After working in Port Harcourt, Rivers, the state capital for 7 years, Blessing Wilberforce lost her job for her inability to cope with the newly introduced technology in her department.

Few months later, she went in search of another and she discovered that, even with all of her experience, she wasn’t prepared for the modern work force. When prospective employers asked about her computer skills, she had no answer.

It turns out “that is extremely important,” said Blessing, who  needed help with using spreadsheets and other entry-level office computer tasks. She is now enrolled in computer training courses offered by Rivers State University and by Experience Works, a nonprofit national job training organization.

Helen Frank, the director of Experience Works in Rivers, said the classes taught “very basic computer skills,” beginning with “how to turn on the computer.” “They learn a little bit of Word, learn a little bit of the Internet and Basic computer operation.


Even when computer  have embedded themselves into our modern life, there are still millions of people who remain adamant to this challenge/opportunity. No one knows how many they are, because there is almost no credible research to assess Nigerians’ overall computer skills.

For these nation, finding a new job during a time of high unemployment can be extremely difficult without computer skill.

Economists at the Institute of Technology’s Rivers School of Management, who highlighted the lack of data, lamented recently that researchers have, at best, “only cloudy information on technology use” and “levels and kinds of job skill requirements.”


 “Some people do not own computers, and others do not have the computer skills to complete online job applications,” and “our higher institution of learning are not helping student either” said Florence George, director of the Achievers Career Marketplace, which drew more than 1,000 unemployed workers to its annual job fair few years ago.


Traffic from job-seekers has been heavy on computers at the Greater Move branch of the Kadmon Industry, where the manager is reporting on one of the areas hardest-hit by the economic recession.

Most of the problems that arise with the computers are very basic, said Skilltouch ICT Hub, who patiently showed users how to operate the computer, use the mouse and pressed the key to unlock the capital letter setting and many more.
