Noble Igwe weighs in on the get-rich-quick syndrome and how the society reacts to it.
Amidst the trend of the get-rich-quick syndrome in Nigeria, with a good number of youths and teenagers getting involved in blood money, internet fraud and the likes, a blogger has revealed that the society hardly discourages such behaviors.
Nigerian blogger, Noble Igwe has held the society responsible for the craze for ill-gotten wealth and he highlighted ways the society encourages such behaviour.
He took to his Twitter page to point out that people are celebrated when they show off “overnight untraceable success”. Such people are given titles, preferential treatment, and respect without finding out how the wealth was gotten.
Nobel Igwe claims that as a result, more “people will kill or commit crime to get such a treatment”.
He added that even some religious houses receive donations from anyone with money, not minding the source and families do not question their children’s wealth.
He called on Nigerians to stop celebrating “untraceable wealth”.
