Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri has advised Nigerians on the need to have a side hustle.
He stated that youths shouldn’t limit themselves to their office work as it can fail them anytime. And with the growing increase in automation and artificial intelligence which can take over many jobs in the next ten years, there is need to have an alternative source of income.
He admonished them to get a side hustle, build it up and when it’s bringing income for them, they should quit their office job or rather be open to various investments.
He wrote via his IG page:
“If your boss discovered an app that could do your job, he will sack you in two seconds? So, why would you leave yourself so vulnerable to him? Start a side hustle now. Grow it. When it can pay your bills and more, then it is time to sack your boss and focus on it. Automation and artificial intelligence are eradicating 25% of jobs in ten years. Research it. Don’t wait for machines to take your job. Take control of your future. Invest in a rental property. Or a farm. Or sell something. Don’t rely on your job, because you job won’t rely on you”.
