Former Governor of Lagos State, Nigeria, Babatunde Fashola said he would have been working at the post office but for his passion for law.
The former Governor, who is now one of Nigeria most powerful Ministers said after graduating from the University of Benin, he couldn’t get a job and his father tried getting him a job at the Nigerian Postal Service(NIPOST).
“I had a different passion and that was being in the courtroom; I therefore had to go for my dream to find a job that would help my career. It took me a while before I could get a job and that meant I was jobless for several months after NYSC”
He advised young people to build themselves and impact the nation. “I am happy to see young people doing great things in their various areas of business. The better Nigeria, we hoped for begins with us.”
Fashola was at an entrepreneur program organized by the Young Business Leaders of Nigeria (YBLN).
