A local man has taken to social media, celebrating the incredible milestone of purchasing his first ride. The 22-year-old is an accomplished graphic designer and couldn't help spoiling himself just a little.
"At 22 I bought my brand new Polo tdi" he captioned the post.
While some social media users took the time to wish the young man well in his new ride, others took it upon themselves to warn the new driver about the many financial pressures that come with car ownership.
Check out some of their saucy comments below:
"You should have bought property"
"If it's not cash why advertising urself if I may ask'
"Why you people hating. He's 22 and got a car 19 and got a bicycle"
"His face looks 35 though."
"The bank owns it for now buddy. Your insurance premiums are high, I can tell just by looking at your face. Quick one: go for advance driving lessons, if you haven't."
"Sponsored by mom and dad"
"Congratulations, were you financed or you pay it yourself?"
"It doesn't matter not everyone qualifies for a car stop being so bitter"
"Mina at that age I bought a house"
"With your parent's money yeah."
Meanwhile, Briefly News previously reported that Abbas Jibrin was recently celebrated on social media over his automobile ingenuity when he was 21 years of age.
In a Twitter post by @OvieAli, Abbas had led a team of brainy engineers who designed and manufactured a weird-looking electric car in Turkey. The tweep shared an image of the Nigerian engineering genius along with some pictures of the car.
Some Nigerians bemoaned the level of brain-drain that is prevalent in the country, others wondered the idea behind the car's shape and style.
"What's the idea behind the funny shape all the time. As per cartoon."
"Nice one, but why do electric cars always look this funny tho?"
"Nigerian Engineering genius..." and not Muslim, Christian, Hausa, Igbo or Yoruba.... as par 'new world sentimentality reportage syndrome'. "Another good one by a Nigerian as usual."
''Tag Jelani.. He must see this. An employment opportunity should be offered to him at kona electric cars by Hyundai."
"Don't mind them sir. They thought they have monopoly of invention and creativity in Nigeria."
