(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, has come under heavy criticism for saying that internet fraudsters, popularly called Yahoo Boys have become role models in Nigeria.
The former minister, while delivering a lecture at a virtual event organised by the Ijaw National Development Group, cautioned that the new trend ‘Yahoo Yahoo’ poses a serious threat to Nigeria saying only hard work alone guarantees success.
“The ones that have swag, the Yahoo Yahoo boys as my son would say; these in short, are the role models they are looking at. These are the ones that reinforce negative societal norms and values.” She stated.
African Examiner reports that Diezani is currently facing money laundering, contract scam, among other charges filed against her by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
The anti-graft agency had accused her of fleeing Nigeria for the United Kingdom (UK) in order to escape prosecution and is considering her extradition to face justice.
