An American based Nigerian researcher, Engr. Kienuwa Obaseki, has began to explore the challenges facing Nigeria students and graduates, with ambitions to win a place in society.

Obaseki revealed this at an interactive session with newsmen on Monday in Benin City, Edo State Capital.

The proposed “College of Personal National Advancement (COPANA) model, according to him would ease up on austerity caused by inexplicably jarring unemployment level in the Country.

Obaseki is relying on his expertise as a former worker the Nuclear power plant and retiree of Engine Division of Mercedes Benz in the United States.

His initiative is tailored towards discovery of new talents and assist students with exceptional skills with startups grants.

According to him, “COPANA is a bridge between University and society. Those to man the Department will be drawn wold be Professor Emeritus.

“They (University dons) will guide students and build synergy between industry and Academia especially in Sciences and agriculture.

Other areas of interest are Coal generation, fabrication, food production, electronic and housing equipment.

“The worst thing that can happen to is to graduate from School and retire back home.

“Whether you like it or not, unemployment is causing some instability already.

“Boko Haram is abating as a result of economic failure”, he said.

“Ask yourself, do you foresee the possibility of creating 5 million jobs per annum when Nigeria’s population growth is increasing by 5 million every year.

In the meantime, Engr. Kienuwa Obaseki is due to strike a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with University of Benin and Ambrose Alli University soon.

In the absence of a national safety net system to alleviate poverty, and shrinking white Curler jobs, the COPANA project is expected to boost the prospects of students and graduates.
