These has been going on for so long and it keeps going from generation to generation.yes we know the country is hard and things are not easy,but many Nigerian youths are not educated,they Prefer to engage themselves in all sort of illegal activities to earn Money.
Some of these uneducated youths stay alongside the road to hail any flashy cars passing by even without knowing the owner or the driver of the car.So many end up hailing the driver thinking the driver is actually the owner.For instance, if you come across them you know how they approach people , they have words they use like:
AND MANY MORE….
Looking at their appearance,they look pretty well okay and most of them are well dressed,use good phones and lots more.When they meet you and hail you for minutes and you ain’t showing up or giving them anything they begin to tell you what they have been passing through all this while. Many usually stay in traffic complaining of not eaten for days, some says they are sick and need money to buy medications.
These usually happens in many states most especially
But mostly happening in Yoruba land,
I was once stopped by a very tall guy at a round about in Lagos,he approached me and he was good in speaking English. He told me how he can’t afford his son’s school fees and can’t even feed him,I asked him why is not working and he told me it’s not easy to work joor…He can’t be doing labour work.so I asked him if he was a student or a graduate and he replied “I’m not a student o baba,school is just a waste of time”. Lol! So I smiled and told him why can’t he engage himself in any labour work and he said ” baba if you know won give me money they go ,wetin be your own self..your question too much”.I gave him#200 and he told me nah wetin you fit give me be this..?But I drove off…
It has also gotten to my notice that many youths who hang around the roadside are mostly engaged in robbery and kidnapping, this is to rampant and it’s not right.
My view is that government should arrest any matured begger who is properly fit (health wise), who is capable and complete. With this government can reduce the rate of robbery and killing.
