Use Igbo apprenticeship model to build Nigerian economy, Reno tells Tinubu 

    Published By:

    Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri has urged President Bola Tinubu to use Igbo apprenticeship model to improve Nigerian economy.

    Reno made this known via his Twitter page on Saturday, he said Tinubu should study the Igbo apprenticeship in the informal business sector that can be used to tackle unemployment in the country.

    Likening the Igbo apprenticeship model to the South Korean chaebol business model, he said: “If President Tinubu wants to turn around the Nigerian economy in the shortest possible time, he ought to study the Igbo apprenticeship model.

    “It is the most successful informal business model in the world, as well as the most prolific venture capitalist scheme on Earth, producing more US dollar millionaires per capita than both Harvard and Yale Universities.

    “Igbo traders and merchants recreate wealth by taking on apprentices, almost as unpaid interns, who study their masters day to day business techniques and help them run their shops, markets and businesses.

    “After a period of time, their masters are required to financially set them up in their own businesses and guide them until they can stand on their own two feet.

    Imagine if this was in place in every state of Nigeria and practised by every ethnic group. Unemployment in Nigeria will almost vanish overnight.

    “This is how South Korea became an economic superpower, using the chaebol business model, which is similar to the Igbo apprenticeship model.”

    Speaking further he stated that, “The President should get the representatives of leaders of Alaba, Onitsha, Aba, and other entrepreneurial hotspots to Aso Rock, for a conference on how they can help government expand their business model to reach other Nigerians.

    “Let all Nigerian ethnic nationalities learn this business model from our oriental brothers. Ask them to teach your economic and finance minister how they do it. In fact, pick one of them and make him the minister. A trader who knows how to create wealth will make a better minister than a PhD technocrat who only knows how to speak grammar!

    “Our homegrown economic success will work better for us than borrowed money and ideas that may not fit our peculiar situation,” the ex-presidential assistant said.
