Actually give as little support as it's necessary. How can I give much to someone I am not married to.

Never train a girl in school. Never start a business for her. Never expose her to life. When you have d slightest financial setback, they leave u.
No matter how much I love a girl I would never invest in her until I marry her.

I like to share a story with anyone seeing this right now. If you dont like reading long tales. Better scroll pass this. It might get long.
I went to a bank's atm today and my card got trapped. I visited the bank's CC unit to make such complaint. They however told me that CBN's directive was to perforate any trapped card and that the card holders can as well go to their bank branch to obtain a new one. This was ridiculous to me (they probably have their reasons though). So immediately, I imagined the number of persons that have had their cards trapped and perforated. My mind began to brood over the stress in getting a new card.
As it is customary for me, this was a problem and a tech solution was begging to be built. Instantly, i decided i needed to solve this problem.
As i listened keenly to the CC agent, my mind took a journey into the future. I saw myself using an ATM machine without an ATM CARD. This was unbelievable, simply preposterous and evidently impossible (esp in Africa). But, for me, IMPOSSIBLE is NONSENSE and IMPOSSIBLE actually means IT WOULD TAKE A GREAT DEAL OF EFFORT to me.
Now that I saw that was possible, my mind began to find ways to make it possible. and alas,
I had an epiphany and an algorithm was before my very eyes. Just then,the 2 edges of my lips separated further so that i would appear to smile. In other not to be too excited, I asked the CC if there was a CBN bank policy that disallows my algorithm (I didnt tell her. I just gave her a scenario) from happening. My excitement reached climax when she said NO
The CC agent finished talking looking bewildered by my sudden smile.
how was i to tell her that i found a solution?
How was i to say that future financial transactions would be cashless and cardless?
How was I to explain this epiphany i got?
The distance from the CC unit to the bank exit door was only few centimeters apart but it seemed like I was journeying round the world in 80 days.
I was so excited. In my euphoria, i had thought of how i would start writing some codes. How i would call one or two and share this with them. In fact, I had already built a team in my head. I already knew who would be in the team.
I got to the security door and pressed the green button. While the other half of the security door was yet to open, i thought of how convenient this system would be. The smile had refused to wear off. It was just too cool.
CASHLESS AND CARDLESS system of payment ? isnt something you find everyday.
The other half of the security door opened and BINGO. That was when it happened.
I began to laugh hysterically.
People around thought I was losing it. I laughed so hard, i hurt my ribs.
BUT WHY WAS I LAUGHING?.
I'll tell ya.
As the other half opened, I was greeted by the humid air and scorching sun. Somehow, i suddenly realized that the bank had some AC. And that must have given me the feel that made me think the way i did.
As the other half opened, Reality seemed to have pressed a "FACTORY RESET" button on me. I was seeing BLACK PEOPLE (Africans/Nigerians) and they were supposed to be the FIRST users of this technology.
Then I laughed.
I laughed because I realized Nigerians still live as though this was 1980 and as such are not receptive to technology especially if it is new and was born in their homeland OR become receptive only when everyone else is using it. (Nigerian: Ok, the idea is good. But Nna, how many persons dey do cashless and cardless for other countries?)
I laughed because i was seeing 2030 in 2016 and I was the only one seeing it and only a few would probably see it too. (NIgerian: My friend,you better wake up oo.. even 2017 is far.... You are talking 2030. u wan kill yourself?)
I laughed because despite several platforms that gives us the opportunity to go CASHLESS. We still choose the old-fashioned way. (Nigerian: is it your old-fashion? i like the fashion like that.)
I laughed because NIgerians have not adopted the CASHLESS system of payment.
How then were they going to understand CARDLESS system of payment?. (NIgerian: ki lo de, is it you that think pass sef?)
I laughed because the Nigerian financial eco-system made me look foolish. (NIgerian: You think say you get sense b4? na naija u dey ooo.. think like a true nija)
And i probably laughed at my foolishness. (Nigerian: Its good, you have come back to your senses)
My laughter turned sour and i began to look into the heavens as if to ask THE CREATOR why he made me share nationality with Nigerians and Race with Africans?
.....And he lived happily ever after.

