MUST READ: Nigerian Man, @iamLORDTM Reveals Why He Can Never Date For Money

A Nigerian man with Twitter handle @iamLORDTM in a series of tweets revealed why he can never date for money and shared the story of his parents to back his claims. According to him, his parents were one time well-to-do bank executives who could afford to give their family the best of everything.

Things took an unexpected turn when in 2005, a new CBN policy forced the consolidation of banks that eventually caused both of his parents to lose their high paying jobs with benefits at about the same time.

Continuing his narration, the young man revealed he had to change school three times in six years because each last one became too expensive for his parents. All the material wealth of his family was gone in a heartbeat and they had to survive on a meagre N40,000 that his mum was earning from working at a fast-food restaurant.

The young man who swore he could have been sent to Harvard to school and be afforded better opportunities at life if the fortune of his parents had not waned said, he realises from that experience that as important as money is, it cannot keep a family.

Read his full post below:

One of the reasons why I can never date for money is because of the CBN Bank Consolidation in 2005. My parents were both bankers. My dad had just moved from UBA to Savannah Bank with all the nice office perks, cars etc while my Mum was in charge of payroll at Hallmark Bank.

If someone had told me that both of them would lose their jobs within the same period, that we would lose all the finest material things, that my Mum would have to support the whole family with N40,000/month working at a fast food, I would have laughed hard at them.

Every night, both of them would watch 10 o’clock news hoping to get news of any form of respite. I lost count of how many shares my Dad made me sign when he was still at UBA. All of them plummeted.

Life is not like the Weather Channel, it does not give you forecast. The Bank consolidation was so bad that i changed school 3 times within 6 years because of expensive school fees.

This is why i love the NY subway. It has to be the most diverse platform in the whole earth. You can’t tell who is a rich man or not. New Yorkers don’t drive cars. All of you are huddled together, you overhear conversations and you learn a lot of things.

It was in these trains & recreational centers that i discovered that for most of them, money is not top 3 attributes they want in a partner. Why put your hope in a relationship when one second at the New York Stock Exchange can make a rich man turn a church rat?

This is why when i see a lot of tweets here and i just go like “Hehehe…you dunno…eventuarry”. Some of our parents have gone through or are going through this tough phase and we never take a lesson or two. Hehehe…eventuarry.

So to my fellow single KINGS, I don’t need to stress how a good woman is very important in our lives.

We will find her, we will marry her and we will cherish her. Udo di.”
