Sir, I really like you explanation and down to earth responses, Nigerian youth want it “sharp sharp” and are not ready to take the pain to get to the top, someone is using his resources to train you and put you on the path of success after four years you will be independent, if patient you could be rated as one of the techies who has contributed to tech world. I read about Oluwatoyin Yetunde Sanni aka Yeti or “Wogrammer” and many other Andela products, Yetunde made it to TOP 50 VISIONARY WOMEN IN TECH TO WATCH IN 2017. Within four years you will be exposed to the tech world beyond what you could get any where in Nigeria. I took my time to read more about what Andela program entails, I made research on the program, their sponsors and their investors, their dreams and the purpose of the program, this is golden for Nigerian Youth, Money should not be the priority but what you could get at the end of the program should be what you focus on, I realized if one would be patient and focused, someone can actually achieved the extra ordinary, in a twinkle of an eyes the four years is here.
Andela has successfully exposed and opened the eyes of Nigerian youth to tech world, Sir, I would say this, out of the thousands companies in Nigeria only few could afford to pay reasonable remuneration as Andela does. I read people’s comment and I feel so sorry for Nigerian youth, they are all product of dilapidated “edusystem”. Anyone could find out time to read about contractual agreement, it breaches and consequences. A seen on Andela website "Andela is not easy. Andela is a commitment, and in many ways a sacrifice. But it is a worthwhile one, and if you give it your all, you will become truly world-class. " Sacrifice and world class should be the focus, If you can take the pain, pay the sacrifice I bet anyone, you would become what you wanted to. The only sacrifice here is the learning aspect not even the benefit, for the sacrifice will produce much more than what the benefits Andela acclaimed.
