Recently, there’s been a lot of conversations going around recommending Tech as an alternative to yahoo yahoo, this I believe was started in good faith, based on the idea that employment is the solution to unemployment and with tech being a good collar job with low entry barrier, it’s understandable why anyone would mention is as a solution to yahoo yahoo.
However, naso this discussion escalate sharp sharp ooo, with people now comparing Yahoo money to Tech money, the access to yahoo mentors to tech mentors and that the environmental factor that pushed people to yahoo is the root cause of the problem. For a moment, is sounded like people were justifying yahoo yahoo.
So let me give a brief definition of yahoo yahoo and tech:
Yahoo Yahoo : Fraud also known as scam, collecting money under false pretence such as (fake relationship , fake business, fake loans, stealing pension funds, even COVID relief funds. etc.) Other related fields are : Robbery. Basically any illegal and criminal work.
Tech : Working legally either for yourself or for an organisation and getting salary at the end of the month. Works such as ( Building websites, building mobile apps, marketing, security analyst etc.) Other related fields are : Doctors, Engineers, Store worker, Teacher, Sales person, etc. basically, any honest and legal work.
So when we call a spade a spade, on what grounds do we compare these two fields? Because they both make use of computers? Doctors and Organ harvesters make use of the same tools, are they comparable? Armed robbers and Police (In a sane environment) both use guns, are they comparable ? Terrorists and soldiers both use bombs and assault riffles, but are they comparable? Soldiers are honest and noble officers, they don’t deserve to be compared to terrorists. So you get the point now…
If you make excuses for Fraudsters today, you might as well make excuses for armed robbers tomorrow. Teachers are not being paid well, you don’t see them doing child trafficking. Let’s work to get a better economy and create better access to quality education and reduce unemployment. I swear I know say e no easy, but when you see the lives that have been destroyed through this, you self go know say bad thing na bad thing.
By the way: Yahoo boys and tech bros in my context here are not gender specific. Abeg make nobody find reason to drag me...
