Nigerian Rapper, Vector has revealed at the maiden edition of Street Voices, a youth advocacy event held at the Yaba College of Technology, Lagos, stated that the harsh living conditions has pushed youths into fraud.
The rapper who argued that no Nigerian youth had ever dreamed of ending up on the streets, stated that they were forced by circumstances beyond their control. According to Vector, the prevailing harsh living conditions pushed some youths into surviving by any means possible, including through fraud.
“The youths need to adopt good mentors, rather than those who will lure them into fraudulent activities. The Internet age should afford the youths an opportunity to make better and informed choices. But the Federal Government must play its own role also. I see an advocacy group like Street Voices as a forum to lend their voices to critical issues affecting the youth and the Nigerian society as a whole” he said.
