A 25-year-old barber, Sani Hussaini, on Monday advised unemployed youth to go into barbing business, as it was easy to learn and rewarding.
Sani said the business could be learnt within months, if an apprentice is dedicated and ready to learn.
“I learnt barbing from one of my friends who is also a barber; I started with barbing children and later adults before I got my freedom to start on my own.
” I now make N4,000 to N5,000 daily from barbing and I have trained three people who are now well established barbers,” he said.
Hussaini, who is a secondary school leaver, said although the business has been paying his bills, he would also add laundry to it. so as to have additional source of income.
He said young people should avoid the tendency of staying idle waiting for non existent government jobs, instead should learn a trade to become self reliant.
