A man has advised that people shouldn’t give up if Nigeria doesn’t value them stating that other countries will.
The tweep with the handle @TheTaofik asserted this on Twitter as he celebrated his good friend, Adeola Sanusi, who got a big job in London at the age of 32.
Rejected in one country, cherished in another
@TheTaofik said his friend Adeola had graduated from the University of Lagos with a BSc in finance at the age of 28.
Adeola was however rejected for graduate roles he put in for as companies and organisations cited his age as a limiting factor.
Four years after the rejections in Nigeria, Adeola now works at Bloomberg London office as a sales analyst. His job requires that he covers Europe and US operations of the firm.
At 28, finished first class, BSc in Finance from Unilag but couldn’t qualify for a grad role in Nigeria due to age factors. At 32, Now working at Bloomberg London office as a sales analyst covering Europe and US corporates. If Nigeria doesn’t value you another country will

“I graduated at 26 with a 2.1 in Accounting, did NYSC at 27 and then followed by my Master’s degree. Nigerian companies said I was too old to be employed. Saw people with lesser qualifications get chosen ahead of me for a job because they were younger. Nigeria will frustrate you.”
“At 26, I graduated First Class. The first person to finish with a First for over thirty years of my department’s establishment. I wasn’t considered for a GA coz I’m not an indigene of the state. Two of my course mates were employed as GAs with Second Class. I’m still pushing.”
