A former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, says societal values have disintegrated to the extent that online fraudsters otherwise known as ‘Yahoo boys’ have become role models in Nigerian society.

Diezani said this while delivering a lecture at a virtual event which was also attended by her former boss, ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, on Friday.
Speaking at the event organised by the Ijaw National Development Group on Friday, Diezani stressed the need for mentorship of Ijaw youths.

The former minister said, “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.

This is a travesty of an unfolding tragedy for us. Why have I spent time talking about fatherless homes and the impact it has on our children? The truth of the matter is that an irresponsible boy tends to become an irresponsible man and it is therefore a vicious cycle. If you plant yam, you cannot harvest plantain.”
Diezani said there are no shortcuts to progressing in life, adding that only hard work could guarantee success.

The former minister added, “There are no shortcuts to working your way up the ladder of life. Progressing in life, in work and relationships – marital or otherwise – is always dependent on consistent effort and hard work.

“As we create more responsible young men, we will generate more responsible fathers which will in turn engender a more sustainable society and build a greater nation of successful Ijaw men and women.”
Diezani said societal values had collapsed mainly because of weak family bonds caused by broken homes.

She said in some instances, children raised by single parents do well in life but it should not be the norm that children should be brought up by single parents.

Yahoo Boys are far better than you Diezani. Have you forgotten how you abused your office and stole away public funds. People like you make young ones in the country go into yahoo yahoo because you have stolen money meant to develop their future. Your son call them yahho yahoo. Indeed! If your son is proud of you as a mother, then he is the biggest yahoo yahoo. The shortcut you took stealing nigeria public fund is indeed hardwork. Shamless Animal.
If you are bold enough, come to Nigeria and anwser to the Fraud charges against you bei EFCC. Jonathan is even listening to you and probably applauding you too. Wicked souls. Shamless Animals.
The Wrath of God will certainly visit you.

Fully support you bro. It shall never be well with these wicked people past or present and their generation who stole and are still stealing our common wealth and has the guts to blame youths. though i don't support internet crimes but they've stolen almost everything and left nothing to develop these youths. God punish and roast bad leaders

Bro ! I’m extremely thankful to your in-depth and a well articulated comment .More knowledge bro .Jah guide .These criminals corrupt the society from which the youthman borrowed their inspiration which led majority to chose the wrong path to easy success .Of course , no justification for being a criminal as such no justification for embezzling or stealing from national treasury.These political office holders abused their respective offices without conscience, forgetting their actions is a disaster to the governed thst is the society they governed.Just as she said it’s a vicious circle,such circle continues in an evolutionary circle that has no sight to the end and Ofcourse the voiceless are gotten pushed to the brims.Nigerian youths will never desist from nefarious activities as long as corruption persists in the country.Who go be Una mumu .Yall want a good image Nigeria without a leadership sacrifices and accountability. Jah fire burn y’all
