Billionaire businessman, Obi Iyiegbu, popularly known as Obi Cubana, has revealed the reasons why youths want to get rich quickly.
Cubana in a post on his Instagram account blamed pressure from family members and the society at large for being responsible for the syndrome.
According to the businessman, society dictates how the youths should act.
He further stated that some people are even depressed because of the number of likes they get on their posts.
Cubana wrote, “In a world where we want everything quick, youths are often faced with a lot of pressure from both society and members of their families.
“Our youths are constantly forced to act and feel a certain way and society enjoys dictating how the youths should behave.
“They feel the pressure of fitting into society’s norm and while the family is fun, it can also be full of tensions.
“These have made many of them resort to drug abuse and excessive use of alcohol.
“Many young people have to leave school just to fend for their families, especially young girls, who are on the streets because they need to send money home.
“There are pressures from school to pass exams and get a certain grade, pressure from the local churches to donate for one thing or another and pressure from friends.
“Even on social media, some are now depressed for not getting a certain amount of likes on their posts.”
