A United Kingdom-based Nigerian Prophetess, Mary Olubunmi Dasmola has sent a warning to Nigerian youths.
The clergy woman, in a statement released to the press warned Nigerian youths to avoid the “get rich syndrome” and fix their eyes on God instead.
She stated that the recent increase in internet fraud is based on the hunger for material things.
She went ahead to blame the government for not educating the youths properly thereby making them go into fraudulent acts
She said: “In Nigeria, we seem to have a section of youth that have lost touch with purpose, hence, the consistent stench in the moral fabric of our society.
“The rise in cyber crime most notably called ‘yahoo yahoo’ and even kidnapping is hinged on the love for material things.
“The government both present and past have failed to properly address the issues facing most sectors of the country. Today, for instance, the youths are getting wrong notions that education is worthless and time wasting.”
She subsequently encouraged the youths to desist from such nefarious means of making money and place their trust on God.
“The Good news is that God is still alive and watches over us. Despite all the challenges facing the country, we will continue to leap forward in faith.
“I call on every Nigerian youth to embrace the promises of God, shun evil acts, inculcate strong moral values, develop interpersonal skills and leverage the possible entrepreneurial windows available in the country”, she added.
