The story was originally shared on Twitter by user @Jtownlad14 who posted the photo of the  unemployed young lady who claims to have graduated with a Second Class Upper - Bachelor of Science in Computer Studies and took to the streets of Lekki Phase 1 in Lagos to look for a job.

"Just saw this girl in lekki1. If anyone can assist her it would be great," he tweeted.

It appears that more graduates are taking matters into their hands, as this occurrence comes on the back of a similar incident that took place in Portharcourt last week, where, a mother of two who had a Ph.D in Education Psychology took to the streets with a placard and sought employers who could offer her a teaching, lecturing or counseling job.

Similarly, the story was widely reported of how a desperate unemployed Nigerian UK-based job seeker got his dream job after standing at a train station with cardboard sign pleading for work in 2015.

You know what they say; when the going gets tough, the tough gets going, right?
