If elected president, Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress, or APC, has threatened to turn the “Yahoo guys,” or advance fee scammers, into tech specialists.
If elected president in February, Tinubu promised to establish technology centres for the Yahoo guys.
During his campaign rally in Benin, Edo State, he made this announcement.
The APC candidate, who identified himself as a knowledgeable man, said industrial and technology hubs would be established to turn young people into tools for development.
He said: “I will convert Yahoo boys and make them useful by converting their talents and intellects to produce chips for industries. We can defeat poverty, ignorance and homelessness. We have the knowledge, we have the brain to do it.
“Trust me. I am an expert in finding the way where there is no way. I found a way to tame the Atlantic in Lagos and turn it to a money-making machine.
“Sociologically, we can make mountains, we can climb Kilimanjaro, we can defeat poverty. We will break the shackle of poverty, ignorance and homelessness.”
