SAD: Graduate Commits Suicide After Three Years Of No Job



We are all witnesses and victims when it comes to how graduates go about suffering after school. 

We know it hurts very much to be unemployed in Ghana but does not encourages one to indulge on a suicide act.
Well, we made a stop on one Facebook user by name Poko Poko who made a shocking and sad post on how he lost a neighbor and friend Yussif through suicide because he’s been unemployed for over 3 years after graduating. 

 Hmmmm; Check post below

I’ve never felt this sober in my life; I write this with tears drawing contours on my cheeks.
I’ve this Muslim friend in my hood called Yussif. Yesterday I closed
from work and got home around 7:18PM only to find him sitting at the
corner of a park doing nothing. When he saw me coming, as usual ‘boys
boys’ thing, he started “Poko, a hear say your money come oo”.. and I
jokingly replied ” Charley the money de33 ecome but time no dey to spend
am”.(I lied). Right after saying that, I could see sadness written all
over his face but I ignored it, cracked few jokes with him and started
walking home. He called me back and said, “Poko, Charley ehard oo. A
come dey house like 3years after uni but no job. Momee too dey give me
pressure say make a do wild den start life. A dey see say boys all dey
go dey come but me p3 notin dey go on give me. A see you p3, den a shy.
You plete uni and now you dey job fine fine. Hommie, a dey feel say abi
waste oo”.a just wan end everything and be free”….
My friend got
me all sober with his lamentations but there was little I could do to
help. I simply said ” Charley ego bee, gave him 10gh but he declined.
That was how my meeting with him ended.
I’m here on my bed watching
movies and I can hear shouts and cries from their compound. Only to go
out and find out that My friend Yussif just committed suicide this dawn;
he took some unprescribed drugs in excess.
Yussif, the first and only son of his parents is dead and gone.
Maybe I should have paid more attention to the latter part of his lamentations(I know you didn’t read it, go back and read).
Maybe I should have told him, me being all dressed up for work doesn’t
mean i work in any big company but I only go to town for “kpakpakpa” to
make a living.
Maybe I should have spent hours talking to him when I saw him at the corner of the park.
Maybe I shouldn’t have lied that “I’ve made more money now after
university and only needed time to spend the it’. I only said that to
portray satire.
Maybe when he declined my 10gh offer, I should have assisted and ensured he bought some food with that money.
Maybe I should have gone home with him and spend time watching videos
on 4syte-TV together. Just to take his mind off stress and over
thinking.

Maybe most importantly I should have spent hours
convincing him that ” no where cool ” and that we all are suffering but
choose to keep it to ourselves.

I don’t know why, but a part of me feels I could have somewhat prevented this suicide.
Suicide is real
If you find a friend suffering from depression or over thinking and
continually makes suicidal remarks, get closer to him/her to talk them
out.

Rest in Peace Yussif
