Nigerians And The Get-Rich-Quick Syndrome..

Nigerians are generally (BUT a few) suffering from the Get-rich-QUICK syndrome.



Am going to make this as brief as I possibly can, so you could read.


why is it always Nigerians that get caught on drugs trafficking in, and fraudulent activities around the world, and not some other Africa countries. Isn't it glaring to us that Nigerians are given to making quick money. 

That's why ponzi schemes have always thrived in Nigeria, so this get-rich-quick syndrome is not peculiar to the youths alone, it's in our sub-concious as Nigerians, (not entirely generic) to find a shortcut to everything, one of the reasons we not ardent readers, hence excel in academic malpractice, and of course ruin our future by aiding election malpractices and turn to find who to blame for our shortfalls.

Now the economy is comatose, some will have the temerity to say we are looking for ways of making a decent living, then of course i'll ask, during the oil boom and supposed economic progression, were we void of fraudulence and depravity, or that's even when it all started?


So the next time you want to tell that young boy to take it one step at a time, ask yourself, if you are taking it one step at a time.

Hope that was cursory enough.

Torr....

nevertheless,kindly note that DRUGS and PONZI SCHEMES are not the same or related in anyway..

If an individual decides to venture into any ponzi scheme;its A matter of choice!!
You dont tell someone how to take risk with their own money biko!!!

Is it your ponzi??
Is it your scheme??
Is it your money??
Is it your risk??
So why bother??

Ndi uwa self!!!

Live & let's live abeg! Its still people like you that insult people on this blog who come to ask for help. Is it your Ponzi?

Princess Scheherazade said...

@Emmanuel, it isn't just Nigerians involved in fraudulent stuff around Africa.
It's just that we have a large (the largest in Africa) population and even if a tiny fraction of that population is involved in fraud, it comes to a large number in total.
In reality we may have a smaller percentage of our population involved in such fraudulent practices than other African nations.

Same goes for Ponzi schemes and Multi Level Marketing (MLM)
The principle of successful MLM is really based on Pareto's rule, or the 80/20 rule.
Basically, the greater your exposure, the higher your probability of converting prospects to members.
A large population increases access to exposure, and so on.

Of course, the economy being in recession doesn't help matters as people seem more desperate now and will do practically anything to survive but I don't believe that outrightly makes us the most fraudulent.

Let me say ponzi schemes and drugs are two different things. Drugs have a more damaging effect to the carrier and the entire populace. Ponzi schemes will only damage your pocket. We all want to make money and be rich so don't let us deny that fact cause we all have bills to pay and responsibilities. The problem with Nigerians is greed..... not being contented. People will stuff their bank accounts full and fill their houses with money and still be scared that their generation yet unborn might go broke. Bunch of insecure people in government. Having. Majority of people patronising ponzi schemes are hard working people who can't pay their basic needs and need additional sources. They mean no harm....the only harm in it all is the ponzi scheme operators who are ready to scam them. But they also know it's a risky business. So what's life without taking a few risk.

@Emmanuel Maduneme
Seems to me u r a young graduate/NYSC member who has a passion to write. I won't discourage you but when writing/addressing a large constituency, u need to be widely read and have an open mindset.

Fantastic issue to wrote about; delivery wasnt excellent.

Your example (drug peddling/pronzi patronage) dosen't make sense. You could have done better with other vices such as armed robbery, kidnapping, money rituals, and Corruption at the higher level cos those who are rich wants to remain rich or get more rich.

Having said that, your conclusion also is so harsh..... Anyone on the wrong lane knows exactly where he/her is, that dosent stop him from advising other to maintain the right lane.

Afterall, all we heard from our parents while we grew was "I WAS THE BEST IN MY CLASS"........ Blah blah blah..... If my dad was the last in class and needed to encourage me, of course the phrase above is his best bet.

Thanks Emma. Next time, consult widely before you put pen to paper.

Anonymous 11:51,what a terrible advice and "friend" you are. That girl needs to cut you off. You are a destiny destroyer. She should steal and when she's caught, would you serve the sentence for her in jail?
God forbid your kind around my children cos I definitely can't keep your type around me.

Get money quick is directly proportional to the number of churches that preach ONLY prosperity and "making it". What is the ratio of these "churches" in Nigeria to other African countries.

As paul wrote to Timothy; the foundation of the Lord's house stands sure with this inscription; "the Lord knows those that are his and let he that name the name of the Lord depart from iniquity".
