How I searched everywhere for job after NYSC - Obi Cubana

How I searched everywhere for job after NYSC - Obi Cubana

Obinna Iyiegbu, often known as Obi Cubana, a Nigerian billionaire businessman, has recounted how he looked for work after completing the one-year National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) scheme.


Obi Cubana, a political science graduate of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, said he was unable to find work after serving the country in the Federal Capital Territory of Abuja.


Following his mother's burial, which became a topic of conversation on social media, he spoke to BBC Pidgin in an interview yesterday.


The burial was one of the most attention grabbing public events in the country in recent time, as billionaire young men and women engaged in a show of wealth.


According to him, he was however, able to make his first N1 million through an entrepreneurial venture after failing to secure a job.


“After undergoing my compulsory National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) programme in Abuja, I started searching for a job all to no avail.


“That made me start some small jobs and from there I became a real estate agent. I usually get five percent of every task that is successfully executed. It was along the line that I and my colleagues met a man who asked us to help him furnish his house.


“We did it very well that he gave me N500,000 separately from the profit of N600,000 which I also made from the deal. That made it N1.1 million in total. It was after my NYSC that I made my first one million naira,” he said.
