Letter to Nigerian youth

Keep your Degree in a safe custody for future opportunity, and
engage in entrepreneur skills, otherwise you will die poor with ur
degree hustling for white Collier job.
Most of the educated people in Nigeria are poor. Majority of the
educated earn less than N55,000 for a salary before tax and other
deductions. When the deductions are put into consideration, the
net salary comes to around N50,000. The net salary then suffers
from loan deductions of up to N15,000 leaving the salary at around
N35,000. The landlord then demands for his N15,000 and monthly
shopping takes away N10,000 leaving one with a N10,000. The
bus will demand for N300 going to and from work and relatives get
another N2,500. The whole salary is gone and borrowed money
starts operating. The borrowed money includes short loans and
salary advances.
The difference between poverty and prosperity is property. A
prosperous person has property to his name while a poverty
stricken person has no property to show. Using this understanding,
therefore, most of the degree holders are poverty stricken,
borrowing money to buy chicken and chips, pizza, and a car.
The biggest excuse for getting paid such low amounts of money
and having to sit and work for another person for 30 days is THE
DEGREE that one possesses and that’s all. This has made most of
the degree holders very poor to poverty stricken and will die that
way most likely. A degree holder does not know how to generate
money unless that money is generated for the employer. A degree
holder is so dependent on the salary that he can do anything to get
a job but will not think of starting a business of his own to employ

He does not speak English but sells Coke, Fanta and Sprite at N80
each making a profit of N10 on each drink. He also sells chips at
N50 making a profit of N17 on each portion. Not less than 80
students buy chips and a drink every single day. This means he
makes a profit of N27 for a drink and chips and a total profit of
N2,160 per day…every single day. In ten days he makes a profit of
N21,600 in twenty days N43,200 and in thirty days N64,800.

N45,000 every month.
Why are the degree holders poor?
Because they have decided to pride themselves in a degree and
failed to think better than a man who does not have even a
certificate to his name.
Degree holders spend their time liking articles on linkedIn and
facebook but never have any care in the world to implement what
they like. Poverty starts from the mind, a mind that just likes things
but never to implement those things.
If you want to progress, keep that degree and start thinking better
than someone without a degree. There’s no white collar Job
anywhere bro!
Be prepared to get your hands dirty and work like an ox for your
business. Your hard work will pay off one day.
