The days of yahoo boys are numbered, says Yemi Osinbajo


Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo has stated that the days of internet fraudsters popularly called ‘yahoo boys’ are numbered, as he urged Nigerian youth not to be distracted by them.

He stated this while delivering the first convocation lecture of Kola Daisi University, Ibadan, Oyo State, the Vice President who gave examples of many young Nigerians who have made it without cutting corners, stated that these internet fraudsters will go to jail.

The Vice President urged youth to access various programs set up by the Federal Government and the Central Bank of Nigeria to support young entrepreneurs and other Nigerians, adding that there is need for them to also embrace integrity and character in order to excel in life.

Osinbajo said; ”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. The point is that 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.
