A young Nigerian man identified as Aliyu Na Idris, has put up himself up for sale in Kano state.
The 26-year-old an indigene of Kaduna state is said to have been roaming the streets of Kano carrying a placard announcing that ‘he’s up for sale’.
“This man is for sale for N20 million.” The placard reads.
Aliyu Na Idris in a chat with Daily Trust revealed he put himself up for sale due to financial difficulty, and has been on the street for five days looking for who will buy him.
According to him, he initially presented himself for sale in Kaduna, but moved to Kano after he couldn’t find a buyer.
“Even though many people have offered me various prices of N10m, N5m and N300,000 in Kano, I refused because the amount is less than what I expected.” He said.
The young man who is a tailor disclosed his business failed due to the financial crisis, and in the bid to make ends meet he decided to put himself up for sale at N20m.
Speaking on what he’ll do with the money if he eventually gets a buyer, he said,
“I will give my parents N10m; I will give N5m as tax to the state where I was bought, the person who helped in advertising me will be rewarded with N2m while the remaining N3m will be kept for me under the care of the person who buys me for my daily upkeep.”
