Nigerian graduates are increasingly making an involuntary career transition as a result of the country’s persistent unemployment problem.

One of the stories details the plight of a young Nigerian woman who switched careers from medicine to shoemaking.

The medical doctor turned shoemaker studied medicine in school but opted to pursue another career path due to the challenges of unemployment.

The woman in question, who identified herself as a medical shoemaker, posted a video reel that showed when she graduated from college and what she does now.

The video elicited mixed comments online, with some urging the government to provide a conducive climate for young people to prosper.

“I’m terrified, this is my tale,” says @Verona Des.

“Niger,” says Rela Bed.
