Mr Olutimain Ilenre, following his inability to secure a job after graduation from University, has set ablaze all his original academic certificates, including his Bachelors of Arts, secondary school and NYSC discharge certificates.

The young Nigerian who could not hold back his frustration in a viral video sighted by this medium on Monday, is a graduate of History and International Studies from Ajayi Crowther University.

According to him, the current situation in the country has rendered his certificates useless.

“To get certificate in this country is like a waste of time,” he lamented.

Mr Ilenre added that even when travelling out of the country, the certificates are rendered useless.

He noted that he had been unable to sleep in the last week after recalling that all the jobs he had done for the past 13 years were jobs that his certificates were not needed.

With the current situation of things in Nigeria, Ilenre urged parents to empower their children to learn handwork and trade.

“I finished school in 2010 and did my NYSC in 2010/2011; till today, I haven’t used these certificates to get a job,” M Ilenre added.
