Vendor Says He Built His House And Educated His 15 Children From Selling Newspapers

A Nigerian elderly man identified as Mr Mallam Bawa, a newspaper vendor told BBC News Pidgin that he has been in business for the past fifty one years.

But this time around, he has criticized the decline in Newspaper sales caused by the progress of social media in the recent years.

After the civil war in Nigeria, the Kano resident narrated that he built a house, married a woman and managed to take care of his 15 children through the profits from the newspaper selling business.

The vendor urged fellow Nigerians to start embracing newspapers and stop relying on the internet. His call has sparked several reactions on social media.

You have to adapt to the change. Even electric cars will soon start cruising in Nigeria meaning petrol will be worthless. This will mark the end of Nigerian politics on the international stage,’’ @xwaggaruns wrote.

I was particularly touched by the part where he said that no newspaper company has come out after all these years to appreciate his efforts leave alone celebrating his many years in service,’’ said @sparklesjewelries.

’It is good that at least he did something commendable with the money from his earnings. It is high time that his children start taking good care of him as well,’’ @toesscene wrote.
