By the time economic activities resumed, inflation had skyrocketed. Life became difficult for the generality of the people. Many people including tertiary institutions students are developing shortcuts in the name of spiritual activities. Continuing in this direction portends danger in the future. Therefore, this study entitled: Designing lifelong frameworks for graduates’ employability in Nigeria is embarked upon. The purpose of the study is to emplace lifelong learning frameworks that would encourage graduates in embarking on sustainable and legal jobs after leaving the school. The population of the study comprised final year students from some selected Universities in Nigeria. The study employed research design of survey type, using appropriate statistics for analysis. Focus group discussion also be used to elicit information from the respondents. Findings revealed that respondents disagreed with the view that obtaining degree programme could serve as foundation for building future career.
