A Nigerian man has narrated how he purchased sewing machine for a girl after she completed her apprenticeship program but she sold it to buy a “big phone”.
According to the man, identified as @Kene_Nnewi on Twitter, the girl had just been set free by her madam, so he decided to help her get on her feet business-wise.
Kene said he advised the graduate apprentice to focus on her career and not be distracted by boys and gifted her the machine.
However, she sold it and used the money to buy an expensive phone.
“Bought this teenage girl sewing machine after her madam set her free last week…..Gave her advice to leave small small boys and focus on her career… Guess what? Her mama called me this evening to tell me that her daughter sold the machine and bought big phone,” he tweeted.

See some reactions…
Most of these teenagers are been influenced by so many things this period. Her mum telling that, she wants You to take action on her. Don't just keep quiet you have to take some actions to caution her probably next time she will think well.

You've done your part. Nothing to feel bad about.
The rest are on her and her family. If they can't guide her right as a teenager, that's their problem.

Tell her what she can do to be better. Many teenagers are prone to peer pressure. With this time where many young people have big phones, it's only natural for her to want that too. She's not a lost cause

Something is fundamentally wrong with the cognitive domain of our teenagers and Young adults.
Someone elderly told me months ago that he feels sorry for my generation but the Generation next bleeds his heart,with this story you shared i agree totally with his analogy.
