(By Iheanyi Ezinwo) – The level of participation of graduates of institutions of higher learning in Nigeria in entrepreneurship has been described as very unsatisfactory, and one satisfactory f the limiting factor is their lack of understanding of what Entrepreneurship is.
This is the position of Dr
Nchelem Elenwo, a lecturer in the department of Management at Ignatius Ajuru University of Education at Rumuolumeni in Port Harcourt

Speaking with Notable Outcome in his office on Friday, the university don maintained:
“Graduates do not even understand what entrepreneurship is all about even when they are in school .

” Secondly most of the graduates Will want to secure a paid employment rather than doing jobs that they think will not pay them enough.

“Apart from this, the environment also will not help matters as they may not want to face government task forces that are every where chasing small business owners away from the streets.

“We can as well talk about government not being interested in allowing them to access funds to enable them set up even a small businesses”, he argued.

Dr.Nchelem Elenwo however explained that, “if government can
provide the much needed amenities and infrastructure like electricity, roads, water, etc that some graduates may want to engage in small businesses like barbing saloon, pure water distribution, etc”.
