If you are asked to solve a problem in Nigeria what would that be?
It is unemployment. I am pleading on behalf of all the students out there, both the undergraduate and graduate, that our government should put all hands on deck to create job in other to help the masses, immediately after school and also to help build up the potential, gift deposited in the young ones out there to be able to reach the world at large.

I am grateful to God Almighty, my family and my supporters for believing in me and my dreams. I say a big thanks to you all.
Whats your advice to young people like you?
Firstly, I want them to believe in God because with Him all things are possible. They should believe they can make it in life if only they keep trying, its not always easy at the start but remember quitting is never the solution and also an ark wasn’t built in a day, its a gradual process, so work hard now to be able to add to the development of this country.
