Osinbajo advised the youths to explore on the various programmes set up by the federal government and the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to support young entrepreneurs and other Nigerians.
The Vice President made this known while speaking at the first convocation lecture of Kola Daisi University, Ibadan, Oyo State, where he gave an example of many young enterprising Nigerians who made it without engaging in crime.
“Don’t be distracted by the Yahoo Boys that are coming up 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?”
VP Osinbajo, stated that the Nigerian educational system has every potential and capability that could make one succeed in life.
He explained; “So, it is important for us to bear in mind that a Nigerian education is an important credential in the world because you understand the terrain and you understand the law of the land. But you must find out about the support that is available either from the private sector or public sector.”
