Mr. Usman who owns a food outlet and Indomie joint in the Diplomat area explained that the strike gave him the opportunity to go into the business full time two months ago.
He described the business as lucrative and that he also hired ten people to work with him in his two shops and he combined it with a Point of Sale( POS) business and sale of male and female bags, shoes and clothings.
His varieties include tea, noodles, bottled and canned drinks, masa, rice,pepper soup and meat.
According to Abubakar ,a plate of food sells from # 200 .
He also mentioned that he didn't access any loan or youths empowerment scheme to start the business but that he utilized the opportunity of COVID-19 lockdown where he started an egg and chicken distribution business.
Abubakar advised students to make good use of their time as he plans to forge ahead with his education and aspire to become great in his medical profession.
He further pleaded with the lecturers to consider the plights of students and reach an agreement with the Federal Government on the offers being presented to them.
Good luck to him.

The end of the matter is understanding that regardless of what is the issue or the problem. Humans beings needs to know how to turn their lemons to lemonade.
That's the best explanation of this man; he turned the asuu strike which is lemon into lemonade by doing something meaningful that's working for him. As it is now, he has got nothing to loose and infact has got everything to gain.
This man is an example of people that'd confidently say "if they like, they should call off the strike". "If they like, they should not call off".
This is because they've moved on with life and find out better things they can be doing aside being in the four corners of a school. And I believe this is the best mindset everyone should have. Whatever life throws at us, we are to turn those lemon into lemonade.
I figure that's the only way life won't be so unfair and cruel to us because life is naturally meant to be unfair and cruel. This one that FG has taken them to court, it is really well with us in this country.
At least he should he's doing something reasonable with his time at home.. what an industrious guy...

@Wonders: the ASUU situation remains a pitiable one in the country.
However, i commend this undergrad who is doing something with his time, at least he is going to get some money from his business.
My advice to all affected students is to get busy with stuffs so that they dont end up doing evil.
With the current boom in the affiliate marketting industry and IT, one can easily learn and engage in some IT and communication skills for later gains.
**Don't be a good student and a bad teacher.**
@Osaroju: You are absolutely correct and this just make me have more faith in the fact that everything always fall in place for our good if we can open our eyes to see.
It was thanks to pandemic that people became more exposed to these onlinee works. And now they're the life-saving for many students, me inclusive. Regardless, I really miss Jos alot, I miss being in unijos.
What does the government whant us to do again.👎
It is better than joining bad gang in the street at a least he will make some money , federal government and ASSU have something hidden within both of them, even some lectures are now into different types of job in other to get money.
Students are been affected and also the lectures because those lectures are not been paid for the past seven month .
That final year medical student who is now a food vendor is practically good because it is a better option for him to take , that is Nigeria for you.
I discover that in Nigeria a person don't plan life for himself or herself the country will plan your life for you and you must follow the step imagin a students who plan to spent four years to study a course in the university now using six or seven years to study so can you now see the reason why i said you can't plan your life but the country will do so for you .
ASSU is on strike for seven months and government are unable to see to the problem on ground , do we really have government in Nigeria of they are do they perform their responsibility , all the for federal university is on strike and they can't meet up with the assu requirement , Nigeria government is weak and can not regain their status anymore.
The medical student who later turn to a food vendor attendance is not to be blam that is the best option for him he will make profit daily life continue.
If I am that medical student even if school resume back I will not leave that food work I will continue with it because after graduating from the university there is not space vacancy to work so why will you be giving yourself headache you should quickly go into the food business and established your self.
Education is not been appreciate in Nigeria because there is no motivation for the lecturer and students as well .
Keep on with your work I appreciate your effort.
It is a better step you have taken.
