Vicky is a 12-year old girl who sells newspaper in order to pay her school fees and fend for her family whenever the need arises. She started selling newspapers at 9 and in Junior Secondary, JSS III in WAPI. She disclosed that she made an average of N500 and N600 proceeds daily from the venture.

She said, “I also gave the regular (daily) for N50.00 and sports newspaper for N20.00 to those who came here to read and return the paper and still sold the paper to those who wanted to buy,

“Many prominent people live in this area, commissioners, House of Assembly members, judges, businessmen and even the present governor of our state before he became governor, Prof. Ben Ayade, used to buy papers from me.

“If there is a breaking news, before  I get here, people are waiting for me, but some days, especially during the rainy season, because of the bad roads, papers arrive here late, except during weekends whether bad road or no bad road, the van drivers do manage to get here on time since the papers are produced early.”

She said the proceeds from the sale of newspaper is used to meet her needs in school and pay her fees, except when there are urgent needs to attend to at home

She further said that she was yet to decide if she would continue being a vendor after her education, but for now, the business is quite lucrative.
