Reactions as Nigerians open cement shop for an old man

@ObinnaDesmondd said:

"THIS IS NOT A GOOD MOVE by buying a full truck at first. Most of them will cake in the shop before he gets to sell them unless he’s lucky. You start the business with like 300 bags or 450 bags which is half of the truck until he builds a customer base."

@HenryOJackson commented:

"You’ve done so much for the culture than any elected representative."

@whykavelli remarked:

"Baba is eating good, things we love to see."
