First class graduate in tears for fear of ending up unemployed like her brother who also graduated with a first class degree.
A young lady identified as Weleski, whose 20-year-old sister just graduated with a first-class degree from Rivers state university has shared a heartbreaking tale of the unemployment that plagues her family.
She shared a video of her sister crying in her graduation gown instead of the usual smiles and explained why.
According to her, her brother graduated with a first class last year and has been unemployed since then.
Weleski narrated how her sister worked hard to achieve her degree and was also scared she might end up like that.
“Today is suppose to be a very happy day in my family but I am extremely heartbroken 💔. This is my younger sister, a 20 year old girl that have dedicated her entire life and worked soo hard by combining academics and being the back bone of my mother’s mini Resturant business just so we can survive. I watch this young lady stay up almost all night to study just so she could make good grades like her immediate elder brother who also graduated with a first class Division from the Department of medical laboratory science. Today God has indeed answered our endless prayers and my girl has graduated with a First class Division and a CGPA of 4.80 from the Prestigious RIVERS STATE UNIVERSITY.
We had all vowed to make good grades so that We could free our parents from struggling and get retained by the university as lecturers, but today that dream cannot be seen coming forth 😞. Last year, my immediate younger brother who also graduated with a first class degree and was the Best graduating student from his department was promised by the Vice Chancellor of the university Professor Nlerum Sunday Okogbule under the encouragement and support of the Honourable Registrar of Medical laboratory science council of Nigeria (MLSCN) of an instant employment (lecturing job). This promise and great news brought instant happiness and gave joy and fulfilment to my entire family, we were all happy and believed our dreams had finally come to pass but to our greatest surprise, he was denied the employment”
