A young man who earns a living by selling roasted yams, potatoes and plantains by the side of the road has stated that it is his desire that his children continue the business when he dies.
According to him, he had taken over the business from his industrious mum who had passed on in undisclosed circumstances when he was 19.
He said he ventured into his mum's business as things were difficult for the family. Now, the 24-year-old caters for his 5 younger sisters through the business.
Matthew who is nursing plans of expanding the roadside hustle into a big brand said he, one day, hopes to return to school.
On how he was able to master the nitty-gritty of the business, Matthew said he had keenly studied and watched his mum doing the business while she was alive.
He stated that he learned to haggle properly, relate well with customers and get the materials required in the preparation of the edibles.
The hardworking Nigerian went on to advise youths to desist from illegal means of livelihood as the success rate is always short-lived.
