Employability of Nigerian Graduates, the Role of Stakeholders
Abiodun-Oyebanji, Olayemi Jumoke
African Higher Education Review, v9 n1-2 p87-94 Sep 2015
This paper examines the worrisome issue of employability of Nigerian university graduates in recent times, which have become a great concern to all and sundry. Certain indices such as, lack of complementary life skills, low moral standards, low employment generating capacity of the Nigerina economy, and the certification mentality, are discussed. It is suggested that, Nigerian graduates can be made employable through the active involvement of all stakeholders such as higher institutions, graduates, employers, parents, and government. Institutions also need to update their curricular to reflect the labour market needs.
