Prioritizing entrepreneurial skill acquisition is a catalyst for national development. In order to alleviate or reduce the level of unemployment among the several unemployed graduates that are flooding the job market, there is a need for wider campaign programs on the benefits of entrepreneurial skills acquisition. This study therefore sought to investigate and unveil the various entrepreneurial skills in biology that are profitable to reduce overdependence on the government for jobs, or, in other words, to reduce the level of unemployment. Many of these programs have been prioritized, while others are less explored or not given due attention. However, this study discussed, among others, the following entrepreneurial skills in biology for self-reliance and national development: These include: science education book writing and editing, SPSS, Python programming, and R programming learning, biogas learning and production, bio-fermentation, bioinformatics, solid waste and polythene recycling and re-utilization, and bio-remediation. As a consequence of the findings of this study, the following recommendations were made: preference should be given to practical in the curriculum; government at all levels should provide adequate instructional materials, laboratory equipment, and other facilities. Justice should be displayed during the recruitment process to appoint only qualified and competent teachers who can teach biology effectively. Biology teachers should be encouraged to use appropriate methods to improve their teaching through innovation.
