The wife of the Nigeria’s Vice-President, Dolapo Osinbajo has narrated her past experiences and related to the teenagers’ livelihood as at now.
She mentioned that she was under the bridge in Lagos for quite some time in the past exploring and having an understudy of how the Area boys spend their lives.
She stated this in her address at the Teens Career Conference’ organized by The Everlasting Arms Parish TEAP of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Garki, Abuja.
“For 10 years, I was under the bridge; under the bridge in Lagos with ‘Area Boys’.
“So, every kind of drug that there is, I know about it. I have seen it before and I have seen the effects as well and I will like you to know that the ones that use it are not different from you”, she said.
She also advised the teenagers to place themselves to be of good conducts.
“Some of them too have parents in the church. Some of them have parents with very big names. There are some streets in Lagos that the names of the streets are names of people, some of which have their children under the bridge. There were people whose parents lived in America and yet their children were under the bridge. So, do not even imagine that it cannot happen to you, but you must be an example in your conduct”, she ended.
