better anytime soon, at least not with the Nigerian economy recording a negative growth of -0.36 percent. Majority of these unemployed are youths and believe me, this is a time bomb that is fast counting down hence, the urgent need for us to collectively and individually find a solution now. The incessant case of traffic robbery on our major cities especially

The incessant case of traffic robbery on our major cities especially Lagos, port Harcourt and most recently, the growing cases of armed robbery in Calabar gives us an insight into where we are headed. The united nations have also pointed poverty and unemployment as a fuel for terrorism, believe me, we cannot deal with another Boko-Haram.

My name is Umeh Gerald Offordile, I am a graduate of Electronics and Computer Technology from the prestigious university of Calabar, I am also an Indian trained IT professional with certifications in Cisco, Microsoft, ITIL and EC-Council’s Ethical Hacking. I actively blog on the need for Nigerians to embrace freelancing on my blog www.onlinehustle.com.ng. I have been passionate about making money on the internet from my university days and today I am recording awesome success on Fiverr, a website where buyers and sellers meet and exchange digital goods for money. With my personal students recording similar success on Fiverr under my mentorship, I want to contribute to the welfare of my beloved country by reaching more youths and empowering them by teaching what I have learnt, this would create employment for so many and reduce social vices which

I have been passionate about making money on the internet from my university days and today I am recording awesome success on Fiverr, a website where buyers and sellers meet and exchange digital goods for money. With my personal students recording similar success on Fiverr under my mentorship, I want to contribute to the welfare of my beloved country by reaching more youths and empowering them by teaching what I have learnt, this would create employment for so many and reduce social vices which is due to poverty to the minimum, there is no better time for this project to be birthed than in this period of economic recession.

This is what I am doing!
