A Nigerian man identified as Asim Balarabe Yazid has inspired people on social media after narrating how he invested the money he wanted to use in buying an iPhone 12 Pro Max.
Asim said instead of using the money to get the gadget, he used it to open a suya joint, adding that he has been able to employ three people.
According to the young man, the business is growing and he has some money left to pay salaries for three months.
In his words:
"I was planning to buy an iPhone 12 Pro Max, but instead I opened @suyacraze outlet. Now shop is open, business is growing Alhamdulillah, 3 people are employed and still have remaining change to pay salary for 3 months. I believe saving to invest is better than saving to spend."
Nigerians on social media applauded him for taking such a step.
"This is someone who understands that the devaluation of naira/increase in dollar price mostly depends on us,our behaviour with our currency on a large scale,Not solely the government. If up to 40% of our youth think like him inflation and other economic downturns would be history."
"Baarakallah! It's good to have one's priority right. May Allah bless your endeavors and ours as well."
