If you ask the average youth what is wrong with this country, you’re likely to get a million and one answers varying from corruption to disunity to lack of infrastructure to demon possession.
But the common denominator to all this is simply this; The youths are tired. What can be done about it though? That’s the question.
Well, this author stumbled upon a thread on popular Nigerian forum site Nairaland and found something incredible.
A contributor going by the online moniker, “DDeliverer”, kicked things off by groaning about the economy and the lack of opportunity, the sorry state of electricity in the country and much more. He was tired of it all.
They are tired of the well trotted line of ‘E go better’, tired of all the promises of a better future that they are not experiencing.
Things got to a point where another commentator by the online name of “Cromz” came around and saddened by the wave of hopelessness hanging around the place offered to give N5000 to two people, with the condition that they send their account numbers.
People jumped at the chance with many stating that the N5000 could go a long way for them and they started sending account numbers while everyone waited to hear their testimony.
It came and more and more people began to follow Cromz’s example. Forefront in this were; “Ymodulus”, “hadura29” , “Ayo7” and “Agarawu” all of whom asked for people’s account numbers and banks so as to help. They focused mostly on students and gave amounts ranging from N3000-N7000 to each beneficiary.
Some people took advantage though, creating new profiles in a bid to collect money twice.
