Reactions As OAU Student Defends Yahoo Boys, Says they have Saved Nigeria from Recession

A yet-to-be-identified student of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ife (OAU) has given reasons why he thinks yahoo boys (fraudsters) are blessings to Nigeria rather than a problem in a viral video online.

According to the young man, the nation has these internet fraudsters to thank for saving Nigeria from going into recession, using southwest cities as a case study, he explained how their luxury lifestyle is rubbing off well on the nation’s gross per capita income.

The Undergraduate student made his stance known while speaking at an event on the question ‘is yahoo yahoo an economic lifeline or lifewire?’ 

In his words: “In a country like Nigeria, the standard living of yahoo yahoo boys has helped save the country from recession. 

“Because, according to findings, in most southwest cities, yahoo yahoo boys actually dominate the best estate, they use the most expensive cars, they buy luxuries and from the top-notch boutiques because they have a lot of money to share about. 

“With this, our gross per capita income has been able to increase, thereby saving our economy from collapse.”