You are not paying anything for the training.
|Jobs/Vacancies / Re: For Your Information by Phranex(m): 8:37pm On Dec 28, 2016|
I didnt check. I passed the information to the tech guy in charge. There was no response. He either was very very busy or he couldnt find anything. If he did, he would have told me
|Jobs/Vacancies / Re: For Your Information by Phranex(m): 8:35pm On Dec 28, 2016|
one thing is certain. This is not for you. Thats all you need to know. If you are taken, you are gonna place money above our customers. This isnt healthy for continuity in business

The means of identification is very essential. Maybe this isnt for you. Good luck.
|Jobs/Vacancies / Re: For Your Information by Phranex(m): 5:18pm On Dec 28, 2016|
Maybe you should try again with a different username in the username section. Type in your full name in the name section. Good luck.
|Jobs/Vacancies / Re: If You Are Unemployed, I Think You Should Do This...IBADAN OR.South west only by Phranex(m): 5:07pm On Dec 28, 2016|
You actually think i am frustrated .
This is making me laugh. Maybe I am, Who wouldnt get frustrated sharing nationality with majority of people who dont think? On the international scene, other countries think we are plain lazy. I received a main from "Y-combinator" (please, browse to see who they are) stating that Africa is not ready for a tech shift that most of us still do things as though we were living in the 1800's (This is a paraphase). I cant believe those guys compared our company to the large majority of africans who are probably primitive (in thoughts). Tell me the truth, if it was you, would you not be frustrated sharing nationality with people who are considered primitive in thoughts?
Although, if ever i am frustrated.. it wouldnt entirely because i share nationality with those africans or because Y-combinator compared us with those africans but because even the africans (for whom we were rejected) do not encourage innovations.
I asked a techpreneur a question.
If facebook,instagram,and twitter were african.. Would the world know it? He told me the plain truth. he said "probably not".
Despite the fact that Y-combinator refused our innovation because they thought african was primitive, have we stopped getting more workers?
have we stopped our business?
I can assure you that come june 2017, we would have had about 10,000 workers getting paid weekly. My team and I have decided to man up and be the VC we need. We just need to take a portion of our salary every month to finance our startup. Two of my team members are professional doctors (I am too), one is a financial consultant (he was one of the project managers for REMITA). The others are software architects working in a several I.T firms. If the very worst happens, we would still be alright. But then, all the jobs we would have created by virtue of our startup would have gone down the drain.
Do you have an idea of how many persons GOOGLE,FACEBOOK,TWITTER,INSTAGRAM etc have given jobs to? Imagine they were non-existent, how many of those nnumbers would be employed?
At this point, it is african for you to think that i am giving all this explanation because i truly am frustrated. .
Like i said, Maybe I am.Or Maybe not!!

Listen, I have no wish to derail your thread. I just feel for the large number of people who want to join your whatsapp because they are unemployed. Chances are the first few weeks would be burning with emotions. At this stage, all of you would be having a feeling of pseudo success. But as the day goes by, many would be leaving the group after probably realizing that they need money or a job. What i hope to do is try to take as much persons away from the unemployed market in whatever way we can. we are aiming at 450 persons.
And by the way. To answer your question. I can't.

i have always believed people who are unemployed are lazy and not creative at all. I mean this statement. Now you might think that i am employed. The truth is Yes i am. But i am my own boss. Because i wanted to help reduce the unemplyment rate in nigeria.. I founded a team and we decided to solve a problem. That problem requires people to solve them but we first want people to have such value in themselves.
In the future hopefully, my team would be regarded as the largest employer of labour in Africa. But you know, the people we take in as staff has to have one skill or the other. The question is HOw many of these unemployed people have a skill?
I hope we are able to give substantial number of persons jobs come 2017. Although, come Febraury next year.. we would have absorbed at least 450 persons from the large unemployed circle across Lagos,Abuja and PH.
I created a thread to that effect.
this is it https://www.nairaland.com/3541019/information for those interested.
