A tricyclist (keke napep rider) in Damaturu on Tuesday has proudly said he makes more money than what most graduates earn as salary.
The tricyclist identified as Bukar Babagana disclosed in an interview with New Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Damaturu that he averagely makes #4000 naira per day.
“Most times I make up to five to six thousand naira, unless am not strong or my vehicle is faulty.
“After all budget are being attended to, I save two thousand naira everyday, which is more than what most of the university graduate, who so lucky to be employed, earn as their take home.”
While giving answer to a question whether he envies other young men that work and earn salaries, Babagana said:
“I don’t envy them, sometimes I help some of them. I have a lot of friends that mocked me when they were attending University. The story is different today, I don’t mock them though, but I do what is in my capacity to help them”
He also added that:
“This business is a secret to financial freedom to whoever takes it serious.”
A reasonable amount of Nigerian youth have ventured into tricycling business due the fact that it gives them a better option of not staying jobless.
