I have been introduced to money rituals many times – LAUTECH graduate who wants to return his certificate



A graduate of the Ladoke Akintola University, Ogbomoso, who caused a stir days ago has explained the ordeals he has passed through since he left school in 2015.

He went back to the varsity to return his certificate while also demanding all the money he paid the school.
He said all efforts to secure a job had been fruitless.


He said, in the process, he had been introduced to money rituals although he did not say he had ever tried such.
According to Alaba, he tried selling cow skin ponmo, the business failed.
In an interview with ‘Saturday Punch’, he further noted that he went into farming but cattle destroyed his farm.
He said.


“Many times, I have been introduced to it (money ritual); not less than four times. If not for God, I would have gone into money-making ritual. If one considers the frustration, how people treat you, how they look down on you because you don’t have money, one will go crazy.
“In fact, there are many people who no longer pick my calls. People can frustrate you with their attitude and push you into what you don’t want to do. It has been God that has been holding and keeping me strong.


“After my national youth service, I tried to secure a job but didn’t get anything reasonable. I later got a piece of land and went into farming. I invested some money in it but I couldn’t get anything out of it. I later sold the land and went into the sale of ponmo (animal skin). I did that alongside my wife. But we couldn’t get anything out of that too. So, I decided to look in the direction of the talents that God has given me, which is entertainment. I am talented in singing, dancing, acting and comedy.

In fact, I have been making social media skits for some time now. I remember that during my service year in NYSC I won MTN talent hunt for up-and-coming musicians. But things have been very rough for me.


“Cows used to disturb us. They destroyed my farm and that of the man beside mine. The man used to help with his tractor to clear my land. But cows destroyed our farms. I have been through a lot of things that I can’t be talking about now; let’s just leave it at that.”
