Nigerian youths have been charged to use superior brain power to create wealth, instead of indulging in fraudulent activities.
The General Superintendent of Renewal of Grace Ministry International, Pastor Yohanna Paul, made the charge in Awka in a lecture titled, “Crypto Currency, Youths and the emerging cashless world”.
The cleric noted that youths could create wealth through ideas and live sincere and confident lifestyles without involving in fraud, or being pursued around by anti-graft agencies.
The lecture which was put together by members of the Emerging Markets Association of Nigeria (TEMAN) was attended by young Bitcoin executives, including Mr Linus Williams Odinaka Ifejika, popularly known as B-Lord.
The occasion was also used to felicitate with the popular Bitcoin operator, Ifejika, who was wrongly arrested by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), and labelled a fraudster, while his exotic cars were impounded.
The cleric said: ‘Not every youth who is rich and drives expensive cars is into fraud. A good example is B-Lord (Ifejika). He has worked hard, and even at a young age, he is already living his dream.
‘We charge you young people to also emulate him, and to use superior brain power to create wealth for yourselves.
‘We are also happy for him that he challenged his arrest by EFCC in court and was able to win. His cars and other property have already been returned to him. You can live a rich life and not be afraid of arrest.’
Other Bitcoin operators who attended the event also felicitated with Ifejika over his exoneration by the court from fraud.
