Nigeria has now turned to a country where youths, especially graduates finds it hard to secure job or make ends meet.

Many youths now find themselves involve in ritual and illegal businesses in other to get rich and survive. One of the most common of them all is the 'Yahoo-Yahoo' business, which many youths now see as an alternative to get rich fast, rather than following the status quo of working hard to get rich.

It was in this light that the founder of the career platform, BTDT HUB, Mr Dipo Awojide wrote through his twitter handle that youths should stop rushing unnecessarily about getting fast money in other to ride Benz, that with hard work and smartness they might ride Benz in their 40s and 50s.

He wrote: 

"You might not drive Benz in your 20s and early 30s but if you work very hard and smart you might in your 40s and 50s. Stop rushing unnecessarily and getting into crime to get rich."

Gimba Kakanda, a young author who has been endorsed by scholars, writer and journalist as the 'New Nigerian poet to watch', replied Mr. Dipo's tweet.

He wrote: 

"The life expectancy of a Nigerian is 53. We don’t have time, Dipo."

Mr. Dipo responded: 

"LOOL. Most of us will live past 53 years. We have time."
