[MUSIC] Saratu Hamidu Somaila has uncovered lots of profitable things about PMC which every youth must not miss out in 2021 in this new video

[MUSIC] Saratu Hamidu Somaila has uncovered lots of profitable things about PMC which every youth must not miss out in 2021 in this new video


In the New video released days ago, we found out that the founder of Prod Mind's Concept (PMC), Saratu Hamidu Somaila has explained some profitable things about PMC, which every youth must not miss out in this 2021.

We found people testify about it, the lunching that took place some weeks ago, and the main purpose for the organization.

Watch & Enjoy ~ The Video Below:

Prod Minds Concept is a platform aimed at minimizing the rate of joblessness among the youths through career, skills development and provision of deployable opportunities to maintain standard living.

In the video, the founder spoke to the interviewer below:


Years ago; I miss out on a very important event because I did not know about it until it was over. The event would have served as a golden opportunity needed at that time for me to touch the stars but I missed it and I must not let anybody go through the same thing. I know how it feels like when you missed an opportunity, when you wished time could be reversed, when you feel like there will not be another opportunity for you again. I have experienced it all and that is why I take this time to tell you about Prod Mind’s Concept as it has benefiting things you must not miss.

As a youth that you are, I know I am not wrong to say that you need these three things which Prod Mind’s Concept has to offer.

These things are:
• Step-by-step career guide.
• Unlimited income.
• Business loans.


All of the motivation came from the issue of unemployment faced by youths today and it all begun some years ago when I saw a post on Facebook that the federal govt. of Nigeria was recruiting graduates into a programmed called N-Power in order to reduce the rate of youth’s unemployment across the nation. To be honest, that was when I got to know that there is a socio-economic issue in my country like unemployment but the important thing here was that ever since, I had been looking into the issue in order to come up with an intentional action for you to take so that unemployment cannot stand in your way.

I remember back then, I only researched whenever I got the time but reasons like the ASU’s strike and corona’s lockdown pushed me to speedup this project. A lot of things are going wrong and I know that I must do something to prevent you from losing your path along with it. Therefore, this platform was launched at this time so that you can successfully make your way to your dreams amidst all that is happening.

I was shocked during my research because the issue is not just in my country but all over the globe and millions are affected by it. What pained me during my research was that I kept seeing posts at different sites saying that youths are unemployable that is why they are unemployed. Although advices and suggestions were given in those posts, they are either vague or complex. For that reason, I became more interested in looking for a way to organize something, something that you can do so that no one can call you unemployable. Something that would bring you out of the shadows of people’s mercies. An action that you can take so that no one would think that he did a favor by offering you a job.

[NEWS] Buhari Will Kill All Of Us – Nigerians React To Hike In Electricity Tariff

[NEWS] Buhari Will Kill All Of Us – Nigerians React To Hike In Electricity Tariff


Nigerians on social media have condemned President Muhammadu Buhari-led government over another hike in electricity tariff.

The Nigeria Electricity Regulation Commission (NERC) on Tuesday announced a new electricity tariff hike of 50%.

The new tariff regime is expected to take effect from the 1st of January and to be complied with by customers of the 11 electricity Distribution Companies.

According to NERC, the 14.9% inflation rate rise in November 2020, foreign exchange of N379.4/$1 as of December 29, 2020, available generation capacity, US inflation rate of 1.22% and the Capital Expenditure (CAPEX) of the power firms resulted in the new tariff.

It would be recalled that the last tariff hike by the government almost led to the shutdown of the country by the Nigerian Labour Congress and Trade Union Congress.

The recent development has stirred reactions from Nigerians who criticised Buhari’s government and accused it of being insensitive to the plight of Nigerians especially at a time when the country’s economy is not stable.

Some called for a reversal of the hike, adding that Nigerians were already suffering due to the pandemic.

Here are some comments from Twitter


“Every other country in the world is trying to mitigate the global economic situation but Nigeria is throwing more and more burden on her citizens. Now, in the space of 6 months, they have increased the electricity tariff twice. Buhari would kill us all.”


“This Buhari government is out to kill us oo. So after a 50% increase in electricity tariff from 1st Jan, 2021, we should be expecting another round of power tariff increase in July 2021. the intent of the govt now to the people is becoming murderous. How do we survive?

@Ibu Thomas

“Dear President Buhari, today’s increase in electricity tariff barely 3 months after the last increment, in addition to the hike in fuel and other commodities is a clear testament of your administration’s disdain & hatred for Nigerians. It’s the height of insensitivity and wickedness.”


“1:30am on Jan 1st, my phone chimed. Woke up to check, it was a credit alert from the Govt of the country I live in – COVID stimuli. Jan 5th and I’m just reading Buhari’s FG is increasing electricity tariff by a whole 50%. Still no jobs. Still no stimulus. No palliatives.”


“Dear President Buhari. Don’t you get tired of punishing Nigerians? Electricity tariff increment is the height of your insensitivity to the plight of average Nigerians. ”


“I was complaining to Jos Disco last week that what I used to pay for less had more Electricity Units than the increased Tariff. Now Buhari & NERC have increased it again. Only God can rescue us from this Man and his Cohorts. No stimulus package! NOTHING.”


“New Electricity tariff hike, VAT increase, Petrol price increase, Snowballing inflation rate, Skyrocketing Unemployment rate and then, there is a recession. All from the stables of President Buhari, the clueless and incompetent one.”


“They never increased the quality of power supply and only increased tariffs. Nigerians should go back to the olden days and use lanterns and bush lanterns. I know most of our people generate their own electricity with their generators. Buhari is a broken government, senseless and directionless.”


“What sin did Nigeria commit against this present government? How do Buhari and his cabinet expect the poor Nigeria citizen to pay this hike in electricity? People barely feed three times a day and keep on increasing electricity tariff. Buhari resign.”


“Federal government hikes electricity tariff by 50%. I think, seeing Nigerians suffering gives Buhari and APC erection.”
