Don’t be distracted by Yahoo boys, they will go to jail — VP Osinbajo
Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo has called on Nigerian youths not to be distracted by ‘yahoo boys’ because they will end up in jail.
He advised the youths to make efforts to access various programmes set up by the Federal Government and the Central Bank of Nigeria to support young entrepreneurs and other Nigerians.
The vice-president said this at the first convocation lecture of Kola Daisi University, in Ibadan, Oyo State, on Wednesday, November 3, the VP gave examples of many young Nigerians who have made it without cutting corners and urged the graduands and the youth to embrace integrity and character in order to excel in life.
In his words;
“Don’t be distracted by the yahoo yahoo boys that are coming up one day with fancy cars. Their days are always numbered. They will go to jail one day.”
The point, of course, is that; what is the point of making money when you can’t sleep well at night. All of the examples I’ve given, not one of them has wealthy parents. All of them did most, if not all, their education here in Nigeria.
However, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has advised Nigerian Youths to focus more on legitimate work rather than doing fraudulent work in the name of Yahoo to scam innocent people.
