With the limited white-collar jobs available, Nigerians are now creating opportunities for themselves instead of waiting for the government to provide opportunities for them.

Many are getting creative these days instead of sitting around and doing nothing. Recall that a young Nigerian man identified as Tosin Arogundade invented a pressing iron that uses gas.

Tosin said he alongside one other person had been working on the project for three years, adding that their invention is up to standard. He said they need help for their invention to be mass-produced for use.

The young man's invention is timely in a country where electricity is one of the major problems facing the populace.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a Nigerian entrepreneur identified as Nnaemeka C Ikegwuonu invented solar-powered refrigerators to help rural fish and produce markets in Nigeria.

The young man operates ColdHubs, which uses transformative technology that tackles several problems at once.

Ikegwuonu is helping farmers to gain more profits as they are able to preserve their fish, fruits and vegetables.

Spoilage, which cuts down the profits that could be made, is being avoided through ColdHubs, which currently serves 3,517 farmers and fishermen.

The company has so far installed 24 Hubs and saved over 20,000 tons of food from spoilage. The firm employed 48 women to service the refrigerators.
